Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass light yellow, small head. Sourish-moldy aroma. Starts salty-sourish, not too intense, fine fruity like lemon. Well balanced finish, sourish-bitter aftertaste. Nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a shade darker than the gose, it’s cloudy and sort of orange. Aroma is tart with hints at lemon, salt and juicy, fruity notes which I must assume to be yuzu. The flavor is nice and balanced. The addition of yuzu makes this an interesting variation of their gose, but not necessarily for the better in my humble opinion. The fruit certainly blends in nicely and adds some balance, but it takes away from the delicious, subtle complexity of the grains, salt and yeast. I’d definitely drink this if I did not have access to their gose, but otherwise I’d reach for the latter every time.

Bottle via a trade before RAT. Extra’d. Pours a very light yellow to orange with small white head. Aroma is an odd astringent lemon peel and sour citrus. Taste is slight pledge, funk and more acetic sour. As it warms it has more of an off citrus flavor to it.
