Gose style beers are like a Berliner Weisse’s slightly more sarcastic cousin who always has a downright salty look on their face. But, hey, some people just have resting unpleasant face; this doesn’t mean they aren’t awesome. We’ve put together this sampler for you. And so it gose.
Off Color Brewing / Troublesome (355 mL, 4.3 % ABV) Here comes trouble! This beer perfectly blends together an uninteresting wheat beer and an overly acidic/funky beer that is then fermented with lactobacillus. The concoction is then blended with coriander and salt to create a mildly lemon tart brew that leaves a full, tart sensation in your mouth.
Evil Twin / Mission Gose (650 mL, 4.0 % ABV) If you’re on a mission to find a gose, think of this beer as mission accomplished. A new-age take on this old-fashioned style is tart, salty and incredibly refreshing...it gose well with anything. If you know what I mean.
Anderson Valley / Briney Melon Gose (355 mL, 4.2 % ABV) Just like Frankenstein, this beer was born from a passion of experimentation. While a lot less dangerous, this gose possesses a thirst-quenching tartness that features watermelon flavors and that sweet, give-me-summer vibe. The subtle addition of sea salt leaves you with a fruity sweetness and dry finish that will have you wanting more and more.
