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.

Sample tasting at Hackneyís Printers Row. Light bodied, fruity, light pink from the hibiscus. Very little salt. Tastes of very light malt, floral, not a whole lot else. Simple and one dimensional but hits the spot.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy and cloudy orange color with a pinkish hue and topped by a small head of off white foam that quickly settles to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of tart citrus, lemon peel, minerals, grains, salt, and some floral hibiscus. The flavor stays with the same theme with the tart citrus fruit, lemon, and grains up front followed by salt, minerals, and a light floral note from the hibiscus. Light in body with moderate carbonation that is easy drinking and leads to a slightly salty and tart finish. Really nice and easy drinking gose with an interesting addition from the hibiscus.

Bottle pours orange-pink with a softly pink, quickly disappearing head. Lightly tart and salty over floral, fruity sweetness. Not what Iíd want to drink every day but quite nice.

GABF 2015. Pink color. Not a lot in the flavor, but aroma has hibiscus. Very lightly sour, some salt. A light and airy beer, it is decent if on the light side. The hibiscus is very light.

This is a nice gose that is not too sour or salty. Itís pinkish orange in color w/ a thin white head. Itís got a very nice yogurty, slightly fruity smell too it and is slightly sweet w/ just a bit of tartness. This is full bodied w/ slightly spritzy carbonation and finishes w/ some lingering sweetness and some mineral notes.

Bottle: The aroma consists of lightly tart lemon, light hibiscus, and a hint of minerals. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze. It has a one finger white head that settles to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate tart lemon. There is some light wheat in the background. The finish has light salt, hibiscus, and a touch of minerals. Itís light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

dmac (4965) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2015
12oz bottle from Dean, thanks piney. Poured a clear rusty orange, sorry Boukevard pink is too far if a stretch on this one, with a smaller foamy dissipating white head. Aroma/flavor of sour lemons, grains, flowers, dough, acidic citrus meat and a touch of salt. Medium to fuller body with a slicker sick feeling. Great beer all around.

Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Aroma is slightly funky with a hint of hibiscus flowers. Pours a orange-pink hue with a rapidly dissipating head and no lacing. The taste follows the nose - a funky sour with floral notes. Medium carbonation and light body. Overall, a very enjoyable Gose variation.

GTAEgeek (1588) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Clear, dark orange color, with a thin, gray head that fades quickly. The nose is grapefruit, light salt, lemon, syrup, and some good floral notes. Sweet and syrupy, with a nice, citrusy acidity and tartness. Light to medium body, harsh, acidic, and clingy. This is a nice, smooth, and flavorful beer. Heavy acidity, but a balanced flavor and lovely aroma.
