Pours looking like a shandy more than a berlinner weisse. To be fair, they call it "berlin" style wheat beer, but nonetheless, it is what it is, a lemonade looking and equal parts beer type of appearance.

Aroma was actually nice, sweet and sour lemons stood out, and it was the most enjoyable part of the beer.

The taste of the beer wasn't as sour as hoped for, it lacked the sour mash berlinner aspect of it, any sour came from the lemon flavor itself, and maybe some orange or tangerine. Its fine for a shandy. I cracked up at the guy a few spots down from me complaining that this was too bitter and sending his beer back. He sent it back for a reason that I found to be too underwhelming to be a repeat purchase.

Needs more wheat in the mouthfeel if they're gonna rely on the lemons to do all the lifting. (820 characters)
