Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2014
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.

Boutip (4775) - 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.

Beerathon (1217) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Not gonna lie, I find this refreshing and enjoy the flavor. Crisp wheat ale mixed with tangy lemonade. Nothing awesome, but definitely easy drinking. During the summer, why not?

Whole lemon and shitty hay nose. Cloudy amber, medium head. Lemon flavor, somewhat beery. Not half bad, quite refreshing.

OK, the lemon flavor is so overpowering it seems artificial. But címon Ratebeerians, this isnít a 10th percentile beer. Sure, its target market is not beer connisseurs, but this is decent for what it is - a light sweet summer drink. I donít love it but donít hate it either.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 Not bad, but not as good as Leinies Summer Shandy. Slight lemon flavor and very smooth. A good summer beer.

OzarkElmo (295) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Enjoyable, easy drinking summer offering from A-B. I am not fan of strong lemon taste, and this brew is very subtle with the lemon. Worth a try!

Block (1432) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Light and refreshing. Less flavor and less put together than Leinenkugelís Summer Shandy but still a decent summer offering thatís a little different than some of the others.

weihenweizen (1766) - 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.

Lemke10 (805) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2012
It pours a semi-clear pale yellow hue with a quickly dissipating head. The scent is mild with creamy wheat and lemon aroma. The texture is slightly creamy with cheap grains and lemon hitting the taste buds rather weakly. This is essentially Budís version to compete with Millerís distributed Leinenkugelís Summer Shandy. Itís a decent summer beerÖmaybe? I guess I would have to try both of them at the same time to give an honest opinion of which one is better but I have yet to have a shandy that tops Potosi Steamboat Shandy on draft. Overall this is average, maybe a little better but nothing that amazes me that much.
