Vacanza by Wild Leap Brew Co. was described as a “Tangerine Hibiscus Gose” and was judged as a Fruit and Spice Beer (BJCP sub-style 29B). In the glass it formed a thin white head atop a somewhat hazy reddish-orange brew. The aroma consisted of floral hibiscus notes followed by sweet citrus ones from the tangerine and a mild lactic-citrus tart sourness. The flavor profile also featured both sweet and tart contributions from the tangerine up front with the hibiscus in a supporting role. A hint of saltiness is detectable, as appropriate for a Gose. Malt and hop flavors were noted but not dominant.

The mouthfeel was characterized by a crisp light body, low carbonation and no astringent or alcohol warmth, consistent with the Gose style except for the carbonation. Overall this was a simple, tart, refreshing beer perfect for summer drinking.
