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.

Bomber. Pouring lightly hazy, with a medium golden amber hue, the body shows absolutely no head or lacing. Even a vigorous second pour can’t conjure up anything more than a few clear bubbles. The nose is off-putting, bordering on disgusting, coming across as a fake, syrupy, sugar laden orange-aide more so than a beer. Lemon dish soap comes to mind. Flavors resemble those of Tang, or some other artificial, sugary citrus drink. A sugary, syrupy palate is made worse by the lacking carbonation. There are just no redeeming qualities here. It’s an awful idea, compounded by awful execution. Just a horrible beer.....one of the worst I’ve ever had.

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.

The aroma is lemony/citrusy with malt and candy. The appearance is yellow with no head. The taste is like the aroma and tastes like malt with lemon drops. The palate is smooth despite low carbonation. Overall a nice beer. I like it.

(22oz bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, and orange. Flavor of orange, lemon, and vanilla wafers.

Murky gold color with a thin whisp of a white head that disappeared entirely. This smells like Squirt and lemonade. This tastes nothing like a beer. It reminded me more of a gin and Squirt cocktail than a fruit beer. Light and refreshing with a nice grapefruit juice finish. Very nice summer beer.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2011 Lemon coloured body, no head, active carbonation. Middling or less mouthfeel. Its a decent lemonade, the taste has some dish soapyness to it. Not too sweet, but some residual malts. Nothing special, but worth a glass for drinkability.Neutral aroma..

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.

more than anything this reminds me of a citrus soda. However, this is not a downside on the beer itself, while it doesnt have much carbonation and very little head, it brings a nice crisp sweet flavor with a citrus bang to it. very refreshing.

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%.

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.
