It actually looks like a hazy white ale, bright yellow hazed sunshine summery shandy. Head forms nice bright white intricate lacing I can't complain about appearance, I have passed this stuff up since it was released, it showed up at my local, but I'd figure I would try now. Aroma bright lemon peel, bitter pith, bready notes hints of yeast additions. Flavor biscuit malt at the base with a big rounded sweetness, juicy lemon meringue creamy textures, balanced spritzy lemon lime peel additions almost like a witbier spiked with Sprite. I has you burping up the lemon peel notes after a few sips, actually much less offensive than I was expecting. Refreshing summer style ale, somebody had to compete with the success that Leinenkugel's has had with their summer shandy cans. As I inspect the label I keep thinking this looks like it has Sam Adams written all over it, the fine print reveals that it's brewed by Boston Beer Company marketed by a company out of Burlington, VT. I expect the same from the Angry Orchard offerings, just by looking at the packaging. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth refreshing summery offering that is being sold year round, I'm not sure how often I plan to partake but it's honestly pretty solid for what it is. I like the lower abv, at 4.4% abv this would be easy to imbibe a couple especially if I take my acid reflux meds, that's the only mouthfeel gripe I have is the acidity...carbonation is dead on carries it well really not cloying to me at all. Overall if you enjoy this type of beverage after cutting the grass, it's definitely refreshing for the warmer months.
