Sole Gypsy Tears

Posted: March 28, 2017 in Gose, Reviews, Sole Artisan Ales

I was looking for a light beer to drink while watching a sportsball event at The Pour House, so I settled on this. Let’s see how this was.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Gose

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A FOOD INSPIRED BREWER IS BORN. Joe Percoco is a food nut. He has always strived to learn everything possible about taste. At very young age, before being able to work officially, he traded time in a bakery for pastries, sips of wine and an old Italian man’s stories. After working as a cook at multiple restaurants for actual pay, Joe began investigating where food came from by working on an organic farm in the Appalachian Mountains. He learned to drive a 70 year old tractor, how to raise pastured animals, and everything there was to know about growing a good ingredient. Not only did he learn about ingredients, but through cultivating the land with his hands, he also became aware of how sustainability keeps nature at its finest for the production of clean, beautiful food.”

Random: I could go for some berries and whipped cream.

The brew poured with a half a finger of pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was pink and hazy. I couldn’t see any carbonation in the beer. The nose was fragrant with blackberries and raspberries. There was a lot of yeast and a touch of sourness. The taste had even more berries. It also had a lot of yeast and wheat. I didn’t pick up much tartness on this, which was odd for a gose. The body was very light and the beer drank a lot more like a witbier than a gose. The body was thin with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with fruit. The beer was easy to drink, but it had none of the salt or the tartness that a normal gose has. I wouldn’t rush back to this one.
