3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Olut Expo Finland 2014 as ”Amiata Marsilia Göse”
Aroma has fruity hops and perhaps some saltiness I would not detect without knowing. Flavour is a mixture of fruity hops and saltiness. Fruits come first and the salt in the finish. Salt takes over at the end of the glass. Not your typical gose, unusually fruity.

Draught @ OlutExpo 2014
Pours pale yellow with a smooth head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, citrus and fruits. Taste is salty, sweetish and fruity with some floral notes. Finish is salty, stuffy and slightly fruity. A bit unbalanced mix of hops and salty gose.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@olutexpo14. Pale yellow. Doughy, bakers yeast, light citrus, pale malty. Whoa. Pretty refreshing citrus. Bit bland, but sort of nice still. Really tart dry finish. Palate cleanser. Good between the stronger ones, but might get boring as such.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker type glass
Sweet malt, orange, perfume, grapefruit and peach. Pours a peach coloured amber with a voluminous frothy white head which quickly reduces. Taste is peach, grapefruit, wheat, pepper, a little salty and a little sour. A gose connoisseur I am not, mainly because I cannot find them very often, but I do enjoy the style and I think this a decent beer, but not a good gose.

Clear straw pour, minimal head. Aroma is prominent lychee and peach sweetness. Flavor is mildly salty and fruity. Incredibly easy to drink and tasty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Visual: Shrink-foil sealed in a heavy duty quality beer bottle. Pours almost clear-light cloudy golden faint yellow with a massive inviting foamy head, a decent layer of creamy retention, sticky lacing, lots of super-fast activity.
Nose: meyer lemon flesh and peel, minor tang. (6)-aromatic strength.
Attack: intense acidity, medium sourness, cream-fizzy mouthfeel
Mid-palate: (MAIN) sour meyer lemon (MILD) wheat, banana
Finish: almost salty, bitter citrus peel hops, lingering bitter-lasting finish.
Summary: I can discern that this an above average beer, but the style of sour wheat beer just doesn’t suit my taste. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)
