3.33/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.
Appearance: pale pink hue, clearly a mixing of a golden wheat body with blackberry juice. Head is a thin finger of frothy white foam. I can't imagine what else this beer would look like with its ingredients, but the overall picture is somewhat sickly.
Smell: light wheaty aroma with a tart, fresh lemon scent. The berry is minimal. I guess it's not bad, but I'm not a huge fan of it.
Taste: lemon, berry and wheat beer characteristics. Really, it is pretty refreshing, and while it may not be my favorite beer in the world, it is definitely as-advertised.
Mouthfeel: surprising! Light body but a good level of carbonation which is actually quite creamy, yet appropriate to the style. I like it.
Overall: this beer just falls a little flat for me. Sure, it is refreshing, but I don't want to drink any more of it.

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

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.
