COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Tenacious Traveler is invigorating, breaking from the norm of traditional Shandys. A persistent fellow with a spicy disposition, TT is a bright, vibrant wheat beer brewed with real ginger and clover honey that delivers the perfect balance between sweet and spice.

12 ounce bottle from Wegman’s Lake Manassas, opened 6/5/14. Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin fizzy white head. Average head retention. Aroma of tart lemon, ginger, spice. The taste is strong ginger, candied ginger, spice, dry lemon, pale malt. Medium bodied, lingering spice.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid grapefruit juice color and consistentcy with 1-finger white head. Nose is ginger, clover honey, mild wheat. Tastes initially somewhat sweet and citric, with notes of ginger, honey, and wheat flavors at mid-palate, and an odd tasting, somewhat muddled finish.

shrubber85 (7872) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Ginger, lemon and malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with small head. Strong sweet-hot ginger and mild lemon malt flavor. Nice ginger flavor.

BVery (6840) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with almost no head. Lemon and herb aroma. Picking up a touch of ginger. Body seems a bit watery and the flavors don’t really pop.

blipp (6265) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Hazy goldenrod, white head. Lemonade, good balance of tartness and sweetness, a little bit of ginger, and some lighter flowery/grassy notes. Not bad.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Musty orange-yellow color, thin head. Sweet aroma of lemonade. Drinks with a distinct lemon-lime character, super sweet and soda-like. There might be a hint of ginger in the background. Cleanly made and flawless from a technical standpoint. Definitely for the sweet-toothed beer drinker. (#5368, 12/15/2013)

b3shine (5737) - Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy lemon-gold with white lacing. Smells of lemon, ginger, and wheat. Tastes like it smells with a bit of honey too. Average on the palate. Eh.

PorterPounder (5656) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium golden with a sticky frothy white head. light lacing. Aroma has some tart lemon pledge accents, pleasant but artificial, a hint of ginger. Flavor is along the same lines as the aroma with plenty of tart lemon candy sweetness with a touch of ginger to balance it out. Some yeasty notes round it out in the back end. Mouthfeel is slightly pasty. Somewhat refreshing.

EithCubes (5070) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle. Nose is very sweet with strong lemon, some wheat, and very strong ginger. Quite a bit of artificiality going on there, or at least similar overtones, I’m afraid. Pours Cloudy golden with a fizzy white head. Light body, sweet but not explosively cloying. The ginger is vibrant and very much appreciated, cuts through the sugar and even dries things out a bit; finish and aftertaste are essentially dry and lightly spicy. Warming and refreshing, almost a burn in the throat from the ginger, with hints of honey and lemon cleanser, soft wheat. Good for what it is; I’ve had many far, far worse examples in Germany.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a very minimal wispy white head that ran to a thin ring. The aroma is more like ginger ale than beer. Loads of fresh ginger and to a lesser extent some lemon lime soda. Doesn’t exactly smell like beer, though there is a bit of yeastiness underlying it all. The flavor is quite nice and refreshing in and of itself, but not exactly what you want in a beer. Pretty sure my kids would like this. A light hint of alcohol and that underlying earthy yeastiness is the only thing that separates this from a soda. Light bodied and fizzy with a light lingering smack of ginger and lemon. I gues it might be a pretty good shandy, but not up my alley.
