3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. For some reason the text on the label is missing a lot of k’s. Hic ory wood and blac lava salt, it says. Is there some kind of message here? No war, no KKK, no fascist USA? Wow, gusher. Pours clear red amber with a medium sized foamy off white head. Sweet blac/red berries in the nose. Aroma has apple, pear, berries, light malt, lime. Taste is light/medium sweet with no bitterness, very light acidic. Light/medium body. I don’t see gose ever becoming my favourite style, and though it is fresh, fruity and easy to drink, with so many good beers around this is not first on my shopping list.
