Almanac Golden Gate Gose

Posted: March 22, 2015 in Almanac Beer Co., Gose, Reviews

This was one of the last beers that I had in the apartment. I will say that when you’re surrounded by boxes, it’s slightly depressing. It’s nice having most of them unpacked now, with the exception of our boxes of books and office stuff. Anyways, let’s see how this was.


ABV: 5%

Style: Gose

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our Golden Gate Gose is inspired by the classic wheat beer hailing from Leipzig, Germany. Traditionally brewed with salt and coriander, our tart California-inspried version is brewed with San Francisco Bay sea salt, lemon verbena from Eatwell Farm in Dixon, and coriander grown and dried especially for us by Dirty Girl Produce in Santa Cruz, California. Fermented with our house saison yeast, this delicate and tart beer is a perfect summer refresher. Pair with fresh seafood and sunshine.”

Random: This was my first beer from Almanac.

This beer poured with a two finger, thin white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy lemon yellow with light carbonation visible. The nose was tart with a lot of lemon and then some spice to it. I didn’t get any saltiness to it on the nose. The taste had light lemon with coriander and wheat. Again, no salt to it and very little depth. It was a very light with a thin body and high carbonation. It had a quick finish with lemon. The price on this one was $9.49, which broke down to $.43 an ounce. For that price, I could definitely get something better of the style. I wouldn’t have this again.
