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.

Appearance – One finger head on a deep yellow hazy body with lots of floaters and sediment.

Aroma – Sour citrus and lime peel.

Taste – Sour and light citrus, tending toward lime but a little broader.

Mouthfeel – Mouth puckering yet smooth and very thirst quenching.

Overall – Very good beer, great for sessioning on a hot summer day.

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 9/29/17; into a pint glass.
Appearance- straw yellow, slightly hazy, with lots of bubbles; thin white head that fades quickly. Lacing is minimal.
Smell- lots of lime tartness and lemon sweetness.
Taste - mimics the nose with the citrus tart and sweet candy.
Feel - again, tart and sweet with a nice carbonated mouthfeel.
Overall- this actually surprised me...kind of like it. I’d like to find a fresher batch of this.

SeaQuench has a thick, creamy, white head, a hazy, bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, with some glass lacing. Aroma is of sea salt, the sea, pale malt, spices, and citrus. Taste is the same, with some yeast and paper. Mouthfeel is medium, and SeaQuench finishes dry. If you like original Gatorade, you should like this. I do not, so I don't.

Who doesn't enjoy unexpectedly inhaling a 12ft wave while derping through a seemingly safe surf at high tide? Dying to relive that special, suffocating moment, but from a distance? Well here ya go.

12oz single from New Beer Distributors. DFH rounded pint glass.

Murky, pale amber brew. Plenty of triggering, seafoam-like head.

Lime, salt, dusty wheat, it's all there. Black, green, indigo, all the same to my snout.

Taste is tangy, like tart limeade with a slight honey-ed, tannic edge. Thick & itchy feel. The salt comes through more as it warms, so I'd chug & avoid that if you're looking to prevent any additional traumatic family beach day triggers.

Enjoy!

If you like sours, this is great. Goes down smooth. Super citrus-y, but not overpowering. Limey, but has aromas of sweeter fruits like raspberry to me.
