A- Pours a hazy, light orange to almost pink hue. A medium sized, frothy, 2 finger head. Retention was surprisingly good, and lacing was decent. Typical wheat beer look, but with some fruity colors thrown in.

S- Like blackberry lemonade. Sweet and light, with a lot of sweet notes, but also a hint of lemon tang. Fairly complex for a Leinie's, but most of the flavor is sweet, fruity, and a little tangy.

T- Just like the scent. Light and sweet with lots of fruit. Simple and straightforward, very fruity and sweet, yet not completely one dimensional. Lots of traditional wheat beer characteristics that are covered up by the dominant fruit flavors.

M- Light and easy to drink. Great summer beer, but also has the ability to be versatile for all seasons. Could drink as many as you want, but the wheat base could be a little filling.

Overall, a surprisingly delicious and versatile beer. Nothing especially good, but way better than the summer shandy. This is a good gateway beer for BMC lovers.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Finger and a half white head. Thick, but low retention. Light coppery color with very little clarity. Interesting looking beer.

S- Blackberries, raspberries, lemons. Smells like a pastry. Very sweet and fruity. No notes of hops or malts that I can detect though, which is unfortunate.

T- Berry flavors, lemon pledge and some caramel hops. Very fruity, no beer backbone to give it any umph. The syrupy flavors aren't helping.

M- Smooth, light and creamy. Not bad, but could be less syrupy.

O- Way too sweet for easy drinking.
