Sierra Nevada Otra Vez


Sierra Nevada Otra Vez Gose-Style Ale: Given that Gose, a classic German wheat ale brewed with salt and coriander to create a sharp tartness, often gets served with a shot of raspberry or fruit syrup, it’s not too surprising Sierra Nevada would have some fun with its latest release. Turning to California classic flavors like prickly pear cactus and grapefruit, however, makes this a Gose with the Central Valley up its sleeve.

A lovely light yellow, the ale hides its hops and features that typical tang of the wheat and yeast, but then picks up floral notes and those citrus sweet (that is, far from too sweet) grapefruit. On the finish there’s just a hint of the saline, but of course salt makes you just want to drink more of this pleasing session ale (4.5% ABV).
