It is nice when you find a beer that fits the very mood that you are in. You just close your eyes and feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, the cool breeze from the wind on your cheek and the cold ripple of the liquid moving across your lips and into your mouth. Beer is good!
This is the sensation of having a Two Up Two Down sour gose by Commonwealth Brewing Company (2444 Pleasure House Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23455 Voice: (757) 305-9652 www.commonwealthbrewingcompany.com) this evening at High Side Craft Brewing. All I am missing is my honey.
The Two Up Two Down is a ABV of 6.8% with a murky gold color. The aroma is a sour lemon with a slight hint of grapefruit and nectarine. The taste is more of the same with sour coming through on the lemon and grapefruit at first and then comes the nectarine and it finishes up with an apple. The tail end is smooth. The mixture is really well done and more sour goses should try to emulate the mixture that Commonwealth has formulated. It is really good.
The Two Up Two Down will take you back to those heady days of summer. The taste is light and fruity – just a nice reminder of why you ordered a sour gose. Sit back, you and your honey, and watch the sun going down with this great beer easily within reach. That is what summer is for.
