Southern Tier Cherry Gose

What the brewers say

“The finished beer is a striking, lustful shade of red with a persistent white head and durable lacing thanks to the large portion of wheat in the grist. The nose is defined by equal parts bright lactic acidity and cherry notes with a hint of coriander. On the palate, the strong lactic acidity is accentuated by the natural tartness of the cherry juice.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “The aroma is delicate, with notes of cherries, both in the fruit and in the sweetness. Beautiful color of bright pink. Faint tartness sits in the back. Very low malt, no hops, and some light funk—the cherries and sweetness open up as it warms.”

Flavor: “Delicate. The fruity cherry notes are present with some nice sweetness, but not overly sweet. Tartness complements the cherry-pie notes and may be a bit overwhelming rather than supportive. The carbonation is good, and it finishes dry with light sour and cherry.”

Overall: “Great showcase of cherries with some tartness and sweetness—it’s a good blend between the two. The heavy carbonation plays up the tartness and the big cherry notes, plus it’s a very pretty beer that’s so nice to look at.”
