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.

Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a pale, hazy yellow, very small head. Aroma is grapefruit/gooseberry tartness, some lagery hops with a little bit of banana too. Taste is gorgeous - the salt and tartness hit you but neither are overpowering. Lemony notes are also there. Medium bodied, just right CO2 sparkle, and very refreshing. Such a complex but drinkable little beauty!

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2013
On Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Hazy orange pour. Aroma is light fruit, some sharp lactic tartness. Flavor is similar, but the salt just brightens it right up. Crisp refreshing tasty beer.

TimE (3184) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2013
Very hazy golden amber color. No head, salty wheat nose. Salty, carbonated, hay, dried fruit and leather notes exude in the mouth. Medium body, refreshing. Not as tart as I was expecting, but what balance and flavor. Very unique. Fantastic beer.

Beese (1784) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Draft at BrewDog Camden, London on 13 July 2013. Poured a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Grainy, slightly yeasty aroma with a hint of brine. Flavours of brown bread malts mixed tart gooseberry and other unripened fruit. A little of that brininess on the palate.

JohnRMurdoch (3286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2013
Keg @ BrewDog (5% abv). Hazy light brown, not much head. Leafy resin aroma. Rather weird bitter sweet chewing gum flavour. Sweet and dry aftertaste. Never had one like this before.

jredmond (5334) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Sampled at THE FESTIVAL 2013 in Maine with Andrew, Jay and Kramer. Pours a hazy goldne body with nice white lacing. Aroma is wheat, salt, light funky fruit and lemon. Mouthfeel is medium and super sessionable; notes of salty wheat, lemon, funky berries, light tartness and toast. Great.

Draught @ OT. Light and fruity. Not as sour as I would have thought. Small saltiness in finish. Refreshing dryness in end. Overall: Nice and easy, yet refreshing.

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap, 24/07/13. Murky orange amber with thin off white spotting. Nose is citrus, bitter orange, very light smoke, tarte berries, straw. Taste comprises orange pith, light tarte grapefruit, modicum of salt, farmy, a little damp wood and sponge. Light to medium bodied, fine carbonation with a little spritz befitting the style, crisp and refreshing on a hot summers day. Nice stuff.

Ordered a pint of this as virtually my first on arriving back to Edinburgh. I saw Magic Rock and imagined it would be some sort of APA or IPA and on trying it, immediately assumed it was a botched one. I wrote it off and quickly moved on. On discovering it was actually a style I had never even tasted or seen before, I realised I’d been hasty in my assessment. A similar thing happened with my first Lambic. I wasn’t prepared for it. Rather than commenting on the beer based on this experience, I went and grabbed another taste of it a few days later knowing this time what a rare and curious product it was and with my tastebuds prepared for it - right enough, I was able to appreciate it for what it was. A testament to the power of suggestion. Why should knowing what you’re drinking matter to the way that you accept the flavour? It did to me on this occasion. I didn’t love it second time round but I did at least appreciate it. Kegs at The Southern and Red Squirrel respectively..
