Enjoyed at the Seventh Sun opening party.
Poured a hazy golden yellow, crisp fizzy white head.
In the nose I got sweet fruit and white pepper all dominated by lime and other citrus notes.
The flavor was nice and tart, the sweetness and tartness of the "lime" do shine through very well, there is a nice sweet presents in the finish.
Mouthfeel was pretty light with a high carbonation.
Overall, very refreshing, the key lime tea blend was very well highlighted. I can't wait to try this again!

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. Nice lime note on this with a touch of sweet wheat bread. Citric and lactic tartness and a nice note of lemon zest. The flavor is mild to moderately tart, though there is a mild wheat flavor and sweetness. Enjoyable lime and lemon flavors which also add a bit to the tartness.

Big thanks to sendsilk by way of jcartamdg for hooking me up with a pair of growlers from this new brewery. I appreciate the effort gents in looking out for me and my quest to try new offerings in this style!
Poured from a 1-liter swing top growler into a berliner bowl. The brew appears a clouded pale yellow that almost looks creamy like vanilla yogurt. A finger worth of white froth appears when poured down the middle of the glass and fades leaving patchy lacework on the glass. Because I just had the moonlight version of this brew, I will make a lot of comparisons to that. This offering not only is more clouded but also offers better head stability than the moonlight.
The smell of this brew has a minor fruited quality that does not initially jump right out and scream lime. However, as it warms up it does pick up a distinct lime character that is zesty and tart smelling. As I stew over this brew more, a bit of candy lime aspect comes out overtop of a base grainy sweetness that is very much like wheat and/or cereal.
The taste is slightly more zesty and tart than the moonlight version. There is a faint bitterness that to me comes across like the bitterness imparted by the zest/pulp of limes with the faintest oily touch that persists into the aftertaste. The grainy sweetness has a cereal to bready flavor about it that is quite pleasing. I almost get a light touch of vanilla yogurt flavor included from mid palate into the aftertaste. As I enter the second half of my glass, and the brew warms up a bit. More of a yogurt to mild cheese note comes out that can be found in both the flavor and aroma.
This is a light bodied brew with modest amount of carbonation. For a light brew, it carries with it almost a smooth creamy feel. This is a very quaffable brew that I could see myself killing several pints of effortlessly during the summer. While the tartness of this brew is not up to the level as some other's takes on the style, I found it impressively balanced and equally enjoyable. Perhaps my favorite aspect of this offering is just how clean and easy drinking it is for nearly 5% abv (not to mention how masterfully hidden that alcohol is.)

A - Pours a hazy golden yellow color, white head, thin collar.
S - Citrus, key lime tart notes, light sour pucker. There's a touch of malt in there, which reminds me of a cracker crust or something, pretty neat.
T - Similar notes to the nose, key lime, citrus, bready malts, yogurt, light tart fruits. Not quite as key lime-forward as I was expecting from the nose, but still some nice tart fruits and citrus. Finish is dry tart citrus with a touch of acidic sour.
M - Light body, light carbonation (older growler), refreshing, dry finish.
O - A decent berliner, but not my favorite from 7venth Sun. That said, I would drink early & often. This brewery continues to do good things and I look forward to more stuff from them!
