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.

Taste is starting to fade a bit but still very enjoyable. Really hoping FB makes this again.

I had this awhile ago and never rated I guess. Original bottle from the Imperial release. Shared by Edgar...Thanks! snifter pour was hazy yellow and active white head. Some lace. Aroma is salty brine with a lemon citrus and cereal grains. The taste was damn good for a gose and was a salty balanced tart lemon and lime. Some grains on the finish. Light body, tart finish. Well carbed. So damn good.

Draft at MBCP Day. Nose is fruity but hard to identify with a sharp acidity/sourness in the nose. Pour is slightly hazy pale yellow. Taste is very sour and puckering, but then again, I drank mostly porters and stouts this particular day. Overall a very nice and tart beer, I hope to have it again on a better palette.

This is awesome. Light berry, light salt. Great balance. Finishes with something like umami. Finishes slightly hazy brown without much head or lacing. Great balance, well drinkable. Some tartness with berry integration. Tap at brewpub.

Un verre de 12 onces sur place. Jaune voilé avec une mousse qui souhaite la résistance. Kiwi, coriandre, blé sûr, sel, fruits astringents, Berliner, Gose, Wild, herbes et tout le tralala rattaché à une bière qui quelque fois te fait dire tout simplement wow! Bouche comme des fruits exotiques et surets trempés dans une solution épicée et saline. C’est vraiment bon! Un yaourt aux kiwis? C’est possible ça? Encore une fois, tout est question d’équilibre. Et ici, c’est ce qui est merveilleux. Je pourrais aussi rajouter que c’est aussi du Funky, tout simplement! Pétillante et légère au palais. Texture gonflée par des saveurs incroyables. Une finale délicieuse comme la sueur salée qui perle la joue d’une Australienne qui embrasse une Néo-Zélandaise. Meilleure bière de mon voyage. Complètement débile. Tellement facile à boire. Tout simplement superbe.

Hazy yellow pour. Nose is really funky, some smoked meats, salt, coriander, sour fruits. Taste is sour fruit, passionfruit, salt, mouthpuckering tartness. Light palate that works perfectly with the big yet balanced tartness.

Bottle from Matt. Thanks! A: Cloudy lemon color with no head. Huge gusher - its head asplode. N: Lemon, salt, "snozzberry", agave, coriander, grapefruit rind, and a touch of wood. Something like dragonfruit. T: Sour and appreciably salty. Slight sweetness. M: Tingling carbonation, very light body. O: After Gose Gone Wild, I find its ’competitors’ have a lot of room to grow. Still, I would have this one again, provided it doesn’t commit to a reenactment of a grade school science fair volcano.

Great....sour mango, and corriander aroma. Pretty tart but real balance with its tartness and apricot jam. ZSour come back trough and fairly dry finish. Just an overall great beer all around. A+++

Bottle thanks to Russell and Rob. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a intense passionfruit and mandarin orange. Thin mouthfeel with a very tart passionfruit, light salt, coriander and tart finish. Wow, this was amazing.

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.
