3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes 03/2010. Enjoyed on tap at Brugge Brasserie, returning from a roadtrip. Served in a branded pint glass.
A cloudy, gold ball squash yellow with a one finger white head. Some lacing.
Never having had a gose, I didn’t really know what to expect. This smells of a twangy wheatiness, some lemon zest, and sweet apple. In the mouth, Bad Kitty is crisp and delicious. It starts off sweet and lemony, which is complemented by a lactic tartness and underwritten by its refreshing wheat backbone.
Medium-light body with a decent bit of carbonation, which fits the bill.
A very pleasing beer. I drank this one more quickly than I would have liked, and it complemented the food well. Bad Kitty is a refreshing, sessionable gose, and I hope to find more like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler brought to the BASC release courtesy of Josh and Jacqui - thanks, guys! A gose, huh. Wouldn’t have guessed that but my lack of familiarity with the style certainly explains the seemingly disjointed impressions I had of this one. Hazy gold pour with crisp carbonation, a pleasant effervescence on a warm evening back in August. Faint barnyard funk and intense citrus in the nose, but there’s an odd addition, almost a mild Thai fish sauce thing happening. That slight dankness carries over into the taste, trending happily towards the apple end of the taste specturm and picking up some faint spice along the way. Interesting and more inviting as you drink more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the RBSG Grand Tasting 2010. Pours cloudy yellow, thin head, no lacing. Nose is tart peaches, hot tin, banana, wet socks, barnyard. Flavours of lemon, cold cream, wheat. Different, ultra-obscure, but oddly very pleasant. This one really grew on me, and after initially giving it a 3.3, I slowly increased my score as time went on and I found more and more in this one. A sleeper.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of tart cherry, sour apples and vinegar. Appearance is cloudy gold with white head. Flavor matches the nose with some raspberry notes as well. Palate is bubbly. Almost reminded me of a mixture between a sour ale and a framboise.

(draught at brewpub) pours cloudy yellow with no head or lacing. Nose of cereal grains, tart citrus fruits. Taste of funky cheese, cider vinegar, and lemon juice. Nice tart finish that could use a bit more carbonation.
