Notes/Commercial Description:
Most brewers spend a lot of time and effort keeping lactobacillus out of their breweries; it was the first thing we brought in (it still has to stay in the corner though). We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer and the second is an overly acidic & funky beer fermented solely with lactobacillus. We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, it's hard to make.

a: very hazy light yellow in color. very bright. 1/2 finger white head that fades to just some lacing

s: wheat aroma hits you right away. some big malt and berry sweetness that you get in some weizens. more wheat and a bunch of coriander, and a hint of cardamom. slightly like apple juice

t: this is my first Gose, and its quite an interesting brew. wheat and coriander upfront. that fades into some sweet malts and berries. this is then balanced out by the salt. its so interesting the salt incorporated in here. its not 'salty' but you do get a little bit of sharpness from it which makes it extremely refreshing

m: despite the lack of head here, its pretty highly carbonated. a nice amount to help the sweetness and salt sharpness pop

o: like this much more than i thought i would, not being a salt person. its extremely tasty, and super refreshing - but doesn't have any overpowering flavors. nicely harmonized

Bottle from Julio's.

A crystal clear light yellow with a dense, white head that falls off to a ring leaving little lacing, this looks solid. The nose is solid. Definitely wheaty with a mild lactic sputness and a yogurty funk, there's a mild grape like character present as well. Coriander is reserved, allowing the wheat and lacto to dominate, making this more of a berlinerweiss/gose hybrid. Mildly sulfury as well.

The palate opens tart, refreshing and with a blend of buttermilk, yogurt, wheat bread, and some grist. The mid palate has a mild coriander flavor, but the lack of salt makes this pretty interesting. By taking away that downright quenching character, this really veers off into berlinerweiss waters. Very light in body with a mild, watery moutfeel, disappointingly so, this beer is moderately carbonated and feels OK on the palate. Decent stuff.
