Notes / Commercial Description:
SeaQuench Ale is our session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt. It’s a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one. We begin by brewing a straightforward Kolsch with lots of wheat and Munich Malt, then we brew a salty Gose with black limes, coriander and our sea salt. We follow it all up with a citrusy-tart Berlinerweiss made with lime juice and lime peel. All three beers are then blended together in the fermentation tank to create this German hybrid.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a faint amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left swirls of bubbles on the surface after it died down and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of limes are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is a little sour, having flavors of lime juice and hints of yogurt from the lactobacillus as well as bits of saltiness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and a little creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is also a faint amount of tartness.
O: This beer goes down very easily and can be considered sessionable. I liked the lime and yogurt flavors.

Great balance of sour and salt for multiple rounds. Session IPAs are somewhat tiring.

Yellow with short head and persistent lacing. Tart, salty smell of lime. There's a sourness present from the first instant that fades to reveal a decidedly lime-forward flavor with coriander, and a wheaty end.

Drank from the can, but still enjoyed. Fruity smell with like coming through as suspected. Very refreshing mouth feel due to the carbonation. Taste has that nice sour picker with lime coming through and tightening those jaws slightly. A very refreshing beer, even in November.

Look- hazy golden color.
Smell- clean with hints of lime.
Taste- sour but really refreshing. Lime is the dominant flavor but it’s easier to drink than I thought. Great beer for a hot summer day!
Mouth feel- light.

Look: Hazy yellow with a finger of lacing that dissipates quickly.

Smell: Sour lime smell with a hint of malt

Taste: Sour lime tartness with salty undertones. Extremely smooth and easy to drink.

Feel: Nice carbonation that goes down smooth

Overall: The tartness of this beer is extremely refreshing and the salt works really well. It's very good on its own and I'm sure with spicy food or seafood it would be even better. Get this beer if you love sour things like I do.

Can from Market of Choice.

A clear yellow with an off-white head that falls off rapidly leaving no lacing, this looks solid. The nose has a nice blend of raw wheat, lime, preserved lime, a little yogurt and a little brine. The palate opens salty and tart, with a blend of lemon, the mildly fermented flavor of black limes and salt. The salt is slightly overdone here, but does detract too much. Light in body with high but fine carbonation, this beer finishes tart and clean, with the salt getting in the way of the lime flavor. There's also not a whole lot in terms of grainy/wheat notes here - this is mostly dominated by citrus and salt. There's also not a whole lot of depth to the lactic flavors here; they seem a little underdeveloped. Still, this is a solid beer.

Appearance - Hazy yellow appearance with a quick clearing head.

Smell - A nice mix of sweet sour lime and salt.

Taste - The lime comes at you right out of the gate but the salt is quick to follow. Interesting when the salt connects you can taste other citrus, something similar to tangerine maybe.

Mouthfeel - Crisp and tart, very much like soda water.

Overall - Good beer, I really didn't expect this. It is cool today but after doing a lot of yardwork I was thirsty and thought why not, this is a great refreshing beer.
