Almanac Beer Co.
California, United States

Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Golden Gate Gose is inspired by the classic wheat beer hailing from Leipzig, Germany. Traditionally brewed with salt and coriander, our tart California-inspried version is brewed with San Francisco Bay sea salt, lemon verbena from Eatwell Farm in Dixon, and coriander grown and dried especially for us by Dirty Girl Produce in Santa Cruz, California. Fermented with our house saison yeast, this delicate and tart beer is a perfect summer refresher. Pair with fresh seafood and sunshine.

large shared bottle.
Cloudy pale golden color.
Moderately funky aroma with a less funky but quite tart flavor and relatively complex flavor.
O: a challenging gose.

Received as an extra in a trade.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear golden hue with a nice one finger white head that fades to leave thin wisps and a light halo.

S - Aromas of cereal grains, very very faint citrus. Yeah..uhh..is this an adjunct lager?

T - Taste is much better than the nose. Lots of cereal grain, little bit of salt. Nice coriander and lemon. I'm missing that wheat note though, instead it's loads of cereal grains. Ehh...

M - Mouthfeel is crisply carbonated, tart, refreshing.

O - Overall, this beer was a disappointment for me. I miss the wheat, and the whole adjunct grain thing going on is really a deal breaker.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a clean, clear, pale yellow color out of the tap, there is a quickly fleeting bright white head on-top that leaves minimal spotting/lacing in the glass.

S — Smells of lightly sweet malts and a bit of a sour undertone, pretty one dimensional.

T — Lightly sour and tart, but really sweet compared to others in the style, very mild.

M — Light-Medium bodied, quick fleeting finish.

O — Underwhelming overall, had expected more from this one, just really dialed back.

A nice beer to look at, this gose lacks a lot in every other category. Its aroma is not very appealing and is actually kind of a drawback to the beer, and its taste and its aftertaste are both pretty weak.

Not a big fan of this one. Tastes like a slightly tart bud light.

I'm forced to imagine someone at Almanac genuinely appreciates lemon verbena.
