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.

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.

So, from the dudes at Singlecut, this is "pretty much" a Berliner Weisse, in a kinda sorta way.

Pinkish hue on a golden colored brew. Flavor is superb, and I am not throwing that word around lightly. The level of sour here is so perfectly even-keeled and level, I can't really think of a better way for it to go. Light hibiscus tones don't get obnoxious at all. Drinks beautifully. This is one of the best beers I have had in a very long time. I am a fan of the sours, and I will try a Berliner Weisse anytime, but I feel I am not being biased in saying that this is an extremely good beer, mostly due to its smooth tone and that it's put together evenly, without trying to be obnoxious or over the top.

Glad I went out of my way for this one. +1 redemption point for an otherwise lame and too quick of a trip back to NYC.

From 05/06/14 notes. Had on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. $8 for a 14 oz. pour in a tulip.

a - Pours a hazy, amber-orange color with a pinkish tint, one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sour fruits, funky socks, vinegar, fruity malts, oak, some spice, and sour berries. Nice nose, sour and funky and a lot going on.

t - Tastes of sour tropical fruits, sour fruity malts, citrus, light funky but not as much as the nose, oak, spices, vinegar, sour dark fruits. More sour than the nose but less funky; very good.

m - Medium body and high carbonation. Good mouthfeel for a berliner.

o - Overall a really good berliner; the best beer I've had from SingleCut so far. Nice and sour and funky with a lot going on for a low ABV berliner. Would love to have it again.

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.
