2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: 3 fingers white head, straw yellow, cloudy. Aroma: strawberry, lemon, light lime and floral. Palate: light body, average carbonation, thin texture, light dry finish. Taste: sweet strawberry to light citrus touch, and into a malty sweet that cloys and finishes slightly dry. Overall, refreshing, but really not too drinkable, and palate is cloying sweet despite the thinness.

Transfer from BA review on 7-23-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a super hazy orange-amber color with a one finger creamy-pure white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a decent level of lace in on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The smell is super sweet with a huge sweet lemonade aroma mixed with a very fruit punch Jell-O and pixie stix candy sugar smell. Other fruits join the aroma as well creating a very delicious candy and sweet fruit smell overall.
Taste – The taste starts with a mix of a bready flavor with a strong sweet lemonade taste upfront. As the taste advances some yeast and a bit of spice come to the tongue with the brew sweetening all the while as the more fruit punch like flavors start coming to the tongue. In the end the sweet Jell-o like fruity flavors get rather strong and when combine with the lemonade and bready tastes leaves a quite sweet and lemony fruit punch like flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is on the medium side with very tiny carbonation bubbles tickling the tongue. The body and carbonation are perfect for the lighter drinking style and sweeter flavors of the brew making for a super easy summer drinker.
Overall – A very nice summer style refreshing brew when you are looking for something that is quite sweet. It is more on the fruit-hard lemonade side but has just a hint of beer like flavor and texture. While not what I am looking for when I want a beer to sit down with for a “beer” it is quite awesome for warm weather when I feel like something more sweet.

This stuff smells of strawberry soda and sort of looks like and has the texture of a witbier. It is not altogether bad to be honest. The label implies it has real lemon peel but strawberry flavor added but the I find the strawberry flavor to be reasonably fresh and natural all things considered. As far as this kind of thing goes, this is pretty good but, unfortunately, that does very little to change the fact that what this kind of thing is is pretty stupid.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a hazy yellow color with a thin head. Aroma has lots of lemon and berries. Taste is very sweet with more lemon, berries, and a touch of spices. A little bit too sweet, but it finishes nicely. Overall not bad, good for a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle - Pours pinkish with a minimal head. The aroma is chiefly of strawberries along with some lemon. The flavor is sweet and otherwise the same. The strawberry comes through nicely but to me it gets too sweet. It’s light bodied and refreshing but overall okay at best.

Very Good fruity smell but a bit artificial flavor taste...too watery, wish it was stronger and a bit more real

pours hazy light yellow with a very nice creamy white head offering a good retention and some nice lacing. fresh but dusty strawberries, strawberry coulis, lemony zing, bitter herbs, lightly sweet pale malted base, honey sweetness, hint of cardboard, peppery and lightly woodsy notes. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, very lightly astringent, sweetish fruity - kind of cloying - and slightly bland grassy-herbal finish. interesting..

Extremely sweet, but if you pick up something that is marked as shandy, I think that you expect that. It’s fruity and refreshing, and a nice take on the "style", so in that respect, I think it was good? I enjoyed it, and would definitely drink it again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with strawberries and lemon on the nose. Overpoweringly sweet, berries and lemon everywhere. No noticeable hoppiness. Way too sweet for me.
