As ever, be wary of over-chilling your beer. More chill means less flavour. To learn more read my post on recommended serving temperatures.
Flavours to expect
I love a gose. It’s a fairly gentle beer style that originated in Goslar, Germany. It’s a top-fermented beer brewed with at least 50% malted wheat. This means it will display some lemon sourness, and usually be a little cloudy. Goses typically also have a herbal note and distinctive salty character. Hop bitterness, aromas and flavours are typically not prominent. This particular beer has been brewed with sour cherries, beetroot, pepper. To be honest I’m having a hard time picturing how that’s going to work out, but what I can tell you is that I’m excited to try the beer and find out.
Goses are great with lighter seafood dishes: try them with oysters, or some Thai shrimp with a sweet chilli sauce. You can go for rillettes or sausage, or something like an eggs florentine. For dessert a lemon sorbet should work well. This particular one, with all its out-there adjuncts, will call for something else. I think perhaps dark fruit and berries might work… perhaps a summer pudding?
