Pours a wheaty golden color with a fuzzy head of 1 finger in my mini snifter.

Aromas of lemon, wheat, lemon bars, lemon icing, cereal, faint blueberry.

Flavor is more bitter than I expected for a shandy. It starts off with some mild pilsner-like hop bitterness, and segues into lemon rind and white bread, with a faint cake sweetness floating off somewhere in the distance. Blueberries can be sampled at the finish.

Feel is crisp, somewhat clean, slightly starchy.

Overall, this is much more in line with a Pale Wheat Ale than a Shandy. Still delicious, not sweet at all.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/7/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon juice/peels, wheat, cracker and white bread; with light notes of vanilla, cream, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of fruit, pale/wheat malts, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon juice/peels, wheat, cracker and white bread; with light notes of vanilla, cream, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy blueberries, fruit skin, lemon juice/peels, wheat, cracker, white bread, light vanilla/cream, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of fruit, pale/wheat malts, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/tart/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and bready/grainy/sticky/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a delicious shandy! All around nice robustness and balance of fruit, pale/wheat malts, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. This tastes like a cream ale base with added fruit. Feels much more robust than a traditional radler/shandy. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Way better than the draft I had last year. Perfect for a shandy. Not too sweet, but refreshing as hell! Blueberry isn’t in the forefront as much as it creeps in for the finish. Love the label. Probably wouldn’t have grabbed it if it wasn’t a blast from the past screaming at me from a damn lemonhead!

Very nice shandy. Lemon leads the nose with slight wheat and blueberry following. Taste is like a yeasty blueberry lemonade. Very drinkable and light. Not overly sweet too which is surprising and appreciated.

Taste: big lemon, semi sweet, but kind artificial lemonade taste, only a hint of blueberries, fizzy mouthfeel. Zesty lemon nose. Gold, clear, with a delicate lace. Medium/lite body. Wish it was more ale than lemonade like a Radler. 10 IBUs
