Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light dishwater gold with a creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is lemon drop candy plus some wheat. Pretty weak body, flavor is very artificial. Rather bleh!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin off-white fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of candied lemon and floral notes. The taste is wheat, spice, lemon candy. Thin bodied. Below even what I was expecting, but not terrible.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home. Cloudy, banana yellow appearance with a disappearing white head. Bready, lemonade, a bit spicy, wheat malty aroma. Somewhat refreshing, Radler-like, lemonade, sweet wheat, a little spicy flavor. I guess if it was a really hot day I could see myself chugging a couple of these but not otherwise. Not that worthwhile overall.

Sampled from bottle at Metro Liquor in Kelowna, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose and flavour brings out lemon zest, wheat, and citrus. Refreshing, lightly sweet and drinkable. Not great, but pleasant enough.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
355ml twist off. Hazed light gold pour. Heavy artificial lemon scent and some wheat vagueness. Flavor is surprisingly not too sweet but has a chlorine like water character odd spiciness, and really not a pleasant lemon flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Commons. Thank you Dedicatedtofun. Low haze straw. Weaker white foam. Nose is pretty nice lemonade. Taste is decently refreshing, sort of like normal Shock Top blended with lemonade. Inoffensive. Some soapiness and mealy, chalky apple.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Lemon and coriander aroma - smells like Pledge. Pale yellow color with large head. Lightly sweet lemon and coriander flavor - no malt flavor at all. Bad - any radler you can find from Germany or Austria (or even a French Panache) is going to be better than this.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Jimmy. Mildly hazy paler yellow color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Minimal white head, fades to nothing. I’m definitely tasting the "Lemonade Flavor Added." Just tastes like a weak wheat with some lemonade "flavor" -- whatever that means. Sharper carbonation. More dry finish, but slightly syrupy aftertaste.. Just a sweet taste, nothing else. The label claims this is a "Belgian-Style Wheat Beer", but this is nothing like that. As the beer warms up slightly, some slight skunky notes start to show up (nose-smell isn’t great either). I haven’t had too many shandies, but surely there are better examples of the style. A reasonably drinkable sweet beer, though. I can understand why people who don’t know better would be fans of this stuff (sorry Jimmy)
