Very unique, a hazy pour with an off yellow head.
Smells of acidic sweet fruit.
Taste is salty, gooseberry and sour. A very different beer which I will be trying again.

Pours a golden opaque colour, with a slight head. Distinctive gooseberry flavour. Effervescent tingling sensation on the tongue. If you like gooseberries, you’ll like this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice refreshing and tasty beer.
Nice unclear golden color with a fine white head. Fine fruity and lactic aroma. Nice body for a beer at 4.1%, and an ok carbonation. A bit dry texture. Fruity (gooseberry I presume), lactic, pleasant mild salt and citric flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy peach pulp color, with a decent, froth head, providing a very stable coating.
Smells of salt, copper infused wild berries and dough bread malts among wet straw. A prickly fruit sourness opens up the aromas to the beer’s tart qualities, adding a vivid refreshment to the nose.
Drinks like lemonade, truly refreshing, amped up by the prickly berry sourness, which compliments beautiful to the style.
Tastes of a mix of currants and gooseberries, providing a crisp sourness, flawlessly blending into the beers light bodied yogurt tartness. A sweet note resulting from the fruits gets entangled into a profound, slightly spiced wheat quality, together with a pleasant saltiness. Its fruit qualities reach their peak right before the swallow, producing a lemonade reminiscence, finishing with sour lemon, toffee malts and a whiff of salt, together with slightly sticky, tart yogurt.
A nice approach to add something new to the style, while its lingering aftertaste exhibits all classic Gose features in a synergetic way, spices, hay, citrus and a light tartness provide the refreshing foundation of this.

Can from Cornelius. Pours cloudy gold. Aromas of tropical fruit juice and cereal but the gooseberries predominate. Same with taste, lots of sharp gooseberry flavour, though not quite as tart as I was hoping. Still, nice and mouth-watering nonetheless.
