Description 

Our take on a nearly extinct German-style sour wheat ale. Traditionally brewed with sea salt & coriander, with unique additions of tangerine peel & apricot puree.  The result is a refreshing, slightly tart ale with notes of tropical fruit.

Silly Gose by Community Beer Co. was evaluated as a BJCP 2015 style 27 (Historical Beer - specifically Gose). The beer pours a hazy yellowish light gold with a big poofy head of tiny white bubbles that quickly fades to a thin layer. Initially, the aroma is quite tart with moderate earthy and minerally notes (minerality is common for Gose). Very light floral hops in the aroma, and hints of orange and stone fruit. The first taste is medium bread dough with hints of bread crusts, followed by the tart and minerally character (but not salty - Gose should not be overly salty), so a good balance. Very light floral hops and almost no bittering leads into a short fruity finish with hints of orange zest, moderate tangerine juice and light ripe apricot. The beer has a medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Well made and matching the style guidelines along with the fruity character complements. This would be a really nice beer with spicy corn tacos and salsa verde.
