In early fall 2012; Leinenkugel’s introduced its newest beer, Lemon Berry Shandy. It is rumored that this was crudely made over the years at Summerfest by combining their Summer Shandy and Berry Weiss. It became fairly popular and even was made in the bars before finally being a beer of its own. Let’s see how it fairs when it comes down to rating. It pours a murky pink color like grapefruit juice with a light pink head. There is a mild scent of lemons and blackberries in the mix as well as wheat. Overall there is a sweet aroma indicating a sweet flavor. This is fairly inviting. The taste of Berry Weiss is very evident here with lots of blackberry juice flavor. There is an after taste of lemon that is a little off-putting. The taste is obviously fruity and kind of awkward throughout. It finishes kind of tangy and sour leaving an unpleasant taste in your mouth. Two decently made beers combined sounds like a good idea, but the execution of the plan falls short. This is a great summer beer when you are thirsty after mowing the yard. But as a rate-able fruit beer, there are a lot better beers on the market. Better than average overall, but not by much.

Botte. Hazy orange pour, minimal head, some lemon and spice in the nose. Mild blackberry, a lot of lemon in the flavor, somewhat sweet.

Backlog rating on 9-14-2012 at Cap n’ Cork Covington Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN beer tasting. This bottled beer has a small off-white head with a lengthy retention, cloudy peachy body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is lemon, berries and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel of this beer is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This beer is easy to drink and does not have much character to it. It is not a beer that left me wanting it again. It is rather boring for me.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium sized fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon and fruit. Flavor matches. Way too easy to drink.

Transfer from BA review on 5-19-13- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a very hazy-murky pinkish orange colored brew. Upon poring there is a big billowy pinkish tinted head that fades rather fast and leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is very sweet with a big aroma of lemonade. Mixed with these smells are some lighter aromas of a blueberry and raspberry smell. Taste – The taste begins with a strong lemonade sweetness mixed with a little bit of a malt taste. The sweeter lemonade flavor remains rather constant throughout the taste and is joined more toward the middle by some flavors of a nondeScript candy like berry. A light amount of a musky and floral flavors come to the tongue at the end leaving an overall sweet lemonade flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the brew was very thin in creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that was on the more average side. Both are good for the sweet and fruity flavors for the brew and make for an easy drinker. Overall – Well not really anything all that amazing. Like a hard lemonade light beer blend. It may be good for a hot summer day after mowing the lawn, but otherwise nothing I would really go for on any real occasion.

"Had last night. Assumed this was fresh, and just an early summer seasonal like everything else, but after drinking it I’m not sure it’s a 2013 beer. Very muddled aroma. Still tart and a touch sweet, but seems muted and (possibly) a little stale too. Not horrid. Not good. I’ve had better shandies."

DATE REVIEWED: August 28, 2014... GLASSWARE: Hoegaarden tumbler... OCCASION: preseason Manziel being Johnny, for better and worse... APPEARANCE: peachy, fuzzy, hazy body; equally fuzzy off-white head; smears unevenly... AROMA:syrupy tart raspberry scents; elicits a sweettart mouthwatering reaction; an unnatural scent for a beer?.. PALATE: lightly fizzy, effervescent champagne-like exit--a soda-like gassiness--creamy late in the glass... TASTE: at first, a teasing of sugary, caramelized feint; some peppermint mixes with the medicinal berry; reminiscent of a Captain Morgan and ginger ale ...OVERALL: another fruity offering from Leinie--and though many of these become repetitious, in this case, the lemon berry is easy drinking, slightly tart and not a bad companion on a warm August night...

Another selection from Leinenkugels for the summer. The combination is not bad but I prefer the Lemon Shandy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
