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.

Growler at home in London, picked up at Noble Fine Liquor. Pours very cloudy, pale yellow with a sturdy, frothy white head that leaves some snowstorm lacing. Funky lemon in the nose, hints of soured wheat. Light sweet flavor with lemony tang, mild lactic zip, hints of white bread, underripe peach. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Fresh, cleansing finish, hints of doughy white bread, some salty bite, very light funky tang, more flicks of citric lemon. Phenomenal stuff overall. Stupidly drinkable with nice nuance and lovely balance. The 500ml I had of this went way, way too quickly.

Growler from Noble Wines. This was so tasty that I killed it hobo style while walking to the Cock Tavern. Hazy gold appearance with a discrete head. The nose is bright wheaty lemon funk. Moderate tartness. Fresh, summery nose. The taste is wonderfully balanced sweet/tart fruits. Nice lemon and gooseberry. Sherbet hops. A bit of wheaty funk. Salty finish. Eminently drinkable stuff. Nice, light body. Fine carbonation. Overall, a great summery beer. This went down well, even on a snowy walk through the streets of east London.

Keggerator bottle from great grog. Cloudy golden amber with white ring of head. Aroma has some light yeast esters, little banana, very light funk, lemon and lime. Taste is quite fresh, citrus, lemon, little funk, little banana, wheat, some earthy yeast in the finish that lingers a bit. The palate is the star of the show with this beer, light, very dry, tart but not puckering followed by a very suble salty finish. Nice

[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Opaque peachy gold beer, with a thin lacing. Aroma is tart, green fruit, apple, with some floral sweetness. On the taste, tart bitterness as expected. Puckering gooseberry, green fruit, apple. Perceptible aftertaste of salt. Very unusual and really fascinating [19032013]

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 tap at the bat ..big murky hazy orange amber ... small white head ... soft mellow banana wheat nose... again the banan wheat up front ... soft funk... and tart lemon juice .. or is it indeed the tart goosberries ... light salty linger ..again too fizzy for me. Be interested to see this in cask but not sure it would work. Tap at the bat feb 2014...this version unlesd stu says otherwise... Light hazy amber.. Thin white lacing... Light dry zezty light funk... Light yeast nose... Dry zezty tart fruits.. Juicy sift... Light salty... Yeah this is why i like this... Very drinkable

Cheeky taste from the keg at Great Grog. Pours pretty hazy (though it’s still settling so that would explain that) yellow with a thin frothy white head. Really fresh nose - predominantly clean spicy lager hops, but there’s a hint of tart berry underneath, and a definite sour/salty thing going on too. Really a lot going on in each mouthful! A touch of crisp pils malt up front, quickly taken over by sharp gooseberry tartness, some lemony hop flavours too and just a hint of salt on the finish. Just enough spritz to keep the flavours moving - could be a tiny bit fizzier, but only a tiny bit. So, so complex, but amazingly refreshing at the same time, they’ve really nailed this one! Really, really outstanding.
