Abnormal Pink Lemonade

Brewery: Abnormal Beer Company
Country: USA
ABV: 5.8%
Style: American Pale Wheat Ale
Other Notes: Fruited Wheat Ale. Adjuncts – Lemon zest and raspberry

Brewer Description: (from can) The name says it all! This beer tastes just like the iconic summer thirst quencher. We take our base wheat ale and add an abundance of fresh lemon zest, and red raspberry puree. The result is a well balanced, sweet and slightly tart, pink beverage that is so close to the real thing you may not go back. This beer will be released throughout the summer and then again in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of the proceeds will go towards Beer 4 Boobs, a fantastic organization supporting breast cancer research, treatment, and prevention.

Intro: A 1 pint can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very lightly hazy orange pinkish red colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Like fruited tea. Sweet-ish, tea, raspberry and lemon zest.
Taste: Lightly sweet, floral tea, raspberry and lemon zest.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Loved the aroma which was completely my thing. However the taste seemed to be something else as I felt that it was way too floral. It’s also missing some tartness which I think would have balanced it better.
