Woodstock. Raspberry Gose
To be honest, I felt like I overdid it on sour beers this year. As an increasingly popular craft beer style, every brewery now seems to have a version on the tap list. It’s a wonderful brew to enjoy in sunny weather, but unfortunately I got a little fatigued on the style, with many versions tasting very similar. However, when I was recently in upstate New York I decided to try one more (as it was sunny!). This particular one from Woodstock Brewing turned out to be marvelous.
Simply called Raspberry Gose, the beer pours a beautiful pink berry color. The aromas are subtle with a whiff of mixed berry and some sharp citrus. But when you take a gulp the flavors of raspberries wash over your tastebuds with a wonderful tart berry burst followed by some sweetness, and a cut of saltiness and lemon zest. It’s very well balanced, not being overbearing with the raspberry flavor nor the puckering sourness, but moreish and crushable. A Must Try Gose beer and one to reinvigorate my love for the style.
4.3% ABV | Phoenicia, NY
Description from the brewery:
A light kettle sour, conditioned on loads of Raspberries. A hint of salt amplifies the flavor of tart raspberry jam, and the coriander lends delicate notes of Lemon balm. Perfect for Spring and Summer.
