New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale looks to expand “Tart” series

New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale

New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale is a future bottle potential by the Colorado/North Carolina based brewery. 

Some of this beer name should already be familiar to you – “Tartastic”. A year ago, New Belgium debuts Tartastic Lemon Ginger Sour. It looks like the series is going to grow in the near future.

New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale is brewed with raspberry and lime purees, that play on a what we assume, a kettle soured base ale.

Brewed with raspberry and lime purees for an irresistibly playful sweet-tart sip that’ll put a smile on your face every time.

The label artwork alludes to an expanded “Tartastic Fruit Series” that might grow in 2018. New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale will be a 12-ounce bottle and draft release.

The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: Sour Ale (w/ Raspberries. Lime Puree.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: TBA

Texas brewery creates a Ramen Noodle infused ‘Cup O Beer’

Collective Brewing Project Cup O Beer

We’ve all been there. You’re down to your last dollar and you’re hungry. Then you see the price tag on the Cup O’ Noodles and all of a sudden you’re back to baller status. Last time we checked you can buy about 40 of them for a dollar.

Cup O’ Noodles, known by college students (and beer writers) the world over, is now officially in a beer thanks to Fort Worth, Texas based The Collective Brewing Project.

RELATED: Rogue brews stout with Sriracha Hot Sauce

The base beer is a tart/sour gose brewed with ginger, lime, lemongrass, and seaweed-cured sea salt. Let’s not forget the star of the show – 55 pounds of Ramen Noodles. (Which probably set the brewery back around $7.50.)

Collective Brewing Project Cup O’ Beer debuted in June, but the beer is still showing up at bars and events around Texas.

Style: Gose (w/ Lemongrass. Ginger. Lime. Sea Salt. Ramen Noodles.)
Availability: 500ml Bottles
Debut: June, 2017

Rum & key lime-y Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top returns

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top can

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top drops in about two weeks, slamming two styles together in one canned package.

It seems like key limes have found almost overnight success in beer. Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top has them in the base gose, plus 15 year old Nicaraguan rum barrels. Brewery founder Brad Schell told Beer Street Journal last year of his excitement to find such great rum barrels.

“They smell like being drunk on a beach or being a pirate.”- Brad Schell, brewery founder

The base beer is a gose brewed with sea salt and key limes, then aged in the rum barrels for over three months.

The result? A bold beer. There are a few key lime flavored beers running around out there these days. While some just taste a little citrusy, Bright Ass Tank Top doesn’t let you forget what it is. A rum filled gose that is full of key lime juice. You can’t miss a bright as shit tank top walking by you. You won’t forget this beer either.

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top is available once again in 16 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Gose (w/ Sea Salt, Key Limes. Barrel Aged. Rum.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.

Distribution: NC, SC, GA
Latest Return: June, 2017

Top Gun Beer: Second Self Margarita in Gose

Second Self Margarita in Gose cans

We honestly aren’t sure what we drink more of around the Beer Street Journal office – beer or margaritas. This new Atlanta release makes choosing a little bit easier. Second Self Margarita in Gose debuts June 1st.

Let’s address the most badass fact about this beer, the Top Gun theme. Second Self now has a “Top Gun Series” of beers, that started with Maverick & Gose last year. That beer is back in the skies (shelves) once again with an updated recipe. Since you can’t pull off an inverted flying maneuver without a partner, Second Self Margarita in Gose, aka “MIG” is here.

MIG mimics taste of a margarita thanks to fresh orange lime juice and Florida orange peel. Those flavors, plus a touch of salt makes this gose margarita/beer  hybrid. Shots of tequila might make the perfect compliment. The choice is yours.

Second Self Margarita in Gose is available starting June 1st in Georgia and Alabama.

Style: Gose (w/ Lime. Orange Peel. Coriander, Sea Salt.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 6/1/17

4.3% ABV

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose hits taps

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose, a new barrel-aged sour ale, is showing up on on tap handles.

In mid-2016, Kansas City based Boulevard Brewing acquired freshly emptied tequila barrels. After a style debate on what would go into the wood the brewery settled on a German-style gose.

Aged with fresh limes, Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose smells of oak and vanilla. According to Boulevard expect:

…a pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity and hints of coriander and sea salt, citrus flavors mingle with malt sweetness to temper the acidity and touch of heat provided by tequila barrel-aging.

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose is a draft only offering available in the brewery’s entire footprint.

Style: Gose (w/ Limes. Barrel Aged. Tequila.)
Availability: Draft Only
Debut: May, 2017

5.9% ABV, 15 IBUs
