COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of an unusual, yet resurgent, beer style. It pays tribute to the pleasantly sour, slightly salty wheat beers that originated in Goslar and became popular in Leipzig, Germany around the late 1800ís. A great introductory sour beer, Hibiscus Gose receives coriander and sea salt during boiling, then we steep dried hibiscus flowers at the end to create a vibrant pink hue (really, though, itís pink!). The result is a tangy, sweet and sour ale with a refreshing citrus character.

Clear orange-pink colored body, not much of a head or lacing. Light hibiscus flowers, lactic lemon, and some coriander. Doesnít really pop with sea salt goodness. Light bodied, mild sweetness, moderate carbonation but finishes a tad flat.

Pours light copper-blush with a foamy one finger white head which quickly fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits, wheat, sea salts, hibiscus, and some light coriander. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi sour, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty gose that is unique, drinkable and refreshing.

574deadzone (1208) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy blush color with a thin eggshell head that barely laces. Nose involves floral notes, strawberry, light salt, light wine vinegar, and some melon. Lightly sweet, decently tart, fairly salty, with a pinch of bitterness. Light bodied, spritzy, somewhat oily, with a floral and fruity tart and salty finish. Refreshing and unique. Can it.

Light copper beer with a distinct pinkish hew and a medium fizzy bright white head that disappears quickly. Flowery sweet nose with some soap, a bit of musky hops, and a slight sourness. Flavor starts out crisp and sour and then develops into something unusual, such as unsweetened green tea, mirin, and salt. Light bodied with soft carbonation, this is really easy to drink. Interesting beer in a style thatís new to me.

yngwie (15377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle, at The Corner Foodery, Philadelphia. Itís lighlty unclear in the glass, reddish orange in color and with a minimal sized white head on top. Thereís a weak touch of lemon in the aroma, with hints of flowers. Itís tart and medium bodied, rather soft and with a nice and low level of carbonation. The flavor is more pronounced than the aroma, with some lime and salt notes. Lasting finish. Quite quenching this one, but Iím not super impressed in any way, and hibiscus... well, not my cup of tea. 150622

ABC Destin growler enjoyed watching Le Tour. Pours out like a rose champagne with a white head that dissolves quickly. Aroma is dusty malt with a hint sweet strawberries. Wow big sour punch at first taste that quickly disappears and finishes with a hint of salt water. Okay but really thin.

Cybercat (4028) - Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Pours clear, bubbly amber with a thick though effervescent eggshell head. Strong aroma has fruity, yeasty and floral notes. Strong, fruity flavor has a firm but not make-your-face-do-yoga sour tone, and lets the floral, pear and malty notes take up their fair share of the palate. Mouthfeel has decent body but lacks fizz. Pick this flower and enjoy.

7/11/15. Growler from Craft on Draft. A little disappointed in this one, sadly. Growing on me slightly as I go through the glass. Crystal clear brownish pink color with a small khaki head that mostly sizzles away, a mild ring, very mild lacing, if any. Lightly tart aroma, doughy, Pilsner-like, soft wheat, very light salt and spice. Disappointing flavor, but not completely miserable. Light tartness, doughy, mild salt, floral, bitter. Itís sort of hard to explain, but something just doesnít seem right to me. Iím wanting more sour, less bitter, less weirdness. Hmph. Slick yet dry. Weird. Meh,
