Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: Leipzig Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
We love cocktails. Like, really love them. If you ask us, few are more refreshing than the tart and tangy margarita and our latest barrel-aged beer pays tribute to that perennial classic. We took an imperial gose brewed with agave, lime and sea salt and then aged it in tequila barrels for just the right amount of kick. Consider it a party in a bottle. Más Agave!

look: 2.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours an effervescent and hazed amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Some lacing, less head retention

S: Tons of lime, then it kinda fades

T: Dryness, a little saltyness, a little Tequila hit as well up front. More lime, agave, dryness & salt as this warms. Finishes dry, salty with the mandatory Tequila components

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation

Hits all the right notes, nice blend of flavors

Poured at 55 degrees. Honey color. A cloudy look with a half inch head that stayed with the brew for a while. There are strong lime notes here. It struck me as sweet, with a sour forward taste. I have 3 more left, so I'll taste it again to get a better Idea.

This beer was good but in all honesty I wanted more sourness from the gose style whereas it was more sugary sweet. You can definitely taste salt, lime, agave, tequila, sugar, and honey with malty hops but when it comes down to it this beer just tasted like a cheap margarita from the bar that used well tequila. More I drink it I like it but would rather enjoy a margarita made with some top shelf tequila.

From the back label: "Bottled On: 04.30.19 0921 6 10.0% alc./vol."

Appearance: The body is a burnished copper color that is opaque. It has a large white head with good retention.

Aroma: There is an interesting mixture of cherry tootsie roll pop, bay leaf, sage, and wood chips. the strongest aroma here is cherry.

Taste: There is this massive cherry flavor which is a bit tart and then turns a bit buttery towards the middle. There is a caramel flavor and a bit of cream. There is a hint of cinnamon spice and a bit of nutmeg. There are so many unidentifiable flavors that are just shooting around the palate.

Mouthfeel: It feels thick and creamy with a solid weight on the palate. There is a tartness that cuts at the beer. It is the kind of beer that you have to pause before consuming because there is so much going on.

Overall: It is a very busy and interesting beer. There is no shortage of flavors, aromas, or experience in this beer. It is a "must try" beer that I would both highly recommend and drink again. It is highly impressive and loaded to the brim with not only character, but unique character.

Looks nice, dark amber, clear, minimal head. Smells like a maragarita, salty, tangy, lime, agave, tastes like one too - citrusy lime, tart, salty, smooth, minimal alcohol warmth at 10%. This is super refreshing, tasty, crushable.

Pours a dark golden color with a little bit of white head that fizzes away quickly. Smell is lime, tequila, and salt. Primarily lime. Taste is lime, sweeter to start with, some tequila, agave, hint of salt towards the end. Very much a margarita flavor. Feel is fairly light for the ABV, easy to drink. Overall is a BA beer I could drink in hotter weather, it's a little sweet and tart but that really lends to the margarita feel of the drink. It's tasty, shoulda cracked one with last night's burrito dinner.
