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.

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.

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.

$5 for a 16 ounce pour at St. Gambrinus during Happy Hour. Actually the wife ordered it but I commandeered most of it.

It looked hazy and pinkish to me. Probably more orange that pink but pink nonetheless. The bubbles from the carbonation ran the length of the pint glass. Not much of a head.

The taste was sour, apple juice, something else tart maybe lemon zest. A touch buttery with a fruity finish. Very highly carbonated but drinkable for the summer. I didn't really find the hibiscus flower in this.

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.

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.

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.
