I appreciate what Leinenkugel’s is trying to do here, but it’s not my kind of beer. Very fruity, and lot’s of carbonation. Not enough alcohol.
DATE: August 17, 2017... OCCASION: Stage One of prepping for the roommates’ Saturday get-together completed... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... pours a hazy, opaque, tangerine yellow body whose effervescence is impossible to discern... a mountain of alpine white foam thickens, then crags above... orange peel, lemon zest, vanilla cream, and almond milk set off the initial aroma... aided by its prodigious foam, the first sip is creamy, tangy, thirst-quenching and lively... the back-end is biscuity and buttery, belying a slight maltiness... as the glass drains, uneven smears of froth pool in odd patterns... the flavor is decidedly orange creamsicle, with soft vanilla, nutty almond, lemon zest, and cracker malts... refreshing, with the only imperfections being its slightly cloying finish and that the style would benefit from more fruit or fervency... easily my favorite Leinenkugel’s shandy, this can finished well before my intention--a compliment to the brewer... tough to rate higher, however, as the lack of depth in its flavor profile restricts its versatility... as summer drinks go, the best in its mix and a refresher for sure....

Another decent offering from Leinenkugels shandy series. Citrus & orange aroma. Light amber coloring with low carbonation. Taste is the same.

14 overall 94 style. I will never understand RB’s discrepancy between these two categories. Smells good enough, like a light beer creamsicle. Tastes like what you would expect but more creamy than citrusy. Light palate but that’s also to be expected. Overall not a 94 but definitely not a 14. Drinkable, has to be the right setting. markas101 (2468) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI. Murky gold. Orange juice aroma. Watery orange juice flavor. Some faint hops at the end. Seems like juice with some alcohol added. cgams16 (5) - - JUN 24, 2017 does not count
Very interesting taste, great for summer time, not the best summer time beer.

It's a shandy. It's light, tasty, and not that complicated. My least favorite of the citrus shandies.

bottled - summery citrusy aroma. The orange flavor seems artificial. Similar to summer shandy but not nearly as good. ozzy70 (1170) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 23, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy golden, white head. Aroma was oranges, wheat. Taste was sweet, orange, watered down Tang. bvbunited (72) - Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2016
This beer sucks. I hate it. It started with a decent look and aroma but the taste is like old orange juice that had been sitting in the fridge to long you spit it out and throw it away. I would suggest doing the same with this beer jake65 (3944) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Can from the summer mix pack, drank straight from the can. The weakest of the four, imo. Artificial orange and sort of musty to go with the wheat. Bland, sort of musty overall. Bummer, I had higher hopes for this one.
