The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose

Them CO Nights boys are at it again!!!

This week we try Anderson Valley Brewing Company's The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose Ale.

 

Holy Gose Ale

"With a bright, golden color and tight creamy head, the earthy wood undertones in our Gose develop into a light mineral aroma with a hint of lemon zest and tropical fruit. Before boiling, the wort is kettle soured with lactobacillus, imparting an initial refreshing tartness that gives way to a subtle fullness. Flavors of guava and peach are followed by a slight sea salt dryness and lemon sourness that is enhanced by coriander and post-fermentation additions of salt. The finish is dry, effervescent, and lemon tangy, reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze."

 

AND

 

Saison D'Etre - Mazama Brewing Co.

 

Mazama Brewing Saison D’Etre is an Oregon brewed Belgian classic. Aromatic and spiced in the true tradition with coriander, orange peel, juniper, berries and black pepper. It is dry and effervescent. Fruit and spice flavors balance with soft malt, making it suitable for any occasion.
