Crisp weiss beer gets a little lift from an enticing blend of blackberries, elderberries and loganberries. Our Leinenkugel’s® Berry Weiss brings them together for a flavor that’s deliciously different and available all year long.

Really a terrible beer (and I’m a big Leinenkugel fan) taste was disgustingly sugary. Had a nice complexion and a good smell but unfortunately that was it.

It’s such a good flavor. Can never get enough of it- okay that’s a lie. I don’t get that wasted on these. Even if it’s very sweet it’s a good sweet in my opinion.

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. Best by Nov 21, 22, so plenty fresh.

L---Pinkish red color. Quite clear. Light pink head faded slowly to a cap and left ok lacing.

S---Sweet & fruity. Definitely full of berries.

T---Tastes more like berry juice than a beer. I wouldn't even be able to guess that it's a wheat beer.

F---Light & refreshing.

O---A miss. It's ok except for the taste. And that's kind of a big deal.

Top came off and the scent of raspberry preserves and pastry came out, lightly but definitively. The modest light pink head was maybe a finger, but it was subsumed so quickly. Looking like cherry Kool-Aid with a hint of copper, the taste wasn't a lot different: cherries, raspberries, maybe a hint of wheat and a little metal. It drank easily, was sweet-tart but not cloying, and only a modest amount of carbonation interfered with a very consistent flavor. I might get tired of too many of these in a row,, but these go down on a warm summer night.

Its a tad too sweet for my liking. It’s very spritzy and refreshing until halfway through when it becomes so rich and sweet. A decent beer for the lake maybe.

(12 oz bottle, twist-off crown; JUN0422; purchased single off shelf at Total Wine... gradually decanted into my 9 oz Genesee taster glass)

L: clear, rosee-colored liquid; finger-high foam stand on pour, quickly collapsing

S: berry juice concentrate, more cordial than wine cooler-like; no sense of wheatness.... bland expression; almost craving more technicolor dimension, considering its artificialities

T: mildly sweetish up front, hint of tartness... berry pancake syrup atop said pancake(s)... yes, the wheat maltiness does soon rush forward into view... berry Nyquil builds in the aftertaste... nothing really off-putting flavorwise, but it does taste like a amateurish hefeweizen with a dose of syrup

F: again, back to the syrup... noticeable viscosities and drag up front, thinning out a bit through the finish, but its curious paucity of effervescence is leaving this laborious to swill... clearly this was meant to be slugged at polar temps, preserving that needed fizz

O: another one that I'm baffled as to why I'm just now getting around to sampling/reviewing... I can't recommended this on the basis of it being a wheat beer, but as a fruity malt beverage, I can see it pleasing crowds of less discerning taste (1893)
