Fruitlands Sour Tropical Fruit Gose
Today I'm checking out Modern Times Fruitlands Sour Tropical Fruit Gose, a beer that Total Wine brought to Miami in their Brewery Direct program. This beer came in a pounder can with a story to set your expectations with phrases including "frighteningly delicious" and something about a "fruit-filled asteroid." 4.8% alcohol. 17 IBU. Canned On 06/23/17.
Salty, tart, floral aroma with some guava sweetness. Salty flavors, lightly tart to start. VERY fruity! The passion fruit is actually the standout flavor throughout (with guava being mostly a nuance). Super juicy and tart work together perfectly! Perfectly tart too, with no pucker, just excellent tartness.
Salty aspect really makes the fruity elements stand out. Very refreshing. Great beer! Nice twang!
