COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You may have noticed by now we have a not-so-subtle obsession with a certain classic children’s book-inspired-movie. It’s a great film that’s inspired us in many ways, including with this beer.

We’re quite fond of the Gose style, a traditional German sour beer that blends the subtle tartness of a Berliner weisse with the addition of kettle salts and coriander. We took it a step further and infused it with snozzberries... well, what we think they might taste like, anyway.

We do hope you enjoy this Founders’ Club exclusive release, and recommend that you share this good egg with friends.

12 oz tap pourin @ lord hobo. Potent juicy white grapes, kiwi fruit, watermelon fruit salad. Bright yet soft lemon yogurt acidity. Pleasant musty fog. Very drinkable grapefruit kiwifruit soda rew. Exceeded expectations. Very drinkable.

Bottle shared at Pre-Hunahpu Thursday Tasting. Thanks to biggsbowler (I think) for the share. Pours a pink color with a white head. Nose is some berries, some tropical fruit, some tartness, and some salt. Flavor is similar with some light salt, some tart tropical fruit, and some berries. Interesting beer overall.

Cloudy yellow with no head. Generic berry nose, very tart, a little saline...the berry tastes like underripe salmonberries...actually is passion fruit but fun.

Hazy yellowish pour. Thanks to whomever shared this in Tampa. I get a lot of passionfruit and guava. Reminds me of another floridaweisse beer that I love. Reminds me a lot of it. A little less sour and less fruit. Plus the addition of salt. Very glad to have tried this.

This is a pretty darn good fruit berliner or Gose or whatever the duck you want to classify it as. Fruity and sour and a touch salty though not briny enough for the style. Good beer.

bytemesis (3017) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle with huge thanks to 50belair! Pours cloudy golden amber with a small off-white fizzy soda like head that dissipates very quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is quite passion fruity, lemon, light funk. Flavor is medium tart, instantly drying out the mouth, lots and lots of passionfruit and stone fruit inside, amazingly fruity actually, some funky horse blanket notes as well. Not really getting a lot of salt, but with so much else going on perhaps that is not surprising. Medium body and quite fizzily carbonated in the mouth, dries you out and then leaves saliva in its wake. Pretty darn tasty, I must say!

Bottle thanks to Beerman6686. Pours radioactive yellow gold. White head. Lively carbonation. Nose and taste of passion fruit, tropical fruit, tart melon, sour banana, coriander and sea salt. Acidic. Lighter medium body.
