Boulevard Hibiscus Gose

What the brewers say

“A great introductory sour beer, Hibiscus Gose receives coriander and sea salt during boiling, then we steep dried hibiscus flowers at the end to create a vibrant pink hue (really, though, it’s pink!). The result is a tangy, sweet-and-sour ale with a refreshing citrus character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lemon-like tartness, fruity, with some berry-like notes of sweetness. Some malt sweetness in the back, with floral notes that are like a pleasant perfume. Light aroma overall with perhaps a touch of sourness. I would expect a bit of herbal or spicy notes.”

Flavor: “A well-balanced Gose that’s tart without being too tart. The slight salty character adds a refreshing balance to the residual sweetness and lemony tartness. The carbonation helps with the light sour and herbal note at the end of the sip.”

Overall: “Nothing in this beer was too bold, but it all blended well together seamlessly. The hibiscus notes of berries and tart lemon, with the malt sweetness, acidity, and salt character combined to make a clean and refreshing tart beer. Nice silk creaminess in the middle of the sip. An enjoyable combination.”
