I appreciate what Leinenkugel’s is trying to do here, but it’s not my kind of beer. Very fruity, and lot’s of carbonation. Not enough alcohol.

Went into this with low expectations. Fizzy orange/yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is orange soda mixed with beer. Flavor is pretty much the same. About as I expected. Not offensive but this could have been way better. As is though, hey I’d take one on a hot summer day after cutting the grass.

Free beer. Reviewed from notes. Jackie, thank you, I think, if anything, thank you for the tick. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to yellow color with a fizzy bubbly white head that quickly died down into the beer. There was no lacing. The smell had a super sweet lemon to come mixture with a light sharp dry grassy edge to it. The taste was mainly sweet through the lemon, orange, and grassiness. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. It carried a weird smooth yet sharp texture over my tongue. Overall, well, it had an okay smell and taste but just didn’t do much for my palate that I couldn’t quite right place. It probably be better in the Summer.

Transfer from BA review on 10-8-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy orange-straw like color with a two finger foamy head. The head fades fast initially but soon settles to a one half finger of somewhat dense white foam. The head then fades rather slowly, leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is rather strong of a sweet orange smell with some more bitter orange peel smells mixed with some lighter lemon aromas as well. Along with these smells is a little bit of a wheat smell as well as a tiny amount of grass. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth sweeter orange and wheaty taste. As the taste advances some lemon and more bitter orange peel flavors come to the tongue. With a little bit of herb coming to the tongue at the end of the taste, as well as more bitter citrus and sweet citrus as well, a rather orange citrus sweet and wheaty flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both the thinner body and the higher carbonation are very appropriate for the orange citrus and lighter abv of the brew, making it a rather easy drinking brew. Overall – A sweeter and rather refreshing summer brew. It kind of tastes like a blend of lemonade, orange juice and beer. While not quite appropriate for winter style drinking (at least not up north) it is a decent sweet summer style refreshing brew.

This looks like fresh squeezed orange juice but better. Its an awesome yellow and orange concoction, completely cloudy, pouring with a big foamy white head. It smells like a blue moon the bartender dropped all 4 slices of a freakishly large GMO orange into. It, at first, tastes just like powerful orange juice, when that malty beer finish comes in and ruins it. I wish Coors, I mean Leinenkugel, no wait..., nevermind, would have just bottled orange juice and then sold it as Leinenkugel Orange juice without the foul barley malt finish rudely interrupting your citrus experience. For some inexplicable reason I enjoy this abomination. Probably because orange juice is better than beer. Oh, come on!... like you don’t thank it for saving your life before you go to bed, over and over again.

I’m a beer geek/snob, but I like the radler/shandy style, especially in warmer weather. Love the orange twist to the typical lemonade flavor. Not too sweet and not to soda like. Well done.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color thin off-white head. Aroma was all citrus for me, primarily oranges. Taste is high sweet citrus. Light body, sweet finish. Too sugary for me but ok overall for one beer on a hot day.

"Orange gatorade/tang is definitely the main aroma and flavor component here. I was not a huge fan of their previous lemon centric efforts, but this actually sounded better. Silly me. Like Lou said, not much to redeem this except thirst quenching...but I can get a 32 oz Gatorade for less than 12 oz of this :)"

Orange Shandy is a pleasant summertime drink. I don't consider it a real beer but it has a nice flavor. It's more orange juice with alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange yellow with a fizzy white head. Smells like Tang and wheat. Taste like Tang and wheat. Not the best beer they make.
