Beer Review: Urban Artifact Pinwheel

The Pinwheel from Urban Artifact out of Cincinnati, Ohio, is the latest ale for my next beerventure. This ale is a Gose that has an ABV of 4.5%., and estimated IBU of 12. The thing that I like about the Gose style is that nice saltiness that follows after the refreshing taste of the beer. This one does well on following along in that regard. You really get a nice essence of the kumquats used, as both the aroma and taste do come through nicely. The appearance of the ale is very nice in color and definitely makes for a nice beer especially heading into the summer. Check out my video review here to see all of my overall thoughts on this one. As far as a rating, my Untappd score for this one is 3.75 out of 5.

Brewer Notes:

Just as the virtue of perseverance is taught in martial arts, a pinwheel symbolizes turning your luck around. Be prosperous. Enjoy a Pinwheel.
