It tastes like lemon. I'm not going to lie, the lemon was over powering and I didn't much care for it. If you like a strong lemon flavor, this may be the beer for you.
Leinenliugel's - Honey Weiss. This wasn't as bad, You could taste the honey in it. It wasn't a particular strong wheat beer or that memorable seeing how I just drank it and nothing really stands out.

Great summer beer. Not a Dan of sweet fruit beers, but this has more tangy lemon flavors rather than sweet candy flavors.

This beer has a prominent lemonade taste. It is tailor-made for a summer's day.

Tried to figure out if I was drinking lemon pledge or carbonated lemonade with a strong alcohol feel.
