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- 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.

Visiting Singlecut for the first time (ps - love the atmosphere!)
Beautiful golden straw in color, slight haze but without any funk. When first poured there was at least 2 fingers of foam (even after careful pouring for more than 2 minutes), but that fizzled down to a thin line. No lacing after consumption.
Aroma is tart, breezy, and hints at some funk. No hop presence, light malt aroma.
Sour floral notes with a very light malt backbone. Sweet and pungent, but not sugary sweet - tart sweet (if that makes any sense).
Crisp and extremely refreshing. What starts out "thin" based on the sour element quickly turns into a malty bath of the tongue. After taste lingers but lightly. The coating the lips stays "sweet" and tart long after the sip has been had.
Overall, this is a wonderful beer. I would be happy to buy growler after growler of this during a warm/summer day to share on a back patio or deck.

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.

On-tap at Brklyn Beer Garden, JFK Airport Terminal 2, NYC
A: The beer is hazy light rosé in color with no visible carbonation and somewhat resembles peach juice. It poured with a thin white head that died down and left lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass and eventually completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with slight hints of hibiscus.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is slightly sour and has hints of hibiscus flowers.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly tart on the palate and has a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. It would make for a good selection on a hot summer day.

At George Keeley in Upper West side, NYC. Listening to Tina Turner with Eric. The appearance of this beer is a cloudy light orange color. Smell is tart, light sour notes and fruit. Mouth feel is tangy and sour but very refreshing! Taste is fruit of hibiscus, orange and maybe apple. It's smooth sour, light fruit and a go to beer for me! Love this and would recommend to a friend.

I don't generally like sour beers, so I was skeptical of this one. But wow--it was so smooth! The sourness is wonderfully balanced by the sweetness of the hibiscus flavors. You taste a little of the sour tartness, and then it melts into floral and fruity flavors, and everything is just incredibly well-balanced. Tastes kind of like pear cider, arguably more than it tastes like a standard beer. Color is a very rich orange-red cloudy opaqueness. No hops to speak of, no head to speak of. Truly delicious. Very happy with this beer.
