Poured from bottle gifted to me at the Missouri Western @ Northwest Missouri State football game yesterday. Best by 12/24/2012.
A: The color of a Ruby Red grapefruit with a nice, foamy white head. Fruit particulate of some ilk is floating in the glass, and the beer has a bit of a milky hue to it. Intriguing appearance.
S: Wheat, lemongrass, lime, a touch of berry, and a bit of soapiness.
T: Carbonated lemonade up front with blackberry and raspberry juice. A spritz of lime, a bit of wheat, and some rich malt. Very much like a wine cooler.
M: Very spritzy and carbonated, again like a wine cooler. A tangy bite of carbonation lingers on the tongue. No note of hops to speak of.
O: What looks intriguing falls off to what I have come to expect out of a "shandy," a spritzy, lemonade-based wine cooler. My buddy loves fruity wheat beers. I'm not a fan, but hey, it was free.

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.
