Another great fruited sour from Nightmare but it really didn't stand out maybe because it wasn't really sour or sweet just in the middle? Don't know what Lulo or Soursop is but it's in there. Cool cover art regardless!

16 ounce can into a stange glass. Canned 12/15/20, had 4/22/21.

Pours a cloudy, pale yellow orange, with a big, quickly dissipating head on an average pour and some foamy lacing. Aromas of mango, malt, some citrus- maybe orange, light funk, hint of lime, light caramel as it warms. Smells somewhat sour, has a little bit of a berry aroma. The flavor is also somewhat sour, with mango, citrus, some salt, light malt, lime mostly in the aftertaste. Also has a little bit of a berry like taste, with a touch of bitterness on the finish. Smooth, a good lighter body and for all the carbonation up front with the big head, it drinks a little flat.

Can’t say I had a good feel for this one. I wouldn’t know a soursop if you handed it to me. I have had a beer that was fruited with only lulo, which was good and way more sour than this. Here, the mango was good, the lulo didn’t stand out and the lime and salt were hit or miss. Liked this overall, but it’s not as solid and complex as the other offerings I’ve had from Nightmare.

Delicious gose! Mango taste up front, lime zest aftertaste. Not overly sour, would make a nice excellent margarita!

Corona Day #68

Price: $5.99 at Clinton Gourmet Corp. in Manhattan

Appearance: 4 - a pale yellow-orange. Not much head, but pretty good lacing.

Nose: 4 - not a ton going on, but what is there is extremely busy and fruity.

Taste: 4 - not bad at all, but nothing special. Mostly lime. Really not very sour.

Mouth: 4 - tingly, but not too bubbly.

Overall: 4 - more innocuous than cromulent. An approachable sour.

-Gose ale soured by mangoes, lulo, soursoup and columbian lime zest.

A: Beautiful hazy sunset orange has a feverish pitch of effervesce within, composed of micro-bubbles that were densely packed. The head is a thick and beefy, a solid foam structure of 2.5 inches high with some clumpy bonding and texture. Head stability is strong, well lasting, always leaving something for coverage.

S: Big nose of tropical pineapple-mangoes. Some fruity watermelon and juicy lime juice interact with a smooth orange-citrus juice like flair of good strength. Very well lasting, evenly balanced, and very wet and fresh in nature.

T: The flavor delivered on all the aspects and expectations of the nose. Big smooth sourness, tropical pineapple-mangoes are fruity and slightly tart. Notes of juicy watermelon and lime combine as well. A softness of wheat malt and citrus, bring a nice feel and flavor along with some sour oranges that follow. A juicy tartness that was very well balanced and portrayed.

M: Good fullness, sharp crispness from the alert carbonation, has a very smooth feel none the less. Fruity sourness sting on the tongue.

O: Overall a Gose that hits that Goldilocks zone in terms of sourness and balance. Big juicy tropical tart flavor, with a citrusy-lime zing and sourness on the close. Great first impression from the start with a strong finish as well. Outstanding drink-ability, nose, and flavor combine to make this a must try by style and an outstanding mention all around.

Pours a hazy straw colored yellow. A half finger of head. Dissipates quickly.

Nose is tropical fruit and sour funk. Not too strong. Not very impressive.

Taste is mango, funk, and other indistinguishable things. I'm a bit out of my element with the various things in this brew. Definitely get the lime zest. It leaves a distinct residual bitterness on the pallete. A mild bready malt profile.

Mouthfeel is classic gose. Sharp, lively, bubbly, refreshing.

For a 6 dollar can, I can't say I'm too impressed. But I've heard good things about Nightmare, so I'll give their IPAs a chance and see what comes of it.
