New Gose at Coronado Brewing Deserves a Rave
Coronado Brewing Company recently released a new beer they named, Wind Chime Key Lime Gose. I am here to rave about it.
Gose (pronounced Go-zah) is a style of wheat beer that originated centuries ago in Goslar, a small town on the banks of the Gose River, in northern Germany. Fortunately, the style has been making a comeback among modern American craft brewers. And luckily, Tyler Tucker, head brewer at Coronado Brewing’s brewpub, brewed a batch this month.
Wind Chime Key Lime Gose (5.2% ABV/4 IBU):
Appearance: Gold-copper color, slight haze, thin white head of tight bubbles; effervescent.
Flavor: Slightly sour, tart key lime citrus taste, sea breeze-like salt character, low bitterness, no hop flavor; acidity is balanced with the wheat malt.
Mouthfeel: High carbonation; effervescent. Medium-light body, but not thin.
Overall: Thirst-quenching, tart and fruity, with subtle salt character, low bitterness, and bright flavors; clean, dry finish.
Recommendation: Go get a pint!Share This:
