3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Refrigerated 12.7 oz. green bottle poured into a glass. Translucent orange with small off-white head which dissipated fairly quickly. Aroma is tequila, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is tequilla, wood, tart, and salty pickles. Alcohol is pretty well covered, flavorful, but is still a pretty heavy beer. Overall not worth he price.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from SL. Labelled "ale brewed with spice and matured in tequila oak barrels." I’m not a tequila fan but this was awesome. Poured into the tulip with a decent and lace-sustaining head, hazy orange color. Aroma of sour and vegetables and oak and alcohol. Drank smoothly, tequila mixed in with all the aroma elements, sawdusty oaky. Mouthfeel was acidic and velvety at the same time, nicely carbonated, salty in the finish. Very nice experience.

My Goseator was matured in Aquavit-casks, at FdB 2014. Smooth, slightly sweet. Hints of wood, not much sourness. The mainpart is fruity, intense, fresh, woody, dark-fruit-sour.
Very nice brew! 13/12/13/12

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 This is what an imperial Gose tastes like, its not meant to be good. It’s an experiment. Its full of salt and tartness to the max compared to the regular. Its very tart and crazy but not good. Its flatish its thicky-light. Its a mess but an original mess. I think I get a little tequila, adds a refreshing yet alcoholic aspect. Its a cool but I would never drink it again.

Thanks to Eugene for sharing - well, this is a strange beast - smells and tastes very strongly of vegetables (celery, root plants, cucumber, peppers) - surprisingly tart and only mildly sweet for the strength - some oak - the tequila is fairly evident - fairly soft and surprisingly frothy in the mouth for something so strong - fairly strong alcohol burn in the finish - moderately acidic, mildly doughy - strange.

Es hatte stellenweise Ansaetze, gigantoes zu sein. Zu Beginn brutal sauer mit echt heftigen Zitronennoten, danach mehr im Apfel, Mandarinen und gar Pflaumen angesiedelt. Alles in allem zum Ende mildsuess und beinahe sueffig. Classy.

Pours out in a hazy light amber colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of acid and nuts with some herbal hints. Taste of acid, sour fruits, thyme, coriander, herbs and wheat. Very complex and enjoyable. Nice one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and amber with a tiny, creamy white head. Decent retention. The aroma is an odd marriage of dill and mescal. Full-bodied with a dusty mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The lightly tart flavor features notes of dill and sea salt. Finishes tangy, raspy and fairly dry with a wee dash of sea salt. Odd bird, this one. Fortunately, I like pickles, tequila and salt, so I have no gripes. The high abv is not at all apparent.

375 ml bottle poured into English pint glass. Slightly hazy orange color with a thin finger of silky off-white head and a steady stream of tiny bubbles. Aroma is mostly oak and boozy tequila with some sour citrus. Flavors of salty peanut up front, transitioning into a tart yeasty middle and a tequila finish. This is the first Gose I’ve had. It’s unlike anything I’ve sampled before, and I quite enjoy it.
