Sour Wheat Gose by Field House Brewing 

Oh fuck, we’re still on this sour train? I honestly didn’t think this trend would last as long as it has, but here we are. Sours are apparently a permanent fixture in the BC beer world, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Fuck you if you don’t like it! 

Took the words right out my mouth.

I only just started in to the Field House brews because they only just started popping up in the local beer stores, and they sell out fast. I wager that word got out that these guys make fuckin incredible beers. I have seriously not heard a single bad word thrown in their direction, and I’m thinking that next year, these guys will be usurping the Four Winds title of ‘best in BC’. You heard it first here folks! Unless you heard it first somewhere else, in which case, fuck that guy! Listen to me! 

GO PLAYER 1!

The pour is a murky straw yellow with no head, just a good sized collar. 

The smells are mild florals, pickles (lactobaccilus??) and something like sweet banana lurking in the back. 

The tastes are tamer than anticipated! It starts bold and salty, with the pickled lactobacillus type flavor. It drops off after that and goes in to the delicate notes, mostly florals and coriander with a hearty bread backend. What a wild ride. What a great sour! 

The mouthfeel is light and puffy. The flavors hit a fever pitch as described earlier, and leave a sticky tart and salt aftertaste. Middling carbonation here. 

4/5 What a peculiar, wondrous brew. It took me all around the world, despite never leaving the safety of my computer chair. Like sours? Don’t like sours? Recovering alcoholic? Fucking get one, now

Now.
