Light gold in color with intense haziness. Eggshell colored head covers part of the top of the beer. Intense aroma of lemon is all I get. The mouth is light and crisp. The flavor is dominated by the intense lemon flavor. That's rally all there is. Refreshing on a hot day. Would have enjoyed more if they had dialed back the lemon intensity.

It is beer that borders with kemonade. Teenagers would like it. It has wierd aftertaste that possible only with US made food chemicals. The idea is mix Real lemonade with Real Wheat beer. When brewed in Midwest as one unit it turned into chemical wierdness.

I have had summer shandy out of a can, bottle and on tap. I would avoid having most beers out of a can, if possible (just a personal preference). Again, if you have read any of my previous reviews I am a citrus aficionado.
A- This beer is a bright yellow when poured into a glass.
S- The smell is lemony sweetness with a bit of a honeyish culmination.
T- It tastes of a citrus, lemon medley of fruit and a bit of maltiness that you pick up in the middle of your palate. I like to savor each mouthful of this beer and drink it on a warm summer day.
M- The texture of this beer is soft on the tongue and enjoyable.
I would recommend anyone that like citrus flavored beer to try this beer. You won't be disappointed. Cheers!

appearance-unfiltered but fairly consistent throughout…would not recommend keeping the bottles for more than 90 days, best if consumed within the summer brew season
smell-fairly true to the lemonade finish, much better than the typical chemical "lime" insert.
Taste-refreshing, definitely on the lemonade side of lemon, which is true to style. Not sure I couldn't take a beer and give it a shot of real lemonade and do better though
mouthfeel was a little astringent for my fast, but a lot of people go for this.
Overall-not a go to beer for me, but as a picnic or cooler addition worth a look

A take off of the German Radler. This is what children drink in Bavaria; although it doesn't come in one bottle, you take a pilsner or weisse and mix with lemonade. Certainly refreshing. A nice sweet drink after a long day working in the yard; really reminds of my time in the beer gardens of Munchen.
