Tonight’s selection is another beer that I picked up during a DC trip. Union puts out some solid beers and I’d never tried their gose. Goses have been increasing in popularity every year and they are super-drinkable especially in the Spring and Summer. Let’s crack this open and see how it was.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A dash of salt. A touch of tart. That’s what makes this unique German-style wheat beer a seasoned professional at serious summer thirst quenching. With its glowing golden color, peach & citrus nose followed by a prickly mouthfeel that leaves a gentle tartness and a dash of salt on the palate, the Old Pro never fails to bring you back for another sip.”
Random: This beer came in at 10 IBUs.
The beer poured with a three finger, white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left no lacing on the glass. The body was incredibly cloudy and bright yellow. I couldn’t see much carbonation due to the cloudiness. The nose was tart with lemon juice and lemon zest. The taste had significant tartness and lemon balm. It had some citrus segments, specifically lemon and lime. There was a light salinity to it as well. The body was on the lighter side with generous carbonation. The finish was quick with tartness. A can of this ran me $1.83, which came to $.15 per ounce. This was a solid gose that I would have no qualms about bringing to a barbecue.
