Hazy orange appearance with thick white head that slowly settles down. Smell mainly consists of citrus and orange, picked up some brown sugar.

Taste also consists of citrus and orange. Picked up some sweetness, has a bitter finish. Taste is very light though, doesn't fit the smell. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Aftertaste is dry with a lingering orange taste.

I'm surprised that this is 4.9% ABV from the light taste. Interesting and alternative beer but doesn't have enough kick to it. If you want to try something different, check it out, otherwise it's nothing special.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

500 ml can from LCBO into a pint glass. I picked this up on a whim, feeling like something a bit different.

Appearance- Hazy, dark golden color, kind of like a darker hefeweizen. Impressive 1.5 fingers of head with great retention. Leaves a creamy white head, with a nice fluffy cap. Good lacing on glass.

Smell - Iced Tea, Lemon, Other citrus, maybe a hint of orange, oh and did I mention lemon?

Taste - It tastes like what it says it is. Crossed between lemon iced teas and beer, but not in a sickly sweet sort of way. Again lemon and maybe orange peel in there.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is noticeable, but this works since I think this is best served very cold. Very nice and refreshing and not too thin tasting.

Overall - Very enjoyable and not overly sweet. Perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day and plenty of flavor available as well.

Tall boy can. I was fairly convinced this would be horrible, but it's not that bad. This is not to say that it's particularly good. If I hadn't known this was 'lemon tea' I might not have noticed those flavors, but they are definitely there albeit subtle. The tea is in the initial taste while the finish is a standard, somewhat aqueous lager.

Pours a clear gold colour with a nice chunky head that quickly dissipated into nothing, leaving behind no lace. Smells of iced tea, lemon, and wheat beer. Apparently, they used a blend of orange pekoe and earl grey to make this beer. I could taste the earl grey. Reminded me of when I drank earl grey tea as a kid because of Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek. Strong lemon aroma, with some grainy malts and tea leaves. Tastes a little stronger than it smells. Like someone mixed in lemon iced tea with a rather boring hefeweizen. I could see myself drinking this on a hot summers day after mowing the lawn. Then again, I could also have an iced tea after mowing the lawn as well. Would I drink it again? If it were offered. Would I buy it again? No.
