Great summer beer. Superb alternative to bud light lime. Tastes like fresh squeezed lemons mixed with beer. If you like Shandys then you'll like this.

Easy going. Lacks body. Too fruity in the beginning.

Great for a few beers on a summer day or if you're just looking to kill a 12 pack.

Summer party beer for sure! IMO the INITIAL taste of the lemon doesn't taste the greatest (not bad) with me. After taste is good.

Hands down the best shandy I've had. Smooth, easy drinking, refreshing and flavorful. Just fine on a hot afternoon. Ignore the poor ratings this one gets. If Founders or Bells or Sierra Nevada or whomever brewed the same beer people would love it.

Had it on a brewery tour while in Wisconsin. Tasted amazing then. But tastes a little bit more pedestrian out of the bottle I bought here in San Francisco. Still pretty good wheat beer, though it does have a slightly bitter aftertaste that reminded me of real barley and hops lager. In my book that's a good thing, but based on the category of beer, I guess that would make it an "adjunct" by witbier standards.

It's like they took a bad beer and tried to pretend that it wasn't by adding in stale Lemonhead flavor. Calling this a beer is to do beer a disservice. Avoid at all costs.

Amazing summer beer. Tastes extremely sweet and smooth. It gets a little hard to drink after a few beers because of how sweet it is though. I would recommend eating something salty with it to balance the sweetness.
