Bottle in Amsterdam, at Marko’s. Quite red, basically no head. Interesting red fruity, candy aroma. Tart juicy body, rich-intense gose mouthfeel. Tart and ‘salty’, drying mouthfeel. Tannic red wine, cranberry. Odd, but glad I got to try! Touch of calvados too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in November 2012 (three years old). Clear, medium amber with almost no head, just a thin, frothy, quickly diminishing, tan layer. Sourish-sweet aroma of spruce honey, toffee, raisins, tea leaves, rhubarb and dubbin. Sourish-sweet taste of spruce honey, rhubarb, caramel, raisins, tea leaves and dubbin, followed by a short, slightly tart and minimally warming finish. Medium body, slightly oily and lightly astringent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Really interesting, surely with indications of the typical Gose-ish taste and acidity, but also with a distinct malty sweetness comparable to a light barleywine. Nice to try this one!

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from De Bierkonig, Amsterdam. Pours completely flat (De Molen carbonation surprise!), but an inviting redish caramel orange clear colour. However, even with my broad definition, it’s a bit of a stretch to call this "beer". Mega salty warhead acidity, almost overbearing. Super flat (why can’t Molen beers ever have normal carbonation) yet thick, and syrupy. Cough medicine. Smooths and sweetens up SLIGHTLY in aftertaste, mango/prune flavor. WTF.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brun, lätt dimmig öl med ett mycket lätt beige skum. Doften är vinös med inslag av karamell, vanilj och trä. I smaken så ersätts det vinösa med lite mer mjölksyrelika smaker. Sältan är mycket tillbakadragen. Komplex och god öl.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 6 2015) Pours an orangish brown with a tiny ring of white head. Aroma of caramel and sweet/sour white grape, lactic, a bit of fruit basket, a salt character, vanilla. Palate is surprisingly lactic despite all the caramel at first. White grape and lightly candied apple. Asian pear. Vanilla oak. Some salt hinting at first with lactic. Finish has a mix of caramel and white grape skin with lingering lactic acid. Medium full in the mouth with almost no carb. What an unusual beer. Not at all what you think of as a gose, for sure. Tons going on, maybe too much really. I don’t think I’d like to drink tons and maybe it needs some conceptual streamlining, but really interesting and not bad.
