Rosé GoséRosé Gosé
Notes: Just when you thought you had done slurped up all the neon. Rosé Gosé is hot pink in appearance with a tart berry flavor. Brewed with loads of hibiscus, Himalayan pink sea salt, and coriander.

Picked this up from Speedway, one of the more rare examples where they aren't charging 200+% for something out of distro. Was like $3.50 or $4 a can, I can do that.

Pours a cranberry like color into a Strange Brew glass. I like the label, Dirty Dancing is aight, but its no Road House. No bubble head, they stuck to the side of the glass, dirty nerd mafia has thoughts I'm sure. The aroma was that rose, cranberry, floral, sour, coriander aspect. The salinity factor wasn't huge. Saison yeast doesn't say much.

Taste, alright, this beer is basically equal parts gose, wild ale and saison. The rose part was done well. The sourness was about a 4 on the 10 pt scale. Has a pretty light body. There isn't much going on here that would appeal to someone looking for normal beer. But if you don't mind a little summer rose splash, it does the trick. As a gose, its kind of there.

Not really something I am looking to acquire more of, but I don't regret the purchase either. Good enough stuff.

Poured from 16oz can into a dimpled mug. The can is stamped Batch #002, but doesn't specify a date.

Appearance: a light salmon-pink hue with a moderate haze and a finger of frothy white foam atop. A bit non-traditional for a gose, sure, but it's definitely what it says on the tin.

Smell: a little sweet with a tart wheaty element, and a little hibiscus character. The aroma is a bit one-note but, as in the aroma, it's pretty much as-advertised.

Taste: a bit more tartness than suggested by the aroma; there's a stylistically-appropriate funky wheatiness followed by a nice hibiscus character. I think the hibiscus works quite well in the balance presented here -- it complements the tartness appropriately. A successful mélange.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a moderate carbonation and OK creaminess. Big texture is not really this beer's "thing".

Overall: this beer is a refreshing quaff. It's got some personality, which is great. It might be a bit too tart and funky to drink a ton of, but still, I'm digging this.

canned in a little crafty craft can and part of a delivery from Artisan Ales in Sale though probably not operating from the Emporium
Pours a raspberry red body with no head
aroma betrays the hibiscus used
some lovely flowery flavour against salty sour

A: The beer is rather hazy purplish red in color. It poured with a short white head that rapidly dissipated, leaving no traces of bubbles on the surface whatsoever.
S: Light to moderate aromas of berries are present in the nose - blueberries seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of blueberries and cherries along with hints of hibiscus towards the finish. There is a touch of saltiness in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has nice berry-like aromas and flavors. It also has refreshing qualities.

Can't even remember how I got this beer, it's been so long and since it wasn't dated on the bottom of the can, I had no idea how old this was. I also don't get the "Dirty Dancing" reference on the label and I'm one of a handful of people on this planet that never saw the movie and don't have any intention on it. To be fair, this beer looked like Rose when I poured it out but didn't taste like wine once I gave it a sip. Easygoing and true to form, this was a great Lepizig Gose that would be just as good on a hot summer day as during any other time of the year!

Poured like a Rose as the beer was had the hue of lavender or potpourri and seemed like liquid hibiscus in a can. The head had to one of the loudest and fastest-settling piles of bubbles that I've ever seen in anything I ever drank, as it settled nearly as soon as I poured this out. Very little lacing was left on the side of my pint glass as this was quite thin and not as carbonated as I would have guessed. Salt, hibiscus, chiffon, light wine, and raspberry came through in the light nose as the taste had all of these easygoing notes in it as well. Floral notes and sourness came through in the taste but it was so easy breezy that this ended up going right down, with some light wood and tartness lingering once the liquid went down.

Booze? I'm sure it's in here but I couldn't find it and I would have cracked another in a sitting had there been more than one can here. This won't win much of anyone over but a beer like this is nearly impossible to dislike at the same time. A nice example of the style that allowed me to easily continue my session tonight, while wondering when someone will come up with an Imperial take on this!

Aroma is big fruit/berries and mild sweetness/floral. The flavor is fruit/berries, malts/wheat, a mild hint of salt/minerals and a sweet/tart/dryish finish.

Nice hot pink pour, small head of thin white foam. Heavy amounts of thin, weak lace, along with cool organic patterns of foam floating on top of the beer.

A tangy nose, bright aromas of clementine, cranberry, wild berries, hibiscus, white grape, lime, and sea salt. Subtly complex, really inviting nose.

This is crazy crushable. Very present hibiscus, notes of lime, sea salt, melon, cranberry & strawberry. Tangy, with undertones of hay, white grape must, some emerging lacto, mildly peppery, and with that more bitter side of that floral hibiscus. Coriander comes out in the finish and has a mild linger.

Refreshing, crushable, crisp. Low but sharp, seltzery carb. Jammy, bready. Light mouthfeel.

Hoof Hearted is very overpriced in Michigan right now - this is the cheapest available at about $4/can, and there are better local goses available for better prices. Beautiful light pink sunset color, but with a nose I don't love - getting strong whiffs of grass, yard clippings, not really a lot of fruit coming through. Decent feel, easy drinker, nice sour lemony pucker, good salt, but not really justified at the price.

16 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but was just released locally. Pours fairly hazy reddish/pinkish orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tart/tangy cranberry, strawberry, hibiscus, lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, sea salt, hay, straw, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, lighter pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, hibiscus, sea salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour/tart/tangy cranberry, strawberry, hibiscus, lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, sea salt, hay, straw, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, lighter pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate lactic tart/sourness, wheat/hibiscus tang, and yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of sour/tart/tangy cranberry, strawberry, hibiscus, lemon, lime, orange, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, sea salt, hay, straw, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, lighter pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, hibiscus, sea salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/sourness, and tangy hibiscus balance; with no puckering flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering tart/sourness, hibiscus tang, and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic/tangy/tannic, and lightly saline balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an excellent flavored gose. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, hibiscus, sea salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink, with the modestly acidic/tangy/tannic/drying finish; not overly lactic or salty. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Awesome balance of jammy hibiscus flavors, Lacto complexity, and pale/wheat malts against acidity. Minimal residual sweetness from crisp dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. No complaints.

16oz undated can.

Pours sparkling clear pinkish red with a quickly fizzling head of white. Zero retention or lacing with a placid surface for the duration. Aromatics lead off with spicy peppercorns, hibiscus, lemon zest, and grapeskins. Light bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Tart and fruity on the palate with shades of red berries, scezuan peppercorns, and a hint of Pledge furniture polish. Finishes with a briny tartness.

An unusual take on the style but underwhelming for a $5 can.
