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.

22oz bottle from a generous trader. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big lemon, lime, and citrus, along with mild bready wheat. Flavor is like a lemon-infused Sprite without all of the sugar. Lemony and citrusy with alcohol instead of sugar. Finish is sweet citrus. Interesting take on a shandy.

Dogbrick (9438) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2012
This brew pours a cloudy yellow-orange color with a minimal white head that evaporates quickly. Sparse spots of lacing on the glass. Citrusy aroma with some malt behind it. Medium body with a zesty orange and lemon character with some sweet malt and yeast in the background. The finish is fruity with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Maybe not the right time of year for a beverage like this, but pretty average overall.

Bomber. Poured cloudy pale golden with nothing going for head.. did not look good. The aroma picked up freshly-squeezed and sweetened lemons over a bready base.. touch of honey too.. warm, sour undertones.. no surprises here. The flavor found more tart lemon zest throughout, with a pale and bready base.. some lemon meat down there too.. sweet-tart feel on the finish.. too many sugars to be really refreshing. Light-medium bodied, tart, and grainy on the palate.. very little carbonation.. OK feel and flow.

11/24/11. Happy Thanksgiving! 22oz bottle courtesy Tim! Hazy yellow pour, reminds of a pale witbier, with a small white head that fades. Light, sweet aroma of lemon peel, a bit of window cleaner, and pale malts. Sweet flavor of lemonade, a bit of cleaner again, something that reminds me of mint, and a touch of sweet maltiness. Can’t say I love it.

DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Light vibrant clear yellow pour, little carbonation and a lemony aroma. Flavor was mostly lemon, malt and that was about it. Decent beer and not overpowering on the lemon, but more of an alcopop in taste.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle. Light hay for the malt, moderate perfume for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of tangerine, lemon and fruit wine. Head is none existant and color is hazy amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation, Too fruity and too citrusy for me to like this beyond a refreshing boat drink. Pass.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 Bottle. 22 oz. Split with Vinnie on multiple occasions, one being tonight. Pours a light yellow straw with a fuzzy white, thin head. Aroma of granny apples, pure fresh squeezed lemonade, pinapple Haribo gummy bears, Orange Crush soda, and Ectoplasm Hi-C. And get this: it tastes like a cleaner, lighter, slightly boozy version of an Orange Crush. Holy fucking shit. This is the ultimate in extreme refreshment and delicious, rich tastes. Finishes with an effervescent, silky smooth lemon wash.

22 ounce bomber, that poured a clear sparkling yellow color. Aroma of citrus and that is pretty much it. Taste is lemons, and a ouch of lime, a slight tart finish. Real refreshing for an outside beer and cooking on the grill in Florida. doesn’t taste like a 7% beer, tastes more like a Sprite.

dalekliz (899) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with lots of bubbles. Aroma is sweet and crisp, very bright and refreshing, of citrus and sugar. Taste is sweet and tart, juicy lemon, sugar, and just a hint of malt. Lingering tartness with a tacky sweetness. More like an alcopop than a beer, but very refreshing.

Poured from a bottle. This smells and tastes like carbonated lemonade. I give it credit for hiding the alcohol well, but it would be way cheaper to make an electric lemonade, which would be about the same. Not a good beer at all.
