Pirate Life Lime Gose 355ml Can
by Pirate Life Brewing
Built on a foundation of Pilsner Malt and Wheat, this modern interpretation of a classic German style acquires its definitive pucker from Lactobacillus – a bacteria that converts sugars into lactic acid. Whirlpool additions of Native Finger Lime elevate the beers zest factor, while a handful of Motueka hops, Murray River Pink Salt and fragrant coriander seed ground it stylistically. Once poured, it looks remarkably similar to a lime juice cordial, excluding of course the generous pillow of foam atop the pint. Kaffir Lime Leaf pairs with a gentle sourdough funk to form the nose, but the real excitement starts below the rim... On the palate, bright lime and lactic acidity are expertly balanced with a moreish and salty tang. It’s hyper crushable, with low hop bitterness and a clean, yet textured mouthfeel. The salt and sour explosion promptly fades, revealing notes of soft lemon curd and freshly baked croissant.
