Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy
4.2 % abv
Poured into a room temperature pint glass from a 12 ounce bottle.
Appearance: Light and a little bit cloudy. Not an overwhelming amount of bubbles, leaving minimal head.
Aroma: Freshly squeezed citrus smells with a definite emphasis on lemons. Yeast and wheat aromas as well.
Taste:The word delicious really sums up this beer. It was very refreshing and the lemonade was not overpowering in regards to the slight wheat taste. A little tart but also sweet at the same time.
Mouthfeel: A little sugary from the honey, leaving my mouth feeling a bit sticky.
Overall: As someone who is quite hesitant about trying fruit-based beers, I really liked this one. My friend had a few bottles in his fridge the other day and I decided to try one on a hot, sunny afternoon. Leinie’s was able to provide a nice lemonade flavor without compromising on the beer characteristics. The tartness from the lemons was just enough without making the beer sour.
