A- Looks like orange juice poured into a glass. Average, 2 finger head forms and retains very well. Lacing is ok. Body of the beer is so hazy and bright yellow-orange that it really just looks like orange juice.

S- Juicy, ripe oranges right up front. Effervescent quality makes this one smell like an orange soda in the middle. On the back end of the scent it is mostly more orange, but just a touch of wheat.

T- Starts with some dry wheat malt that is fairly light and just a little grassy. Orange kicks in a bit after the wheat and is a little sweet before turning towards a slight tangy juiciness. Ends with more dry, grainy wheat.

M- Medium in carbonation and fairly thick across the tongue. This one is very smooth with the amount of wheat in it. Rather easy to drink.

Overall, it wasn't as sweet and juicy as I expected a mass produced shandy to be. Orange is noticeable, but not too dominant. This one tastes basically like a Blue Moon that they put an orange slice in.

A. It's hazy with a yellow-orange color. A good deal of bubbles coming up the side. Big white head that dissipates quickly and no real lacing.

S. Very orange and wheaty.

T/M. My god, the orange peel in this is over the top. I can't really taste anything else because it is dominated by the orange. Carbonated and tingly. Some metallic aftertaste. Light bodied. A bit watered down.

O. The overall generic orange taste is just way too overpowering.
