Gold color. Bright, toasty aromas and flavors of buttered toast, grapefruit marmalade, and lemon sorbet with a supple, vibrant, sourish medium body and a graceful, intriguing, medium-length finish with elements of toasted nuts and grains, quince, and pickled melon rind finish. A fun toasty gose with mild sourness and subtle grapefruit notes.

Gose

Gose is pale yellow to deep gold in color and ranges in alcohol from 4-5%. Originally a specialty of Leipzig, Germany, this ancient style has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Brewed with at least half malted wheat, this unfiltered beer is characterized by a unique flavor profile that features a combination of coriander and a defining lactic sourness and strong salinity. Similar to Berliner Weisse, Gose is sometimes served with woodruff or raspberry syrup to help balance it’s acidity and tartness. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Bahnhof Leipziger Gose, Samuel Adams Verloren Gose and Off Color Brewing Troublesome.
