BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Victory Brewing Company - Downingtown
Pennsylvania, United States
victorybeer.com

Style: Leipzig Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
A bold and bright step outside the norm, the flavors of a unique, old world German brewing process excite your senses with the sharp and sweet burst of fresh cherries. Effervescent and sublime, this session ale has an enticing cherry-fruit character. European tradition and American ingenuity come together in the truest sense as you Taste Victory in Kirsch Gose.

Pours a ruby to light red with white foam. Aroma of fresh sour cherries with flavors of tartness, intense rounded cherry character, and a refreshing salty character. Crisp carbonation and light body are both combined into a thirst quencher.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. complicated code toward the bottom of the bottle. a clear bottled on date would be more helpful.

hazy dull reddish orange body. small white head dissipating to a thick ring and covering, leaving decent lacing.

slightly musty cherry aroma.

salty, fruity, faintly spice taste. the combination is nicely balanced and quite pleasant. even a little floral.

mouth is between medium and full. finish is slightly dry and salty. there is also a very faint curdled taste which fortunately doesn't last long.

overall, a pretty pleasing and refreshing. well balanced. will have to pick up some for the hotter summer months. it should really hit the spot then.

Poured into a small chalice: color slightly hazy ruby, head is made up of fine bubbles and presents about 1/2 inch thick and then dissipates to a top with some lacing.

Smell is lightly tart, then some wheat and light funk.

Taste follows, with tart cherry flavor, some light wheat, and low level saltiness.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderately carbonated, just enough fullness to notice the salty component.

Overall a great spin on the gose style with the added sour cherry.
