2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy light amber with a very small white foamy head that diminished in a matter of seconds and had poor runny lacing.
The Aroma was light grain malt, a very mild grassy hop and a soapy yeast with a note of citrus (lemon).
The taste was kind of light and a little malty with a decent yeast presence throughout with the finish having a mild citrus taste towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a yeasty lemon taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and a tad watery in texture with a somewhat lively carbonation.
Overall this was a brew with a refreshing citrus wheat flavor and an easy drinkability. It would make a good summertime brew for those who prefer a lighter beer…

Tap@Jolly Scholar, Cleveland, USA. Light fresh and sweet aroma of citrus. Light yellow color with small white head and hazy liquid. Medium taste with soapy sweeter citrus. Narrow taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with citrus. Balanced. Light body with medium/high carbonation. Overall, very simple and artificial and soapy, though refreshing.

Lemon aroma with a weak body that is extremely sweet and the finish tastes like Gatorade.

Pours a hazy yellow with thick white head. Aroma is lemon and some grass.
Passable as hot weather refresher but there are better options.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with thick white head. Aroma is lemon and some grass. Taste is kind of a fake artificial lemon. Just not my thing.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally rated on 6/8/08. The fourth beer out of the sampler case i bought. It poured a nice golden, slightly hazy body, a very small head, and it left no lacing on my glass. the aroma was very lemony, pleasant at first. As i drank it reminded me of a lemon scented bathroom cleaner,too much lemon odor to be natural. overall it was refreshing and a decent brew but i dont belive i will buy this again.

One of those beers you want to not like but you can’t really because it tastes like pure summer and when you really think about it that’s really what we all want. The feeling of summer without all the bad parts of summer... Like spending all day at a beach slowly crisping into a blistery painful sunburn. Sweating profusely as you stumble your way back to the bar for a 12th beer and maybe just a little shade to sooth your screaming cancer-ridden skin. This is like that but without all the bad stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thick off white head. Very light brew as expected from a shandy. Not much lemon flavor and not much malt flavor either. That said it is a light refreshing beverage that suits a hot summer day.

Poured a murky golden hue with a bit of head that quickly dissipated. Smelled of artificial lemon. Taste was artificial as well but surprisingly not bad and refreshing. Overall this is decent and I always have to get a six pack every summer for nostalgia's sake.

I think all of Leinenkugels’ fruit beers are the same: fruity and delicious, but leave you wishing they had something more distinguishing than which fruit is in this particular beer you’re drinking at that moment.
