Keg at Taps beer bar, Kl. It pours cloudy pale orange with a decent fizzy white head. The nose is earthy, spicy, salty, wheat, grainy, light funk and plum skin. The taste is crisp, tart, salty, minerals, plum skin, minerals, umeboshi, lactic, decent acidity, light alcohol and citrus peel with a drying finish. Medium body and prickly, effervescent carbonation. Complex, tart and intriguing. In a bar in Malaysia drinking 7% sour beer by the pint and watching Wimbledon on tv. Fuckin awesome all round.

Tap at Molto as Plum Sour Ale. Cloudy golden color, fine rock head. Tangy, salty nose, umeboshi. Salty ume flavor, lightly sour, crisp and refreshing. Interesting and original beer, a bit strange for sure, but fun. More than umeboshi, tastes more like the sweet, salted plums you get in Taiwan or China.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark gold with a white head. I think there’s a plum aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is salt, plum, slight sour. Not a whole lot of plum. salty, fruity, sour is sort of accurate description. Rather different. Fair to call it gose. Works well with salty pretzels.

Tap at The Jeffrey as I was running errands. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Nose is salty and fruity. Tastes of tart underripe plums, sea salt, popcorn, earthy, wheat and some pepper. Interesting but a touch of odd sweetness and not enough tart to be really good gose.
