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.

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

It looks nice enough. Golden and foggy. However it doesnt taste like much more than orange juice. There is a slight, SLIGHT hoppy aftertaste, but its nothing that a bottom shelf beer couldnt boast. Its a decent alternative to low quality/price shandi beers, but its nothing i would write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has lemon candy...like a jolly rancher...and some wheaty notes. Tastes like lemon hard candy too...not acidic or tart...more sweet. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish has refreshing lemony citrus.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; light and inviting. Smells moot. Tastes good; definitely the best shandy I’ve ever had. Mouthfeel is good. too. Overall, a great shandy.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, and not much else. Similar to a sprite. Taste is much the same. I love Hoppin Frog but not this brew.

JStax (4578) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a weizen glass. Appearance is bright, almost neon yellow with a large white head of foam that dissipates almost immediately. Aroma is a nearly offputting citrus yeast blend that should have given me a heads up to go ahead and pour this down the drain. Taste is like a minute maid lemonade that got dumped into a bag of sugar and then into some hefeweizen. I did end up dumping about half the glass in the yard. It’s just too sweet. Almost sickly sweet.

markwise (5085) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2012
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 (10870) - 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.
