Terrapin Watermelon Gose
A Terrapin beer without the turtle on the label? Yep! I grabbed a can of their Watermelon Gose earlier to check out. This can was awesomely decorated as a watermelon! A short description ends with "What gose 'round comes around!" 4.5% alcohol. Best By 11.24.16
Head was little and super fleeting! Watermelon sweet and briny aroma. Watermelon flavors come first and are intertwined with some lemon. Lightly tart, no pucker. Slightly prickly mouthfeel. Oh, and this is quite salty.
Watermelon flavors are nice and contrast well with the briny and tart aspects, but I honestly wanted a bigger watermelon flavor and more sweet fruity balance. I guess I'm just a (watermelon) lover! I pretty much eat watermelon every day for 8 months of the year! Anyway, nice beer and very refreshing.
