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.

Gription79 (2653) - 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 (11555) - 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.

Pours hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is lemon lime soda. Flavor is dominated by the lemonade. Light grainy notes toward the finish.

jredmond (6385) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2011
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.

Nephilium (1518) - Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2011
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.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with a quickly diminishing head. No lacing at all to speak of. Smells of sweet citrus lemons, grass, spritzy on the nose, smells like a lemon jolly rancher. Very light and citrusy. Slight grainy quality goes well with sweet lemon candy, some grass, sugars, with the finish being very short and sweet. Overall, this barely represents beer and defintely a bit artificial.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy and yellow/golden beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt and lemon. The flavor is similar to the aroma. The palate is refreshing. Overall an average beer.
