Description 

Reminiscent of a classic cocktail, our GT Gose showcases botanical flavors and aromas of lemon peel, juniper, lemongrass, and grains of paradise.  With juicy lemon-lime tartness and slightly peppery finish, we've given the gose style a unique spin that we're sure you'll enjoy.

This beer pours deep gold with a light haze, and a fine, white persistent head. The aroma is moderately tart with a hint of lemon zest, and a light peppery character that emerges as the beer warms. A light bready maltiness and moderate briny character also develops in the aroma. There is significant tartness in the flavor with moderate brininess, lemon zest, lemon pepper and a hint of green honeydew melon with a suggestion of bready malt. The tartness is fairly dominant. The main flavor characteristics seem at odds with each other and compete for time on the palate, rather than create synergy for one another. This beer has promise but needs better balance.
