Drinkers seem to especially enjoy their sour beers in the west. Whenever we cast the net far and wide to put together our Best Of lists, you can be pretty sure a few beers with a tang and a pucker will be in the WA selection. For our Best Of 2018 – So Far list, that was the case once again, with Boston's Afterglose one of the beers highly fancied by panelists.
Pouring a deep pink that borders on red, this raspberry gose serves up aromas that are equal parts sour berry and salt, with some fruity sweetness and a sprinkle of creamy lactic funk for good measure. The first sip sets you up for something more bracing than many local gose, with those berry characters sticking around from dusk to dawn in what's a refreshingly crisp and sprightly affair.
