Hot day outside refreshment. the most lemony beer I've ever had. Didn't think I'd like it, ended up loving it.

A very refreshing beer to have in the summer because of the citrus flavor.

Definitely a good summer beer. Outside on a porch great, crisp beer to have. Otherwise, nothing special but not a bad beer at all.

Not bad for drinking in the heat trying to not get sloshed quickly.

Had this beer at a company party. It was surprisingly tasty. Strong lemon notes but it was smooth almost malty. Overall very enjoyable and easy to drink!

Good refreshing summer beer. Not a purist's beer. Great for a summer outing when a porter or stout would be too heavy.

I don't like this one too much, it's a weird Weissbier with some sort of "lemonade" flavoring... the best thing about this beer is that is has alcohol.

It tastes like lemon. I'm not going to lie, the lemon was over powering and I didn't much care for it. If you like a strong lemon flavor, this may be the beer for you.
Leinenliugel's - Honey Weiss. This wasn't as bad, You could taste the honey in it. It wasn't a particular strong wheat beer or that memorable seeing how I just drank it and nothing really stands out.
