Funky Buddha Founders Series 1: Veruca Snozzberry Gose

RATINGS: 28   MEAN: 4.19/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 4.04/5   SEASONAL: Series   EST. CALORIES: 156   ABV: 5.2%
You may have noticed by now we have a not-so-subtle obsession with a certain classic childrens book-inspired-movie. Its a great film thats inspired us in many ways, including with this beer.

Were 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.

New beer #2 at EBF. Draft. Golden hazy pour with white head. Funky fruit, mild salt, berries, tart aromas. Flavors are nice, nothing too over powering, berries, tart fruit, mild funk.

Sample at EBF Saturday Hazy dark yellow with a thin white head. Big salty melony fruit on the nose. Lots of salt in the flavor countered nicely with the fruit and tartness.

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 voil avec une mousse qui souhaite la rsistance. Kiwi, coriandre, bl sr, sel, fruits astringents, Berliner, Gose, Wild, herbes et tout le tralala rattach une bire qui quelque fois te fait dire tout simplement wow! Bouche comme des fruits exotiques et surets tremps dans une solution pice et saline. Cest vraiment bon! Un yaourt aux kiwis? Cest possible a? Encore une fois, tout est question dquilibre. Et ici, cest ce qui est merveilleux. Je pourrais aussi rajouter que cest aussi du Funky, tout simplement! Ptillante et lgre au palais. Texture gonfle par des saveurs incroyables. Une finale dlicieuse comme la sueur sale qui perle la joue dune Australienne qui embrasse une No-Zlandaise. Meilleure bire de mon voyage. Compltement dbile. Tellement facile 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 doesnt 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+++
