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.

Great start and finish especially if you like lime taste. Sea salt can be strong after a few. Great with food, recommendations are seafood and chili.

Got this by accident and really liked it. Salty finish as others mentioned.

Pale yellow and slightly cloudy, quickly dissipating head. Smells of lime and has a tartness to it. Taste is similar in that it is heavy on lime, but has more of a malt presence to balance out the tartness. Is sour upfront with a little saltiness in the end. Crisp and refreshing, this is my go-to summer beer.

Very nice Gose. Drank this one straight from the can. The aroma is exactly what you would expect: line, lime, and more lime. The first sip kicked me right in the tonsils: sour, tart, and salty. Not getting a lot of the coriander, but the lime and salt are refreshing and tasty enough together. Liked it well enough to follow up with another right after.

I’ve tried several Gose varieties and have never liked any of them. Got this one at a music festival not knowing it was a “sour”/Gose. I really liked it. The combo of the kolsch and Berlinerweisse. The lime also takes out a lot of the tartness bite. Top notch and I’ll drink this again.

LOOK: Opaque pretty Orange-Amber color with Gold hues. Thin rim of bubbles with no head or lacing. 3.5

SMELL: Bright zesty lime with slight saltiness. Pleasant but simple. 3.75

TASTE: Super bright zesty lime and lemon front settles into peachy, orange, lime finish that is clean and bright unlike beery flatness of Odd13 Duraznodor I had yesterday. Clean though pithy zestiness lingers somewhat unpleasantly. 4.0

FEEL: Tingling on palate is intense and beginning and continues into finish. Acidity pinches back of jaw. 4.0

OVERALL: Easy drinking, flavorful, but chugable Gose that other than the unpleasant lingering zesty tannin is exactly what I am looking for in a Gose. Fuller and more intense in flavor than the El Gose by Avery. 4.0

Pours a pale hazy yellow. Head quickly dissipates to nothing. Lacing almost non existent. Has the smell of limes. Slightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Has a pronounced lime sourness and a very mild malt sweetness. Very faintly hopped. And a dry finish. This is not my favorite style, but it is good for what it is and drinkable. When it has its sourness advertised all over the packaging. It what is expected.

Draft.

Mildly hazy yellow-orange appearance. Medium foam head upon pour. Lemony, wheat. Tartness is also there. But mostly refreshing and easy drinking for a hot summer day.
