Leinikug Grapefruit Schandy
« on: May 26, 2016, 12:50:48 AM »
Can not be overstated, hands down, over the top, had to be there, beyond reasonable doubt.... most disgusting horrendous beverage I've ever tried.

Aroma: what the?
Appearance: bug killer
Flavor: inescapable fake grapefruit pitch and unwashed hands overly handled skins, which lingers on and on and on... even Listerine won't touch it.
Mouthfeel: I can't feel my mouth, or wait... hey, who's been feeling my mouth, and could someone tell them to please wash their hands next time?

Overall: give it a try, maybe you'll like it

Not surprised, man. Their lemon summer shandy isn't much better. Fake 'lemonade' flavored 'beer'.

Recommended food pairing: potted meat and a nice rhubarb salad. Or anything that tastes better coming back up

That is an even better part to the review. I'll have to remember this when someone asks me to try this "brew"

Thanks for getting the word out. This can be said about all of Leinenkugel fruit beers. Horrifying.

If you're looking for a similar experience try Shiner's Poteet Strawberry beer. It tastes like a Fruit Roll Up vomited into a Bud Light.

A slight improvement on a Bud Light then?

Give me a Canoe Paddler or Helles Yeah, and keep me away from their fruit efforts.

Yeah in the sense that it adds a little more flavor I guess that's true. But if I had to pick between Michelob Ultra and Shiner Poteet Strawberry I think I'd go with the Ultra. I'd rather go with less flavor than more of one that I don't like.

It's pretty debateable. I don't see much difference between their 'shandys' and the Mike's hard-type 'malt beverages'. To each his own, I guess.

The real question here is why in the world did Jim even try it?

I'm not even sure I would offer it to guests.
