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.

Tastes of wheat up front with a peppery undertone, quickly followed by a strongly tart and slightly sour lime flavor. Smells of lime and lemongrass, feels a bit syrupy in the mouth from all of the tartness, although it manages to be pretty dry.

Overall I think it's like a more lime-forward bud light lime that is brewed with more attention to detail. A tad too tart for me, and not my favorite, but worth a taste for sure.

Tastes like a Bud Light lime. And that’s not what I was going for. Take the sour out of the name and it won’t be so disappointing.

$2.99 for a 19.2 oz can. "SeaQuench Ale is a session sour mash-up of a crisp Kolsch, a salty Gose, and a tart Berliner Weiss brewed in sequence with black limes, sour lime juice and sea salt "
10 IBU, 4.9% ABV.

Pours out to a slightly hazy very pale straw golden, forming a voluminous bone white head with very good retention and lacing in part due to it's brisk carbonation, about 3.5 carbs or so, I'm guessing. The nose is of dusty basement, minerals, dry hay and lime. Mouthfeel is moderately tart, finishing quite dry with a light, selztery body. Taste is a recap of the aroma. Nice lime bite and tartness, very dry, very low bitterness, essentially no malt flavor, hay and dusty basement.

This is an interesting beer, but honestly, it's too tart for my stomach to handle more than one. I get more enjoyment putting a few limes in a beer that isn't so dry, so tart, and has more malt complexity. Worth a try but I won't be buying more.

Pours a hazy dark straw with white head. Next to no retention or lace.
Smells like limes and wheat malt
Pleasantly tart, rounded lime flavor and a bit of wheaty sweetness
Full, but not heavy mouthfeel, low carbonation
Pretty decent summer drinker

I will start by saying tha5 I am not a fan of sours. I’ve tried many expensive flemish style sours. The Sea Quench is the only sour that I will buy a case of. It’s made from lime juice, peel, black limes and sea salt. It’s best served very cold and perfect on a hot summer day. Like it’s name, it’s great when you are thirsty and it packs some flavor. Enjoy!
