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.

A pretty nice looking beer. Tan and cloudy with a medium head. The smell is very lemony, but not over powering. Nice smooth feel in the mouth, crisp and refreshing.

I'm not a big shandy fan. So this was just okay for me. Matched well with a light dinner on a hot day.

Pours a hazed straw color with a white head that does not last long. Looks like a wit of sorts. In the aroma, ginger, lemon bathroom cleaner, and cheap beer. Mostly lemon in the flavor but definitely a ginger snap. Scarce bitterness, spent grain, semi tart and full of citrus. Oily, slick texture with aggressive carbonation. Not like a dry cider, but getting there. Tenacious is one way to describe this beer; a few others would say its not as good as many craft and import shandies (also known as Radler in Germany and other parts of the world) . Still, wildly popular and just one variety of shandy from this brewer/lemonade stand.

Tenacious Traveler Shandy has a fairly thick, soapy, white head, an opaque, wheaty-orange appearance, lots of fierce, streaming bubbles, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of a spiced candle and possibly bread. Taste is very spiced (not hot), and one is met with intense ginger, some clover honey, and sweet bread. Mouthfeel is full and heavy, and Tenacious Traveler Shandy finishes sloppy, sweet, rich, and spiced. Overall, for what it is, it’s really well made.

This is actually a good fruit beer compared to the others that I have had. The lemon taste wasn't overbearing compared to Leinenkugel. It had a mix of lemon, grapefruit, and orange. A nice light fruit beer that can be enjoyed during the warm weather.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down rather quickly, leaving a small patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of ginger are present in the nose along with some notes of lemons.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but there is slightly more balance between the ginger and lemon flavors as the ginger isn't nearly as dominant.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and just about has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This shandy is quite similar to ginger ale soda, except that it doesn't have much sweetness and isn't quite as carbonated. It seems like it would make for a refreshing beverage on a hot summer day.
