Sierra Nevada Otra Vez

Posted: June 18, 2016 in Gose, Reviews, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

One of the other things that Val and I did while I was working out of LA was going to the Getty Museum. The views from the Getty were ridiculous. The museum itself was nice, although didn’t have as many exhibits as I would have thought. We spent about half a day there, and I’m glad we went, but I don’t feel the need to go back anytime soon. Let’s talk about something that I would like to have again…today’s beer.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: Gose

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “On our search for the perfect warm weather beer, we wanted something light bodied and thirst quenching, yet filled with complex and interesting flavors. 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 for a refreshing beer that will have you calling for round after round. Otra Vez!”

Random: I’m curious to see how many breweries come out with goses this year.

This beer poured with half a finger of white head that dissipated instantly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, light yellow color with light carbonation visible. The nose had some lemon juice and a touch of cactus. I didn’t pick up salt or anything overly tart. That taste had cucumbers and dill pickles with some lemon juice. Unlike the nose, there was salt in the taste, but it wasn’t overwhelming. The cactus came through with some grain. It had a light body with soda-like carbonation. This went back quickly and easy to drink. For $1.50 a single ($.12 per ounce), it’s a great deal too. I would recommend grabbing some of this, especially now that the hot weather has come.
