2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Summer shandy holds a special place in my heart. Was the first craftish beer I got into leading me to where I am now. I however never liked the berryweise. This seems to be a blend of the two. Way too much sugar. An almost artificial berry taste. More like a wine cooler or some sort of sugary ’malt beverage’ thing.

Kinda a wine cooler and beer mix. Not sure if this is real shandy but it's pretty good.

I have never mixed Crystal Light into Miller Lite but if I did, I imagine the result would be something like this. It doesn’t really taste like the lemon or berries depicted on the can but it is tart and a bit fruity so I guess that is close enough. Certainly, I have put worse tasting beers in my mouth and rated them higher but this doesn’t seem to want to be beer at all. Hey, I’ll take it over a Bartles and Jaymes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, 4.2% a/v From a business trip to Toledo Ohio, 2.27.2014
Pours a fruity red colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is very fruity with a bit of citrus, very few hop n otes. Taste is also very fruity, almost like an alcopop/cooler. Palate is very light, high carbonation.
Not a bad beer, but definitely save it for the summer!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-red pour with no head, aroma brought notes of raspberry, lemonade, hints of berry soda, slight tart fruit, very sweet and fruity. Taste is slight tart lemon, berry, soda like notes into a hint of biscuit, finishing sweet. Tastes almost exactly like berry weiss plus summer shandy combined.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of wine cooler sweetness, berries and citrus. Average white head and a medium amber hue. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter and medium tart. Palate is light bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall a typical girlie beer that’s meant for casual pool-side drinking by ladies.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized bright white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The complex aroma was berry floral and fruity. The mild citrus mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of blackberry mild rye orange peel sweet raspberry citrus fruity hops and malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.
