Sun Smacked Gose
The Sun Smacked Gose is a German kettle sour. In this version we have fruited the beer with Haskap berries from Bokey Blooms Farms. Haskaps are a super fruit that taste like a tart blueberry and raspberry. The Haskap berries compliment this dry, lemony, sour beer. As a result, the beer is extremely refreshing and bright with flavours.
ABV: 4.2%, SRM: 3, IBU: 10
The story behind the name
One Spring Break we decided to head south and rented a beach house with some family in Galveston Texas. The beach, the local craft beer and weather could not be any better. We spent the entire day outside.
What we did not realize was that the sunscreen that we have brought with us had expired almost a year earlier, which apparently makes a difference as we had all been smacked by the sun and were as red as could be. The next day we took a break from the beach but we still managed to have a good time and consume lots of great Texas craft beer.
