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.

Bottle. The aroma is all citrus. The pour is super light. The taste is super citrus, and nice. Light and refreshing. Not sure why the low rating. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, No Head, No Lacing S: Sugary Lemons, Cane Sugar T: Lemon flavored Luedens Cough Drops M: No Carbonation, Light Bodied, SWEET Overall, the whole shandy thing gets a bad rap but this one is a sugar full cough drop. On a side note, my throat feels much better after drinking it...huh.

Straight lemon bomb. Almost a kicked up lemonade. That being said it was very enjoyable. So damn refreshing on a hot day. Understand this is not a serious classic beer but for what it is yummy

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...

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.

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.

REVIEW Style: Fruit beer, shandy ABV: 7% Purchased at: Woodman’s Market; Madison, WI. Pour: Blonde pour with a medium white head. Aroma: Lemon fruit scent, maybe some yeast notes as well. Flavor: The sweet lemonade is there. I described it as very close to drinking a Squirt soda. Ratebeer.com rating: 39/100 Beeradvocate.com rating: 79/100 Overall: C+ My recommendation: A hot day, this works well. The only drawback for me, not enough beer flavor and too sweet. A good 22 oz bottle to share with somebody.

Bottle shared by aobecksy and tibeerious at RBWG. Clear light yellow with a white head. Spicy hop aroma. The flavor is sweet and lemony with no bitterness. Citrusy tartness to finish. Totally hides the alcohol.

TURDFERGUSON (4057) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle shared by aobecksy and tiberious at RBWG. Thanks ’rents! As others have noted below, this was more lemonade than beer. Which was fine at the time, but I did expect a little more from this brewery. Quite sweet, countrytime lemonade with hardly any lager/biscuit malt balance that it needs. Like Leighton said, this is a tough style to pull off.
