|Samuel Adams Verloren|
|6% alcohol. 15 IBU. Introduced in 2012. "A link to the ales of Saxony that have all but vanished, Verloren (translating to “lost”) is a peculiar yet captivating brew. This gose style (pronounced “goes-uh”), with its base of an unfiltered wheat ale, is light and refreshing yet also has a softness to it. Verloren’s flavor is brought to life by an unexpected touch of salt for a mineral quality, and coriander for a peppery spice. The result is an unusual and delicate brew that’s full of flavors to discover.
Our rendition of an old German style, Verloren is brewed with 50 to 60 percent malted wheat creating a fine haze, cloudy straw color, and crisp twang. The singularity of this brew however, comes from its soft creaminess, dry finish, and spices. The addition of salt creates a slight sharpness against the soft cereal character and enhances the other flavors around it, while ground coriander creates a peppery bite to enliven the brew."
|Review||Pours a hazy reddish amber with a foamy white head and moderate lacing. Nose of wheat, lemon, and apices. Medium in body with a light smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is wheat and lemon, along with those spice sin the aroma. Sour citrus finish. Interesting and easy drinking. Score of 6.8 for three and a half stars.|
