BEER INFO

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

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

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!”

It tastes like the stripes gum you chew for 10 secs and the flavored gone. But this beer has a great after taste, very fruity, lemony aftertaste

A beer from my mother in law. WTF. Its yellow and hazy, white head. Smells like lemonade, tastes like lemonade that someone accidentally poured beer into. Feels harsh and acidic (lemonade) with a dry biting finish. Very very not good.

Pours a heavily hazy yellow with 1 finger head. Head receeds very quickly. Smells of lemon zest and sweetness. Tastes of lemon and rind bitterness. Awkward malt finish. Alternative to various session beers. Very drinkable, but wouldn't do again unless putting serious yard work in or enjoying some sun on the beer.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet lemons are present in the smell, somewhat like what you would expect from a lemon tart.
T: Like the smell, the taste is quite lemony but there isn't any of the sweetness that you might expect to find based on the smell—some hints of sourness are perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and could make for a refreshing choice on a summer day. If the lemon flavors were a little brighter, then I would have considered this to be thirst quenching.
