Leinenkugel Brewing Company Grapefruit Shandy

Shandy is beer mixed with a soft drink, such as carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale, apple juice, or orange juice. The mixture is adjusted according to taste and is usually half-and-half. Leinenkugel Brewing Company of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (since 1867) brews this Grapefruit Shandy 4.2% ABV and is a Weiss beer brewed with honey and grapefruit. Grapefruit Shandy pours a hazy yellow color with light pink hues to it and a one and a half finger of white head that fades somewhat quickly into thin lacing. The aroma is very sweet with honey and fresh grapefruit and a bit of Weiss beer scent. The taste on Grapefruit Shandy is really refreshing with lots of sweetness with some touches to tartness from the grapefruit but mostly a nice sweetness from it. The sweetness kind of over takes the Weiss beer but there is a little bit of a faint banana note there. The mouth feel is medium with a sweet and faintly tart grapefruit finish. The after taste is sweet but a little less than the first taste and lingers enough for you to really enjoy it. Leinenkugel Grapefruit Shandy is so refreshing I say its A+. I recommend that you go and try it! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
