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.

Welcome to the start of my Happy CAN A New Singlecut Be All The Beer That It Takes To Make Me Happy On A Sunday (Week 724)?!? It is to be a CANcerted effort to drink, review and rate some beers in the furtherance of The CANQuest (tm) while also taking part in NBS. As always, thoughts & opinions expressed are not necessarily my own. Stamp help out!

From the CAN: "Rulpsen says: 'Come visit our brewery!"; "Brewed with Hibiscus and Black Currants"; "SingleCut Beersmiths is proud to maintain the American tradition of beer locally made from craft by zealots/lunatics who believe hard work, truth, pride and passion should always come before profit."

It was identified as "unfiltered" so I did some in-CAN agitation before CANducting the Crack! I was pleasantly surprised when it briefly formed just over a finger of fizzy, foamy, rocky, pinkish head with low retention. Color was a slightly-hazy light-pink (SRM = N/A). Nose smelled very much of hibiscus & I wish that I could tell you that I like it as an adjunct, but no such luck. Mouthfeel was rather thin & watery. The taste was more tart than sour, but the acidity actually worked to hold the floweriness of the hibiscus in check. No syrup would be needed in/with this one & either/both might act as a detriment. It was light in terms of hibiscus, but high in pucker factor. Finish was quite dry. This would be a great, refreshing beer on a hot, humid Summer's day.

Canned 9/25. Pours a slightly hazy rosé color with about an inch of soft, pale pink head that fades leaving a nice ring of foam around the edge and very minimal lacing. Smells of under-ripe strawberry, a sweet wheat, floral and tart/tangy. Taste is similar but i found it interesting that the sour comes through much stronger on the smallest sips. The hibiscus adds a floral, fruity sweetness that cuts through the sourness. The finish is refreshing and slightly dry, the carbonation is sharp.

Had it on tap at Arts and Crafts Beer Parlor, NYC.
Pours a hazy straw color. Aroma and taste aligned; hibiscus, currants, lemon. Mouth puckeringly sour. Finishes bone dry, leaving you wanting more. Light and refreshing.

Had this on tap at Seymour in Greenfield, MA. The beer had a dark, murky orange-yellow appearance with a thin head that dissipated quickly. The aromas were flowery mixed with dark fruit. The taste followed that nose with a very tart flavor; i could sense raspberries with the flavors. Medium body, good carbonation. Overall, super tart and tasty.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden pink pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Solid lacing.

S: Tart and funky... lemon, hibiscus, and fruit.

T/F: Sour... good flavors and a strong pucker. Lemon and hibiscus... under-ripened/green fruit. Mild funk. Definitely gets the salivary glands going. Something almost soapy. Light in body and more carbonation than expected.

O: Smells great but a bit too sour to be easily drinkable. Solid flavor but over the top. One that grew on me after having it a few different times.
