This beer went down like orange juice. I’m not a huge fan of these types of beers, but this was my favorite shandy variation from Leinenkugel.

Yuck. Oh? I need more of a review than that? Well, even my Choc Beer glass couldn’t help this one. It’s a hazy pale straw concoction with a white film on top. It smells like orange soda (which I’ve never liked) and tastes much the same but also has some breadiness. Too sweet. Yuck.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Smelled like artificially flavored orange hard candy (smelled pretty damn good, but idk if i want that smell for a beer). Poured a cloudy golden orange with a white head and some lacing. Taste of orange peel, sweet candy, coriander, and spice. Medium body, medium carbonation. It’s slightly above average

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange/yellow with fizzy, disappearing white head. Aroma is orange soda and a bit of wheat. Tastes sweet with some wheat flavors coming out in the finish. Body is light with probably too much carbonation. Still, this is refreshing, easily drinkable, and great for a summer day. I prefer this to Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy (lemon). Probably my favorite macro-brewed lawnmower beer, it is still good in December.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 8z bottle. Nice concept, just tastes "unfinished" and a bit experimental. Oranges, grapefruits with some wheat in the taste, but the finish is powdery. A bit over carbonated.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a cloudy light orange with a modest head and light lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts and orange. Taste was slightly malty and tangy with an orange/tangerine backend and a light hop finish. An orangey and tangy after taste was present. Palate was decent. Overall, an honorable shandy.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- "Where’s the Beer?" That’s all I need to say....but,... cloudy dirty light amber, generous white head a couple of spots of lace. Aroma of citrus ade. Taste is tart orangeade that exhibits no change through a barely edgy finish. Doesn’t work in this realm.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from the store. Wish I could have shared this whale with friends but I just couldn’t wait. Pours a murky yellow to orange color with minimal head. Nose is citrus zest. Taste is slightly tart with strong citrus component. This tastes just like the sunset wheat with an orange slice or ten in it. Decent but the fruity zesty citrus seems like it actually belongs in the beer

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp, and drinkable beer. Highly carbonated, with a quickly dissipating head. Heavy aroma of citrus and soda. Main flavor is of flat, orange soda, followed up with a hearty wheat that is not overshadowed by the orange. Rather good on a hot summer day.
