HopDog BeerWorks Gose & the Pussycats
Brewery: HopDog BeerWorks
Format: 330ml Bottle
Gose (pronounced goes-uh) & the Pussycats is HopDog's new intercontinental Spring seasonal - a salt cured barrel aged South Coast Gose. Gose is an old German styled wheat beer that breaks the rules of the Reinheitsgebot being spiced and heavily salted. We took all the usual HopDog liberties with this style by employing 2 different souring techniques, upping the salt and coriander additions and aging it in an oak barrel cured with sea water - for extra saltiness. Spicy, lightly soured and salty, Gose & the Pussycats is brewed with a grist of 60% ale malt and a blend of wheat and rye, fermented with lactobacillus bacteria, a German wheat beer yeast. Light and zingy, perfect for Spring and Summer quaffing in alpha acids we trust. When pouring expect a rich head, which dissipates relatively quickly. While the beer loses carbonation it is still very refreshing.
