Harvest Patch ShandyHarvest Patch Shandy
Notes: Bring out the best of the season with our Leinenkugel’s® Harvest Patch Shandy. It’s a traditional wheat beer that we blend with notes of nutmeg, allspice and clove for a flavor that reminds us of homemade pumpkin pie and pairs perfectly with fall. It’s the perfect pumpkin shandy to pick this season. For an added touch of fall flavor, try pairing it with spicy beef chili or caramel flan.

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe; unfiltered pale body with a bright white head and no lacing; solid yam/pumpkin nose with sweet notes and hints of spice; more vanilla and brown sugar on the palate leading to graham cracker impressions, underlying light spice gives notes of fall dessert; sweet-ish, creamy body for such a light brew; this was much better than I expected.

Bottle given to me by a co-worker. Thanks, Amy! :)

Barely see-through hazy yellow, with slight orange tint. Looks like a hefe, or a Berliner Weisse. Slight, quickly-dissipating white head.

Popping the cap gives a whiff of nutmeg + pumpkin pie filling. Nice! :) In the glass, it is the same, with some sour lemon aroma joining in,after the head disappears.

Taste is a mild pumpkin pie flavor, with a little lemon/lime seltzer. The spices are not overdone, which is a plus. Just enough to know it is there.

Feel is light, but not watery, with just enough (for me) finely-sharp carbonation.

Overall, it makes me wish I had a piece of cheesecake to go with it. :) Seems well-suited to be a dessert beer. While I won't be rushing out to get a 6pk, I did like it & enjoy it.

Great desert beer, tastes sweet like a Cinnabun creamer or a pumpkin pie. Would not drink more than one 12 oz at a time. 4.2% like there other shandys. Would recommend if you like A sweet pumpkin and cinnamon Beer. I enjoyed it however will go with the summer shandy next time I’m feeling a shandy , it’s more of my kind of drink.

I had a bottle of this given to me for free by a friend. First off if you don't like pumpkin in your beer you will not like this. This is the first pumpkin beer I have tried and was actually surprised I enjoyed it. Strong notes of cinnamon and pumpkin. For me the taste most resembled pumpkin pie. This is definitely on the sweeter side so be prepared for that. Overall, this is an enjoyable fall time beer that I thoroughly enjoyed for what it is. I am not sure if I would seek this out again as there are currently so many options these days in the beer market these days. Leinenkugel's did a great job on producing this shandy it is just unfortunate that they don't put more effort into the rest of their lineup.

L: Hazy. Pale straw in color. Easygoing on the carbonation.

S: Big gourd note. Nutmeg, honey, clove. Not heavy on coriander or cinnamon.

T: Light wheat malt with pumpkin pie notes. A little malt followed by buttery pie crust, light cinnamon, very light nutmeg/clove, and a honey finish.

F: Light bodied and approachable.

O: The honey in particular is very well done.

Little-to-no pumpkin flavor, but plenty of spice. Light-bodied, and very smooth. Drank a BB 12-2019, but also had it in 2017.

Best shandy I have ever tasted. Created an account just because I feel this beer is worth a review, and I never review things... don’t take my word for it though, grab you a sixxer and enjoy

Served on tap in a shaker pint. Hazy yellow orange in color with a thin ring of bubbles. Aromas of grain, spice, pumpkin, lemon, cracker, wheat. Flavor is different, not in your face pumpkin pie but more wheat ale with spice. Feel is creamy smooth. It's fine.

Agree with most of the reviews. Nice transition from Summer Shandy to Fall Harvest Patch Shandy; will buy this again.

Leiney's makes some excellent shandys. Pours a cloudy buttery yellow. Thick foam that lasts. You can smell the pumpkin spice. Notes of honey and nutmeg. Finishes smooth and sweet. Most people would say too sweet but I like sweetness in pumpkin beer. Would go well with Thanksgiving dinner or lunch or breakfast.

Disappointing head, flimsy, pee-like coloring, tastes like boiled hotdog water. 0/10 recommend... unless you like that kinda stuff.

I am kind of amazed by this one. To me it tastes like a slice of pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Sweet but in a savory way like whipped yams on thanksgiving.
