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.

This is an odd beer for the Raul man. Hella almost crystal clear pour - about as inspiring as Tara Reid taking the SAT’s. Aroma is non-existant like punksatony Phill grabbing a hedgehock out of his hole. Taste?? Like uhhhh. It weirdly has the flavor and feel that sets you up for something lick puckering and tart, and then it disappears like the Lindbergh baby.

I’ll pass on this one next time.

A- Can to a goblet with a clear golden body and a fizzy cap. The white head peaks at a finger before slowly receding to a ring at the edges and a small floating foam layer. Small sheets of lacing.

S- Clean lactic lemony tartness and raw slightly sweet base barley. A hint of breadiness but overall clean and tarts.

T- Becomes bready and the tartness is a bit more balanced out between that, some base barley notes and a light sweetness. Lemons, bread and raw grains.

MF- Fluffy light body that avoids being thin with a nice creamy texture. Moderate level of carbonation. Ends tart.

A great easy going tart brew that is good for any occasion and perfect for those that want a good sour beer for an affordable price.

This pours a light straw gold color with a bright cap of foam. Pleasantly tart with a light salinity. Easy drinker, and easy to find pretty much anywhere.

I ran out of IPA recently, so I ran to the store after dinner with my family. I was wandering around this store, not one of my usual places, when one of the employees came past and asked if he could help me. I said I was fine, just looking for a different IPA from my usual - he said, "Let me recommend a few things, because we're actually closed and you need to leave."

Whoops. I panicked a bit and just grabbed the first six pack I saw. It happened to be Sierra Nevada Otra Vez, and it was on sale for less than a dollar a bottle. Groovy. I don't generally drink gose regularly though, so I was a little disappointed I hadn't grabbed an IPA. Whatever.

Otra Vez pours a pleasant yellow-gold color. It's quite fragrant, predominantly a salty agave aroma. Very nice - I like it already. The taste is accurate to the smell - all salty agave, with the promised hint of grapefruit. Super refreshing. It does have a mildly unpleasant aftertaste, but it's generally quite good.

I don't chase goses and likely never will. But Otra Vez is decent and will never be unwelcome in my fridge.

Best enjoyed on tap! Exceptionally cravable sour. Drinkability takes this one beyond a sessionable into standby default territory. Balance in complexion unlike any I've tried.

The main point of attraction is the absolutely stunning finish of the beer. Near the end of the sip, it is a truly amazing almost fruit taste.

I was surprised with the taste of this gose-style ale compared to the other gose ale's I've tried. The smell is not that pleasing but the taste is very delicate with the zing of a gose ale.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow. No head.
Sour silage smell. Wheat is apparent. Some spice detected.
Tart citrus flavour. Unripe pineapple and grapefruit.
Medium body and very refreshing. Like an old fashioned flat unsweetened shandy.
