3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deeper hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, wheat, floral and faint brine. It smelled a little funky but I attributed that to the salt. Taste is sweet with some light bitters, I did not pick up any saltiness, it was more tart. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Interesting, the aroma did not match the taste.

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.

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.
