Hey Bartender: Saturn
New Image Brewing
A Note on This Beer
Move over, Mai Tai. Make some room, Bahama Mama! There’s a new tiki cocktail in town that’s sure to impress everyone at your next (socially distanced) soirée.
The Saturn is a tropical tiki drink made with passionfruit, orgeat, falernum, lemon juice, and gin.
Unfortunately, enjoying this beverage from the comfort of home requires buying all the ingredients, mixing and muddling them yourself, and peeling your own lemon twists for garnish. Yeesh!
Luckily, New Image has done all the work for you in their newest Sour Ale, Hey Bartender: Saturn. With some uniquely groovy additions rarely seen in a Sour, they developed a brew worthy of a date night in the tropics.
Their talented mixologists blended fresh passionfruit and lemon purée with almond flour, juniper, orange flower, clove, and orange peel. The juniper gives it a hint of fresh pine, like the original gin-based beverage, while the cloves and orange peel add a warm and inviting autumnal spice.
Sipping this bright, juicy, expertly-balanced Sour is certainly easier than making the cocktail, and it still comes laced with a boozy 8.75% ABV.
So, the next time you’re in the mood for a classy tropical drink, pour one of these into a chilled glass and sip it pinky-up — just don’t forget the lemon wedge!

Had an infected sour taste. The acidity overpowered any flavor profile.
Above average. Wouldn't buy again but for sure won't let it go to waste.
Definitely a beer cocktail. Lots going on here. Fruity beerish beverage. Drinkable.
Pretty good for the abv, and pretty sour, but nothing special.
Very strong cocktail flavor, almost unnatural taste
LEMON REQUIRED!! Juniper, Lemon Gin style sour.
Not bad at all idk what y’all talking about
Fine. Intriguing. Just too much to be consumed regularly. More seasonal
Floral, sour, and citrusy. Might taste orange, but other flavors come through. Definitely interesting flavor over all.
Was not a fan, didn't really get much other than the flavor of regular beer. That's probably just me but
Was expecting more spice from the clove and more almond flavor from the orgeat. Nice tang to it.
Yeah it’s fruity with a hit of juniper which I get isn’t everyone’s cup of beer but I love it
Interesting!! Flavors that I can’t pinpoint
Tasted kinda gross to be honest, kinda rotted sour fruit taste. Hate to hate but it is what it is
Kind of like a really rough sour met a heffeweissen. After taste was specifically a banana daquiri with nutmeg
Some sips have a low key orange peel taste but most of the time it's this very bitter sour taste you're gonna be getting on the front end . Probably would pass on this if it came back but not too bad
Don’t forget the lemon juice!
Im disappointed by other people’s opinions! This was probably the most complex tasting sour I’ve ever had, lots of floral hints for me. edit: I’ve never smelt/tasted juniper so that may be what makes this taste so complex to me, either way I loved It.
Tasty, but I wish I tasted the almond a little more!
Would not buy this again. Very strange brew
Tastes like a margarita mix, like a lime punch. The can says to add lemon juice and that's a very good idea. I liked the drink overall, but it didn't really taste like a beer lol
A bit too tangy for my taste, it tasted more of a mixed drink with way too much sour mix vs a beer.
