Almanac Golden Gate Gose
Local craft beer nerd Michelle brought this bottle of Almanac Golden Gate Gose up to Green Truck to share with me after she fell in love with it on a recent trip to California. Thanks for the beer!
The pour is slightly hazy and caries a strong bit of sour and salt on the nose. The taste of this is much more on the “extreme” side of the style. Very tart, bordering on straight sour, with a strong showing from the salt. Although that would have been enough to win me over, there is a fantastic note of lemon and lime that comes in towards the finish that is really making the beer for me.
Bold and flavorful, but still refreshing and drinkable. This quickly jumped in to my Gose top five!
