zaf (248) - - NOV 4, 2013
aspetto non entusiasmante,giallo paglierino con schiuma bianca poco persistente (forse perchè alla spina)..aroma di malto leggermente acidulo e agrumoso..gusto poco luppolato,abbastanza maltato e mediamente sapido..una via di mezzo che ho un pò faticato a bere..brutto esempio di gose o stile da bocciare? lo scopriremo solo assaggiando! bevuta a milano al BQ sui Navigli a Milano

tipologia molto particolare al primo acchito abbastanza beverina anche se poi fiorisce subito il sapore salato della birra cmq ottima :)

Travlr (13233) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Thanks, Bruno, for sending this over! Cloudy yellow orange color. Earthy aroma of overripe oranges. Taste is lightly tart and earthy. Tasty.

Wolfbass (937) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 12, 2014
Direi abbastanza diversa rispetto allo stile tipicamente germanico. Ti aspetti una cosa e te ne trovi un altra, forse più sorpreso, ma comunque godibile.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014
Fra fad, Taphouse. Overraskende mørk gylden og helt klar. Virkelig lækker næse. Saltet og let syrlig. Noter af karamel, hør, græs. Ikke så let og hvedebrødsagtig i munden som andre goser. Tydelig salt i finish. God, italiensk gose med et twist.

An Italian brewery producing a German style and then delivering a memorable version to the United States? That was the surprise I discovered after ordering a pint at Holy Grale. Rather than another overpriced bland pale this Italian beer has a solid feel that makes it worth seeking out if you enjoy sessionable sours. Its only shortcoming might be the eventual cost when you do find it.

Aroma / Appearance - A caramelly bronze base shimmers with mild carbonation beneath a crisp white head. The salty rim of a margarita merges with orange zest. The subtlety plays well with the nature of this beer as a sessionable wheat sour.

Flavor / Palate - The fluid mouthfeel is refreshing from the first sip to the last drop. Light salt, citrus, and a dash of white pepper are part yeast and part sour. The saltiness and sour aspects play well with each other in a way that makes you immediately reach for the glass again. It could perhaps use a bit more dryness but compared to my initial expectations it exceeded them all. Its only flaw, as mentioned above, is that the cost alone makes it a bit too expensive to session for very long without a deep wallet.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
Draught at Taphouse. Low but lasting flufft white head. Cloudy light yellow green body. Mild acidic dusty fruity gooseberry aroma. Acidic to sour lemon nuts flavor. Low carbonation. Long dry finish.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
Draft. A dark golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of salt, malt, citrus fruits, and a bit of caramel, leading to a dry finish.
