2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy blonde with big fluffy white head. The aroma is very limey, gingery. Sweet, a little bit sticky and a lot like lemonade. This isn’t much of a fruit beer so much as a hard lemonade.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a cloudy bright yellow color with almost no head, just a few white bubbles.
S: Mostly just smells like lemonade. It actually has a nice tartness to it, as if there might be some real lemons in it. Slightly sweet/sugary, though. Not much in the way of the base wheat beer.
T: Not quite as good as it smells. There is a nice lemonade flavor, but itís a bit watery. Somewhat grassy with a bit of straw flavor. Like the aroma, there isnít much in the way of actual "beer".
M: Light bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Actually didnít mind this one too much. The aroma was much better than the flavor, though.

Draft. Poured hazy yellow color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good lemon and banana aroma. Light to medium body. Medium sweet lemonade flavor with medium sweet finish of short duration. This beer did not meet my expectations.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 This is one of my guilty pleasures. It basically smells and tastes like lemonade. Not alcoholic "Mikeís hard lemonade" which is basically just a hangover in a bottle. This is just lemonade. Rated 8/25/08 Original rating 3.9
