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...

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
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.

fidelis83 (2005) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 19, 2014
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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks DSG. Pours yellow with an small head, aroma of orange flavored drink from the 80th,grapefruit, flavor is pretty much the same with malt and tangerine, light bodied.

milewide (1580) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2014
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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz bottle this beer poured a fizzy hazy yellow color with a small soapy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet grapefruit soda. The flavor was sweet grapefruit soda. Medium length finish. Light body. Tasty but not very beer like.

Bottle. Delicous graefruit flavor that is not bitter and is perfectly balanced. A really nice shandy.
