A-An amber blush with a fall like color pallet. Almost the color of roasted apples with a hint of pink. Nice head accompanied by descent pearling
S-Very fruity almost with a stronger blackberry smell and a subtle citrusy accent
T-Defiantly a wheat beer with a bright fruity favor. There is a reasonable balance between the blackberry and the wheat flavor of the beer and the lemon seems a bit like an after though trying to pokes its head out. Not what I expected for a "Fall Shandy"
M-Very bubbly almost sparkling and very drinkable. Given the carbonation and fruity flavor it seems to me like a beer FMB hybrid.
O-It's a good beer but it's not something I would spend time savoring. This is one of those beers that is perfect to crack open after mowing the yard. I also find this to be a good gateway in to beer for those that think it is too bitter or that craft beers are unapproachable. Good for beginners!
I am glad that they are starting a seasonal shandy line and I can't wait for the next one.

Pours a hazy pink color with a fizzy white head that reduces quickly, leaving just a bit behind. Smells of lemon soda, berries and a hint of biscuity malt. Tastes of berry lemonade mixed with a slightly crisp and malty pilsener. Mouthfeel is somewhat light and spritzy, leading to a foamy finish. These shandy's work great on a hot summer day out by the pool, otherwise they would be too fruity/soda like. But they serve a purpose, and I buy them every summer
