A collaboration brew with Kissmeyer Beer. A traditional German style Gose, flavoured with Gooseberries, Sea Buckthorn and Sea Salt. Tart, lightly sour, fruity and refreshing with a defined saltiness, excellent accompaniment to food.

Nische (1190) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
Keg at Bishops Arms Gamla Stan. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of lemon, floral notes and some light tartness. Mellow gooseberry taste with some lemon/lime/grapefruit and some tart red berries. Quite mellow, but very well tasting. Would be very interesting to see this one with some rhubarb added to it.

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 16, 2015
Keg @ Sheffield Tap [100615]
Light yellow, hazy, frothy white head, good lacing
Aroma of biting citrus, soft zest, soft gooseberry
Taste of soft pale fruits, some lemon, light gooseberry, soft tart, good flavour, refreshing
Palate - Medium carb, light body, bit oily, creamy, soft sweet. Finish as main flavour, light creamy (is there a dab of wheat in this?), soft light sweet malt, oh yeah - a hint of salt in the tail
Overall - Good stuff. I did rate the Lime version slightly higher at 3.9

Tap. Hazy yellow, medium white head. Fruity nose with lots of gooseberry, mild malt. Flavor is gooseberry tartness, mild malt, finishes with semi-dry notes, some more gooseberry tartness with mild hops and salt notes. Pleasant and nearly crisp. Very drinkable.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2015
Keg pour@Tilquin English Beer Festival V/2015. Smells like a duney seabreeze, subtle, with a fresh citric buckthorn edge. Taste on the pleasant tart side of air freshener fluffy, delicate gooseberry-like tartness and earthy berries against a good hop dryness. Dry, with a quenching aquateous core. Extra points for making this North Sea Germanic marine collaboration work.

visionthing (3616) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2015
Om tap at Toit’s, Tallinn. Hazy golden with a modest, white head. Fairly fruity aroma with notes of gooseberries, pale malt and salt. Moderate sweet with nice acidity, sour berries and a light saltiness. Refreshing and easy to drink. Nice one!

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
Draft @ Tilquin English beer festival, 2015. Dorée trouble presque orangée, col fin crémeux. Arôme est fruité, citronné et légèrement minéral laissant un rétro salin modéré. Palais est centré sur ce caractère très typique de Göse avec un agréable ajout salin qui donne une dimension minérale appréciable. Cette dernière compose avec un houblonné qui reste moyen et offrant une palette d’amertume noble. Fini reste amer et râpeux.

bhensonb (12467) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is unfamilar fruits - berry? Med body at least. Flavor is tar citrus, malt, and a salt impact. Actually I think it’s going "berry" with time. Finishes still somewhat tart and definitely salty. Nice.
