Near the middle of 2016, we acquired a truckload of freshly emptied tequila barrels from a variety of distilleries. After experimenting with barrel-aging beers we currently brew to assess the character that the barrels would provide, our brewing team decided to brew a German-style gose infused with lime peel to create Tequila Barrel Lime Gose.
Initially a draft-only offering in the spring of 2017, Tequila Barrel Lime Gose will soon be available on draft and in six-packs of 12oz bottles beginning in the Greater Kansas City Area on March 5th! Areas that typically see Boulevard seasonal beers like Flora Obscura Dry-Hopped Porter and Hibiscus Gose should expect to see Tequila Barrel Lime Gose in the coming weeks.
Pouring deep golden in color, Tequila Barrel Lime Gose presents aromas of oak, vanilla and caramelized banana with bright lime character transitioning to subtle tequila notes and coconut. With a pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity and hints of coriander and sea salt, citrus flavors mingle with malt sweetness to temper the acidity and touch of heat provided by tequila barrel-aging. Crisp and clean, Tequila Barrel Lime Gose, tapers to a slightly salty finish that begs for another sip.
