SAMMY SAY’S…

Very often, the word cloudy, especially on a summer’s day, can ruin one’s plans. Dance Like Everyone Is Watching is very cloudy. Quite clearly, it’s cloudiness is very different to the one that we experience in the sky. But what we have to establish, is whether or not it brings the same, aforementioned, feeling.

From the very first sip, it is plain to see that this beer can only bring joy. Drinking it is like the clouds lifting and feeling the heat shining on your face. It has fantastic sharp grapefruit flavours, which leave a pine like trail in your mouth.
However, it’s the mouthfeel that is out of this world and glues everything that is good about this beer together. It’s so smooth; it’s a triumph. There’s also bags of body, it’s almost like drinking a thick shake. And I mean that in a good way. I find Dance Like Everyone Is Watching a real pleasure to drink. All the way from the aroma through to the taste, then the swallowing and finishing with the aftertaste. It leaves the mouth feeling very cleansed and wanting more.
This is one cloudy experience that anyone should enjoy on a hot summer’s day!

JYMI SAY’S…

Ok, let’s start with the negatives. Well, there are none.

On to the positives then..

This beer is SENSATIONAL!!

The joyous journey begins with the visual. The almost pearl like can design coupled with the look of this beer in the glass are just an absolute treat for the eyes. The tin itself though not necessarily the greatest design gives off this ‘you just know I’m going to be a refreshing crushable beer don’t you’ vibe and without doubt draws the the drinker to the well with eyes wide open.

On cracking this can the info on low carbonation becomes a reality as your first thought may well be ‘oh, my #DLEIW is flat’ because the is no pssst. But once you remember that this is a deliberately under carbonated brew then calmness can return.

The nose that comes off of Dance Like Everyone is Watching may not be for everyone but is certainly for MOBJymi. It’s one of pure Grapefruit juice and reminds me of holiday hotel breakfast times!! Again not nessesserarilly for everybody!

Now taste and texture wise we are talking high high end here… The low carbonation is an absolute masterstroke from Cloudwater as it gives the flavour room for being the best it can possibly be and I can confirm that it is an absolute belter!! It’s crazy intense upfront which my lead the odd drinker into a mild panic but it soon mellows out into a meandering wander of delight. The brewer mentions below it’s ever so clever logo that this beer is punchy and juicy… and it is. AND IT’S FANTASTIC. AND YOU BETTER GO FIND ONE.
