Eh, not bad.
I don't know how much this resembles a "beer", but it's an interesting consumption. The appearance is a pinkish-purpley color that is somewhat cloudy like wheat beers. The smell is right on with berries and lemon. Another reviewer said it smelled like household cleaner...and I don't get that aroma myself, but it has a lemon undertone. It surely doesn't smell like a beer. The taste is very light and refreshing. It starts off very sweet and ends lightly on the palate. The mouthfeel is crisp. It has about the same amount of carbonation on the tongue as some draft ciders.
Overall it's not too bad. I got a 12 pack on sale and I'm glad I tried it. I won't say it's one of my favorites, but it's pretty good. If you like "lighter" beers and enjoy fruity beers, then this one is for you. If you're a hard core "beer guy", then I'd say not so much.
It tastes more like berry-lemonade than beer...

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
