Brewed by:
The Traveler Beer Co.
Vermont, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Curious Traveler is our take on a classic European Shandy that has been brewed for generations. We started with an American craft wheat ale, which delivers a crisp, light body. We then added fresh lemon and just a touch of lime to bring out a bright, juicy citrus aroma and flavor. Simply, the Curious Traveler is “Quite a Refresher!”

This stuff is so amazing I almost hate it haha!! My buddy got me on it and now we literally drive all around Lexington, Kentucky to find it when we decide its one of those nights!! It's not heavy, but doesn't taste watery at all like a lot of the beers I have usually drank and it is very refreshing!! I have never in my life given a review on a beer, but I had to on this one. Great job on this one!! I've always been pretty much a domestic beer guy (Coors Light, Bud Light, etc.) and loved the price of those!! However, Lemon Shandy is a tad pricey, buttttttt it's so freaking good that I can reason with my wallet to cover the expense. Great job Curious!! I haven't tried any of your other beers yet because I haven't seen them anywhere, but when I do find them I hope they are just as good as the shandy. I tell everyone I meet how good it is so I hope business is going great for you all!!!

Great citrus/malt balance. Great citrus bouquet and smooth, light malty finish.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

This beers pours out a radiant hazy yellow with a tightly packed white head. The aroma is superb, it's got a realistic lemon note over sweet malts. The taste is simple, refreshing, and delicious. Lemon and beer, married together in perfect harmony. Nothing artificial tasting here. The best commercial shandy I've had to date. The mouthfeel is light and well-carbonated, and the drinkability is great. This is just a superb and refreshing brew. It does everything I want it to, which is be deliciously lemony and refreshing.

Um ... this isn't from Sam Adams or Boston. It's out of Burlington, VT. It's a start-up that has a great future.

This beer isn't like the ultra-sweet summer shandy beers that are in vogue right now. Yes, it's in that neighborhood, but this beer has a nice balance of a grapefruit-like bitterness to it. It smooths out the sweetness and makes this the most drinkable summer beer of its kind.

FIND this beer. Embrace the stache!
