3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from CANBIF 2014, shared at the 2014 end of year Ottawa tasting. Pale straw pour with an off white head. Epson salt, lemon rind, wheat and turnip. The nose just didn’t follow through into the palate though where it turned into flat lemonade (un-sweetened) with high carbonation and mild body and a slightly dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from tap to glass. Clear straw hue with fizzy white head that lingered. Aroma is corn, straw, lactic, butter. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a tart finish. Overall this is an ok brew but it’s I definitely get DMS and diacetyl.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really liked this one. Pours clear gold with lots of head. NOse is lemon pledge, some cereal. Flavours of lemon, wheat, some epsom salt and floral notes. Taste light sweet, light tang. Mouth is pretty light with some acidity. Really drinkable, and this is not typically a style that works for me.

Bottle shared by Jeff at the Dolphins tailgate. Snifter pour. Light golden yellow with a slight haze. Small head and some lacing. The aroma is light fruits, tartness, cereal, and coriander. The taste is similar with coriander, light floral and fruitiness, cereal, and finishes with a slight salty dryness. Not my favorite gose but certainly drinkable. Moderate carb.

Really nice example of the style. Subtle but complex. restrained funk, frutiness, spices and salt combine to make a wonderfully refreshing tart brew.
