The affinity that sour ale has with fruit is one of the best in all the beer world. Tangy, succulent and highly refreshing, Nowhere In Particular Brewing can't resist the temptation to give their German-styled Gose a kinship with black peaches for a unique and racy marriage made in ale heaven.

Batch #036, or better known as Black Peach Gose pours with a dark and rusty brown that hinges on cola color. Layering on top the beer lies a quick collapsing white cap that pops excitedly to reveal a rich and toasty peach perfume. Cider, citrus orchard fruit and a faint whiff of the sea drifts across the nose ahead of the soft malty sweetness of sourdough, cola, nuttiness and lightly toasted sweetness.

As the fruit flavors unfold on the middle palate, the full peach and lime characters take over. Peach leads the way with a close backup of orange, nectarine, papaya and apricot. Soon after, the citrus and cider steps up with its counterparts of green apple, rose wine and grilled lemon. Trending peppery and tart, a gentle earthiness of burlap offers a soft earthy note while the sea salt adds an off-salty roundness to the late palate.

Medium light in body and leaving a caramel and toasty track of sweetness, the peach acidity and fermented funk cleanses the palate somewhat, ushering in an off-clean sense of refreshment and drinkability with, an aftertaste and cola. The ale retains its peach flavor as its a cola infused taste on sangria or bellini.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned in 10/2019. Pours fairly crystal clear deep ruby red/brownish color with a small dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tarty/tangy peaches, fruit fuzz/skin/pits, lemon, lime, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape/wine, black sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, white bread, light peppercorn/lacto funk and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of peaches, fruity/acidic yeast, coriander, sea salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes with great strength. Taste of big sour/tarty/tangy peaches, fruit fuzz/skin/pits, lemon, lime, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape/wine, black sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, white bread, light peppercorn/lacto funk and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peaches, fuzz/skin/pits, lemon, lime, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape/wine, black sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, white bread, light peppercorn/lacto funk and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, fruity/acidic yeast, coriander, sea salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering tart/tangy acidity. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly acidic/tangy, and lightly sticky/saline mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is an excellent fruited gose. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, fruity/acidic yeast, coriander, sea salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth and fairly crisp/refreshing to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Mellowly lactic/salty. Great balance of juicy/vibrant peaches, Lacto complexity, coriander, and sea salt flavors; with a nice clean pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and impressively well made style example as expected of the brewery. Not overwhelming on any aspect.
