On tap at the Mountain Brewers Festival 2013. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A huge sugary berry nose. Tastes of lemonaid and huge sugar, far too sweet for me, Very fake tasting.

I enjoyed this more than the other 12oz canned shandy’s from Leinie, the joke is the "natural flavors" part because it tastes anything but natural, the berries and not juicy filled but rather muted and dulled.. still drinkable on a hot day though.

bottle - Pours hazy light amber and has a fruity aroma, especially lemons. The flavor is very sweet. As another rater said it’s like lemonade. It’s light bodied and refreshing though the fruit comes off as kind of artificial tasting. Okay beer.

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.

Bottle to pint. Looks artificial; an opaque pinkish-orange with white lacing. Smells of wheat and berries.. Tastes like it smells.. Average on the palate. Not my favorite shandy - by any stretch.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Citrus, floral, aroma that is fairly pleasing to the nose.
Appearance: Hazy, pale yellow color with minimal head.
Taste: heavily sour, medium sweetness.
Palate: light body, thin feel, fizzy, abrupt finish.
Overall: I actually hated the first taste, however towards the bottom of the bottle I started to enjoy it. Not bad for a summer time indulgence.
