What the brewers say

“Cactus adds a twist to the traditional Gose style. We stumbled across the fruit of the prickly pear cactus, native to California. This tangy fruit is a great complement to the tart and refreshing traditional Gose-style beer. Otra Vez combines prickly pear cactus with a hint of grapefruit.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate tartness up front with lemon and sweet fruitiness. Bubble gum, melon, and a little mint in the nose. Complex with some fruit character, and some vegetable, green stem notes combined with lemon and melon. Distinct and pronounced.”

Flavor: “Crisp melon mixed with bubble gum and slight salt character. Notes of a green stem combined with watermelon rind. Lower tartness than other Goses lets the complex flavors shine.”

Overall: “Enjoyable, with some unique flavor combinations. Appeared to get more of the green notes of the cactus stem than the sweetness of the cactus fruit. This would be a great introduction to prickly pear or sour beers. Nice herbal sweetness throughout the sip with a nice balanced amount of carbonation. Drinkable and different.”
