Leine brews are generally solid, but this is rather disappointing. Along with Berry Weiss, this is too fruity and not nearly enough beer-y: Completely misses the art of subtetly when dealing with sweet fruity flavors like lemons. The saving grace is how refreshing it is...good for a hot day, I guess.

hopscotch (9519) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored brew with a small, frothy, white head. The aroma is all about cereal grains and lemon oil. Light-bodied, but creamy with lively carbonation. Well-balanced, but thin and fairly bland. Fortunately, not nearly as sweet as Stiegl Gaudi-Radler Zitrone. Short, crisp, refreshing finish.

From a bottle looked like lemonade, with a little head. Smell and flavor of lemons with a quick finish. Very drinkable.

Too much lemon and too little body. Bitter? No. Sweet? No. Beer? Not Really. Mow your lawn and pound one.

morrdt (696) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2008
12 oz bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a light gold with a bit of cloudiness. Aroma is all lemonade and a touch of grains. Taste is lemonade and ale, with a touch of hops finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

Cybercat (3498) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2008
This beer is a cloudy amber rather like a good wheat beer. Aroma is strongly lemony and wheaty, more the former. Flavor is typical of a wheat beer but with a much stronger citrus component, suggesting a blend of beer and lemonade, i.e., shandy. A smooth, refreshing drink for a warm sunny day - or to bring sunshine into a dreary day.

unclemike (2305) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 4, 2008
Cloudy light-yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma is of lemonheads candy. Strong lemon flavor with a bit of lime. Thin body and not much carbonation. I like lemonade so itís not a total loss but it gets almost sickening when warmed. I really like their sunset wheat but this is pretty marginal.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle: Pours a very hazy thick opaque yellow color, thin head and no lacing. The nose is lemony like a 7up with some light honey and hop. Soda like flavor with a thick body and thin carbonation. The finish is acidic. Either needs more beer or more lemonade, itís straddling the fence of boring on both accounts. Hmm.

12 ounce bottle. I picked up a six pack of this to drink on a Friday night. I was not in the mood for a typical beer, so I thought I would give this a shot. I almost feel bad rating this one as a beer... reminded me of a strange carbonated lemonade-soda. I didnít even bother pouring this one into a glass. Tasted like carbonated lemonade with a slight taste of beer. It was refreshing and definitely different. It is sessionable if you do not like "real" beer...
