Try something new this Turkey Day: sour beer

A forgotten style just a couple of years ago, gose has made quite a comeback. It’s a tart, low-alcohol ale that features the addition of salt, which introduces a brininess that is strangely satisfying.

Gose beers trace back hundreds of years to Germany, but as American beer tastes have grown more sophisticated, brewers here have embraced the style, including Anderson Valley’s Blood Orange Gose.

It smells like a tart cross between Sweet Tarts candy and citrus, but with light, welcoming honey notes. As with any gose, the first and most identifiable taste is the sourness, but it remains relatively contained.

Gose is a wonderful food beer: bright, tangy and palate cleansing, but able to stand up to the richness of turkey, stuffing and all their friends.
