thellgren (1001) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2016
0.33 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Appearance is pale yellow, hazy, big head, lively carbonation. Aroma and taste are like lambic - vineous and very sour. Hints of some grain, too. I dont taste any salt. More close to lambic than gose, but who cares. This is absolutely great.

Ernest (7627) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, fizzy, white, mostly/fully diminishing Body is cloudy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of sour apple, lemon/lime juice, oak. Flavor is moderately sweet, heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent. Another very solid entry from Ducato, a fairly consistent and skilled brewery, Im finding (still a big fan of Brett Peat Daydream after many samples from both bottle and draft). This is a mish-mash of lambic and Berliner Weiss (and at least by ingredients, gose, but honestly I cant really tell theres salt in it), absolutely tear-inducing sourness but somehow there is just enough sweetness to make me sorta grin and go for another sip, almost like a glutton for punishment. Sourheads will surely think Im exaggerating, but of course everyone has their own thresholds for various odors and flavors, and I am very sensitive to sourness. Its an accomplishment for a brewery to make something like this that I not only find drinkable, but enjoyable. Extreme sourness can work just fine for me if (A) its not also significantly bitter, (B) its aromatically enticing and clean (something Crooked Stave and Odd13 and many others need to work on), and (C) the mouth experience is pleasant...its very common for sour beer to have a stark, prickly, overly tannic mouthfeel that just isnt any fun to drink. This is indeed a bit on the watery and fizzy side, but its not bad at all, better than most 4% beers and certainly sour beers of any gravity. Bravo, Ducato.

jjsint (2899) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Keg tap at the Italian Job. Whitish yellow, completely cloudy. Tiny bits of white head floating on top. Sharp lemon, some posset with creamed banana. Intense milk sour taste with salt to the fore and following to the finish. Salt on the tongue and intense acidity in the back if the throat. Thin and somewhat oily body. Very tasty and intense as hell for 4%. A top gose.

Taste of tart lemon, grapefruit, apple, slight yogurt, lactic acid, a hint of salt and subtle barnyard. Light bodied and a slick texture. A tangy, lactic, citrus finish.
