So, here's a fruit beer. There is only one place that makes the best fruit beers I've had, otherwise in a bottle, they tend to underwhelm.
S: Huge lemon smell, natural lemon with a bit of orange and blackberry with a faint plum as well.
A: No head, small lace but sticky.
M: Tiny bitter. Watery. Slight citrus remainder.
T: This was a surprise. It was nothing like a fruit beer, and in fact, nothing like a beer at all. It wasn't a fruit punch either because it was not as sweet. In fact, this was rather enjoyable and I could see having this on a warm summer evening at a bonfire. Of course, I'd use it as an alternative to the occasional wine cooler...
Nice orange impression while sipping. Lemon was not assertive but was clean and present. There was a sweet wash and slight wheat texture. The sweetness is a bit artificial, like Pez candy but it didn't detract. It's the "hairy buffalo" flavor without the alcohol. I hate to rank it low, but this is BA...
O: Again, not really a beer. For what it is, refreshing and light, when you're NOT in the mood for a beer.

Hazy, grapefruit colored body. Thin, white ring for a head. Carbonation is practically nonexistent. Traces of lacing.
Cavity-inducing sweet! Aroma is purely lemonade... Sweet, sweet lemonade. Notes of blackberry tossed in for good measure.
Leinenkugel didn't want to disappoint fans of their shandy products. To keep with this trend, this one is dominant lemonade. Blackberries liven up the party a bit, but the taste is super sweet and forgettable.
Light to medium body. Respectable carbonation. No noticeable alcohol.
How is this a beer? This is a spiked blackberry lemonade. To sweet to enjoy.
