2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a 1 finger, bright white head. Aroma is lemon grainy wheat coriander and dishwater. Flavor is lemonade right away, bready yeast, sweetish starchy raw grain and some light, sweet bread spice. Palate is light chalky and has a light, but blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. The aroma is a little off putting, but this stuff actually doesn’t taste all that bad.

Big white head. Lots of lacing. No nose at all. Almost no taste. Slight sweet, slight citrus. Drinkable.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has sweet lemon. Flavor is like a skunky busch with a touch of lemon. Light mouthfeel and a mild lemony abrupt finito.

Bottle. Poured a hazy yellowish color. No head on this one. Aroma was all lemon and some malts. Flavor was acacidic lemon notes and infused fruits. Not a whole lot to this beer.

Bought 12 oz bottle and drank from pint glass. Lemon flavor was overpowering, and reminded me of a Belgian lemonade without any of the kick. Jury is still out.., probably better when drunk...

Drank from a 12 oz. bottle. Not a very impressive color, kind of murky. The lemon flavor tastes more like that fake lemon juice you can by in plastic bottles.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of lemon, mustiness, grass, and faint wheat. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dull yellow with a one finger fizzy white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with lemon grass/lemon candy. It’s more sweet lemon (a flavor I’m not real fond of) instead of sour/tart lemon. The finish has light wheat and cereal notes. It’s light bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Overall...not a fan of the sweet lemon flavors. Obviously they are looking to steal some of the Leinenkugel Summer Shandy crowd, but if I had to choose, it’s an easy choice to go with Leinenkugel.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Puors thick creamy white head, which dissapears quite quickly. Aroma of lemon zest, artificial lemon, some bubble gum, some wheat and yeast. Taste is lemony, a bit sour, lightly bitter. Too artificial.
