2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: light golden and hazy with a quickly dissipating white head.
Aroma: faint grapefruit and Leon with a hint of malt insets.
Taste: tart, acidic grapefruit dominates, with only the slightest hint of malt. Moderate bitterness for balance.
Mouthfeel: light to medium with a crisp carbonation.
Finish: dry and tart with a lingering grapefruit/citrus flavor on the tongue.
Comparison to Leinie Grapefruit Shandy: Leinie has a much stronger grapefruit aroma, and Leinie taste is much more malt forward as opposed to grapefruit juice flavor of Traveler. Traveler is much more tart and grapefruit forward in taste.

Like the other Traveler shandies I’ve had, way too sweet, and they flavors seems artificial. Unless they were trying for a baby aspirin flavor, in which case, bravo...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This should be called Illusive Travlr. 12 ounce bottle. Pours a murky orange with a thin frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grapefruit juice and maybe some malt if you really look for it. The taste is pale malt, grapefruit, grapefruit zest, sugared citrus. Thin-medium bodied.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy yellow to orange pour with a thin, creamy off white head. Aroma is perfumey and floral citrus, sweet fruitiness and a hint of floury grain. Flavor is very much like orange slice gummy candies up front, followed by some lemon poppy seed cake and some light citrus bitterness to the finish. Medium body, syrupy, but chalky feel and light carbonation. Surprisingly enjoyable for the first couple sips, but cloying and too perfumey and candy like.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super bland for a shandy. Little lemon...and grapefruit was really muted. Euporean shandys and radlers are very superior! Boston Beer can do better than this!
