Beer Review 37 // Super You by Grimm Artisanal Ales

Breaking out a beer from further afield today. Picked up in a Boston on a recent field trip to the states. So let's get drinking!

Details

Name: Super You
Style: Gose
Brewery: Grimm Artisanal Ales
Country: USA, Brooklyn, New York.
Price: $10
ABV: 5.3%

Commercial Fluff:

"This is the first time we’ve experimented with pineapple, and wow what a delight this beer turned out to be. Slight coconut-like character from the oak combines with the pineapple on the finish for a distinctly pina colada-like effect. Tart, vivid, and refreshing, this is the perfect summer crusher."


Own Opinion

Sight: Pours a hazy cloudy yellow, capped with a solid white head that slowly dissipated.

Aroma: Straight away pineapple hits you, the sort of tangy smell you get from a can. Alongside this comes some citrus (orange, grapefruit), smells delicious.

Taste: Tart citrus and pineapple upfront. Followed by the oaky wood and sea salt. I'm also getting a yoghurt taste from it but not sure if it was just me. Good carbonation that helps lift it all as it drunk.

Would I buy it again? Yes. It was delicious, so easy to polish of a bomber of this with ease. The flavours are bold without being overpowering and it just left you wanting more. Downside it's a little pricy for me especially at the speed I could drink it at. But truly an A+ beer.
