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.

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.

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.
