Pours like I drank it from the can. Berry and lemon tartness. Plenty of sugar, some light grainy wheat notes. Finishes like leines. Yeah buddy!

Hazy orangish. Lots of lemon on the nose. Ok, as a Leinies fan...this is simply a combo of Berry Weis and Summer Shandy. So to break it down...Lemony sweet and wheat. A decent summer ale but too sweet for too many.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Little aroma. Cloudy, purpley pour is pretty to look at. Malty as hell with TONS of lacing on the glass. Outside of the huge, long lasting head carbonation is virtually non-existent. While that makes it go down ultra smooth, it also affects itís thirst quenching capabilities. Overall this is a bit strange. Itís like Berry Weiss that has been watered down with Summer Shandy. I love Berry Weiss, so the idea of watering it down with anything offends me. Had I never tried Berry Weiss Iíd probably rated this higher.
But this is tasty. Very nice and flavorful. Could use a lot more carbonation, though. And a bit more alcohol.

Confession time: Leineyís regular Summer Shandy has kind of become one of my go-to summer beers, despite whatever low rating Iíve given it here. So I was actually a little bit excited to see this. And itís really not bad, but the "berry" flavors donít add much. The problem, I suppose, is that it seems a bit artificial, like Boo-Berry cereal. Not a deal breaker, but it doesnít really enhance the beer. I will buy this again in the future, but probably as a throw-in in a build your own sixer.

This is surprisingly good. Very refreshing on a hot summer day...and much better than the summer shandy. Very nice berry flavor. If Iím sitting outside when its hot, I could be pounding these. Not sure how it is going to do through the winter though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance was cloudy reddish pink amber with rocky dimisinhing berryish 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are blueberry, boiseberry, blcekberry, gooseberry, and lemonade. Taste was sweet berrysí of blackberry, blue, boise and lemons, that all. Palate was crispy smooth CO2 with light body, then fruity average length finish. Good after mowning lawn session brew...

Bottle into a goblet. Pour is a tan orange, with a light head. Aroma is of lemon with a light malt. Taste is lemon and sweet berry with a light malt under tone. Finish is sweet wash. Almost like a wine cooler.
