BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
California, United States
sierranevada.com

Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
In California, where temperatures often top triple digits, perfecting the warm weather beer is a priority. We happened upon a sweet-tangy blend of native-grown prickly pear cactus and grapefruit combined with the zing of a traditional gose for a vicious but delicious twist on the stodgy summer sippers.

Otra Vez is a tangy twist on the nearly extinct gose style. It combines the zip of prickly pear cactus with a hint of grapefruit for a bright and refreshing finish.

Pale yellow and par for course

Lime and some crackery notes - but also getting a strong impression of Ginger Ale

Yep, tastes like Godamn Ginger Ale. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Poor. Sierra Nevada needs to give this one up and have a fresh new go. The Lime Gose thing is a slippery slope.

Pale yellow pour kicks up a good foamy head and leaves a nice sheeting of lace.

Nose is salty and cucumbers.

Cucumber and salt assault the tongue, followed by massive citrus grapefruit pith, and very light sweetness which is actually cleansing. This finishes surprisingly clean after the assault on the palate.

I'm enjoying SN aggressive iteration of the gose style.

Straw yellow in color with a hazy appearance. Poured with a moderate, fizzy, bright white foam with low retention. Fresh lime zest and over ripe lemon aromas. Medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Tart lime with lemon notes up front followed by dry saltiness through the middle. Light tart and salty flavors slowly taper through the crisp dry finish. Crisp, tasty and refreshing. The first gose and one of the first tart beers that I really enjoyed. Sierra Nevada with another style defining offering.

Salty, citrusy finish. Almost a beer margarita.

From 2d2dspuma. In Teku glass. Playing Life is Strange Before the Storm. Lemony tart, yet not so much that displeases. Light lemony notes. Maybe some vegetal notes that could be the cacti but that doesnt give it enough interest

Had this for the first time Saturday night (this is also my first Gose). Given to me by a customer and I drank directly out of the can. Not a style that I will likely fall in love as I normally drink IPAs but it is the first wheat based ale that i actually liked and would drink again.. I cannot understand some of the poor ratings given by people who obviously do not like the style.
