So here it is folks! My very first beer review. I have reviewed dozens of wines in the past since I am a self proclaimed wino. At this point in my life I wouldn't be surprised if wine hasn't replaced the blood flowing through my viens. However, I have been yearning for change lately & after much thought decided that change would be diving into the beer world! Craft beer is trendy after all & I have to see what all the buzz is about ;-)
Honestly I do struggle with beers. If it doesn't taste like like water (mic ultra) or like candy (Hard Rootbeer) I usually make one hell of a goofy face taking that first sip. So these beer reviews are for all of those out there like me! You love the idea of craft beer, but need to work your way into them. Keeping my fingers crossed beer is like wine & the longer you drink the stuff, the darker the drink in your hand gets!
This is Southern Tier Cherry Gose! Of course I had to pick a cherry beer to pop my beer review cherry! This brew is one of the latest releases from the Lakewood, New York based brewery which just happens to be a 5 minute drive from my house.
Now let's talk nerdy! The gose style hails from Germany. At least 50% of the base beer is brewed with wheat, plus adjuncts like salt and coriander. Most goes-style beers are around 4 to 5.5% alcohol by volume.
Southern Tier Cherry Gose incorporates tart cherry juice in an imperial edition of the style. The brewery’s home state of New York ranks 4th in the United States in tart cherry production. A unnamed grower near the brewery provided the cherry puree.
Cherry Gose is soured over the course of three days using Lactobacillus buchneri, a strain of souring bacteria.
4 out of 5 stars!
Not a bad brew at all!!! However, the name can trick someone that isn't a big beer drinker. Taking my first sip I assumed I would get a huge tart cherry taste, but the tart cherry was definitely the last thing you tasted when sipping. Kinda reminded me of what a tart cherry sour patch kid would taste like! Sour then sweet :) I should also note again TART CHERRY! I love tart cherry and knew that was the taste I was looking for when sipping the brew, but hubby was surprised to not get a jolly rancher cherry taste.
Cliff Notes Version Of Post ~ Yes, buy this beer! It's yummy & this craft beer newbie likes it! Definitely a drinkable beer for non-beer folks! Xoxo

I can't stand any kind of beer but this sounds interesting. I wonder if i can find this or something like it here (I'm in Canada). I will be on the lookout! My boyfriend loves beer, not sure if he would like this but he'd probably try it. I'm so curious now. I love cherry, it's my favourite flavour.

I would have never thought it would be sour looking at the labeling--you are right! Hubby and I love cherries, so maybe we'll have to give this brew a try!

My husband loves this German cherry beer, but it's pretty much impossible to get around here. I will have to see if I can get some of this for him!
7/21/2016 12:48:17 pm
This has me intrigued. I like tart cherry things so I think this would be fun to try.
7/21/2016 01:00:43 pm
I absolutely hate the taste of beer but flavored ales like this have always had a special place in my heart :) I look sour drinks and think I would be a big fan! I'll have to try it~
7/21/2016 02:55:43 pm
Oh wow. That sounds delicious! I've had apple ale, but never this before. I can't wait to try it out!
7/21/2016 04:34:14 pm
This sounds really nice. It's great that it's brewed so locally to you too!
7/21/2016 04:56:16 pm
My husband and I love a good cab! This beer sounds decent, too. The cherry gives me a thought to give it a try. I'm not too much a beer fan, though.
7/21/2016 05:09:36 pm
This looks like a great beer! I'm not much of a beer drinker, but I really want to try this one now :)
7/21/2016 05:10:03 pm
While I can appreciate the craft beer culture, I'm not really a beer drinker myself. I much prefer wine too, but I love reading about all the different beer varieties companies develop.
7/21/2016 05:14:21 pm
I typically don't like flavored beers because they tend to be too sweet, but if this is tart I should give it a try. Thanks for the review.
7/21/2016 05:17:35 pm
This sounds like a beer I would enjoy. I will have to see if I can find it in my area.
7/21/2016 06:08:41 pm
I was kind of hoping this beer tasted like a cherry. lol. But I do like the idea that it has a tart flavor. Sounds interesting.
7/21/2016 06:35:21 pm
I have not tried this craft beer yet! I love trying new beers, it's fun to see how different breweries put flavors together.
7/21/2016 08:43:49 pm
GIRL! I hate beer. Like a lot. My husband always wants me to have one with him and I just can't. Now THIS looks like something I should try!
7/21/2016 09:56:30 pm
I don't really drink much alcohol, but this is really interesting. I love cherry and that tart cherry flavor is something that I enjoy. It would be nice to give this a try.
7/21/2016 10:49:28 pm
I’m a beer drinker so I’m all about trying new beers. This sounds absolutely delightful and delicious especially on a hot summer day at the pool or even a family cookout. Would love to try this and your description makes it sound all the more appealing. I hope to see you here on the beer side more often! ;)
7/21/2016 11:18:08 pm
I am not a beer fan, but if you gave it to me and not told me it was I would be open to tasting. The color is fun and like a cheery cola. Great posts.
7/21/2016 11:56:45 pm
My God! I really need to try this beer. Cherry is an amazing flavor!
7/22/2016 12:53:20 am
Not a beer person either but I will try one here and there. I bet this cherry gose would be delicious. Can't wait to try it for girls night out!
7/22/2016 01:20:35 am

