Brewed by:
Two Roads Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States

Style: Leipzig Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

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.

L: Hazy, almost completely opaque yellow with a foamy white head that quickly fizzes away. No head is left, and there's no lacing.

S: Passion fruit juice, lemon, peach, orange, a little bit of salt and coriander and wheat.

T: Tons of sweet and sour authentic tasting passion fruit juice, with some lightly sweet cracker malt. There's also lemon tartness and peachy sweetness and a hint of salinity. Finishes lightly dry and leaves you thirsty for more passion fruit!

F: Medium-light bodied, nice carbonation. Feels smooth and wheaty.

O: An excellent gose and one of the best beers with passion fruit I've had thus far!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

On-tap 5/3/2017 at Pour Farm Tavern in New Bedford, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light cloudy gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains pungent malts, tart passion fruit and other citrus fruits and some wheat.

T: The taste starts out with a burst of tart and tangy passion fruit and other citrus fruits. Then some Gose-like saltiness quickly follows. Theirs is some mild breadiness from wheat and a light malt character that brings a little balance. The after-taste is slightly tart.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is very dry and slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, does not go down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely better beers available within the style.
