Drifting in just in time for the warmer weather is BentSpoke Brewing Co's latest release, How's It Gosen?
It is, you guessed it - a gose.
Originally, the mineral-rich river Gose in eastern Germany provided the brewing water to create the salty profile, with the sourness coming from the yeast and lactobacillus (the same culture used in yoghurt).
Gose is traditionally brewed with coriander, but in keeping with BentSpoke tradition, brewers and co-owners Tracy Margrain and Richard Watkins have bent the rules of beer by adding fresh mango and passionfruit into the mix.
"We were thinking of summer and our favourite things, like eating a pavlova at a barbecue with friends," said Tracy. "Richard and I are big fans of gose, especially in the summer months, and we've tried to capture the essence of an Australian summer with this latest release."
"We've kept this one at 4%, making it sessionable and refreshing, with a good kick of salt and a fresh fruit finish that makes it perhaps just a little bit too easy to drink," added Richard.
