BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Off Color Brewing
Illinois, United States

Style: Leipzig Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Most brewers spend a lot of time and effort keeping lactobacillus out of their breweries; it was the first thing we brought in (it still has to stay in the corner though). We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer and the second is an overly acidic & funky beer fermented solely with lactobacillus. We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, it's hard to make.

This very pale, almost clear leipzig gose has only a modicum of flavor from the added coriander. But, if you're not a fan of that flavor, then this beer likely won't be the beer for you. I can take it or leave it; my wife, on the other hand, enjoys the flavor very much.

A - Pale gold, slightly hazy clear, minimal white head and no lacing.

S - Quiet sour grain, grass, funk, lactic acidity.

T - Follows the nose, stronger wheat flavors, undefined acidity, a hint of salt in the close.

M - Low carbonation, light feel, slightly tart finish.

O - Decent, well crafted Gose, quiet and unassuming, but tasty nevertheless.

Solid wheat beer. Solid color and aroma. First taste is without bitter aftertaste. Good taste throughout. Would buy again.

First gose for me, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Pours a cloudy straw gold with yeast sediment. First sip has a bit of tartness that leads into typical flavors of a witbier with the coriander quite apparent. Lemony, light-bodied, and a touch of salt is just barely apparent on the finish begging another sip. Very refreshing. Sourness and salt are both done with a light hand, and recede into the background as I continued drinking. Overall, I was a big fan of this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Belgian style snifter. Enjoy by 02 Oct 17

Appearance: Dull golden yellow body with a minimal amount of head.

Aroma: Tart sourness on the nose with some apple and lemon.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Apples, strawberry tart lemon and salinity on this one, super light body, crisp and refreshing.

Overall: Fabulous beer from Off Color. Just a real subtle beer with decent flavor, this one has more salt than most gose style beers and is really well done with the other flavors that come out.
