Widmer Hefe Shandy

This 4.2% ABV shandy (normally lager and lemonade) is from Widmer Brothers Brewing of Portland, Oregon. It uses their Hefe and adds lemonade flavor.

The beer pours a hazy yellow golden in color, a bit the color of lemon meringue pie filling. There is a tall half inch of pure white foam, like whipped egg whites. The aroma is lemony, lemonade, lemonade concentrate, and lemon meringue pie filling, with a bit of toasted wheat, crumbled graham crackers. The taste follows the aromas note for note. The beer has a dry finish and drinks easy. This is like drinking lemon meringue pie with a graham cracker crust.
