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.

Bottle. PInk colored pour. Looks like a rose. Aroma is acidic sourness, fruitiness and lactic acid. Flavor is acidic sourness, maybe some unripe peach, some fruity and flowery sweetness, light salt, and a touch of creaminess. Carbonation is fine and tingly. Body is fairly light. Easy to drink well made beer.

Draught at Delirium Village, surprised to find that stuff on tap there.Gooseberry jam all the way, pretty light and enjoyable, some sour cherry notes. Nice one.

This has been my favorite Gose yet... The hibiscus balances out the beer incredibly well and my only issue is that I can not find more.

a little diaper on the nose- otherwise a solid gose, coriander spice and salt, low fruit and acidity. Refreshing. Not great, but solid.

Bottle BEST BY 11/15/16. Nose is tart with a little bit of rancid underneath the lacto, not a great look. Pour is clear golden with a very light pink tinge, approaches the pastel range of certain popular hyacinths. Head is soapy bright white but doesnít sparkle and doesnít last terribly long despite the above-average carbonation. Taste is medium-tart with no bitterness and light sweetness; no salt, of course, and minimized wheat slime, but there are nice lemon and tangerine accents, citrus combining here extremely well with the very mild hibiscus/floral tones. Full body is a bit heavier than Iíd like for style and in general for summer beers. There are some blase missteps here but Iím generally happy for the cleanliness and controlled tang; a simple, smooth, easy-drinker that still tastes great with volume. [2016.08.13: 3.4]

Sour floral aroma. Hazy pale yellow. Foamy white head that fades away to a thin film. Fruity. Tart. Crisp. Light. Refreshing. Nice.

Draft 0.15l at Cafe Gollem Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Thank you Pieter. 09.06.2016. Pour it hazy pinkish color with big pink head. Aroma nice fruity lemony, kind of a tea. Taste sourish, just a pinch salty, fruity, nice refreshing, good balanced.

mcberko (14011) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 12 oz. bottle, pours a clear bright amber with a tiny white head. Aroma brings out lots of salt upfront, with subdued hibiscus and a little citrus. Flavour is wonderfully balanced, with a fantastic mix of salt, light citrus and hibiscus. Low citrus, high salt and medium hibiscus on the finish. Low, almost flat, carbonation. One of the best goses out there. Excellent.

12 Oz bottle poured. Best by early December. Fresh? I donít know exactly. Apple juice golden color with no head. Straw heavy fruity aroma. Sweet and tart juicy flavor with mixed berry, small floral, and a wheat and straw reminder. Simple drink here. Refreshing. Speaking of refreshing, its refreshing to see a gose without a pun for a name. Ideal gose here.
