330ml can. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Weak, unspecific fruity aroma, some gooseberry at most, a spicy salty mineral touch. Taste is minimally tart, fairly salty, rather unspecific sour-ish fruity, hints of gooseberry. NIce salty spiciness, quite refreshing but slightly anaemic overall.

From a can in Chez Sophie in Shrewsbury. Hazy pale gold in appearance. Perfect level of carbonation. Lovely fresh aroma with fruity hints. Gentle on the palate, with only a touch of salt, and gooseberry sourness. Easy drinker.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy golden colour with small head. Aroma: honey, berry notes, pine, citrus notes. Tastes salty, sour, lime, wheat, I don’t really taste the gooseberry. Lively carbonation and slick feel on the tongue. Aftertaste is similar to salty nuts and bread. Very interesting combination of tastes and smells, well balanced. Enjoyable fresh drink.

Sample on tap at What’s Brewing BF, Stavanger. Notes of lemons, sea water, sea buckthorn (crushed berries) and gooseberries. Thin mouthfeel. Can’t say the berries improved a classic gose.
