Two Roads Two Evil Geyser Gose

Posted: February 28, 2016 in Gose, Reviews, Two Roads Brewing Company

One of the cats decided to try to go in the fireplace. He managed to get his paws all ashy, which wasn’t fun since Val vacuumed today. Anyways, let’s talk about this beer.

geysergose

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Gose

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Two Roads and Evil Twin sourced local ingredients during a trip to Iceland for this collaboration including: Icelandic moss, rye, herbs, sea kelp, skyr (Icelandic yogurt) and birch-smoked sea salt to create a Two + Evil twist on a gose beer; a sour wheat-style ale with a hint of smoke, light lemon color, dry finish and thirst quenching appeal.”

Random: I can’t say that I’ve ever had skyr. I’d be interested to try it on its own.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was slightly hazy and straw yellow in color. There was light carbonation visible. The nose had more depth than I expected. There was some tartness, then a little funk and then brine. It also had light citrus. The taste started sour with lemon pith and then went into mild sweetness. There was brine as well. It also had some green vegetal notes that added depth. The body was on the light side with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with salt and tartness. A can of this was $2.00 and broke down to $.12 per ounce. I enjoyed this beer a lot and it had really nice flavor for a gose. I wish it had a bit more of the smoke that the description said it had, though.
