2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
It was a steamy hot day and I had been looking forward to this refreshing beer. Pale lemon color with a 1.5" head making a quick appearance. Smell immediately transported me to a fresh cut lawn with a lemonade in hand. So did the taste. I almost winced. Checked the bottle to be sure it was a beer and not a Smirnoff. Sickeningly sweet, my stomach hurt before I finished it. Might be tempted to substitute this for Minute Maid next time, but not for a summer wheat beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2009 Pours a cloudy yellow color with small head. Tastes basically like lemonade with some grains. A decent shandy though it is not my favorite style.

I must admit that my rating is unfair. I was not aware of the concept of a "shandy" when I drank this beer. I simply thought, "This tastes like beer watered down with lemonade." I clearly will need to try it again for a more fair rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of lemon and bread dough. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of lemon, bread and light cookie with a crisp drt lemony finish.
A great summer session beer on a hot day!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap somewhere in Illinois. Pours a clear gold color with a foamy white head. The aroma is full of lemons and wheat. The taste was similar; a semi-sour lemon and tons of sweet malts and wheat. Decent. A thirst quencher.

Actually somewhat enjoyable, even though it doesn’t taste like beer....which I guess is the point. A refreshing lemonade is how I would market it. Perfect on that ultra hot day. But beer? No.

If you are a fan of seasonal brews, this is a must try! Great lemon taste on the palate. Very refreshing... I would purchase again!

Had this out of the bottle at a barbeque...perfect for such a setting. I had heard that germans like to mix lemonade with beer and coke with beer but never had the opportunity to try it - I imagine this is similar. This can be a bit light and sweet for most beer drinkers but a good choice if you don’t know what you’re in the mood for: beer or a mixed drink

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I just had one and drank it right out of the bottle so I could not observe it in a glass. Nice lemon aroma. Big flavor of lemons but the wheat from the Weiss beer was also noted. Good mix of flavors. Very enjoyable on a hot day. I’ll try it again with a glass.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy yellow pour. Overwhelming lemon aroma and flavor. Lemonade with some wheat in it. Interesting take, but not a beer. More of a malt beverage.
