In this blog, the beer that will be feature is Leinenkugel’s Lemon Berry Shandy. Leinenkugel’s Brewery was founded in 1867 by Jacob Leinenkugel and John Miller in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, It was sold to Miller Brewing Company in 1988. They are known for their Summer Shandy. Lemon Berry Shandy, which is a limited edition, is a line off their Summer Shandy. Let us get into the beer.
Leinenkugel’s Lemon Berry Shandy is a limit edition and a summer seasonal. It has a light cloudy copper color without a head on it. The smell is a ton of berry wheat to it. The beer taste is like their Berry Weiss but a small hint of lemonade to it. The aftertaste is about the only time to me you will taste of beer. To me, this beer is water down vision of their Berry Weiss. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.leinie.com):
Light, crisp and perfect for every season. Our Leinenkugel’s Lemon Berry Shandy is Weiss beer brewed with blackberry juice and natural lemonade flavor. And the best part is this Shandy is available year round. So now every season is Shandy Season.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Twitter: there is no twitter address.
Closing out, there was so many rumors about mixing three Leinenkugel’s beers. I guess this brewery got wind of it and made this beer. I am not saying this brewery is mixing their beers and then bottle it. This beer is fishly like that. I really did not like this beer. It has a light body and too fruit to sweet for me. I love sweet but this is not the right kind of sweet for me. If you are a fan of their Summer Shandy, I would recommend you trying this beer. I believe you will like it. Plus, just because I did not like, it does not mean you will not like it. I just wanted to give my thoughts on it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
