Clear hazy yellow. Small white ring head. Funky dirty aroma of earthy malt amd lemon. Lots of.lemon and.sugar flavor with cereal malt fighting through the background.

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance was a fairly yellow transparency that looked like someone squeezed a lemon in it. Carbonated bubbles rose rapidly and filled a one finger white foamy head that rapidly dissipated. The smell, well, it was definitely lemon, I’ll tell ya that. However, was it authentic? I really don’t know. The taste was bitter lemon in it, but I didn’t get any spices in it. The aftertaste was bitter lemon and a super watery finish. On the palate, it sat fairly light and showed a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was decent for a fruit beer and not bad to me. Overall, I say this wasn’t a bad fruit beer, but not one I’d want again.

From a can into a chalice. Pours a cloudy gold colour, which I approve of in a wheat beer. No head, though. Aroma is weak (due to lack of head,) but has a slight sweet and zesty note. Flavour is actually not bad at all. Has that white beer richness and spice with a hint of lemon to it. Actually rather good. I wouldn’t compare it to Hoegaarden in terms of wheat beer, but it is rather flavourful and suitable for a hot day.

I preferred this one to the Summer Shandy next to it. It has more wheat beer flavor and less stale lemonade. Still, the lemon flavoring is pretty sub-standard, and therefore it’s not a beer I’d ever ask for.

Not much aroma. Light lemon flavor. Some bread. Very mild. Fairly refreshing. On tap at Deckers in Joplin.

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

Aroma is lemonade and hints of grains, spices and citrus. The flavor is mildly sweet lemonade along with grains and spices. Better than expected.

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

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.

How could I have missed this in the past? Is it new? From a bottle, looks better than expected. Some sediment on bottom of bottle. Smell is somewhat musty. Looks like cloudy lemonade. Some artificial flavor int he background. Decent fine sharp fizz. Does not show much alky. Fer sure it is some sort of lemony thing happening. Somewhat dull finish. OK, so I smell a little more lemon in there now. Not bad but not nearly as good as that curious traveler I just had a few minutes ago.
