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.

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.

Bomber courtesy of Derivative James. Pours turtle piss light yellow with very little white head. Sweet Ecto Cooler nose. Cloyingly sweet, lemonade, Ecto cooler.

Bomber thanks to 17thfloor. Pours a pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very lemony limey and citric, orange drink notes, a bit of a sharpness. Flavor is much the same, very juicy like a limeade, a touch candhyish. Finishes a bit sweet. Light to medium body and a crisp carbonation. Interesting beer, not sure what a shandy is doing at 7 percent.

OliverG (276) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
20-05-12 650ml: De couleur jaune-blanche, trouble, légèere effervescence et aucune mousse. Ressemble plus a du jus qu’a une bière. Aromes de citron et de menthe fraiche, combiné en une odeur douteuse. Légèrement sucrée avec une forte note sure et acide. Corps plutot léger avec une texture mince et croustillante. forte carbonisation et finale un peu astringente pour une biere qui se veut raffraichissante.

Bomber from bittermestupid. Thanks again Greg. Pours light dishwater gold with no meaningful head. The aroma is citrus - going a bit towards 7-Up. Med body. Flavor is very 7-Up, but there’s some additional complexity. The citrus is more rind, and the malt kicks up the sweet. Tho weird for the U.S. it seems almost balanced - the citrus cuts the malt. But this is not hoppy citrus. Just citrus. More Radler than anything? Glad to have tried it.

Tastes like a standard radler but just amped up in the alcohol. A nice one for the summer.
