Pours a very hazy yellow with a smallish head.

The aroma is rosewater, yogurt, mild salt. It’s nice smelling, but I’m amazed at how rose-water like it is.

The flavor is more tart fruit, it’s mildly sour & a little lemony. The lactic twang is well employed here. There is a mild floral flavor as well as a little bit of salt.
Wow, there’s Sea Buckthorn in this, neate!

Draft @ When Pigs Fly. Aroma is wheat, pale grain and sea salt. The flavor has a nice wheat and malt backbone with a lightly salty finish. Thankfully the salt is subtle. Nice light lingering tartness to balance the salt, refreshing balance. I was nicely surprised by this brew. If your a fan of Gose, it is a must sample.

Marduk (3533) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 6, 2015
Tap @Speakeasy. Cloudy light brown color. Small size, white color, stays. Wheat, fruity, ginger, sweet, jammy aroma. Messy aroma. Sour, red currant, berries, bit salty, wheat in taste. Wheat sour salty aftertaste. Bit messy, but refreshing at the same time.

Kauge (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2015
Tap at Speakeasy by Põhjala. Hazy translucent orange colour (I think). Head not long-lasting, not much lace. Slightly acidic on the nose with mellow sourness. Later as it’s warm, I get some gooseberry-like tartness. Tastes like some nice watered down apple juice with added sourness. Not nearly as salty as I expected it to be - to be honest, I hardly feel any saltiness at all! Some disappointingly faint gooseberry tartness and minimal sweetness... I love sea buckthorn but I don’t get any of it here... Light body (almost watery) with mild CO2 and dryish mouthfeel. Had my first Gose (by Del Ducato) a week ago and aboslutely loved it - this one here is a disappointment.

Keg (Speakeasy, Tallinn)
Pale straw, cloudy, with a scummy head. Very dull aroma, just a bit dusty, maybe a hint of peach. Smooth full palate, but with some fizz that just stops it from being actually slimy. Water, minerally, a bit of dirt. That’s the taste in a nutshell - pretty crap to be honest. Some berry sweetness. Guessing from the name this is pretending to be a Gose. I don’t particularly like gose. But this makes the ones I’ve had seem good. Where’s the wheat? Where’s the lactic acid? Where’s the salt? Where’s the gose? Nope. Not gonna bother finishing the glass, life’s too short for bad beer.

This poured a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was light berries, wheaty grain, light lemon limy brettish character. Flavor was similar, lemon limey, salinity, some berries. Tasty.

Garrold (2252) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Tap. Brewhouse, Sheffield. Cloudy, dark yellow. Bubbly, lasting, white head. Fruity, yeasty, and bready. Citrus. Lemon sherbet. Ripe gooseberry. Taste is dry, light sweet. Palate is crisp, and slightly tart. Super refreshing. Finishes light dry, and crisp tart. Any salt is at the end, on the lips. Could drink this all day.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Orange color, but taste is a bit of salt and pink lemonade. Lightly tart and sour. Different.
