Sierra Nevada Otra Vez
Sierra Nevada Otra Vez is a Gose brewed with cactus and grapefruit, 4.5% ABV.
This pours with an appropriately hazy lemon yellow color and a nice little white head that sticks around for quite a while. I’m not getting much of the speciality ingredients in the aroma, but this is still a good smelling Gose. Light grain and mild tartness, a hint of Belgian like candi sweetness (which I guess could be the cactus). I really like the taste on this. A quick blast of tartness is quickly followed by what is tasting like watermelon to me. It has to be the combo of the grapefruit and cactus that is creating that watermelon flavor. A solid amount of saltiness brings up the rear on this tasty beer.
I have to say I think they have a winner with this one; light and easy to drink, but full of flavor. Not sure this was the time of year to release this, but I hope this is still in the year round line-up this summer!
