The WindThe Wind
Notes: Introducing our latest bottled beer, The Wind. The Wind is our classic Gose dry hopped with Citra hops and grapefruit. Some of you may have had this beer in the past as a cask beer. Well we liked it so much that we figured out how to bottle it.

Solid gose style beer with smells of citrus and grapefruit sour. Had this one from a can purchased at the brewery itself In Vermont. It’s drinkable and good.

Had it on cask. With room temperature you can reach taste the perfect balance between citrus and that sour tang. Nice beer with a great grapefruit tart. Well done.

On tap at Lost Nation Brewing in Morrisville, VT.

This one pours a light and slightly hazy yellow color, with a small head, and a litle bit of lacing.

This smells like sour and tart grapefruit, lemon zest, and light acidity.

The regular Lost Nation Gose is pretty exemplary, and this is a pretty fantastic variant. It's briney, like the base beer, but with a more heavy citrus aspect- mainly juicy and tart, with a lingering lemon acidity.

This is pretty light bodied, but super crisp and very drinkable.

Lost Nation continues to be one of the more underrated Vermont breweries.

Look, hazy, light yellow.
Smell, very herbal almost smokey smell (weird)).
Taste, sour up front followed by a long herbal, earthy, and citrus after taste,
Feel, almost chewy but crisp.
Overall, compared to what everyone else is saying I'm hoping this beer is old (though it just came out in my city), because I am struggling to drink this down,

Canned four months ago.

L -- Pours a lovely moderately hazed golden color with a two-finger eggshell white head produced with gentle pour. Great retention and some lacing -- much prettier than most goses out there. I've said it about all other Lost Nation canned offerings I've tried and I'll say it again here: the can design is second to none
S -- The citra character has held up well. Orange, grapefruit, lemon, perfumey floral, tangerine, bready malt, wheat, touch of sulfur
T -- The age of the can is more apparent here. Still has a good amount of hop character, but it's primarily woodsy,floral, and dried citrus peel. The lemony saltiness of the base gose is also apparent, but not as much as in their standard version
F -- Crisp and easy drinking. Light mouthfeel, highly effervescent
O -- My favorite gose to date. Still super drinkable and refreshing, but with the very welcome complexities of a citra dry hop. I hope this becomes more regularly available and I can find a fresher can to try

Pours cloudy white gold with a generous off white topper that ends as skim island and thick ring. some pretty lace remains on glasss.

Full aroma gose, with grapefruit, rounded tart, lemon, general citrus pith, overripe stone fruit, and light brine. As it raises to nose a few times I get hints of vinous.

Pretty faithful taste painting of flavors in aroma. Bright, strong, extremely well balanced, delicious. Nicely tart with complex display that doesn't overpower. Just briny enough.

Low carb. nicely soft on palate, very refreshing, light/med. viscosity, excellent finish.

Prob. my favorite gose, though LN regular gose is awesome too. Highly recommended.
