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.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery "SeaQuench Ale"
12 fl. oz. can, "CANNED ON 03/14/18 11:34"
$2.29 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: This is not my first SeaQuench Ale, I had one a while back while walking around on a hot sunny day. It really did the trick. Anyway, it's poured a hazy golden body beneath a two-finger thick head of big bubbled white foam. Unfortunately it seems to be dying away already. The aroma is unusual, salty I guess, perhaps a little briny. There's supposedly a lot of lime in here but I don't really get that, in fact, the malt is coming through more clearly than that. Let's see how much comes through in the flavor... well first I'm finding the salt, lots of it. The malt balances it though, straightforward golden-grainy, and lightly sweet. Then the lime starts to come out, and even more at the swallow. It's interestingly salty, acidic, and lightly sweet at the same time. I do wish it had some more lime in the aroma though. In the mouth it's medium bodied, perhaps surprisingly so as you might think it would be lighter as a "quench"-ing ale; and it's crisp but not as crisp as it was to begin with, which is odd because it does have some body to hold that carbonation in. Overall it's one of the better tart & salty beers I've tried. With a better aroma and a little more carbonation it could be a real winner.

The beer pour a semi cloudy golden yellow. the head is white with excellent retention and decent lacing. The carbonation is phenomenal. It looks extremely inviting and tempting.
The nose is of sour lime, a slight honey note, and some wheat.
Lots of lime in the taste and a bit salty. Interesting to say the least. A little one dimensional but its very refreshing.
Clean, crisp, and very bubbly. Great carbonation.

Poured from a 19.2 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned on" date 10-24-17.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, golden color with less than one-finger white head that quickly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, very little lacing on the glass, highly carbonated.

SMELL: sweet sugar, bread and lime tartness,

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet and very tart, makes me pucker, then bread, lime citrus and salt, the salt is not overdone but it's there.

PALATE: light body and highly carbonated and crisp.

OVERALL: this is a fun beer, I enjoyed it , would be perfect for a day at the beach/pool or on the Fourth of July, I would recommend to anyone who likes to enjoy beer in the summer.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Drinks like heaven— hard-hitting acidity from the lime with a salty finish. It tastes like the beach, or like what anyone whoever ordered a lime with their Corona wished they were actually drinking. The three-beer combination process makes for a smooth sour that is probably earned my beer-of-the-summer this year.

Simple lime forward gose with a very odd almost coconut water aftertaste. Not unpleasant but unique and maybe not intentional.
