Minutely hazy sunburst color. Aromas of lemon cream scented candle, berry scone, and oatmeal with orange zest with a supple, sweet-and-sour medium body and a smooth, breezy rye cracker, citrus and cucumber water, and raspberry-kiwi tart finish. A snappy, crowd-pleasing gose with pleasant fruitiness.

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.