7/22/2016 01:45:01 am
As someone who's used to the natural taste of beer anyway, I've always been looking out for a drink like this! I like the cherry tarts thing, it sounds like it's really meant for taste.
7/22/2016 07:34:01 am
These sounds so amazing, I need to tell this to my hubby
7/22/2016 09:20:19 am
I like a cold beer on a hot summer day, one of the few times I actually drink. I am not into flavored beer but this sounds interesting. I'll have to tell my daughter since has gained a love of Root Beer tasting beer, she might like this
7/22/2016 09:39:00 am
I am not a big beer drinker but the tart cherry has me intrigued enough to try this if I can find it! The bonus is that if I don't like it my husband will "HAVE" to drink it all. He will be thrilled.

7/22/2016 11:12:28 am
This is the first time that I heard this and it's so interesting to me.
7/22/2016 11:16:59 am
I don't really mind drinking beer and it would be nice if it had a kick of cherry! This sounds amazing, I don't think I've tasted anything like this before.
7/22/2016 11:36:44 am
I despise beer, but this sounds delicious actually! I would try this..and probably like it ;-)

We aren't beer people but this sounds amazing! It looks almost like a juice or something. I will have to look for this!
7/22/2016 11:55:09 am
This is a new brand for me but wouldn't mind to try this at all. Sounds perfect for my taste!
7/22/2016 12:54:30 pm
I do not like beer at all. I can't even get past the smell of it. This though, this looks like it would taste amazing and delicious.
7/22/2016 02:56:07 pm
I personally don't care for beer. My husband enjoys it occasionally. I'll have to share this with him.
7/22/2016 03:44:57 pm
That sounds like a really good drink. Cherry is one of my favorite flavors too. I'd love to try this out sometime.

I wish we have something like this in our country. I heard that cherry-based drinks are yummy.
7/23/2016 01:10:39 am
I'm not a big fan of these types of beers because they are usually too sweet for me, but your description and review make it tempting to grab a six pack and give it a try.
7/23/2016 03:29:12 am
I like to try this drink. I hope I can find this in our supermarket here in our country. Sounds yummy!

I am an absolutely non alcoholic person.But your review made the Beer sound so delicious, I would probably taste it to find out whether it matched the description.
7/24/2016 04:19:57 am
A beer made with tart cherry juice sounds really tasty. I don't drink beer as much as other drinks, but when I do, I tend to go with beers like that…with a fruity component.
7/24/2016 02:04:53 pm
I've never tried this before but sure would like to! Anything cherry is absolutely delicious. :)
7/24/2016 06:23:37 pm
Oh dear! I hate the taste of beer so that is one thing I don't think I could review and be fair...LOL
7/24/2016 10:51:00 pm
Cherry beer sounds interesting! I'm not much of a beer drinker at all but I like trying new ones lol
7/25/2016 09:11:04 am
I am also not a big beer drinker, so from the sounds of this one it would be a good option for me. I love a sweet taste to my alcoholic beverages.
