2.68/5  rDev -11%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is copper with some lighter reddish hues, head is off to bright white with some redness.

Smell is sugary sweet, syrupy, kinda like soda, notes of berries and lemon.

Taste is literally like soda, syrupy, sweet, lemons, berries, maybe a dash of malt or grains but hardly perceptible.

Mouthfeel is pretty good, not overly carbonated as soda, smoother finish than the strong syrupy notes would suggest.

Overall, does not taste like or smell like beer, I've not had a real radler in a while so this may just be a premixed, so i guess it meets its goal.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - dark, hazy orange with a thin, very fizzy, pure white head that fades fast

S - tart lemon with some faint blackberry notes, sweet

T - sweet, artificial lemonade mixed with blackberries

M - light, crisp, over-carbonated, sticky

This is as advertised. It's lemon. It's berry. It's called shandy. I've had worse if that makes this better. I found everything about this beer to be artificial. It was definitely not an enjoyable drinking experience. I'll pass in the future.

Pours a hazy pinkish golden with a medium white head. Aromas of artificial berry candy. Taste begins with a sweet lemony berry flavor, followed by a hint of grain. The finish is of sour berry, and a bit of artificial sugar flavoring. Mouthfeel is average. Overall a average tasting beer. Cloyingly sweet, and artificial tasting, though better than some malternatives i've had.

This poured out as a murky brownish red color with hue of yellow near the edges. The head was white but faded quickly. There was no retention of lacing on this one. The smell of the beer is very fruity, plenty of citrus and berry aromas, smells similar to a soda honestly. The taste of the beer has a good balance of lemon and berry, but again it's much like a soda or fruit punch. There is a really nice strong wheat flavor in the finish which I really enjoyed. The mouthfeel is kind of watery but has a decent carbonation at least. Overall it's a decent beer. Something I would definitely prefer in the summer as opposed to winter.

Serving type: on-tap

This is the first shandy I ever tried after snowmobiling up north this year. The smell is very pleasant, while the taste is very good as well. Hints of lemon and blackberry are visable throughout. If you drink to many of these, they may give you a stomach ache due to the amount of carbonation. Overall, I thought this was a very good shandy and I am looking forward to the summer shandy.

The lemon flavor was much more prominent than I was expecting. Good flavor, but just too much of it.

Like most Leinenkugel beers, they are willing to experiment with flavors. A more subtle use of lemon would have made this a better brew.

Worth a try, but more than one is a sitting may not be recommended.
