We aged a portion of our German-style gose in a Whippersnapper Whiskey barrel from local distiller Ransom Spirits. The result is a complex “sour” beer with a rounded finish and hints of coconut.

Bouteille de 750 ml, merci beaucoup à Marc. Arômes citronnés et de céréales. On détecte déjà un certain côté minéral au nez. Robe blonde pâle, effervescence moyenne et légère dentelle. En bouche, une base svelte de céréales accompagne une acidité lactique modérée et de belles notes minérales et salines. Belle impression citronnée. Le passage en fût de whiskey demeure très discret. Finale légèrement acide et minérale. Une merveilleuse bière estivale.

Bouteille verte de 750 ml partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal. Arôme: Odeur de citron avec une pointe de coriandre. Apparence: La couleur est blonde très pâle voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréale et de citron avec une pointe salée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement salé. (Rating #4996)

My Bottom Line:
Coriander-laden salt and citrusy acidity converge in this fluffly, highly drinkable Gose.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty pale blond.
-Tartness is minimal. This is more of a delicate, spicy and salty brew.
-Barrel character is very limited, which is not much of a problem to me.
-The lime and coriander sausage I ate with it was absolutely perfect.

750 ml bottle; dusty yellow with deep haze and creamy white; chewy aromas of cucumber, lemon, white, sugar and salt; wow, texture and mouthfeel is so perfect windy a balance between a stale sweetness and creamy vegi quality; fresh, lemony poopy aromas are fresher with a new pour; light, complex and creamy; a nice reminder too of the fun afternoon spent at Breakside last month

750 ml bottle shared by Tim by way of bvc. "barrel-aged gose" hand written on a Breakside Brewery label. Pours a piss yellow color with a small but long lasting head. Aroma is strong coriander and citric heavy lactic. I am loving it, right on the money. Flavor is much less citric and an easygoing, pleasant, mild lactic brew. It is so damn drinkable with a good level of carbonation, active but not too strong. I wish I could drink this all the time.

750 ml bottle sent to me by bvc. "barrel-aged gose" hand written on a Breakside Brewery label. The pour is a yellowish green, lightly hazed, with a smallish white head. The aroma opens as urinal cake initially, clears fast, then shows a soft natural salt, coriander, lemon citrus, and some warming bready grainy. Just a touch of tannin shows the barrel, but really not much wood character at all in the nose. The taste is a delicate blend of the bready grain, the soft salt, and the light citrus of the nose. Flavors are all fresh and vibrant, really natural tasting. The palate is light medium bodied, bright, prickly carbonation, and a clean salty finish. Nice - a highlight of this session. I had worried a barrel may kill the subtlety of the Gose, but it was nicely managed. Thanks Brandon.
