A 4% abv Gose style beer, brewed with grapefruit zest, lime zest, and sea salt. Dry hopped with citra and amarillo hops. It’s extremely refreshing, citric, slightly sour with a nice salty bite. Check it out at your local waterhole. A little bit about the style: Gose is an old German brew that originated in Leipzig, its a light abv beer that is slightly acidic and salty. We are one of the first Dutch brewers to revive the style. Some of you might recognize the name, we brewed this beer last year for the launch of our friends of Dick Moby. Last year it was only a 50liter batch, now its bigger and here to stay! Batch#1: Gose inspired wheat beer sour mash, with salt, lime and grapefruit peel. Dryhopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Amarillo

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond. Thanks Chen! Hazy yellow with small white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit with some lemon and herbs. Lots of grapefruit in the flavor, quite salty, notes of lemon and apple, mild bitterness, semi-dry. Moderate carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Very nice.

33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma of pure sour grapefruit and lemon juice, tiny hint of grain. Flavour is grapefruit juice, bitter peel, lime with hints of mint, quite sour, like eating a lemon, touch of salt that is only noticed at the start, firm acidic and bitter finish. Light bodied. Would love to have this in the summer time, very refreshing.

Cloudy and golden in colour with almost no head. Sour and funky. The saltiness is pretty pronounced. Really great.

Bottle bought direct from the Brewer’s. Pours a pink grapefruit blonde with little foam. The aroma has hints of brett. Flavor is fresh with lemon and grapefruit. It is somewhat sour. There is a hint of salt. This is really refreshing beer. It would taste great on a summer day but works just as well in January. This is easily the best Oedipus beer that I have tried (and I’ve tried pretty much all of them).
