Victory KSQ Kiwi Gose

Awhile back, Val and I took my parents to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square for a concert. Before we went there, we stopped at Victory for a late lunch and this was the first beer that I had.

ABV: 5.2%

Style: Gose

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Kiwifruit (often abbreviated as kiwi) or Chinese gooseberry is the edible berries of several species of woody vines in the genus Actinidia. The most common cultivar group of kiwifruit (‘Hayward’) is oval, about the size of a large hen’s egg (5–8 cm or 2.0–3.1 in) in length and 4.5–5.5 cm (1.8–2.2 in or in diameter). It has a fibrous, dull greenish-brown skin and bright green or golden flesh with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds. The fruit has a soft texture and a sweet but unique flavor. It is a commercial crop in several countries, such as China, Italy, New Zealand, Chile, Greece, and France.”

Random: The Kennett Square brewpub is perfectly done and the food is amazing.

The beer poured with a finger and a half of very thick, pure white head. It took awhile to dissipate and left limited lacing on the glass. The body was very clear and yellow in color. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with lime juice and brine. I didn’t pick up any kiwi in the nose. The taste had a significant amount of salinity, along with lemon and lime juice, which made for a nice balance between sour and salty. There was some kiwi to it, but it was in the background. The body was on the lighter side and the carbonation was significant, but pleasant. It had a quick and citrusy finish. I enjoyed this beer a lot and it paired well with wings.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
