A decent shandy. It’s a little overly sweet but the wheat character and the lemon are well done. Nice carbonation and a good sipper on a hot day like today. I’m happy a craft brewer decided to make a shandy and make it pretty well. Tone the sweetness down a bit and this would be a most excellent beverage.

Tallahassee, Fl - Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy medium golden with an initial white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of Lemonhead candy, instant lemonade and a touch of yeast. Flavor is refreshing and fresh with some natural lemon accents, a touch of lemon drop candy, some brief orange juice notes. Mouthfeeel is about the right thickness for the style. Good summer refresher.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated this as it is one of my favorite Hoppin Frog beers. Citrusy lemon flavor that is smooth and thirst quenching. No way you could tell it was 7% ABV. Did I mention it was tasty, very tasty! I love it when it’s 90 degrees outside and I’m grillin’. Just sippin’ Turbo Shandy and burnin’ the ’dogs.

Hazy yellow/golden pour thin white head ... aroma is sugary and of lemons and light sweet malts ... ... taste is of tart citrusy lemon, not very carbonated, little bit of abv and sweet malts ... mouthfeel is sugary, tart and mellow ... refreshing for a summer afternoon on the grill, but not much else

Cant believe I havent rated this yet. This beer is pure schto cooler juicebox from the 80’s-90s. So Rad. Pours cloudy golden yellow, aromas of echto cooler, orange slices, capris sun, lemonade, hops. Taste is sugar lemonade, orange juice, and slimer juicebox. Not my style but this one brought me back.

Pours a clear yellow body with no head. More of a sweet lemon flavor than sour. It’s okay.

Refreshing. Great summer alternative to lemonade. Not sure why all the haters... My wife and I both thought it was quite good... lemon, then maltiness, no hops.

Nice for a hot summer day, but that’s about it.... too damn citrussy and too near to just lemonade.

22oz bottle. Half-hazy yellow color. Minimal white head. Prominent lemon soda aroma. I guess that’s what a shandy is supposed to taste like, but for me personally, it’s too much. My cider-drinking friend Lindsey loves this stuff, though. Zesty sweet taste. Crisp lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Decent shandy, just not really my thing. 7% is a pleasant surprise, though.

I suppose this tastes like it’s supposed to, but that doesn’t mean it’s good. Smells like furniture polish. All sour lemon on the taste. No thanks.
