COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour beer, a re-creation of a nearly lost German beer style, is a one-off Gose project made with sour pie cherries and spiced with Granada cinnamon, nutmeg and orange peel. Dark spices and hint of dates greet you in the nose. Rich cherry flesh and a tart spiciness on the palate give way to spice and cherry skins in the finish.

Received growler from good trading buddy...thanks Jeff! Poured from Bottleworks growler. Pours a brownish amber color. Small amount of off white creamy/frothy head. Dissipates pretty quick to a ring of fizz around the outside. Appearance is slightly murky. Straight out of my cellar, @ 58 degrees...into my Founders large snifter.

Aroma is flanders like, kind of musty. Warm...cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg. Not boozy at all.

Flavor...very interesting. The flanders tart/slight pucker starts immediately and the somewhat saltiness of the gose hits shortly after. The flavors blend tremendously. The sourness from the sour cherries add such a great characteristic to a gose style beer. Mouthfeel is light, warm...and very smooth. The spices don't overpower this beer at all, in fact...their quite mild. The tartness too is quite tame. Very easy drinker!
