A Note on This Beer
If you’re like me and need new things to talk about with your virtual happy hour buddies, the tart and refreshing Gose style has a really interesting story:
It almost didn’t make it to the 21st Century! This fruit and spice-powered German brew dates back to the 1500s, but had all but vanished by the end of World War II.
Still, one brewer passed on the old recipe to his stepson while from his deathbed in the late 1950s. But, with the continuing rise in popularity of macro beers up through the 1980s, the Gose style was repeatedly forced into obscurity!
Fast forward to today, and not only has the modern craft movement revived this centuries-old citrusy style, but Sour experts like the folks at Bozeman Brewing are keeping it alive and tastefully reimagined!
For today’s AndSoit Gose – Apricot, the brewers used Indian Coriander and Himalayan Pink Salt to coax out the style’s trademark tart citrus character. Then, they amped it all up to juicy excellence with hefty doses of apricots.
It pours beautifully orange and smells like ripe produce. And once you get a taste of its refreshing tangy-tart fruit flavors, you’ll be stunned anyone ever would have traded it in for a macro.
This beer is too new for the ratings!
