12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 12/19/2016. Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, herbal tea, honey, brown sugar, wheat, cracker, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, honey, tea, citrus juice, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange, pear, apple, herbal tea, honey, brown sugar, wheat, cracker, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy tea bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, herbal tea, honey, brown sugar, wheat, cracker, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, honey, tea, citrus juice, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a very good shandy style. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt, honey, tea, citrus juice, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nice sweet tea with complimenting citrus juice flavors; with balancing honey/wheat malt sweetness. Very flavorful and enjoyable for the style.

It looks like an autumn beverage. It smells like Tea leaves, great if you like tea. The beer is pretty flat and the head was too large considering. The taste is pretty awful.

Ugh, man. I was looking forward to this beer just because people said it tasted like sweet tea. Maybe a bit, but there's a strange bitterness that ruins it for me. Maybe it's just the fact that the shandy and tea combo just doesn't work. I like most of what's there, but something about this doesn't quite sit right with me.
