La Resistance Sour Ale is a German-style Gose brewed by The Larimer Beer Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, was served in a snifter from a can.
La Resistance pours a clear gold capped by an inch-thick head of fizzy white froth that bubbles away rapidly. No lace or residue is left behind following the reduction.
The aroma is soft but pleasant with a scent of tart citrus, yeast, and salt.
Sour yeast blends with tart citrus notes of lime and lemon peel while those flavors crest atop a grainy wheat spiced with coriander and salt. Finishes dry and puckering with a twist of lime. Doughy wheat sticks to the back of the throat.
Mouthfeel is crisp and light with its medium-light body and moderate carbonation.
The La Resistance Sour Ale is light, refreshing, and entirely approachable. Neither the sour yeast or its use of salt is overpowering. Instead, both ingredients are tempered nicely with wheat and spices. Larimer has brewed an enjoyable representation of the style.
It’s always nice to see a brewery giving back. A percentage of sales from this craft beer goes to Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.
