Thanks to papat444 for sending this out west for our enjoyment.

A: Rustic in its appearance, pours a cloudy golden wheat with 1 finger of white head that fell away to a thin layer of micro bubbles with scattered lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Bright acidic scents of lemons and ripe pears with background notes of wheat and bread. Hints of pale malts balance out the acidity. Very inviting and fresh.

T: Upfront taste of tartness of underripe fruits and bright lemons. Floral characteristics are present which were not detected on the scent. Finishes with pale malt notes of biscuit and bready yeast which balances the tartness. Very clean, refreshing and exceptionally balanced.

M: Tart dryness mid palate with chaser of creamy malts on the finish offers a freshment without puckering.

O: Sophisticated balance between tart dryness and maltiness. This is extremely refreshing and expertly balanced. I would love it if this was readily available here in BC as I would want to drink this everyday due to its refreshing nature and low ABV. Hopefully we will soon see a BC brewer take on this style as well as more sessionable low ABV varieties.

Thanks again to papat444 for sending it out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Bottled: 2013/05; Poured: 2013/07/30

A: Orangey, straw in color pouring to s short white bubbly head that falls quickly to a thin color. No lacing. Hazy with a touch of sediment which is typical of unfiltered/bottle conditioned brew.

S: A big tart nose with lots of sour notes; some lemon and coriander and maybe a touch grassy.

T: Right from the start you’re hit with the tart sourness (like under-ripe fruit) followed closely by a subtle saltiness. Lots of subtle complexity with lemon and coriander. The finish is long and tart.

M: Light body leaving the palate clean; lots of carbonation making me wonder why the lack of head.

O: Very nice balance of tart sourness and saltiness proving to be an example of the style.

Bottle at Brothers Beer Bistro. From notes.

A - Golden pour with one finger of white head that went fast. Strong carbonation. No lace and a film of retention.

S - Very different. Lemonade. Captures the sweet and sugary but sour very well. Minerally. Very interesting stuff. Some sour fruits too.

T - Salty, but not overly so. Lemonade, lemon candy. Fruity and a bit tart. Complex for the ABV.

M - Strong carbonation, salty and tart finish. Medium body.

O/D - Very interesting beer. Lot's of different flavours and interesting elements going on. Sour, salty, sweet. A good beer that I could drink a fair bit of on a hot day.

Trois Mousquetaires Gose is predictably cloudy; not only is the style left unfiltered but such a high percentage of wheat (typically 50-60%) ensures a good amount of protein and hence a thick, turbid complexion despite the rather light, yellow colour. Bubbles are abundant but head not so much; carbonation may seem active but it's evidently not very productive.

There's a reason spices like coriander were historically so expensive and universally sought after: their aromatics are ambrosial and unparalleled. A beer brewed with coriander, therefore, is correspondingly fragrant and boasts a seductively pungent perfume. There also seem to be notes of orange peel and citrus more generally. A drink that smells worthy of kings indeed.

Gose, like Berliner Weiss and for all the same reasons, is one style I'm surprised hasn't yet caught on the world over. It's immensely refreshing - far more so than the standard watered down and cloyingly sweet lager - and generally delivers all this refreshment in a manageable, medium-light frame. The fact that this one is a mere 3.8% alcohol is a bonus.

But seriously, is there any better beer for a hot, sunny summer day? It has zestiness courtesy of the ground coriander seeds as well as tart twang and quenching acidity from the Lactobicilicus. The saline quality is a kicker, the proverbial cherry on top, because, let's face it - the brain is hard-wired to crave salt. Taken with the soft graininess of the wheat, it's delightful.

To my knowledge the folks at Les Trois Mousquetaires are born and bred Quebecois, but they have the technical virtuosity and detailed craftsmanship of the best German brewers. Add Gose to a list that already included Doppelbock, Maibock, Rauchbier, Hopfenweisse, and Oktoberfest and you've got the best German lineup made outside of Germany. Hands down.

Sampled this at Bières & Saveurs in Chambly.

Body is hazy with the color a cross between peach and lemonade. Bit of a sourish wheat aroma. Flavor is of lemons, tart wheat and ripe peaches. Refreshing and quite good. Hope they bottle this sometime soon.

Serving type: on-tap
