Year of New Beer: German Chocolate Cake Gose, Ethereal Brewing Co (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 09/29/2019

 This beer pretty much defies description. There's absolutely no logical reason for this flavor combination to work in this style of beer, but it does. A healthy dose of coconut greets the nose, while a very subtle chocolate, almost muffin-like, develops with warmth. The tart aspect of more traditional goses is certainly present on the tongue, briefly sharp ahead of the lightly sweet chocolate notes. Almost a salted coconut finish. So unusual, but very good.
