Decided to try this "experiment" on tap at the PDX brewpub. I was told it was going to be sweet, and it was.

A - Pours a light orange, almost yellow with a thin white head.

S - Lemons overpower here.

T - Light Lemon, kind of like an Arnold Palmer.

D - Very light and fizzy.

O - This beer is only 66% Beer, the other 1/3 is Lemonade. I meant to write down more details, but I forgot. 3.2 ABV, and 15 IBU.

This is actually a Radler (lemonade and Hefe) on tap at the PDX pub.

Nice nearly neon yellow grainy ale with a sheet of off white foam. No lace. Smells lightly of hefe yeast up front, then this is dominated by a sweet lemon character - nice nose. Lemonade is the domineering flavor, but the Hefe at second fiddle is quite appreciable as well. Medium bodied with hi carb and a crispy finish. This beer was perfect for the record temps outside.

It was fantastic! Very flavorful and exciting to the palette. It's abv of 3.7 was very appealing as a summer beverage. The lemonade was forward and refreshing. The wheat base was lite and crisp. I see this is retired but I just had it at the Cascade Cycling Classic and it's a summer worthy beer!
