If you enjoy the taste of Fruit Loops, then you will probably like this beer.

This unfiltered wheat ale, brewed with honey and "natural lemonade flavor", is an attractive beer: its cloudy, pale-straw-colored body could be mistaken for lemonade, except for the giant creamy white head and thick swoops of lacing. Tart, mouth-watering lemonade completely dominates the nose; these citrus notes are the focus on the palate as well, but are less insistent, leaving some room for a nice light wheat backbone to show through. The finish is balanced, with a moderate citrus tartness that lingers awhile. The crisp citrus flavors, light creamy wheat body, lively carbonation and low ABV combine to make this an ace summertime lawn-mowing beer.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass.

Appearance: pours a 2"+ white pillowy head that drops at a moderate rate leaving faint lacing. Very cloudy yellow color (pretty much like lemonade).

Aroma: strong lemonade aroma with a bready malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: very light and watery with a dry finish.

Flavor: lemon, light barley sweetness maybe a hint of hops in the finish.

Overall: decent for what it is. I would think that Fresca or Mt. Dew fans would enjoy this beer.

Way too fruity; beer or lemonade, not both.
