Poured from a can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a cloudy reddish orange with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a little lacing. Smells of lemon and berries, but very artificial. Tastes of very fake berries and slight grain, but it is very fake. Beer is carbonated fine and does go down fine, light body. Overall, an average beer.

12oz can poured into a pint glass.

A- The good: 1-finger pure white head, abundant carbonation, a bit of lacing.
The bad: an awful reddish color. Blackberry-lemon-wheat mix that had no appeal for me at all.

S- Berry sweetness with lemon on the side. The blackberry was strong enough to make me pause and double check to make sure it was really beer.

T- The berry is to strong for me, the lemon goes to waste in this offering. Not much else.

M- Syrupy sweet carbonation, blackberry soda-like.

O- Summer shandy I like, the orange shandy isn't bad either. This one's a mistake. My review is tempered a bit by my like for Leinie.

3.52/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, reddish-yellow in color, cloudy

Smell: ginger, lemon, and light berry

Taste: wheat, big lemon, and light berry at the end

Mouthfeel: sweet, light body, medium-high carbonation

Overall:A good sweet shandy that works well on a hot day. I think this is the best of their shandys, yet it is a bit light on the berry taste. I would get it again if I was up for this style of beer.
