Rune (11120) - Tromsø, - FEB 12, 2013
Thanks to Chriso and fonefan for sharing a bottle at The BrewDog bar in Manchester. Cloudy amber, dissipating bubbly head. Tart and sweet aroma, hints of caramel and sour berries. Taste of tart berries, some spices and sour apples. Rather dough-like- Tart, sweet and dry ending. Possible to drink, however, rather disjointed in my book (25.01.2013).

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Deep chestnut brown pour. Aroma of tart grape and raspberry, flavor of fruit, salt, wood, and vinegar. Interesting,if a bit strange.

luttonm (4623) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2016
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.

Zlotta (2161) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
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!

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
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.

July 2014 at Chris’s Caspar do. Slightly sour. Warm. Slight toffee. Tart finish. Gooseberry. Pleasant.

NordicV (1946) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2015
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.

neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
(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.
