Good fruity smell which instantly means bad flavor. Pours a pink color with a decent head

Bottled variety at family get together. Hazy purplish amber in color. Nose is a water-wheat with medicinal berry juice. Flavor is a very watery mixed berry/iced tea/lemon flavor with wet, musty basement wheat. Thin and watery.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Reminds me of Strawberry Lemonade. Pink color with little head. It is refreshing, but that is about it.

Really enjoyed this one. Actually tastes like a true shandy and not over the top on the sugar content. Smooth fizzy delicious.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Free bottle courtesy of Crash. Pours a really hazy peach/pink with some various-sized suspended particles and a large, bright-white head that is slowly but nearly completely diminishing. Aroma is of sour lemonade and strawberry Crush soda. For as much lemon sourness is evident in the nose, the flavor is sweet up front, waning slightly into mild sourness. Thin, watery palate with a light wheat and dried grass finish. Tastes increasingly sweet the more sips that you take. Reminds me of Sweet Tarts candy. I can see this being a refreshing fruit beer during the hot summer months, but it’s not for me, as I couldn’t throw back more than one bottle in a sitting.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very light aroma of fruit, tastes like carbonated fruit juice, no finish on the palate, light and refreshing for a hot day, but hardly seems like a beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a rather odd looking pinkish tinged body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The aroma is full on fruit juice, smells like it’s candy or something that comes in a little cardboard box with a tiny straw. The flavor is very sweet with blackberry juice and not a whole lot else. There might be a little yeast and Hefe character, but it’s really hard to find. Mouthfeel is a bit stick and clingy from all the sugar with fizzy soft carbonation. Lingering berry laced finish. This is about as good as all the other shandy crappers out there, clearly marketed at the malternative crowd.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy light copper with light hues of pink and bears a foamy head. Aromas of pink lemonade/blackberry upfront with just a hint of grain hidden behind all the fruitiness. Flavors of light blackberry, hints of pink lemonade, slight grain (which does not mix well), and slight hay. Leaves a light grain like aftertaste. Lightly sweet and light on the flavors. The nose is where the action mostly is, everything else doesn’t mix well or is light.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased as part of the 2013 Leinenkugel Winter Variety 12 pack - Alright, this purplish hued brew smells berryesque, with the flavor adding a citrus bite to the berry/malty base taste. It’s okay.
