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.

sebletitje (9645) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2010
Bouteille Couleur est dorée et claire, mousse quasi inexistante, sauf pour quelques bulles en surface. Arôme est dans la plus pure tradition européenne, de bière mélangée avec de la limonade. Note de citrons fraîchement pressés. Goût, citron, palais tartrique et citrique. C’est rafraîchissant pour les fortes chaleurs avec une fine couche de malt qui balance un peu le tout. En général, je suis plus habitue a ce style étant moins alcoolisé, cette dernière à 7% reste bien légère au palais. Cette bière est bien au dessus que ce que j’ai l’habitude de goûter en Europe, le palais est de citron sans pour cela est trop sucré avec ce faux sucre et autres édulcorants. Ça reste plus que correct pour le style et le but de cette boisson.

skortila (5504) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle @ Hoppin Frog tasting at De Molen Pakhuis. Aroma has lemon sweetness, some malt in the background. Bit hazy, yellow coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is sweet, has lemon, malts. Quite full in taste and alcohol for a shandy. Best shandy I ever had. ;)

Capa (3009) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Woo! Lemonade and lime aroma with plenty of sweetness going on but not much else. Tart lemon and lime flavor with a definite sweetness to it. The least beer flavored shandy I’ve ever had. The abv is well hidden. Could be perfect given the right situation...

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2010
Golden colored brew. Lime, pine and grenadine in both aroma and flavor. Some tartness and citrus too. Very sweet. You can’t tell it’s 7%.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle at Hoppin Frog Beer and Food Pairings @ de Molen, Bodegraven. Somewhat artificial aroma, loads of lime. Quite refreshing though and although quite sweet, not too cloying. Still a bit too much lemonade for me.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is loads of citrus, limoncello, cider and some spices. Flavour is medium sweet and lightly sour with loads of fruit peel and zest. Lot’s of citrus/lemon and not too sweet limoncello.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2010
[email protected] Very nice shandy. But I don’t like shandy so it will not score high I’m afraid. Very sweet but not sugary or artificial. Ditto for the citrus.

more than anything this reminds me of a citrus soda. However, this is not a downside on the beer itself, while it doesnt have much carbonation and very little head, it brings a nice crisp sweet flavor with a citrus bang to it. very refreshing.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2010
The aroma is lemony/citrusy with malt and candy. The appearance is yellow with no head. The taste is like the aroma and tastes like malt with lemon drops. The palate is smooth despite low carbonation. Overall a nice beer. I like it.

(22oz bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, and orange. Flavor of orange, lemon, and vanilla wafers.
