BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Virginia, United States

Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Never Aloha is a 4.9% Hawaiian Punch inspired Gose. For the salt addition on this batch we used Red Alaea Hawaiian sea salt. We added hundreds and hundreds of pounds of passionfruit, pineapple, mango, blood orange, and cherry purée into this one. We also salt baed in a small amount of Hawaiian Punch powder for good measure. It literally tastes like an adult tropical fruit punch.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Aroma has tropical fruits like passionfruit and papaya. Taste is sweet, fruity and tropical. Dry, easy drinking and refreshing.

Hazy papaya colored with a small head that fades and leaves little to no lacing. Aromas of adult fruit punch. Notes of sticky guava, cherry, pineapple, passionfruit, Meyer lemon, ocean spritz and orange. Light toward medium, puckering and dry but highly drinkable. Stunning, simply stunning. Easily the best Gose I've ever had and one of the best beers I've had.

Late March release, 2017. 16 oz can obtained in trade. Poured into Teku glass.

L: Almost no head when poured, what there is reduces to a thin ring in no time, no lacing. Beer is a hazy light pink, like pink grapefruit juice.

S: Tons of tropical fruit like pineapple, mango, passionfruit, and orange. Really does resemble Hawaiian Punch as far as I can remember. Light yeast and light salt/sea air on back end. Quite nice.

T: Seriously, so close to Hawaiian Punch, but fortunately not as sweet. Just tons of pineapple, passionfruit, mango, and other tropical fruits. Some lime peel. As I said, sweetness does not run away. Balanced by yeast and saline sea taste on finish, which likewise does not run away with sour. Nicely done.

F: Light to medium body, a tad more than most goses, but not an issue. Great construction melding the flavors together and great balance.

O: Fabulous fruity Gose. The Veil does not disappoint with its Never series.

I'm really torn on this one. The base gose is very, very good. The Hawaiian Punch taste throws me off. It does tsste just like Hawaiian Punch (with an appropriate hint of gose saltiness).

Straight to the point: this beer blew me away. It's one of those beers that you can't look at ratings because there simply aren't enough of them. I encourage you to seek this beer out and decide for yourself.

It has a beautiful color of cherry to it while keeping clarity (almost like they wanted it to look like fruit punch or something). The smell is entirely fruity guava. The taste matches the smell in the best of ways and the feel is super smooth (appropriate for a 4.9%). This may end up being a sleeper, but I seriously hope that I get to try this beer again one day.

Reddish-Orange color with very thing lacing around the glass. Smells strongly of mango and pineapple with a little sourness. Delicious fruity taste with nice gose tartness. Some bitterness in the aftertaste as well as a tart feeling. Like drinking tart fruit punch.
