A delicious aroma of caramel, fruit and a hint of tequila. Pours a hazy amber color with a lasting white head and moderate carbonation. Taste of fruit and caramel with a hint of tequila. Medium body with a tequila finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Mekong. Pours golden with half an inch of white foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Fairly prominent tequila notes on the nose along with some wood from the barrel. Kinda sweet on the tongue along with some wood notes on the tongue. Finished clean. I can't say this is really a gose but it's still flavorful.

0.33 l draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. Ruby-Brown colour no head at all. Well, this looks like brandy. Aroma is alcohol, i.e. brandy. Well, taste is also reminds me brandy. You can actually taste the grapes, which aren’t there, since this his aged in tequila barrell. Ha, ha the great mysteries of brewing. Oh, yes this, beer. And it is from Germany, not from Belgium!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
An unfortunate/expensive choice from Bittercreek (Draft from the ’15 FunkFest)... I knew better.. Why did I bite? Tickers gone tick. :-)
Fairly clear amber brew... Nose is agave and perfumy oak... Stewed fruit... Terrible. Flavor is the same but with an unexpected hot garbage wretch in the middle.. thick apricot and caramel malt with agave and bad tequila.. Thick with little carbonation triggers my gag reflex just thinking about it..
No redeeming qualities.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
4 or 6 oz pour at B Side. Poured a very cloudy yellow color with a thick, creamy white head. Aroma was lots of tequila, light lime. Not a lot of salt here. Booze. I had a refreshing tequila barrel gose a week ago that was pretty amazing and this one wasn’t that. Whoever thought a 10.5% gose was a good idea is totally crazy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2 year old bottle. Quickly fading head atop the murky dirty river amber pour. The aroma is without comparables in the world of beer. It is for one very complex and amazingly provides a handful of words which, after 10k beers tasted or so, I do not remember using before. Highly vegetal and spicy nature which brings about notes such as jalapenos, green peppers, celery, sage, oregano, green tea, white Pepper, banana, salt, earth... Phew and the mouth provides more of the same weirdness. The beginnings of oxidation are no hindrance at all in this green and gently liquorous flavor profile punctuated with soft wooden tannins. Fascinating and possibly an incredible partner for the likes of Cuban or Mexican food. But it’s made out of Germany of all culinary places.. what a world we live in. The 10.5% ABV is nowhere to be found, the slight heat which caresses the throat at the end of every sip is the only hint and does not suggest double digits. Moderate acidity, sweetness mostly limited to alcohol level in spite of a medium body. Not something I would want to drink anywhere close to regularly, but horizon expanding and therefore an absolute must try for anyone who reads RateBeer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicely done gose with a well-integrated barrel aging. Takes away some of the edge that goses usually have in the way of saltiness and tang but makes for a interesting and well-rounded beer. Pours hazy golden with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish. Tap at Churchkey.
