Batch 064: The Lazy Deer

by pj

064thelazydeer

I brewed my first ever Gose in September 2016. As I brewed, a family of deer laid in the ivy about 20 feet away and just watched me the whole time. Hence the name. At first the beer was excessively salty for my taste, so I pounded it with a bunch of Citra hops, which turned out to be a very nice addition. Very unique taste. Before the keg ran out I bottled 8 bottles and designed this label.
