Salted Watermelon Sour

Category: Gose

Date Tasted:
Country: Canada

Clear light gold color. Attractive aromas and flavors of pickled melon rind, lemon herb scone, and dandelion and greens with a supple, lively, effervescent, sourish medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, long sourdough and pretzel bread toast, salted limes and celery, and malt vinegar kettle chips finish. A toothsome, salty sour berry with great balance and nice nuances of flavor.

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.
