Boneshire is about as much of a second home brewery as one comes for a person. I’m there as often as I can, and its an absolutely wonderful atmosphere that is very reminiscent of Cheers, wherein pretty much if you go once or twice, your name is remembered and everyone will know you.
So its only about time I finally get around to reviewing one of their newest offerings (as well as talking about the place a little bit). And this is certainly a fantastic beer to start off with.
Beer Name: Sunburst
Brewery: Boneshire Brew Works
Beer Style: Fruit Beer
Fruits Used: Tangerine and Grapefruit
Untappd Write-Up: We teamed up with Sara Bozich to bring you the perfect summer crusher! Sunburst is brewed with a healthy dose of Tangerine and Grapefruit and is slightly tart.
So let’s dive into this one, it is tart, but not unpleasantly so, and not “lemon-head” sour. It has a nice summer lemonade style tartness to it that goes perfectly with its low ABV to make it a nice sessionable summer beer.
The aroma is very citrusy, it has great notes of the grapefruit and tangerine with hints of other citrusy fruits like lemon/lime.
The color is a nice light straw, a bit hazy in appearance but also a fair bit transparent. It looks similar to a child’s juice drink of orange or tangerine or nectarine or something similar in that fashion, but not crazily hazy or pulpy.
It’s a perfect summer, grilling, poolside, beachside, easy going, relaxing, only 3.5% ABV beer. A crowler of this and barely an impact on you – other than a good time. This is just a wonderfully delight beer that reminds you of being a kid and enjoying a Capri Sun outside in the sun in the summer, maybe catching fireflies or lighting up a bonfire or grilling. Its refreshing, crisp, tangy, tart, wonderfully clean, and completely delicious.
It was the perfect beer to have after a long day at Hershey Park with my three daughters and while relaxing there at the brewery chatting with a friend and fellow beer enthusiast (thanks for the trade Josh!) while playing a game of CandyLand.
Could drink this all day.
