From 9/22/12 Tasting Notes

Sampled this with my brother. (Spoiler Alert) Thank the Lord, because I would not want a whole bottle. Poured from 12 oz bottle into a 8 oz glass. This was served well chilled.

A) This is a pinkish brew, fairly similar in color to their Berry Weiss. There was about a finger of foam, that appeared to have a pinkish tint to it. No lacing noted...

S) The aroma was more like their Shandy, which is kind of a lemon household cleaner. The berries were noted, but pretty faint compared to the lemon.

T) This is pretty sweet and artificial. The berries are more prominent in the flavor than on the nose. There was something medicinal, it was a little like my kid's berry flavored ibuprofen. I mean, this definitely is beer, or at least kind of beer, but the flavor didn't work for me.

M) Light and quite a bit of carbonation, but that is what this beer calls for.

O) I know my ratings for the Shandy and Berry Weiss are slightly higher than average, but this combo does not work for me personally. Having said that, I can also see how this offering may be quite appealing to others. As for mixing Leinenkugel's beers, I much prefer the Berry and Honey Weiss combo. Nothing wrong with a refreshing honey bear on the patio.

3.24/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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

3.65/5  rDev +21.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz can poured into a lager glass.

A - Cloudy dark peach. Head stays a few minutes. Good lacing throughout.

S - Raspberry and citrus.

T - Raspberry and citrus. If one waits several minutes, a light malt flavor appears also.

M - Medium

O - This is a pleasant, refreshing shandy. The 4.2 ABV is a plus because these go down quick (unless you're into the whole"getting wasted" thing). A great summer session beer.
