Pours hazy yellow into the glass with a fizzy dissipating head that leaves no lace. The nose is of lemon Pledge. Flavors are of lemon candies, with a seltzer water mouthfeel. Thin and unsubstantiated, this is a bit of a letdown, not too mention cloying and over-carbonated.

weihenweizen (1835) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Nice thin small bubble lacing, medium carbonation, thin body, and light lemon aroma. Taste is grainy wheat and lemon. OK for what it is.

I didn’t hate this. Pours a muddy yellow. Aromas are lemonade. Similar flavors. Nice and sweet. Very easy to drink. Pretty one note. But its a good note. I could drink a thousand of these on a hot day. Goes down like sweet lemon water

Westmeister (1806) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
12oz drank straight from the bottle. Not enough lemon or beer flavor. Overall, quite poorly made. Muddled grain and lemony taste. Not horrible, but doesn’t taste anything like a beer. Eh.

"Natural lemonade flavor"? Not sure what that is but it does successfully avoid tasting artificial. Light lemony aroma and taste over a weak but inoffensive wheat.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is lemon and skunk--seriously, this beer is brand new on the shelves and it smells skunky, WTF? Pours hazy pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head that leaves a collar of foam. Taste is lightly sweet and a bit tart. Along with the lemonade, I can taste a bit of coriander, skunk. It tastes quite a bit like flavored seltzer water. Carbonation is high and the body is thin. This beer is pretty disgraceful.

Wow, I am surprisingly pleased with the taste of this Summer Shandy. The lemon flavor is very pleasant.

Draft during RBSG 2014 at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of lemons, soda. Tastes of lemons, wheat, lemonade. Light body with a dry finish. Fine.

Cloudy golden color. Lemonade dominates aroma and taste. Medium body. Not my thing, but in fairness, lemonade taste seems natural.

THOUGHTS: Like a wit beer and a shandy had a baby. Sort of like lemon and lemon peel were used to brew a wit instead of orange peel. It had a lot more flavor than I remember Leinenkugel Summer Shandy having. Just a great summer refresher. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very cloudy, medium to dark, muddy yellow with an average, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light to moderate wheat; moderate yeast; lemon and lemonade. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and light to moderately acidic; while the finish was slight to lightly sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter. There was lemon, lemonade, wheat, yeast and a little orange. The nearly medium body was fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly astringent finish.
