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.

HuskerTan (563) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. A- Cheese, coriander. A- Light peach color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Sour, tart, slightly sweet, slightly salty, subtle spice, citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, tart finish. O- This was surprising. Quite sour and a unique cheese from a can aroma. At first I didnít think I liked this but the more I drank of it, I decided it was refreshing. Would be a very good hot day or warm weather beer, not a below 0 temp beer. WIsh this was a summer release instead.

Onionkid (370) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle. The aroma is salty and floral. The taste has such a weird mixture of sourness and saltiness. Iím a fan of the sour aspect, but the salt is throwing me off. This is a very interesting beer, regardless. I guess Iíd say itís solid, but it may not be for me. 4.2% alcohol.

I drank 6 of these wild and crazy guys. they taste like a sour goose but its just a gose. Its almost as if there is hibiscus in it. tart floral beer, but its not beer, itís just water and yeast and malt and hops. Did i mention i drank 6 of them? BEAT THAT!

While Iím not a big fan of the idea of sour beers, I have to admit that this is delicious and would be completely refreshing on a hot summer day.

Bought one 12oz and realized later I shouldíve purchased a case as this shit was pretty much one of the best Goseís I had all year (not true to style). Bountiful elements of salt and coriander blending PERFECTLY with the addition of the hibiscus. I will by a case of this if I ever see if again.

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Murky rich pink pour with a smaller white ring head. Raspberry, flowers, coriander, and salt. Some sweet-sour going on here. Easy drinking and lively on the tongue. This is really nice.

Prufrockstar (1128) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2014
12 oz bottle, thanks to bytemesis. Pours clear pink-tinged amber with pink head that dissipates almost immediately. Aroma: lemon zest; floral; sweet tarts; grapefruit?; yogurt, light pepper. Taste: very slightly salty; moderately sweet with a moderately puckering finish. Toasted wheat lingers. Palate: Light body, average carbonation, slick texture. Overall: Delightful.

Pours a fizzy people pink with a short white head. It has a nice aroma of hibiscus, coriander, and some funk. The flavor is tart fruit and salt with a slightly floral, tart finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
