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.

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.

ahhh yeah, ah yeah. This is the perfect summer beer. Lemon, and a little orange aroma. Amazing sweet lemon/citrus taste. So smooth and light and refreshing. Like Leine’s Summer Shandy super charged.

Pours hazy pale yellow with small white fizz. Smells very citrusy and has a strong lemonade character. Taste is citrus fruit and then lemonade. Light-bodied with a prickly texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale finishes with a little citrus bitterness.

Cant believe I havent rated this yet. This beer is pure schto cooler juicebox from the 80’s-90s. So Rad. Pours cloudy golden yellow, aromas of echto cooler, orange slices, capris sun, lemonade, hops. Taste is sugar lemonade, orange juice, and slimer juicebox. Not my style but this one brought me back.

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.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated this as it is one of my favorite Hoppin Frog beers. Citrusy lemon flavor that is smooth and thirst quenching. No way you could tell it was 7% ABV. Did I mention it was tasty, very tasty! I love it when it’s 90 degrees outside and I’m grillin’. Just sippin’ Turbo Shandy and burnin’ the ’dogs.

This is refreshing, the only shandy I had tried before it was Leinie’s. This tastes better, and I just wish I had bought more on my recent trip to Ohio.

Clear, straw yellow. Small white head. Citrus, lemon, yeast. Sweet. Lively and superbly refreshing and thirst quenching. Perfect lighter side of medium body. By far my favorite shandy Ive tried. NOTHING better after some time in the summer sun. 22oz goes down in minutes...

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.

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.
