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.

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: Overly sour... good flavors, but overwhelmed by the pucker. Lemon and hibiscus... under-ripened/green fruit. Mild funk. Definitely gets the salivary glands going. Light in body and more carbonation than expected.

O: Smells great but a good bit too sour to be easily drinkable. Solid flavor but over the top. Not one I'd pick up again.

Nice, pale gold, mostly clear beer with a white head that leaves quickly and leaves no trace of lacing behind. The aroma is light with floral notes and a nice tart and funky smell. The taste is sour, flowery with a fruitiness that is reminiscent of cranberry. Nice light beer that is fruity and tart.

Bought this at the SingleCut Brewery a while back and finally had a chance to sit down and sip it tonight. It's a bit cool out for this but regardless, this was a fun beer that was quite different from the northeast-style IPA's that I've become accustomed to from them recently.

Loved the pour to this as the beer had a grapefruit hue, frothy head, and a murky, dank look to it unlike anything I've had in a long time...if ever. Strong tartness, hibiscus, and SingleCut's house yeast were in the nose with all of those being in the taste as well. More of a burn from the black currant than anything I could discern on my tongue while there wasn't any booze to be seen or felt. Some grapefruit and lemon could be felt here as this was quite citric and tart with a nice, juicy mouthfeel to this. Quite thin, carbonated enough, and addicting, I enjoyed this for what it was even though the heat of the summer is no longer part of this year.

Though I only bought one bottle, it would be easy to have another once this was polished off. While not even close to their best offering, I give them props for going outside of the box and taking a stab at this style. It's not good enough to win anyone over but feeling the burn in the aftertaste and seeing how easily this went down served as proof that I'd have it again, even if it was just to remind me of warmer days ahead!
