BEER INFO

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

Style: Leipzig 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.

Sierra nevada switched up the formula for this beer. It has a new bottle as well. With that being said, the old otra vez was delicious, the new one tastes like bud light lime and is virtually undrinkable. Fair warning to those buying this new formula, it's awful.

Cactus is something that may not belong in beer. Sierra Nevada gave it a shot with this one, but I think it's mostly a miss, but it is unique.

It pours yellow with some decent head. The aroma is weird. Gose, for sure, but with goofy ingredients. Ditto for the taste. Not quite right either. It's almost as refreshing as a traditional version.

Not recommended unless you really want something odd.

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.
