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.

Almost salmon colored, with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is berries, though Iím sure itís hibiscus. Taste is boysenberry, with a nice tartness, and very minimal salt into the finish. Not what I was expecting/ dreading. $2.7/12oz

CanIHave4Beers (3539) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, shared by me, in my dining room, just now.
Pours a nice pale golden color, hazy, with a pinkish hue, a nice frothy white head and some decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma has some saltiness & floral notes, itís got a really nice lactic funk, some tart fruit and some mild spice.

The flavor is just lightly sour & nicely lemony with some yougurty lactic character. The hibiscus is mild, but well employed and certainly noticeable adding some floral flavor and bitterness. The beer has a mild sweetness but finishes fairly dry. The saltiness is maybe a little more prevalent than what I usually find in a Gose, but by no means is the beer overly salty.

Refreshing 4 damn sure.
