Shining with a slightly hazy, golden radiance and topped with fluffy clouds of brilliant white foam, Summer Squeeze Lemon Shandy delivers a refreshing slice of summertime in every sip! Like a trip to the corner lemonade stand -- with a deliciously grown-up detour -- this shandy combines an all-American style wheat beer with a heaping dose of real crystallized lemon. The result is an incredibly refreshing session-strength ale featuring the tang of freshly-squeezed lemonade without the sugary sweetness.
Perfect for any outdoor activity, from swimming holes to sandlot pickup games, Summer Squeeze Lemon Shandy is a great go-to, whether you're looking for a fun, easy-going seasonal fling, or summery brew so refreshing, you're happy to sip it all year long.

Brewing Notes:
Tasting Notes:
  • Aroma: Noticeable wheat-like maltiness with moderate fruity esters and pronounced lemon aroma.
  • Appearance: Deep golden straw color with a slight haze. Firm, lasting brilliant white foam cap. 
  • Flavor:  Smooth malt character of freshly baked bread with faint notes of water crackers. Low bitterness is just noticeable with prominent, refreshingly tart freshly squeezed lemonade flavors lingering after swallowing.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-low body with moderate creaminess and a slight tartness on the back of the tongue.
  • Overall Impression: An easy sipping sessionable ale with well-balanced malt and hop character and a refreshing, lingering lemonade flavor on the finish. 

Brewmaster Brad's Thoughts:

"Not much is more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of fresh lemonade, or for that matter, a cold, lower ABV American Wheat Beer. Brewers have known this to be a great combination for a long time, and it is high time for a recipe kit featuring this classic combination. The base beer is a simple American Wheat with moderately low bitterness and then it is dosed with real, all-natural, preservative-free crystallized lemon. Not to be confused with lemonade mixes or soft drink mixes, the crystallized lemon in this recipe is just that -- lemon. Since the crystallized lemon contains no sugar, the beer gets a delicious dose of lemonade flavor without adding additional fermentables that could lead to a renewed fermentation or possible over-carbonation in the bottle. Give this one a whirl, it is truly a refreshing treat even for the biggest of hop heads."

Excellent brew

Definitely taste the lemon! Imo, the lemon note was very natural, reminiscent of the fresh lemons we picked from a tree in my grandparent's yard when I was a kid, rather than the more common artificial, candy like lemon flavor so often found in brewing. Very refreshing!

Zombie dirt and Summer squeeze

I was a little delayed in brewing so I haven't been able to taste test yet, but i have 10 bottles of Zombie Dirt conditioning now and Summer squeeze is in the fermenter. The reason I am reviewing is more the customer service I received. When I inventoried the kit, a 1 gallon, I noticed that I was missing one of the packages of hops. I contacted Northern Brewer and Marie was very apologetic and placed an order for the missing hops immediately. She also included a pint glass by way of apology. Customer service like this can't be beat.
