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.

Pours orange w/ some pink hues I suppose but has a quickly fading head & no lacing at all. The aroma provides just a bit of sourness but not much else. The flavor is sour upfront but fades into nearly a clean finish. Itís light w/ a solid flavor profile for 4% & fairly drinkable for the style. Decent offering!

I love a tasty, refreshing gose, and when I saw this on the shelf I knew I had to have it. Cracking the cap releases a fresh fruity and slightly spicy aroma. A little bit of a pop hits my jaw as the scent rises with the pour. I fill the glass, the brew a rosy tangerine in hue. The foam is frosty white, the bubbles seemingly teem with life. - The aroma is fruity and full of spice, and my first pull at the rim of the glass brings it all together. The coriander and tartness of the hibiscus are predominant, and intensifies with my exhale. The sharp reaction under my tongue is exciting, and my mouth waters with anticipation with every sip. A bit of lemon graces the flavor, and enhances, rather than overpowering. - The combination of aroma, flavor, the soury goodness in the taste and a dry, clean finish are delightful and thirty quenching. Iím looking forward to getting back to the beer store to find a full six pack for my warm spring evenings!

Pours a golden orange with fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, coriander, and a touch of funk. Saline to start with, then coriander notes and finishes with some tart.

It pours a light cooper with a white head. It has flowery aromas, and plenty of floral elements. It has flavors of floral hops, lemon, hibiscus, biscuit, tart and fruity esters. It is light on the palate with a dry finish.

Pours a pinkish orange color. About one finger white head. Almost no retention, little to no lacing. Interesting to me though, it has lots of floaties in there, including what Iím guessing, is some hibiscus stamens. Itís very well carbonated.

Aroma is floral and citrusy. I also smell wheat, and salt. Lots of salt. Smells good.

The first taste is salty, Iím a little surprised. Itís also tart, like cranberry tart. I also taste yeast. Iím not really tasting any coriander. It is rather tasty.

Mouthfeel is light. Leavs s salty sour taste on the tongue. Briney taste perhaps. Refreshing, highly drinkable and sessioinable.

Overall, I think itís terrific. Perhaps the best Iíve ever had from Boulevard. Iím really loving the salty taste. Well done. I absolutely recommend it, and I will absolutely buy it again.

reggiedunlop (3624) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2016
Pours a clear rose color with a white/light pink head. Aroma is tart and fruity...almost a mild cranberry like nose...saltiness is notable. Flavor has a nice lemony tartness...nice salinity...a bit if that cranberry like fruitiness...really nice. Mouthfeel is light and silky with that briney feel and a dry tart finish that lingers with salinity. Awesome.

Itís got that pink tint for an amber beer. Itís got that big white foamy head. Itís got that that sweet, soggy,cracker aroma and flavor. And it finishes tart and dry.
