Notes/Commercial Description:
It’s hot baby, we needed to do something - so a sour lagrr! infused with hibiscus (and black currants, but who’s counting) seemed like something that would help beat the heat.

Had this at the brewery... t'was perfect on a nice summer day on the patio.

A: Gorgeous deep pink color with high carbonation

S: Hibiscus, sweet citrus (apparently it also has black currents in it) and faint sour malt.

T: An excellent blend of all the above - everything nicely balanced and not over the top

M: Thin and mildly fizzy, just right

O: This was a huge surprise by a brewery I'm more and more impressed by each day. Viva Queens yo!!

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.

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.

On tap at Pizza Plant in Williamsville, NY.

Pours a light pink-ish amber, with a small, 1/4 inch fizzy head, and no lacing.

Smells moderately sour, with notes of lemon and hibiscus.

This one takes a nice middle road between sour and sweet, with a good but not annoying level of hibiscus. There's a little bit of lemon and cherry flavors, with a mild amount of vinegar.

The sourness on it doesn't linger very much. There's a medium amount of carbonation, with an almost soda-like mouthfeel, and a light body.

Another excellent beer from Singlecut, my first sour from them.

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.
