Taste is Halls Cherry sweets, sugary, menthol, jammy fruits. Interesting stuff. (7-3-7-4-15=3.6) mR_fr0g (14275) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017

Bottle from Monks cafe Wallingatan. No head or carbonation. Clear solid golden color. Strange herbal medicine aroma. Distinct acidity but still a small sweetness and salty finish. brnandersen (4395) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2016
33 cl bottle, bottled in Nov. 2012. Hazy, burgundy colour with a golden tint. No head. Sour aroma with citrus fruits, red wine barrel, salty impressions, lactic notes and spices. Caramel malts. Taste is sour. Medium to full body with a creamy to oily texture and a flat carbonation. Finishes lasting sour with red wine barrel and salty notes. A really special experience. Complex beer, not a very high drinkablility.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Deep chestnut brown pour. Aroma of tart grape and raspberry, flavor of fruit, salt, wood, and vinegar. Interesting,if a bit strange. luttonm (7100) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle in Amsterdam, at Marko’s. Quite red, basically no head. Interesting red fruity, candy aroma. Tart juicy body, rich-intense gose mouthfeel. Tart and ‘salty’, drying mouthfeel. Tannic red wine, cranberry. Odd, but glad I got to try! Touch of calvados too.

0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in November 2012 (three years old). Clear, medium amber with almost no head, just a thin, frothy, quickly diminishing, tan layer. Sourish-sweet aroma of spruce honey, toffee, raisins, tea leaves, rhubarb and dubbin. Sourish-sweet taste of spruce honey, rhubarb, caramel, raisins, tea leaves and dubbin, followed by a short, slightly tart and minimally warming finish. Medium body, slightly oily and lightly astringent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Really interesting, surely with indications of the typical Gose-ish taste and acidity, but also with a distinct malty sweetness comparable to a light barleywine. Nice to try this one!
