Notes / Commercial Description:
For us, this Old World-inspired beer is mile zero - the point at which we faithfully spin the needle on the compass and follow at will. From the warmer climates of equatorial lands, this Gose takes its tropic inspiration. Brewed with tart passion fruit and flavor-brightening sea salt, Tropicmost Gose is a roadmap of the Southern Americas. Cheer to moving until direction is found.

Canned 7/28/18. Purchased as a single around August 15, 2018.
Hazy opaque golden straw. Nice Finger and a half head quickly dissipating to a scant ring. Spotty lacing.
Smells like sour pineapple, the passion fruit, salt air.
Sour tropical flavors, noticeable salt, faint coriander,
Light, watery, low carbonation, very faint astringent aftertaste.
There’s a lot of competition in the fruit Gose category. This one is a little light on the fruit and spice. Pleasant drinking, though, and I’ll try it again.

The CANQuest (tm) is rolling along in high gear as New Catch-Up Beer Sunday (Week 696) CANtinues in all of its unabated glory!

From the CAN: "For us, this Old World-inspired beer is mile zero - the point at which we trustfully spin the needle on the compass and follow at will. From the warmer climates of equatorial lands, this Gose takes its tropic inspiration. Brewed with tart passionfruit and flavor-brightening sea salt, Tropicmost Gose is a roadmap of the Southern Americas. Cheers to moving until direction is found."; "Keep it cold. Drink it fresh."

I may not be a huge fan of tarts & sours, but I have a special place for Goses! Y'see, I am a retired U.S. Navy sailor & it was during one of my first underway periods that I realized that I have an affinity for being at sea. I loved underway time & especially going out on the fantail after chow to take in the air. Nothing like salt spray to clear the sinuses & let you know that you are alive. Goses incorporate salt & the really desirous ones incorporate sea salt. Mmm.

Knowing that this beer was, at base, a wheat beer, I CANducted some in-CAN agitation before Crack!ing open the vent & CANducting an inverted Glug into the awaiting glass. It did not require any prompting on my part to form two fingers of fizzy, foamy, soapy, bone-white head with limited retention. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose was clearly the sum of its parts with both the passionfruit and the salt readily evident. This was tart, not sour, as evidenced by the unbidden pursing of my lips. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not much beyond it, either. I could really taste both the passionfruit & the salt & I would have had NO problem identifying this as a Gose! Tart, tangy, salty & oh, so refreshing on a hot, humid Summer's day! Mmm. I would not want a steady diet of it, but it definitely made for a nice segue into my next beer. Finish was light & dry, highly refreshing. Very nice!

Pours a light golden straw color, minimal head. Has a distinct passion fruit aroma - not bad. Has a pleasant passionfruit taste with a sour, tart finish. Bright and crisp, quite refreshing.

This beer pours a light golden color
It is quite murky. Minimal white head when poured from the tap. Some lacing on the glass.
The nose is fruity. Passion fruit, of course. A slightly sour aroma.
Taste is a bit fruity up front, then the sour kicks in.
For the ABV this beer feels as expected. Some bubbly feeling as it goes down.
Easy drinking gose. Glad to try it.
