Almanac Beer Company Golden Gate Gose
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Almanac Beer Company Golden Gate Gose. I picked up this bottle at Cork 'n Bottle Liquors (here) in Fremont, CA. They have a great selection of craft beer as well as a number of beers on tap. Add Cork ‘n Bottle to your list of craft beer destinations.
From the Almanac Beer Company website: “Our Golden Gate Gose is inspired by the classic wheat beer hailing from Leipzig, Germany. Traditionally brewed with salt and coriander, our tart California-inspried version is brewed with San Francisco Bay sea salt, lemon verbena from Eatwell Farm in Dixon, and coriander grown and dried especially for us by Dirty Girl Produce in Santa Cruz, California. Fermented with our house saison yeast, this delicate and tart beer is a perfect summer refresher. Pair with fresh seafood and sunshine.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear pale yellow with a thick bone colored head and soapy lacing.
Aroma: Minerals, straw, citrus, coriander, saline, floral and a touch of sweetness.
Taste: Citrus, coriander, grainy and wheaty malts, salt and a touch of yeast.
Overall: Light and refreshing, Almanac Beer Company Golden Gate Gose is incredibly drinkable. This 5% ABV beer went down fast. Great mix of sweet, tart and salty. I would absolutely drink this one again.
