(Boston, MA) – BeerPulse has some additional information for two upcoming Small Batch Series spring releases from The Boston Beer Company. One of them is Samuel Adams Verloren Gose, among the first in its style to be released in bottles in the U.S.. Upon arrival, it will be the first time a Gose has ever been released so widely in the States. It is scheduled to ship at the end of April in 22 oz. bottles with a suggested retail price of $5.99.
A link to the ales of Saxony that have all but vanished, Gose is a peculiar yet captivating brew. From a base of an unfiltered wheat ale, it’s light and refreshing yet also has a softness to it. The flavor is brought to life by an unexpected touch of salt for a mineral quality, and coriander for a peppery spice. The result is an unusual and delicate brew that’s full of flavors to discover.
