2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

At Borefts 2014. Hazy golden. Salty, sweet and sour all at the same time. This is something else. Fruity, lemonade, not a bad taste, but really weard.
