The perfect summer sour lager.

Had this in the Single Cut tap room over the weekend and it was crisp, dry, refreshing, SOUR and just all-around wonderful.

The color was rose, mesmerizing in fact. I swear if you changed the glassware to a skinny flute-glass you'd think you were drinking champagne. In my opinion this is a very good thing.

The Single Cut reputation has been that of hearty, hoppy, thumping your chest lagers and ales. And in my experience those beers so far have been pretty successful. But I think Kim Sour Lagrrr is a little bit of a game-changer, showing some versatility from this brewery and their willingness to change gears when need be.

A: Poured a hazy greyish purple akin to an Italian eggplant. 1 finger of popping and fizzy head. Definitely had some syrup added.

S: Wild berries and thistle. Like walking through a meadow. Not very sour on the nose.

M: Very light and crisp. High carbonation but not exceptionally effervescent.

T: If you can imagine a not so intense berry Warhead, this is what this beer tastes like. A prickly sourness, black currant, and wild brush character. More sour than sweet, but definitely not intense.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Opaque grapefruit juice with no visible carbonation. Pink hue. No head.

S: Pink lemonade and grapefruit juice. Berry and floral notes as well.

T: Moderately sour. Does not hit the jowels like some others from this style that I've had. Light berry juice flavors and lemon.

Mouthfeel: Thin and carbonated. A touch dry.

O: Very drinkable and refreshing at 3.5% ABV. Not too sour. This is a very straightforward beer, with some more unique berry and floral notes compared to others.

Got this on tap at Alice's Arbor in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

The color was a light pinkish orange like the flesh of a pink grapefruit - very pretty.

I got wafts of lemon zest and fresh cut granny smith apples.

The taste of this brew stands out. The mouthfeel was crisp from the sour but it had a little juiciness that was almost cranberry juice-like. As the beer warmed up and I the experience of the sourness faded, the hibiscus tea notes came through very pleasantly.

A really nice middle of the day summer beer. With the low ABV its especially nice if your planning to get things done afterwards.

A- cloudy orange body with trickles of carbonation.... Foamy pale white head dissipates into sticky lace about the snifter and atop the body...

S- sour and salty, peaches or some other fruit are there... Definitely a fruity profile underneath.

T- still fruity, with lingering peach and lemon zest, i also get a dry taste that reminds me of apricot... Very interesting... Definitely orchard- like...

M- very light, tart, low-carbonation... Drinks easily... Dry mouthfeel so not quite thirst-quenching but still ideal for a summer day...

O- im loving this beer... Quite the surprise to get from a whole foods and from a brewery I don't know too well. I'd say it's great.
