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.

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)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft pour at the end of the tour at Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big white head. Notes of lemon candy, sweetened cereal (Fruity Pebbles or Froot Loops or some such nonsense), minerals, and wheat. Light-medium bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. I’d probably rather have this than the Raspberry, but it’s close.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Kroger. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a fleeting small white head. The aroma and flavor have light pale malts, lemon juice, some sweetness, a hint of spice, this doesn’t have very many redeeming qualities in my opinion. I will not revisit.
