Tanker Truck Sour Series: Passion Fruit GoseTanker Truck Sour Series: Passion Fruit Gose
Notes: 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.

One of my all time favorites. I tend to pick up this beer when the weather starts warming up.. The intense passionfruit flavor and tartness transport me to summer in the Caribbean (where I lived for a little while) and picking wild growing passionfruit. Nothing about this beer is sweet or artificial. Nice dry finish.

Pale orange in color with a heavy haze. Poured with a tall, soapy, bright white foam with low retention. Light tropical fruit aromas with wheat malt and mellow tart notes. Medium light bodied with assertive, medium high effervescent carbonation. Tart fruity flavors with tropical fruit notes. Pleasant tartness through the middle and dry saltiness that persists to the end. Finished dryly with tart juicy and wheat malt flavors. Refreshing and very easy drinking. A great pool side beverage.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Captain Lawrence, muffin top glass; canned May 22, 2020.
A: Pours a hazy, almost Dayglow golden color, a short-lived, but two finger, white head, brief retention to a rim, and virtually no lacing.
S: Non of the acrid, wet hay, or barnyard aromas common to a Gose when opened. Aromas of passion fruit, honeysuckle (initially) sea salt and maybe a little caramel.
T: Semidry and nicely tart. Flavors definitely passion fruit with a strong salt presence. I could swear I taste wheat grain and this occasionally casts a bit of a grainy aftertaste.
M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Clean, if salty finish.
O: A really lovely, fruit based Gose. Since Goses (?Gosen) are the replacement fluid of beers, perfect before or after a run.

Poured from a 16 oz can into one of my pokal glasses, this beer pours a cloudy/hazy light to medium golden color with a nice white that's initially about an inch thick when first poured that settles to a nice film layer of surface foam along with a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with a fairly thick ring lining the inside of the glass. Not too much lacing here though. Aromas of bready malts and wheat and passion fruit sweetness and tartness concurrently. The taste is very similar, with bready malts and a good amount of wheat followed by the passion fruit pretty prominently. Rounded out with tart and salt. A very nice flavor profile overall. Has a crisp, frothy, also smooth, light to medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish, and all of the aforementioned flavors really linger nicely in the aftertaste.

One of the best Goses I've ever had. Exactly as advertised with a delicious passionfruit flavor with a nice salty and tart/sour finish you'd expect from a gose. Smell is sea water saltiness, hint of fruit and some wheat. Taste follows. Can't really ask for much more except a bit more fruit flavor but at 4.8% they packed about as much as they could into this one.

Pours hazy, bright gold in color. Taste is big passionfruit..seeds and all with heavy salt. Salty, light bodied, with high carbonation. Right up there with my favorite fruited goses. Huge passionfruit taste. This is an all day beer right up with Two Roads best.

I got a late start last after winning at bar team trivia, but I managed to at least get in a Two Roads / Lawson's Finest Liquids collaboration. Tonight, I plan to be a little more productive in moving along The CANQuest (tm), but still focusing on Two Roads.

From the CAN: "Tanker Truck Sour Series"; "Souring In Progress"; "Soured in Our Tanker Truck"; "Here's to taking the road less traveled, in life and in beer!"; "Two Roads is driving a tanker truck down a road less traveled with this Passion Fruit Gose (pronounced GO-zuh). We kettle soured this ale in our 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 a hint of salt to really bring the flavors to life, this tanker truck-soured gose is the perfect route to refreshment."

I did some, NO, a LOT of in-CAN agiCANtion before Crack!ing the vent to ensure that any flocculate was back in suspension. My C-Line Glug was rather heavy-handed, letting rather free-flow from the CAN & into the the awaiting glass. This caused the brief formation of two-plus fingers of fizzy, foamy, rocky, eggshell-white head with modest retention that finally became wisps. Color was a murky, turbid Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7). Nose was at once tropical fruity with a lemony tartness and a high degree of salinity. OMFG! I am not usually a Tart/Sour guy, but I like the saltiness of Gose which reminds me of being out on the open sea. I am a retired U.S. Navy sailor & Goses make me reminisce about having coffee on the fantail. I also have an affinity for tropical fruits since I subsisted on them at one point as an amateur boxer. Mouthfeel was thin, kind of watery, which is par for the course in the style. Boy, was this one ever tart from the outset! My lips puckered in immediate response, giving me time to CANsider it. Phew! The fruit was now identifiable as Passion Fruit, less sweet than other tropical fruits and a little tart on its own. The salinity was also at an identifiable level. Yum! Finish was salty, tart & very dry. This would be worth seeking out, IMHO. YMMV.
