Tasting Notes – “Meeting Expectations – Two Roads Brewing Co. Rose Gose

This “Meeting Expectations” beer tasting was held at Bar Tabac in Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.

This is a French-style bistro. You are very likely to hear French spoken behind the bar and at the tables. The menu is traditional French Bistro style and the beers include Stella Artois (Belgium) and Kroonenberg (French) as well as three or four local brews.

This tasting is of one of the Two Roads Brewing Co. Tanker Truck Sour Series of brews.

It is a sour ale brewed with the addition of wine grapes to add color and flavor.

The Brewery tells us…

“Inspired by the great Rosé wines filled with floral aroma and refined notes of strawberries and raspberries.”
