Style: Leipzig Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

better than other fruited goses i have had from these guys in this series, i liked this one a whole lot. lighter than some have been, and with a way cleaner lacto souring profile too, i think the natural tartness of the passion fruit brings out the best parts of it. i like that the sour profile has some flavor this time around. a lightly hazy very bright blonde brew with an inch of head on top of the globe from the tap. aroma of fresh and real passion fruits, cut open and jelly-like, seedy, and sweet tart. wheat based and clean on the malt side too, but with enough beer character that its not just fruit juice. just a touch of funk too, but not yeast driven, passion fruits just have a little weirdness to them, and its flatting in the light but balanced tart brew. expert on the intangibles too, killer carbonation, finishing dryness, and showcase of a simple malt base. smart beer, seems to me an improvement over the others in this series from an objective quality standpoint, but its also one of the first i have had on tap, so there could be something there. impressive overall, two roads is taking over, but i have no problem with it, the beers have been excellent! the best of their sours so far i would venture to say!

The hazy light yellow beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/2” fluffy white head that recedes slowly but visibly to leave a web of patches and legs of lacing on the side of the glass. Eventually the foam becomes a tiny ring of bubbles around the glass and a thin island of foam on the surface. Sipping creates lots of small patches and legs of lacing on the side of the glass.

The aromas include lots of passion fruit, some wheat and some malt, a bit of acidity and the touch of the sea.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with lots of passion fruit (think kiwi, pineapple and a bit of banana), some wheat and malt, some light tartness, a touch of sweetness and some light but easy to notice saltiness.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and a bit prickly with the moderate carbonation. The medium length finish begins as the wheat, the malt and the passion fruit begin to fade to a semi-dry, semi-salty and lightly tart ending.

Overall a drinkable enjoyable Gose with a nicely fruity character that also showcases some light tartness and saltiness. I could see having this one again.

Pours a chill haze golden yellow with a white cap that quickly recedes. Nose is a lot of tart passion fruit. Sip is dominated by passion fruit with a lot of tartness that mimics the actual fruit. As it warmed, I occasionally got some hints of the underlying wheat beer which integrated well with the fruit. Overall, this is a nice refresher with some excellent passion fruit flavor. The level of tartness is just a touch high for me and would prevent me from having more than one in a session.

Had on tap at Brewport. Looks and taste the part of a Gose. I don't get any obvious fruit in the flavor but there is a bit of nondescript sweetness. This beer is super tart and very sticky in the mouth. It's a bit overkill and I could have used some more passionfruit, but overall a nice summer thirst quencher. I think it needed a bit more dryness or carbonation to mop up how sticky this beer ended up as.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that faded away, leaving only a minuscule ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of passionfruit juice are present in the nose along with notes of sourness.
T: The taste follows the smell and is mostly dominated by flavors of passionfruit juice along with notes of sourness and a bit of saltiness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a nice strong dose of passionfruit in the smell and taste.

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
