Most brewers spend a lot of time and effort keeping lactobacillus out of their breweries; it was the first thing we brought in (it still has to stay in the corner though). We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer and the second is an overly acidic & funky beer fermented solely with lactobacillus. We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, itís hard to make.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of coriander and lacto. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of coriander upfront, followed by a touch of lacto. Low saltiness for the style - almost seems more like a Berliner. Solid stuff.

Smell is somewhere between a Hoegaarden and a Blue Moon. Pours very light yellow and cloudy. Tastes like lemons, with a hint of coriander. Very wheaty at first, but settles in nicely. Overall a decent one.

Not a style I seek out but had to try it since I see it so often in stores. Plenty of lemony, yeasty wheat beer here, and that interesting coriander thatís in the background. Interesting, but not a beer I want to try more than once.

Bottle pour light gold with quickly dissipating minimal white head. Nose light funk, tart fruit, lemon citrus. Taste lemon, big citrus, then sweet like limoncello . Some Belgian candy sugar and light spice mid. Fairly thick syrupy mouth feel. Light tart and spice finish.

Pour is a soft light yellow, almost white tints. Very low carbonation. Smell is lemon, coriander, spices, black pepper, vinegar and yeast. Taste is immediate lemon and orange with other citrus, then a slight change to bitter rind and vinegar. Palate dies down quickly but leaves a lingering sweet lemon aftertaste. Not really knowledgeable about this style.

In spite of what its name suggests, Troublesome is an easygoing sour beer. The addition of pilsner yeast has tamed the lacto acidity in this beer and left it with a bread-like smell and taste. Gose is a sour German wheat ale variety, but Off Colorís brew drinks a lot like a lager. There are subtle notes of coriander and the flavor reminded me a lot of sour dough bread. Tartness is still here, thereís some lemony funk and salt. With a clear body, lots of carbonation, and a snowy head, Troublesome is damn photogenic. When people say they donít like Gose, this is the one you should steer them toward.

Frothy head. Light, champagne-like carbonation. Clean, refreshing and light. Faint coriander is nicely in the background. Slight sourness provides a hint of lemony twang. Overall, itís well made, pleasant and easy to drink, but flavor-wise it just seems a bit restrained.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Light golden, slightly hazy pour, not much of a head. Sour aroma of a vinegary and lemon nature, Solid sour flavor, some sweet tarts candy, vinegar, a bit of lemony citrus bent to it. Nice textured mouthfeel. Pretty solid Gose.
