What You Need to Know

The SeaQuench Ale is a hybrid between a trio of German-style brews. Dogfish Head brewers begin with a Kölsch and then add elements from a Berliner Weisse and Gose (have a look at the video below for more on that). The result is a citrusy-tart and refreshing brew. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.


The ale pours a cloudy straw color with a thick head of white foam that offers modest retention.
