COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The release of our Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale is around mid June. Born from European tradition, our Shandy is a refreshing combination of lemon and light malt flavors. Unlike traditional shandys, Turbo Shandy, revs it up a couple of notches with a high test, full flavored approach as only Hoppin’ Frog can do.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a tiny white head. Fresh lemon aroma. Medium body, a little low in carbonation, rather sweet lemon accents - stil fresh though. No real bitterness. Quite decent. 171210

Actually had this beer this past summer and forgot to rate it. Pours cloudy orange with white head. This beer is really overly sweet and just too much. I was pretty disappointed since I like most of their stuff.

sebletitje (9026) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2010
Bouteille Couleur est dorée et claire, mousse quasi inexistante, sauf pour quelques bulles en surface. Arôme est dans la plus pure tradition européenne, de bière mélangée avec de la limonade. Note de citrons fraîchement pressés. Goût, citron, palais tartrique et citrique. C’est rafraîchissant pour les fortes chaleurs avec une fine couche de malt qui balance un peu le tout. En général, je suis plus habitue a ce style étant moins alcoolisé, cette dernière à 7% reste bien légère au palais. Cette bière est bien au dessus que ce que j’ai l’habitude de goûter en Europe, le palais est de citron sans pour cela est trop sucré avec ce faux sucre et autres édulcorants. Ça reste plus que correct pour le style et le but de cette boisson.

skortila (5160) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle @ Hoppin Frog tasting at De Molen Pakhuis. Aroma has lemon sweetness, some malt in the background. Bit hazy, yellow coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is sweet, has lemon, malts. Quite full in taste and alcohol for a shandy. Best shandy I ever had. ;)

Capa (2597) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Woo! Lemonade and lime aroma with plenty of sweetness going on but not much else. Tart lemon and lime flavor with a definite sweetness to it. The least beer flavored shandy I’ve ever had. The abv is well hidden. Could be perfect given the right situation...

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2010
Golden colored brew. Lime, pine and grenadine in both aroma and flavor. Some tartness and citrus too. Very sweet. You can’t tell it’s 7%.

Vaiz (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle at Hoppin Frog Beer and Food Pairings @ de Molen, Bodegraven. Somewhat artificial aroma, loads of lime. Quite refreshing though and although quite sweet, not too cloying. Still a bit too much lemonade for me.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is loads of citrus, limoncello, cider and some spices. Flavour is medium sweet and lightly sour with loads of fruit peel and zest. Lot’s of citrus/lemon and not too sweet limoncello.

Bottle@Home. Very nice shandy. But I don’t like shandy so it will not score high I’m afraid. Very sweet but not sugary or artificial. Ditto for the citrus.
