Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy Beer Review
If you’ve lived in the Northern Midwest, you’ve probably seen these around during those hot, humid summers. It’s the refreshing beer that everyone can enjoy. Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy is a blend of lemonade and wheat beer, which tastes better than you may think.
It’s best enjoyed on a hot day. That’s why it’s only available from March-August, and we’re ok with that. It’s a special treat just for the summer. It’s light, refreshing, and evenly blended between lemonade and beer. It’s an interesting mix between sweet and bitter, that tends to lean a little more on the sweet side.
I’m not usually a fan of fruity, citrus beers. But with Summer Shandy, you know what to expect and it delivers that. I’ll enjoy 1 or maybe at the most 2 in a sitting, before I’ve had enough of the sweetness. My wife loves it, and a lot of other lighter drinkers enjoy this as an alternative to hard lemonade or beer. I’d score this beer as a solid 8/10.
