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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours yellow with red hints and smells of the juices that went into making it a shandy. Tastes very much of the berry that was added. Should have had this beer in the summer not the dead of winter

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hmmm, as fruity and fruit-cakeeld up as this beer sounds, it actually doesn’t taste that bad... a nice acheivement from Coors, I mean leinenkugel, given a lot of the beers they’ve put out lately. This one lacks artificial sweeteners and flavors and color as one would expect and just looks like an amber lager with a big white head and tastes like dry fruit and sugar. Drink ths ice cold when you’re done laboring and when its gone drink something else.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Murky peach with a thin off-white head. Sweet and tart aroma of lemonade and a hint of fruit. Taste is unspectacular with lemonade, berry and sweet. Not a beer IMO.

Bottle poured a hazy pinkish amber with a lingering ring of pinkish foam. Aromas of cookie, lemon and berry. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, lemon and light berry with a crisp lemon finish.

120z bottle from jcwatts, guess this was left over from a bbq or something because no real beer dude would buy this. Not going into a crazty real review here because this is not a real beer by any stretch of the word beer. This is a cross between a frjuity soda and an old fashioned wine cooler which was actually flavored beer. This is about as artificial as Michael Jackson’s face while he was still alive. Berry soda with a super slight malt bite at the end sums this up acurately.

Well hopes dropped quick. Maybe if its really hot but otherwise its too fruity for a beer.

From $18 bucks a 12 pack, to $11 bucks in a matter of a couple of weeks. Man, I should’ve known.
My sister likes REAL SWEET beer so I hope she enjoys the 11 pack I’m gonna give her tomorrow.
