2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I suspected that a major brewer was behind this one based on the packaging but I picked up a six-pack anyway. This one has a little too much lemon in it. I did enjoy it on a nice hot afternoon though. It is a good summer beer to break up the monotony.
From the start, the aroma is dominated by lemon. There is something else in there but I can’t put a finger on it.
Pale yellow and hazy. It looks like an unfiltered wheat, though I’m pretty sure that it is filtered. A small white head forms and disappears just as quickly. Nothing to be impressed by here, move along.
The taste is crisp and refreshing. Strong and slightly sour lemonade. Pretty much what you expect from a beer advertised as a "Weiss Beer with Lemonade". This is a pretty nice light taste for a hot afternoon.
The palate is very lively. A nice hit of carbonation on the tongue and lips through the whole beer. Despite the opacity, this is a very light thin beer. The finish is quick and a little tart.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can poured to a goblet, displaying a cloudy, straw color with an initially presentable layer of white head foam that reduced quickly to a light film & thin ring, with lacing that raised up from the ring in a wavy fashion. Strong, reconstituted lemon juice scent dominated the nose, with maybe just a touch of wheat. Light bodied, with not much honey sweetness, a combo of modest bitterness & dryness, conveyed by lively, seltzery carbonation, made this a little less refreshing than I would have expected. Not summer,(although I wish) but often add lemonade to my iced tea, so this became an okay hydrator & snack rinse while watching the NFL playoffs.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle sample at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Ariel. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of sparkling lemon-lime drink and a bit of wheat. Sourish-sweetish flavor, spicy, with lemonade and a bit of bitterish lemon peels. Quite light-bodied. Not very good, but quite easy-drinking.

"I appreciate what they’re going for here, but this is a slight miss. While still refreshing, it has a certain artificial quality to the lemon in the aroma and flavor. I’d prefer Sam Adams to this..."

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- a great lemony aroma, I rated this high because this is a shandy and it smells like one!
Appearance- a healthy yellow color that belies the lemon. It looks like summer.
Taste- if you are a shandy admirer then this won’t disappoint. excellent lemon flavor, with a hint of wheat and beer accents.
Palate- just the right amount of carbonation, a light bodied beer.
Overall- this is an excellent summer brew for those who enjoy shandy. If you are not into a crisp lemonade tinged beers then avoid this beer. If not enjoy this while it is in stock.

Poured a cloudy, very pale yellow. Aroma of lemon. This is a light, lemon flavored beer, but it was somewhat refreshing on a hot day.

I don't consider this a beer. It is more a lemonade with alcohol. In the mid-afternoon it is a pleasant drink with a low alcohol content (4.2%).

My absolute favorite summer beer. Light, refreshing and a nice smell of lemon. Light bodied refreshing and satisfying. After an hour or so of yardwork it's the best thing to hit your mouth. Beautiful pale yellow see-through color. Light foamy head.
