Year of New Beer: Tropical Gose, Country Boy Brewing Co (Georgetown)
Written By: Dion on 07/27/2020
For my money, a gose is the best base for fruit additions, and this one just reinforces my belief. Guava and passion fruit are the stars of the show, both showing up very well in the aroma. The "dustiness" of the wheat base is still evident, however. On the tongue, this evokes a tropical note for sure, with the guava taking the lead, providing a moderately tart punch. For me, the passion fruit almost lends a fleeting, juicy sweetness along the middle before the sour returns on the finish. Such a good warm weather beer, well done.
