Notes / Commercial Description:
Two Roads is driving a tanker truck down a road less traveled with this Passion Fruit Gose (pronounced GO-sah). This series of unique ales are kettle soured in our very own tanker truck trailer – a former milk tanker like the one on the front label - that's parked right on the grounds of our brewery! Featuring a nose of BIG tropical fruit, the taste is of light wheat and a perfect harmony of tartness and sweet fruit that's mingled with salinity to really bring the flavors to life - this refreshing gose is the perfect accompaniment to any occasion.

Well,this is a refreshing beer. All the goodness of a gose,and throw in passionfruit? Yes please.

Look is orange gold with no head.

Smell is passionfruit strong,as expected, but those elements of Gose are there too. I get sour and a touch of ocean salt.

Taste is really quite nice,it begins with a puckering passionfruit burst,then trails off with a bit of what I'll call ocean,which is subtle but there.

Feel is what you want for a gose, puckering, light and good carbonation. Finish is tart and not too briny.

I said it above, I'll drink this happily. A well constructed beer with some really nice flavor and body. Perfect for the summer. Odds are my wife will steal this from me.

Pours a hazy, bright yellow with a thick white head that quickly fizzes away. Smells of tartness and passion fruit, a little tropical but mostly passion fruit. Taste is tart passion fruit, with a little hint of wheat at the beginning and some salinity on the finish. Light with just a little carbonation. Tasty beverage.

I love the unfiltered the appearance and how much the passion fruit is showcased, however there is almost no salinity. I really enjoy it, but so many gose's seem to be trending towards just being fruited sours

Thanks to JLindros for hooking me up with a can.

A - Poured into a Duvel tulip a nice hazy dark straw hue with thin white head that faded to leave thin wisps.

S - Aromas of musty passion fruit, nice tartness. Excellent tropical nose. Smells like a glass of passion fruit juice. Really aromatic.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of passion fruit. Very light wheat and salt. There is some very solid tartness on the finish as well.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, little flemmy.

O - Overall this was a delicious gose with excellent passionfruit notes. Really bright and clean. Very well done.

Serving Type: Can

16 oz. can dated 3/24/17. Should still be OK, but who knows? Poured into Carton Dubvariant glass.

L: Hazy golden/orange. A little bit of a head, but poor retention, leaving no lacing and only a tiny ring.

S: We do have passionfruit! We also detect wheat and sea air.

T: Passionfruit. A slightly off-note that comes off to me as soured wheat that hasn't integrated entirely. Tart and slightly salty finish.

F: Light body. Could use a bit more carbonation, I think. Balance on finish is good and sour without being too sour. Not quite as crisp and refreshing as it could or should be.

O: It's OK. Could be better. Possibly might be when fresh.

Poured into a pokal, the appearance was a hazy pale burnt thick yellow color with a fizzy little white head that vaporized immediately leaving no lace. Ah, the "Americanized gose," gotta love it. The aroma had a huge soured-wheat portion fully embracing the front end riding to the back end. Salinity level seemed a bit higher than a lot of other goses I’ve had by American brewers. Lemon tartness along with a super light passion fruit sweet to tart came in underneath. The flavor lead with the sour and tangy passion fruit to lemon quality. Drying sweet with saline level coming in pretty good. Salty to tangy and passion fruit sweet sort of aftertaste flowing into a subtle sticky to semi-salty finish. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Sour harshness wasn’t too abrasive. Saltiness brought a good comeuppance sort of grip. Overall, more gose than creative take with the passion fruit which seemed barely there. I’d still have this again.

This one pours a murky orange color, with a small head, and a good bit of lacing.

Smells like super juicy and tart passionfruit, with a bit of salinity on the nose.

This is pretty simple, but very delicious. There's a lot of authentic and delicious passionfruit goodness, with a soft acidity, and a very slight salty finish. There's not a ton of funk- it feels like straight lacto.

This is light bodied, crisp, and very juicy, with a good level of carbonation, and a high level of drinkability.

This is a wonderful little beer- I imagine it being great on a hot day in the summer.

Canned 3/24/17

Pours a light fizzy fluffy head that fades quickly, no lacing, a hazy murky golden orange blond color.

nose big raw dough, sour dough mash, straw, wheat, toasted grains, lemony tartness, a little generic tart citrus, unripened sour tangerine, a bit of earthy passion fruit but not much

Taste starts very sour much more than I expected, loads of lemony tartness and acidity, again unripened sour tangerine and generic citrus, plenty of passion fruit mostly juice, earthy a little musty juice, lots of raw dough malt again, cereal toasty grains, plenty of wet stray hay and creamy toasty wheat, sticky creamy lactic acid, a little funky, and a hint of salt on the back end which adds that weird thirst quenching refreshing thing. Finish dry a little flemmy sticky tart, acidic, a touch more salt.

mouth is med to lighter bod, creamy wheat, lactic acid creamy and tart flemmy but acidic, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice, good passion fruit that doesn't overpower, nice lactic acid and souring, good wheat and malt base, very enjoyable summer beer,. Two Roads does it again, very underrated brewery IMO.
