Minutely hazy dull gold color. Woody, floral, complex aromas and flavors of pine blossom, singed orange peel, toasty herb peppercorn muffin, and lavender and verbena with a satiny, tangy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, distinctive, long orange spice cake, citrus juice and granita, pretzel bread pudding, and hints of coriander and cardamom finish. A great gulpable gose brimming with attractive citrus and herbal flavors within fine salty frame.

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.
