3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy gold with thin white head that doesn’t last long.
Nose like a drying tidal basin: salt water, flowers, earth. Adds a honey note as it warms.
A bit different on the palate, with salt present but only as an accent, and spices noticeable but mild, along with orange-lemon citric flavor that is lightly tart rather than sour.
Combined with a light body and low carbonation, the overall effect is restrained, but it’s a good third quencher.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 l draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Cloudy golden colour, minimal head. Taste is very refreshing, but nor really that sour, not Belgian sour or Finnish salty. Quite fruity. Very different for a German beer. Goes with pub food or just for session.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Amber, clear body, with a big, frothy, off-white head.
Aroma of coriander and other spices, fresh herbs, grass, salt, some sweet fruits.
Taste follows this, with some more citrus.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes soft, spicy, salty, fruity, a bit fresh herbal.
Nice one. Nothing special, quite average Gose, but refreshing and well balanced. Coriander is well integrated.

Golden hazy, white head. Smell of light malts, hints of lemon and yoghurt, some coriander as well, quite refreshing. Light sweet, some tart yoghurt, coriander, light salty, very refreshing, moderate sour acids. Well balanced off, quite enjoyable and a superb thirstquencer.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Ales of Europe: BBD 1st July 15. Poured into vase shaped Coors Banquet glass at home on 19th June 15. Misty golden body, carbonation bubbles rising up to a thin but full white sheet of foam as a head. Not a lot going on in the nose: even as the beer warmed, but the sourness certainly comes through in the mouth, with a cutting bite. Spiced feel to the flavour, might even pick up the salt content too. Different and most likely the best ’Gose’ I have had so far: which is not a large number.
