3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gosa molto buona e dissetante, salata al punto giusto. Al naso e in bocca si avvertono anche abbondanti sentori citrici, aciduli, che ricordano i lambic. Leggermente fruttata.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The balance between the lactate, coriander and salt is perfect. But it is not as sour as the American versions that I love!

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Oh my, something went clearly wrong with this one. Lots of white, ugly floaties, almost no head. Smells like cheese-flavoured corn crisps, subtle lactic notes, minor malt and that’s it. It was hard to convince myself to even try it after the aroma turned out to be an abomination. Salty-sour flavour, light malty, minor fruit notes (apples, pears), coriander very much in the background. Again a prevalence of cheese notes, this time in the flavour. The worst gose I’ve tried by far and possibly the biggest disappointment in terms of beer that I’ve had.
