1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes like Tang mixed in beer. Leinenkugel is such a good brewery. I don’t understand why they would put their name on such crap. Yuck!

This beer is all that it says it is: Orange Shandy. What else is there for this brew? Enjoy!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, as part of the autumn sampler pack. Pours a very hazy, disturbingly anemic whitish orange with a very small white head. Straight orange soda aroma with a bit of malt at the tail end. Sweet orange flavor with some sour lemon peel and bitter orange pith, a bit reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. A few sour grains in the finish. Not terrible, quite refreshing actually, and without any overpowering adjuncty corn that seems so prevalent in Leinenkugel offerings. Odd to find this in their autumn sampler, though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of tart orange with a sweet finish, reminiscent of Dreamsicles. The taste is dry orange and pale malts. Medium bodied and a bit muddled. It’s not horrible.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Geri came by with a draft sample of this at GTMW 2013 while we were in line for Three Floyds. Thanks, Geri! A definite change of pace at this fest. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Like the other fruity Leiny’s stuff, this one tasted like Fruity Pebbles to me. Orange zest, too. Light-bodied, with a sweet, sugary, fruity mouthfeel. Better than Lemon.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Cloudy pale orange brew -looks liek a light beer with half an orange creamsicle dissolved in it. Interesting looking, though. Weak orange soda aroma. Taste is weak orange flavor, neutral malt Zima taste. LIght and refreshing but with a creamy sweetness and nice palate. Again - creamsicle dissolved in light beer. A pleasant beverage.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can (traded with Patrickctenchi for a Pliny the Elder). Orange soda and light barley malt aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow with large head. Slightly sweet orange juice, orange peel, and barley malt flavor. Not bad. Good thirst quencher.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from a bottle. Hazy orange yellow color. Minimal off-white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Light to medium body. Smoother, softer, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Orange citrus flavor. Tangy sweet. Lightly zesty. Not as bad as expected, really. Not nearly as bad as Lemon Shandy..

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a half finget white head. Aroma of...a dreamsicle. The smell is spot on. Orange and cream. WTF? Taste is more oj with lemon, pale malt, grains and a little skunk. Light bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Carbonation on the fizzy side with a decently long finish. Meh, not really my style but still enjoyable.
