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.

Bottle at brady’s in Trevose. Light golden color. Aroma is lemon zest/orange. Taste is lemonade, very sweet, with a hint of a grainy malt backbone and tiny bitter finish. It’s light and refreshing, a really nice warm weather beer. Not amazing but kind of nice.

unclemike (2687) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Pours a light golden with thin white head. Smells like a lemon/lime gatorade to me. Taste of lemon/lime and citrus. Not terribly sweet in the finish actually. Very refreshing, probably couldn’t drink too much of this though.

Gription79 (2716) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Poured straw with no head. Nose was dominated by citrus/lemon lime. It also had a grain sweetness to the smell, as well as mead like honey notes. Taste was lemon with pilsner malts. Refreshing, effervescent, a really interesting great summer beer.

thewolf (11651) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle, bought @ HJ Hansen, Odense.
Pours clear yellow-golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, citrus and lime. Highish carbonation, light mouthfeel. Flavour is sharp, somewhat dry, sugary citrus. Rather dry in the finish and really not very good.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Bottle split with Pat and Vin. Pours a bright hazy orange body with some minor white lacing. Aroma is fresh capri-sun, juicy sweet lemonade. Mouthfeel is juicy and refreshing - essentially closer to juice rather than beer - with notes of Slimer Ecto Plasma Hi-C.

22 oz bomber. Pours a cloudy gray yellow orange with a very tiny quick fading white head. Aroma of a lemony orange fruit concentrate and orange gum. Taste of lemony orange fruit soda. Hard to believe this is classified as beer.

Well....I had to make sure this wasn’t a lemonade, because thats all I tasted, It was good lemonade, but I do prefer some Beer flavor with my Lemons. That being said. It poured a cloudy yellow with minimal head. low carbonation. lemon on, in and around the nose. little bitterness before some strong citrus notes of lemon and a slight graininess, some lingering sweetness that isn’t overwhelming but doesn’t work for me. It is still refreshing, but dammit, I want Beer. (7% abv.....who would have thunk)

22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a 1/4 inch white head that went away pretty quickly. No lacing whatsoever. The brew smells like lemon/limeade made with some kind of sugar substitute. It tastes the same way to me, mostly like some kind of lemonade with lime flavor and sugar substitute, maybe like a diet lemonade drink. It sure doesn’t taste like good lemonade. After a while it just gets harder and harder to finish this bottle. Mouthfeel/body is light, and it has decent carbonation. Overall, I just don’t care for this brew. I’ve had worse but I certainly won’t buy this again, especially for $6.99 a bomber.

This starts with the aroma of lemonade. It pours a slightly hazy light yellow with no head. This is a shandy, tasting of lemon soda. If that’s the flavor you like, you may enjoy this beverage, but if I’ll stick to a good sour lambic in the summer if I want a tart beer.
