Notes / Commercial Description:
A well-balanced, tart, and refreshing ale. We combined the classic flavors of lime and blue agave nectar in a tart gose-style beer for the ultimate answer to the heavy heat of the day. The bright lime flavor helps wake up the palate while the mild sweetness of the agave rounds out the tangy zip of the citrus fruit. Light and refreshing, this all-new Otra Vez will have you calling for another round.

12 oz. Can
PKGD: 080818

Poured into a Trillium glass a nice golden yellow color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which leaves some minimal sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some citrus/lime, agave, tart. The taste is malty, yeasty, with a nice citrus/lime note, some agave, nice tartness. Medium body, ABV is hidden very nicely. Overall, a tasty brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Packaged date on can bottom is stamped as '050918C 11:37'.
Very slightly cloudy, straw colored body. Fizzy head disappears to a small island and a thin ring fed by bubbles. Leaves behind a couple of spots of lacing but most either disappears or slides back down into body.
Lime and agave in the aroma, with a slight salinity.
Tart lime mixes in with the general sourness. Minor agave sweetness. Has a touch of salinity.
Thinner mouth feel but has a burst of fizziness on the tongue. Once the salt comes through the finish is a little dry.
Refreshing for all seasons, with the base gose reinforced with the tartness of the lime and the sharp sweetness of the agave.

L: Clear light yellow with a tiny white head. Medium-poor retention, but a ring remains, along with spotty lacing.

S: Lime zest, lime candy, limeade, lemon peel, hints of agave, light salinity.

T: Tart lime zest upfront. Limeade powder and candied lime peel. Moderately tart with a light acidity. Cracker malt and hay with a faint hint of salt. Notes of blue agave near the finish. Crisp, clean, and lightly dry.

F: Light, almost watery, but well carbonated. Lightly zippy. Clean and crisp.

O: A solid refreshing, moderately limey gose. Pretty well done.

The clear light golden yellow colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 2” fluffy white head that recedes slowly but visibly to a small ring of foam and a thin irregular island of foam while leaving a few rings, scattered patches and legs of lacing with lots of open spaces. Sipping creates various sized patches and legs of lacing, some of which slide back down to the liquid. Soon there's just a thin island of foam.

The aromas are all about the citric lime and the agave but in the background there’s a bit of the sea, a bit of wheat and malt and just a hint of acidity.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the citric lime and agave up front and backed up nicely by a bit of wheat and sweetness from the malt and wheat, some light, noticeable tartness and just a bit of salt.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and gently prickly from the persistent finely bubbled light carbonation. The medium to long length finish begins as the initial burst of lime and agave give way to some light sweetness mingled with the slightly salty tartness that is light and dry in the ending.

Overall a great summer refresher that I’d be happy to have again but would be willing to have two or more in a row. I’ve enjoyed this one enough that I’ve very curious to try the Tequila barrel aged version as well.

Pours out a glowing yellow with a white head. Retention is above average and there is just a bit of lacing.

The nose is basically lime with a little salt. Not really getting the agave. Reminds me of a bud light lime only with a bit more quality. Smells refreshing none the less.

Yup. Lime and a pinch of salt. Taste like a light lager with natural lime juice added. Not much else.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with refreshing carbonation. This is a good hot weather beer for sure.

A 12 fl. oz. can, packaged on 9th May 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A very lightly hazy, but mostly clear golden colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention, but only left sparse lacing.

Aroma: Sweet, tangy and tart, lime, hard candy, agave with a hint of wheat.

Taste: Like the aroma, it is sweet, tangy and tart. It’s got your classic hard candy flavours, and then imagine the flavours mixed. Lime comes out on top though with a light saltiness to balance.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: To be honest, I don’t remember what the original tasted like, but I enjoy this version. The flavour is right up my alley, and overall it was just clean and super refreshing for my palate especially on a hot summer day like today.

I love Sierra. I love gose. This is the perfect combination between the two.
I never had agave before but it is definitely something that's perfect for a hot summer night's drink. And goses as well. And anything from Sierra. And their perfect combination.
Because this gose was kind our more like a soda or a cider, but in a good way. It was extremely refreshing, light, fizzy and sparkling, semi sour, semi citrusy, semi cucumbery, slightly salty, but perfectly balanced, never losing its integrity and taste intensity. It was all good and really pleasant to drink from the beginning to the end.
I only regret that I had only one can... because I could imagine siiting and chilling and cooling down with a bucketful of this on this hot summer night - well, still not in the realm of the triple degrees but hot enough for 10 PM. Otra vez - I say, would have it again and again.

Pours clear straw golden color. Sour aroma, with hints of lime. Light bodied, tart flavor, with mild sweetness, lime, agave, and salt. Have a love hate with this. Taste to much like a margarita. So much so the tart sourness can't bring me back.

This beer is good but is not nearly as satisfying as the Original.
Ive read this is phasing out the Prickly Pear and grapefruit....shame
Fucking lime flavored sell outs, SN beer is fucking plain enough as it is and then they make a really good brew that is unique only to change it to what a hundred other brands already have on the label ...lime Beer Geek Nation was right. So long suckers

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/8/2018. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lightly tart limes, lemon, citrus zest, grapefruit, orange, peach, pear, red/green apple, melon, white wine, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, agave, wheat, cracker, white bread, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, limes, agave, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart limes, lemon, citrus zest, grapefruit, orange, peach, pear, red/green apple, melon, white wine, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, agave, wheat, cracker, white bread, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart limes, lemon, citrus zest, grapefruit, orange, peach, pear, red/green apple, melon, white wine, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, agave, wheat, cracker, white bread, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, limes, agave, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly acidic, and lightly saline balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is an excellent fruited gose! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, limes, agave, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly acidic/drying finish. Never overly lactic or salty. Really great lime vibrancy and balanced Lacto complexity; nice malt/agave backbone against acidity, with minimal residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.
