Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) has announced that Tequila Barrel Lime Gose will begin its Seasonal run on March 5.
Originally released last year as a draft-only offering, Tequila Barrel Lime Gose came to be via a bit of experimentation after Boulevard Brewing “acquired a truckload of freshly emptied tequila barrels from a variety of distilleries.” After testing an assortment of base beers in the barrels, the brewing team decided to try something new and brewed a German-style Gose infused with lime peel to see how it would interact with the tequila barrels. This move proved to be a success and the Gose emerged from the barrels boasting “aromas of oak, vanilla and caramelized banana with bright lime character transitioning to subtle tequila notes and coconut.” Clocking in at an easy drinking 4.2% ABV, the completed Tequila Barrel Lime Gose hits the palate with “a malty sweetness . . . balanced by tart lime and hints of lively tequila, tapering to a slightly salty finish.”
Tequila Barrel Lime Gose will officially release in the Greater Kansas City Area on March 5 and 6, and it will then enter expanded distribution shortly thereafter. You can expect to find this Seasonal brew available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Missouri and any other “areas that typically see Boulevard seasonal beers like Flora Obscura Dry-Hopped Porter and Hibiscus Gose.” Prost!
