Draft at Laschet's.
Strange gose/doppelbock hybrid, aged in tequila barrels. More of a strong sour ale.
Murky dark brown, lasting foam and surface coverage miraculously. No lace but that's to be expected.

Intense honey aroma, not far off from Polish mead.

Taste is a little jarring, maybe too complex for it's own good. Barrel is noticeable, sweet agave honey segues into toasted dry oak, tart lemon, finish is a little slick from the agave. Full bodied and boozy. Low to medium carbonation. Overall an unusual, inharmonious beer that can be still be appreciated with an open mind.

I personally love gose style beers. This one is a nice one, though not as good as I was hoping. It's got that saltiness that I was looking for but that agave doesn't fulfill the taste I was hoping for. That said, it's not a bad brew. It's just not as gose as one would hope for.

This is the strangest beer I've had in a long time. The sourness of the gose combines with the tequila barrel in such a bizarre way I could swear I tasted something sweet like vanilla or light chocolate. Maybe it's from the oak. I didn't detect and alcohol burn. I wouldn't drink this one all night, but it was definitely fun to try! Give it a go, if you come across it.

Possibly the worst beer that I've ever had. If you like vomit, rancid grapefruit, and cheap tequila, this beer is for you!

Pours pale gold, with a bright white head. Aromas of rotting grapefruit, cheap tequila, vomit, and rubbing alcohol abound. The flavor starts off with a nice wave of sourness, followed by vomit, wood, cheap tequila, and artificial citrus. It honestly made me gag.

Beautiful orange-gold color with extra nice white fizzy head. Aroma is earthy with hints of agave. The aging in tequila barrels really comes through in this one. Nice Gose, just a touch to grassy for me...

07-05-15--*had on draft--menu listed 10.5% ABV

Was not a big hit for the table. Too heavy on the tequila to display the refreshing gose qualities.

08-02-15--on draft, ABV listed: 9.0%

This one aged in aquavit barrel...better than the tequila version, still too sweet, not enough salt

An unfortunate/expensive choice from Bittercreek (Draft from the '15 FunkFest)... I knew better.. Why did I bite? Tickers gone tick. :-)

Fairly clear amber brew... Nose is agave and perfumy oak... Stewed fruit... Terrible. Flavor is the same but with an unexpected hot garbage wretch in the middle.. thick apricot and caramel malt with agave and bad tequila.. Thick with little carbonation triggers my gag reflex just thinking about it..

No redeeming qualities.
