Notes: 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.

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 grainy yellow color with little to no head off a light pour. Smells like crackers and yeast, strangely no real sour or fruit flavor outside of a mild citrus smell. Taste is strong of yeast and bread, with a nice grapefruit taste. Not very sour or tart, and definitely don't get the saltiness of a traditional gose. Goes down pretty smoothly. Overall a nice beer that i don't mind paying $3.75 for a pint bottle.

SMELL: Strong sweet and tart passion fruit and wheat aromas are balanced by mild aromas of sour green apple and lemon zest along with subtle salt and earthy yeast aromas.
TASTE: Strong passion fruit flavors immediately envelop the palate. Unlike the aroma, the passion fruit is more tart than sweet. Mild flavors of sour green apple augment the tartness of the brew while mild wheat flavors establish some balance. More balance is presented as mild salt and lemon zest flavors trail while wheat grows stronger. Subtle earthy yeast flavors enter lastly as sour green apple flavors grow more tart and the sweetness from the passion fruit increases.
NOTE: What a great first from Wicked Weed. I love the Gose style. These guys' passion fruit spin on it was perfectly balanced. Some beers of this style tend to be too subtle in both salt and tartness, but this has just the right quantities. I look forward to trying more brews from them.
