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.

I truly do enjoy a Summer Shandy every once in a while in the summer. A cold one on a hot day can be really refreshing. It's definitely not my first choice though. Kinda citrusy without overdoing it like some others (cough...Bud Light Lime...cough). A hint of grapefruit too. I would never drink it warm or even slightly cool, it's gotta be cold. Not bad, not a first choice, kinda just mediocre in the summer.
