True to its advertising it's a lemony beer. The look and smell are refreshing, the flavor is balanced but the lemon tastes like a cheap wine cooler, the feel is crisp and carbonated, overall it's a decent beer for a warm day. My friend brought these over so I can't really complain about a decent free beer.

Backlog. 12 oz bottle. Smells like wheaty lemonade. Pale, pale yellow in appearance with a medium-sized head, surprisingly good lacing. The head retains itself throughout. Even balance between the beer and the lemonade. Refreshing.

Had this as a draft at a golf tournament to quench thirst. Fresh, ice cold and thirst quenching. Alternative to an Arnold Palmer tea while active outdoors. Not at all like a beer. Cloudy but not unpleasant look and mouth feel.

Call me crazy, but I like this ice cold during the summertime. Refreshing, crisp, low abv, and reasonably priced. Love the 16oz cans! Great BBQ or boat choice.

I expected it to taste like a witbier with a splash of lemon. Instead, I got what tastes like shock top and mikes mixed together yet somehow it tastes more gingery rather than lemony for some odd reason.
