Clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma is full of lemons with a hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of sweet lemon notes with a hint of tartness and some malty, sugary biscuit notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Bleh.

Bottle. Ugh. How did the definition of shandy get linked with lemonade? In my European experiences, they were made with lemon soda (ie, 7Up, which in some places is called ’lemonade’, but ain’t). This drinks like I guess they intended ... mostly bad, industrial lemonade, with a splash of bad, industrial beer. (#4590, 5/7/2012)

Sampled at Heritage Fest. Because why not? Hazy white gold. A lemon nose, as expected. Wheat notes are almost zero. Lemon woth a little malt. Ok, I did it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5969) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a huge foamy white head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was tart citrus and chalk. The flavor was tart, dry and chalky with faint lemon. Medium finish. Light body. Uninspired.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is something akin to lemon Pledge with a bit of malted wheat and maybe a bit of coriander. Flavor wise, it walks the line between a lemon lime soda like Sprite and a really spiced Wit beer. Though it leans a bit more towards the soda qualities. Mouthfeel is fizzy and light, pretty refreshing really, with fizzy spritzy carbonation. Not terrible if you’re looking for something that tastes like soda but will still get you drunk. High school girls will love this one.

Boutip (5465) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of lemon syrup with quite a bit of residual sugars is closer to juice than beer. Taste is a mix between some wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and some lemon syrup notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Easy drinking wheat beer with a tad too much sugar thought.

Very pale yellow, white ring. Scent is wheat, lemon Taste is the same with a lemonade aspect.. It bubbles furiously in a flute, yet feels dull. If lemonade is what you crave, go for a Mike’s instead....or Countrytime. I just don’t get it.

Sampled on 4/11/2012. This fruit beer/shandy pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma is slightly grassy and sweet with some lemon flavor. A light bodied fruit beer/shandy. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Not sure just what I was expecting with this one. I had full expectations of it being like those horrid German raddlers that I have sampled before. Its more like a slightly alcoholic mild lemonade, so its better than the ones I have had in the past. That said its still very unbeer like, the lemon flavor is a little artificial tasting and its malts and hops are really toned down. It is un-offensive but there is really nothing here strong enough tasting to offend. Good carbonation. Would make a decent summer drink, but I don’t think I can call it a beer. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

jgb9348 (5320) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Golden coloured body with a thinnish slightly off-white head. Aroma of pure lemons, unfinished sugars and a bit of yeast. Light-bodied; Airy, very acidic flavour with lemons obviously on the forefront, with some malt, wheat, coriander seed and funk on the end. Aftertaste is light and very very sweet - only some citric flavours cut the sweetness. Overall, not such a great beer - as expected, but if you wanted a sweet, slightly sour beer for the summertime, available at your local corner store around every city in this fine country and you have yourself an option. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle given to me after a hockey game in Arlington, Virginia on 18-July-2012.

Bottle. Hazy medium gold with a pillowy bright white head. The nose smells like cheap lemon candy, artificial. There is also some hint of soap. The taste is fairly sweet. It’s like mixing the regular meh shock top wit with a cheap lemonade. Wow, pretty much exactly what you would expect. Not too bad and the sweetness is tempered after a few drinks. A bland cardboard finish.
