Pours like I drank it from the can. Berry and lemon tartness. Plenty of sugar, some light grainy wheat notes. Finishes like leines. Yeah buddy! demitriustown (1191) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2012
12 oz bottle: Aroma has a wonderful lemonade, blackberry, and a light amount of wheat beer. Appearance is a very cloudy reddish orange with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is lemonade, blackberries, and backing it up is the wheat notes. Palate is medium to high carbonation, light on the tongue, with a lingering berry aftertaste. Overall, I think it just really tasty. Cheers! Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - DEC 15, 2012
12 oz. bottle- Pours very hazy grapefruit pinkish orange with a head that reduces almost immediately to a collar. Aroma is lemony, some berries, almost like lemon pledge instead of real lemons. Taste is the same, there is a medicinal flavor that is a little offputting. Body is medium, carbonation is slightly high. Overall this was decent, but not as good as I was hoping for. milewide (2218) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Pink amber color. Medium body and head. Blackberries and lemon in both the aroma and taste. Finishes with a modest beer taste and bitterness. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2012
This poured a cloudy darker yellow color with a white head. Aaroma was lemon and raspberries, much like bluedini koolaid. Flavor was the same, bluedini koolaid with some beer in the end.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky salmon-ochre color with a very large pink-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tart and tangy lemon, berry, citric acid and artificial sugar. The flavor was tart and tangy artificial sugar, strong lemon, vague berry and turned dry and astringent on the finish. Light body. Interesting. Lemke10 (980) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2012
In early fall 2012; Leinenkugel’s introduced its newest beer, Lemon Berry Shandy. It is rumored that this was crudely made over the years at Summerfest by combining their Summer Shandy and Berry Weiss. It became fairly popular and even was made in the bars before finally being a beer of its own. Let’s see how it fairs when it comes down to rating.
It pours a murky pink color like grapefruit juice with a light pink head. There is a mild scent of lemons and blackberries in the mix as well as wheat. Overall there is a sweet aroma indicating a sweet flavor. This is fairly inviting.
The taste of Berry Weiss is very evident here with lots of blackberry juice flavor. There is an after taste of lemon that is a little off-putting. The taste is obviously fruity and kind of awkward throughout. It finishes kind of tangy and sour leaving an unpleasant taste in your mouth.
Two decently made beers combined sounds like a good idea, but the execution of the plan falls short. This is a great summer beer when you are thirsty after mowing the yard. But as a rate-able fruit beer, there are a lot better beers on the market. Better than average overall, but not by much.

Purchased as part of the 2013 Leinenkugel Winter Variety 12 pack - Alright, this purplish hued brew smells berryesque, with the flavor adding a citrus bite to the berry/malty base taste. It’s okay. ozzy70 (1125) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours cloudy with quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of lemons and fruit. Taste, lemons and berries. Very refreshing. EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2012
From a raffle won six pack. Ok, kook aid and beer. Kind of tasty. My Wolfe would probably like it. Can appreciate it is pretty well done.
