Hazy orangish. Lots of lemon on the nose. Ok, as a Leinies fan...this is simply a combo of Berry Weis and Summer Shandy. So to break it down...Lemony sweet and wheat. A decent summer ale but too sweet for too many.

Aroma is a sweet and fruity malt. Taste is some berry with a background of lemon. Overall just not enough there.

Bottle.
Pours a watered-down-tomato-juice orange with a nose of stark and sweet raspberry and lemon syrup. Flavor is lemony berries and sugary hay. Watery mouthfeel. Wasnt horrible, but one is enough.

Pours a hazy peach color with a white ring. Aroma of a strawberry lemon drop. Very fruity on the palate and the nose. Citrus and berry flavors. Subtle hints of wheat. Very light and sort of watery. Does not taste like beer, tastes like a watered down mixed drink made with ginger ale. I guess it would be good on a hot day at the lake.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottled. Poured an unappealing shade of hazy pink with a dense, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up lemon rind, salt, and blackberries over a weak base of earthy wheat.. some artificial sweetener character.. smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor found watery wheat at the core with sweet lemon-lime juice, tart blackberry seeds, and salt throughout.. refreshing, fairly sweet finish. Light-bodied with moderate, spritzy carbonation on the palate.. not beery, but overall refreshing and very drinkable.

PorterPounder (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy medium orange with a nice soft white head that leaves bit of lacing. Berry-like aroma is very faint and somewhat artificial. Flavor has some blackberry accents, a touch of lemon sourness, some yeasty notes, some biscuity maltiness. Mouthfeel is slightly pasty.

I am a fan of Summer Shandy, but not Berry Weiss. This is basically a mix of this two beers from Leinenkugel. As a result, this is tough one for me to rate. I want to really like it, but I just find it too sweet. It would be an OK summer beer, but I think I will stick with Summer Shandy when I am in the mood for this style of beer.

nearbeer (3813) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2012
On tap. Light haze on the golden body with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is faux berry and lemon, with some whiffs of factory-cracked grain. Taste is the same with maybe a hint of dry grass and honey. Light body has medium carbonation and is sweet. This one is pretty much what an informed beer consumer should expect when purchasing an industrial brew, and the shandy part seems to be totally a matter of having a liking for the style or not. Personally Ive never had a shandy I liked very well, but if I was on the beach in Jamaica with the choice between this and a BMC, Id probably choose this one until it got so sweet that I vomited. Then Id switch to a BMC until I vomited.

The carbonation and color is unappealing. I have always liked the berry weiss and thought this would be similar. The color is a pinkish brown, super bubbly to the point that it covers up the already subtle taste. the lightness would be nice and refreshing on the right day.

Bottle. Tart lemon and artificial berry aroma. Hazy rose with a moderate pink tinged white head. Tart lemon, sweet artificial berry, and light malty flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Surprisingly not as bad as I was expecting, and I could see this going down very easily on a hot summer day on the lawnmower.
