At Fieldwork Brewing Company they are all about experimenting and pushing boundaries. With their Petit Verdot Grand Gose they’re doing just that.
Traditionally the Gose is a low ABV wheat beer with a subtle tartness. What separates the Gose from other beers of this flavor profile was its birthplace along the Gose River which had a high saline content. As much as Fieldwork Brewing would love to be alongside a river, these days they add French sea salt to their Goses to give them their traditional burst of flavor and lactobacillus for that balanced tartness. Along with the sea salt, they added Petit Verdot grapes to utilize a fruit often only used in small percentages of wine blends. The grapes give the Grand Gose a beautiful violet hue and jammy notes of raspberries and boysenberries, delicate tannins, and a cranberry like finish.
Finally, this oversized Gose gets its grand name from its higher than usual ABV at 6.7%. Fieldwork Brewing Company excited to back its Petit Verdot Grand Gose to the Oxbow taproom. Whether you enjoy beer or wine, you’ll easily find a new love for the Petit Verdot Grand Gose.
