Grand Teton Brewing Gose

What the brewers say

“Brewed with slightly salty water, soured with Lactobacillus and spiced with coriander. Southern Idaho pale malt contributes crisp, clean maltiness while German pale wheat malt brings citric acidity and an attractive golden haze.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Mild and beery, with light acidic and spice notes. Some floral esters show through, and the lemon, grapefruit, and peach open up with a hint of salt. Hints of tart and funk, and no hops aroma.”

Flavor: “Surprisingly full body—a little too salty, but blends well with the mineral-water notes. The assertive hops flavor smacks into a pillow of soft sourness, accompanied by pineapple esters and a maltiness that adds a touch of sweetness. Lemon juice and a hint of lime zest play well with the hops notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine. The finish is dry, which accentuates the tartness a bit.”

Overall: “Enjoyable and satisfyingly rich, interesting and complex. Flavors flow from one to the other without any of them being overpowering or standing out. It’s a substantial, malty take on the style that’s well executed.”
