http://www.dogfish.com/brewery/beer/seaquench-ale 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. Working alongside the National Aquarium out of Baltimore, Maryland, we've replicated sea salt sourced from both Maine and the Chesapeake Bay to give SeaQuench Ale its mildly salty characteristic.  And, releasing just in time for the 500th anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot - aka the “German Beer Purity Law” that says it’s illegal to brew with anything other than water, barley, and hops - SeaQuench Ale both commemorates (and disintegrates) this art-censorship law. The release of SeaQuench Ale kicks off a new partnership between Dogfish Head and the National Aquarium that will focus on inspiring conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. Dogfish Head’s philanthropic contributions will help the Aquarium generate important conservation impact for a healthy Chesapeake Bay. The National Aquarium logo can be found on the SeaQuench Ale label and Dogfish’s brewed ales and handcrafted spirits will be showcased in the Aquarium’s café year-round and offered at select Aquarium events.

    Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with nice white head that fades quickly leaving little lace. The aroma is lime,salt and malt, with touch of thyme. The taste is tart,, lime and salt. The mouthfeel is light bodied, refreshing and nicely carbonated

    Pours clear golden with a thick, though not long-lasting, snow-white head. Aroma delivers notes of lime, salt, coriander and fresh malt. Flavor presents tart and sweet lime, salt, fresh malt, and coriander for a distinctive and refreshing brew. Mouthfeel offers fair body and fizz. Perfect for a sweltering summer day - of which there are going to be a lot more, what with global warming.

    This is a gose-like sour. Salty, limey...reminds me of a beergarita. A light sour so not quite over the top. Medium to darker cloudy yellow appearance. Would pair good with Mexican food. Think I am going to look for this again closer to the summer.

    Sam Calagione has given us off centered brews, and in this there is no disappointment. A murky dirty-yellow, brownish tinged beer with no head and no lacing. There is a fruity sourness in the nose. And it is the lime that gives it that sourness as it is upfront in the tasting. Well balanced, though with a citric-earthy hoppiness. As it is advertised it holds back on the tasting.
