Devils Backbone Cran-Gose

The Goes style is really growing in popularity among craft beer drinks and I think will continue to does. It was a once forgotten German style of beer that has made it back from near extinction, and now brewers are experimenting with this style. Devils Backbone Brewing Company in Lexington Virginia brews Cran-Gose, 4.0% ABV. Cran-Gose is a Gose style brewed with tart Cranberry, and comes via Brewpublik ( Cran-Gose pours a pinkish color with a bright white fizzy head that doesn’t stay very long. The aroma is filled with light cranberries and a slight saltiness. The flavor is much like cranberry juice with saltiness to it that is a little tart but not so much as some cranberry juices can be. The base Gose on this beer is mild with not a big tartness as some and some good salted flavor, but the addition of cranberries to it helps make slightly more tart. The mouth feel is light with a nice tart finish with a tart cranberry finish with a slight saltiness. Cran-Gose is a refreshing beer and that gives it a B. Just not enough on the base Gose to really make this a great beer. Needs stronger Gose flavors. But it was not bad. I would have this again and so should you. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
