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.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle - pours a fizzy, hazy pink - nose of salt, lactic tartness, cranberry, mild hibiscus, a light muskiness, even a faint hint of acetic acid - a touch of brine up front - flavor is quite tart after that, bordering an straight-up sour - notes of tart cranberry and raspberry - a moderate sweetness and a touch of bready wheat cut the tartness briefly, but it returns for the finish, with a final punch of salt that lingers on the tongue in the dry finish - pretty refreshing, but the lingering acidity is a little much.

Drake (8539) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy pink color with a thin creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of doughy, bready malt, tart berries, a mild bit of brine. The taste is tart berries, cherries, cranberries, pale malt, salty finish. Medium bodied, bright, good balance but a bit too "juicy." Solid beer. .

obguthr (3828) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Currants, feet, and dirty laundry smell. Thatís not good funk. Clear pink, thick sudsy head. Currant, surge of intense malt flavor at midpalate that slowly fades away. Floral overtones throughout. Pleasantly tart, not overly carbonated. Nice with barbacoa!

M82 (284) - Kansas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
A fading frothy, pink tinted head completely dissipates over a softly hazed vermillion body

Tart earthy, sweaty, juicy vinegar funk is rounded by mineral, and softened by a mildly sweet, dusty floral layer on a medium light body with active, soft carbonation leading to a lightly dry funky finish, fairly simple yet complimentary, quenching components with solid intensity

12oz bottle code 4184 0937 F Best By 04/02/15 served at 42į into Orrefors Beer Taster

vyvvy (3978) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours pinkish / orange with a white head with a pink tinge. The aroma is very sharp with lemon citrus, hibiscus, tangy tartness, some saltiness and a crisp wheatiness that is reminiscent of a berliner wiess. It has a light crisp refreshing body with prickly carbonation that works well for the style. The flavor begins with a nice mix of citrus bite and hibiscus floral and sweet notes. There is a bit of coriander showing through and the crisp slight sour wheatiness. The finish shows more of the coriander and hibiscus and there is a saltiness that stays on the tongue afterwards. There may be a better summer beer at a six pack price out there for me, but Iím not sure what it is. This is great.
