2.7/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Pours clouded pink grapefruit-ish hued with a thin head that lasts. Some web-like lacing sticks.
The smell is of blackberry juice. Slightly tart.
The taste is of a blend of fruit juices, mostly notably, blackberry, raspberry and lemon. However, not the same way the real juices are - there is a plastic-like taste to it. A hint of tart keeps it from being as sweet as the fruit malt drinks, raising the score a tad for me. Still it is sweet.
The carbonation stays just under the "too fizzy" category. It is smooth - more from being watery than otherwise, though there is a malty touch to it.
Not a true shandy in my eyes, as there is a lack of "beer" qualities. Though, as stated above not sickly sweet as the fruit malt beverages. If you want a fruit juice brew, it's tolerable, I suppose. I raised the overall just a hair because it is what it is...(better than the berry weiss from what I remember).

3.24/5 rDev +7.6%

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.
