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.

Growler shared by ChrisPro. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.

A - A finger of white foam settles to a near-complete cap, collar, and minimal lace. Lightly hazed green-tinged pale straw body.

S - Nice key lime aroma, complete with pie crust and whipping cream, as well as a mild hint of sour citrus. Base beer seems to be overwhelmed by the key lime addition, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

T - The taste is quite similar, but without the same intensity of key lime and a bit more pale malt and vanilla. Some wheat and tangy yeast in the finish. Perhaps a tad watery.

M - Watery, medium-light body, low carbonation, a touch grainy, and no obvious alcohol.

D - Very easy to drink - I like it more than the base beer by a fair margin. If it tasted like it smelled it'd be superb, but unfortunately it's merely good. A touch more spritz would also help liven up the flavors, but perhaps the lack of bubbles was due to the age of the growler.

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.)

Thanks, ChrisPro!

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!

First had a 5oz taste, then went back for the whole sha-bang it was so good! Served in 12oz tulip...

A- Pale canary yellow. Very hazy, almost opaque with off white edges. Small film of head falls quickly.

S- Holy shit- this smells like a key lime pie! Tart lime upfront, sweet marshmallow meringue hint, lemony also with a floral finish. Believe it or not, but also a nice graham cracker aroma!... Insane

T/M- Boom shakalaka! A tart pie in my mouth! I mean, so incredibly similar to the nose. I even find some more graham cracker on the palate; and this is endorsed by BA urwithdave (great guy, btw) Such a tasteful and flavorful berliner. Perfectly tart to keep style in mind, but not go overboard. As it warms, the fruit flavor transitions from lime to orange in a way, different but great. Light body, low carbonation, refreshing and ultimately this is world class per style, IMO!

O- Couldn't resist this beer. Tried to get growlers to go- even begged the brewer claiming I drove just from TN for it, but he wouldn't budge... :( Though I may have some higher rated beers on BA when this is said and done- this beer and Zombie Dust would be my 2 beers I could drink ALL day, EVERY day... Unreal!
