3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Starts with some difficulties. Hard to get in the glass. Seems to have an high carbonation. But not a gusher. Anyway a nice unclear yellow color, and off course a quite bit white head. The head stays for a long time. Annoying actually in this matter. Nice fresh aroma with a fine intensity. Starts really well. Looks god and a fine aroma. The body feels a bit light. Mostly due to a to high carbonation. Fizzy mouth feel. A quite mild and balance flavor. Everything in harmony with each other. Wheat, herbal/coriander, citric and mild salt. Not very sour, and not very lactic either. Lovely stuff on a sunny afternoon. Just a bit to high carbonation destroyed a quite high rating.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden, average and quite stable head. Aroma is soft bready malts, gentle acrid notes (citrus) and maybe a flowery hint. Taste has a soft bready malts foundation plus salt and citric notes; it’s moderately sweet with distinct but delicate tartness and a quick refreshing finish. Body is light, mouthfeel is very easy and smooth but still quite lively. Pleasant, easy and highly refreshing

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival II 2016 (16 V 2016). This original Leipziger Gose came from the traditional bottle, of which I of course bought another one. I had already heard a lot of this archetype Gose beer, originated from Saxony. A kind of a Berliner Weisse (sour) with coriander and salt (spices). The sample looks dark yellow with a small white head. The nose actually is a dry white wine, with subtle peach flavours. The taste is flat, dry, soury, yet not too tart. White grapes, lemon water, evens some malts and lacto. A light bodied, perfect quencher. Glad to have had this one. The Gose in the different variations is more interesting though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Hazy gold with a negligible white head and a light but prickly fizz. Salt and lemon smell. Salt is in charge of the flavour too but not overwhelmingly so; there’s space for some light lemon, a touch of funky tartness behind and some spice in the finish. Maybe a bit thin at times and lacks the wow factor, but otherwise well balanced and refreshing- although with that usual gose marketing genius thing of the salt leaving you thirsty for more!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mostly clean, light yellow. Sweeter than expected malts, funk. Moderate taste, both fruity and dry, umami, developed. Odd style and this is a prototypical example, perhaps a bit sweeter on the nose. (At Libf 2016)
