Has some beer-like qualities. Hazy, dark peach color with fruity things in suspension. The head isn't thick, but it never fully dissipates...really. The bubbles are thin and uniform, and give a thin lace. Think wit with some fruit.

Scents include artificial lemonade and raspberry. Similar to their Summer Shandy. The lemon is more prevalent than the berry, but the berries at least make an appearance.

Taste is similar to the smell. Slight wheat presence, but the fake fruit taste overwhelms.

It's a bit carbonated for me. Each sip burns my throat. It's plenty tangy and tart. Very sweet and artificial. It's certainly clean and crisp, it just goes about it a little differently than I'd like.

Not an awful 'beer' for being a shandy, just kind of hard to consider it a good beer when they use fruit juice instead of actual fruit. I could do without the bite of the carbonation. Certainly sessionable if you don't mind the beating your throat will take.

Leinenkugel’s Lemon Berry Shandy has a very thick, slightly tinted white head, a very hazy, pink-orange appearance, with a large, swirling, gray cloud of sediment descending, with lots of ascending bubble streams. There are some lacing rings left behind. The aroma is of lemon drink, and the flavor is of sugary, lemon drink, sourness, citrus juice, and white bread. Mouthfeel is mostly heavy. Leinenkugel’s Lemon Berry Shandy finishes juice dry, very sweet, and gulpable. Overall, for what it is- a fruit/beer concoction, it is very good. For beer over all, it is only average. It is just too sweet!

Last beer out of a Leinenkugel Summer Shandy variety pack.

Cloudy with a faint reddish purple color to it. Tall purplish-white colored head forms and then disappears.

Smells strongly of berries and lemon and sugar. Smells like blackberry soda.

Starts out sweet with a strong berry flavor and a sour lemon finish. Faint beer flavor but this is mostly berry flavored.

Mouthfeel is soda.

Overall it is drinkable but is closer to soda than beer.
