BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Each year we brew a beer to benefit ArtPrize, the world’s largest art competition held annually in our hometown of Grand Rapids, MI. This year’s beer is Green Zebra. Subtly sour and a little sweet, this ale is a refreshing take on a nearly extinct German style, gose. Watermelon is the highlight of this lightly-hopped treat and gives it a hint of satisfying juiciness. The soft mouthfeel and dry finish comes courtesy of the addition of sea salt, a traditional gose ingredient.

Personally i love this beer more than i should. Had it on tap from the founders guys at a brew festival. Bought two sixers as soon as i found them and I drank about three a sitting with them and i never session beers like this. So tasty, perfectly sour and slightly salty with a sweet puckering nose. Goddamn most of these boys never left the can.

Not really my cup of tea - tried this one on tap at Founders Brewery. Pale yellow color, a little head without any lacing. Smells of watermelon candy - like a Jolly Rancher. Tastes of watery watermelon, salt, a little grain. Tart and too sweet at the same time, and just too much saltiness for my licking. Thin mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Admittedly I’m not into this beer style.

On tap at Oscar's Pub. Sour. Yes, I know that's the style; and I'm writing a review based on the style, not on my personal opinion of the style. But this one was tart--mouth puckering, head turning-ly, "wow!" sour. That said, it was a fun addition to the bartender's choice sample flight. If you're a gose fan (and I, admittedly, am not), definitely worth trying.

virtually no head strong smell of candy watermelon. salt starts out light at first and fortunately increases as the beer warms. by the end salt dominates with a light candy taste. this beer starts out aweful and improves to fair at the finish. not likely to purchase again any time soon.

Per my girlfriend, this beer tastes "juicy" in a good way. Nice golden color. Can actually smell the watermelon. This gose is very sweet with a nice watermelon flavor. The sea salt balances out this beer very well. I would rate this as a "drinkable" beer meaning I could drink many.
