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.

Well, I’m still trying to get used to the idea that good beer comes in cans, but this is more proof. Dogfish has done an elegant job of blending three German styles into a pleasing whole - for me it’s mostly a pleasantly sour Gose. Very pretty pale amber color. Citrus forward nose, with nice notes of bready yeasts (from the kolsch?). The taste begins with a gentle sour edge and rapidly expands into very enjoyable saltiness, palest malts and a kiss of hops. Appropriately crisp feel. Perfect for a sunny summer evening.

Pours a completely cloudy opaque orange color. Thin white head dissipates leaving no residual head.

Aroma has notes of wheat, wheat bread, some hints of grain, a nice lime tartness, and a slight note of salt on the finish. Really a very refreshing aroma.

Taste upfront is lime and citrus, strong tartness giving way to a wheat backbone. Hint of saltiness is present but quite mild.

Bright vibrant carbonation. Slightly puckering tartness up front dissipating slowly through the finish.

Very nice beer from Dogfish Head ... Kind of a Frankenstein of styles, but a very tasty beer.

Barely drinkable. Like drinking limeade with no sugar. The tartness rings throughout. The black lime doesnt work, makes an already over tart sour taste bitter. Pucker up baby!

Had it at the ball game. It was very hot. The beer quenched my thirst. The beer tasted good. I want more.

Pours an opaque bright golden color with a huge white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Smells of salt, malts and lime. Tastes of lime, salt, some sweet malts and some floral elements. Light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated, tart and dry yet very refreshing.

Ok Gose, glad Dogfish Head has a line. Not my go-to Gose (favorite summer beer), but definitely worth a drink if nothing else is available in that style
