Gose, is an unfiltered wheat beer made with 50% malted wheat, which creates a cloudy yellow color and provides a refreshing crispness and twang.

    *B.A. Redankulous is the last test batch of Redankulous before it became a Backstage beer in 2015, and won that nifty gold medal, and then aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels for 485 days.
