S: Lemon and a hint of banana.

T: Lemon up front with just a dash of hops.

M: Very clean and crisp with great carbonation.

O: A refreshing light beer for the warmer months.

A 500 mL bottle that I picked up at the brewpub. Unlike earlier experiences with Weeping Radish bottles, this one isn't skunked! That, in and of itself, makes it a winner.

A: The radler is a pale sunflower yellow color, strongly influenced by both the light ale base and lemon. No head to speak of but some of the beer is lacing.

S: Not much aroma to speak off. Some grains but little else.

T: Lots of lemon with this one, but more syrupy and sweet than tart. The body strikes me as a kolsch, light and airy with a smooth grainy flavor. The lemon is crisp and sweet, neither puckery or cloyingly sweet. This works on the refreshing, enjoying for the sake of enjoying level.

M: A well-balanced lemonade with a touch of alcohol. This is another indication of the quality that Weeping Radish can put out when they want to (just seems like they don't care).

D: The ale is a nice drink, mild and sweet. It exceeded my expectations.

Not bad. I had it on-tap at the Brewpub. The bartender (may be the brewer) described it as a Kolsch with some lemonade in it. It didn't sound great but a better alternative than squeezing a last glass of Weizen out of a near empty keg. Poured a lager -type gold color with a decent size white head. Left lacing but head retention was weak. The aroma had a little lemon in it but basically mild grassy hops.

Flavor was mild, pleasant. The lemon and sweetness were evident but cut a bit by mild hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel was rich enough and crisp. Drinkability is ok, not a great beer but you could put down a few of these on a warm day. I noticed that this was the only beer they did not bottle. The bartender can adjust the amount of lemonade that goes into it as well (mine didn't have much).

Purchased at the brewery/farm/restaurant in Jarvisburg. This is admittedly my first experience with this type of beverage so I am a bit intrigued. Here goes....

Pours a light golden straw color with about a finger of white bubbly head. Very little lacing.

Wow. I could smell the lemon as soon as I popped the cap off. Lemon is the strongest player here, with a bit of lemon-lime soda, some grains, and a hint hops. Smells like a summer refresher, for sure.

The taste doesn't disappoint. Refreshing, crisp blend of lemon, grains, and touches of hops and other citrus fruits. It's like a Hard Lemonade that's actually drinkable.

Very crisp and light mouthfeel. I am wishing I would have bought more than two of these now. Maybe I will be nice and share my last one with a guest...or maybe not! Different, but enjoyable.
