Orange Shandy by Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company is a 4.2% Shandy made with Oranges.

Commercial Description:
Our latest shandy, Leinenkugel’s® Orange Shandy is a traditional wheat beer with refreshing natural orange flavor inspired by the orange harvests. With a zesty, citrus taste, it’s just what you need to stay on the brighter side of the season.

Got this one in a 6 pack. They sell 12 packs of this as well. I am sure it is sold in many places that sell Leinenkugel beers. It is not a too crazy beer but I figured, might as well. Let’s see what this one is all about.

Aromas:
Oranges, coriander, wheat, honey, cereal grains, lemons, mild berry like that of their “Sunset Wheat” with its fruity pebble like aroma.

Flavors:
Lots or sweet oranges, cereal grains, coriander spice, fruit pebble cereal like taste (possibly the yeast they use or a berry like flavor), mild berries, lemon peel, honey and wheat.

Aftertaste:
Mild cereal and orange juice sweetness. No alcohol in the taste. Crisp, refreshing and easy to drink. 

Overall:
A good beer that actually taste better Shocktop. Way more fruitier than the average orange wheat beer but sweeter for sure. I enjoy the Hangar 24 Orange wheat more but this beer is made specifically to taste like fruity oranges so it works with no surprise. It definitely fits with the categories of summer beer and is one that sits nice on a hot summer day.

Anime Corner:
Nami from One Piece was chosen in this pairing to pair with the flavors, label, and style of the beer. It is all about Oranges here and it is the reason I chose it. Picking oranges and drinking orange juice on a summer day is what comes to mind when pairing this beer.
