this beer is insanely good, so lucky to finding it hiding out at a little liquor store in fort collins, i have never seen it for sale in denver, maybe its a little old, before my new found love for italian beer. either way, it was well worth the roughly 20 bucks i paid for it. its a blend from what i understand, of a lambic type and a gose with pink salt. the whole thing is spectacular. looks the part, wheaty haze under a huge belgian type head with vigorous carbonation and a ton of tangy funk exploding out of the glass. it smells dry as can be, somewhere between a saison and a lambic, there is definitely more to the yeast profile than wild lacto, thats a certain, but its mysterious and foreign to my nose. its foreign to my tongue too, but its tart as well, and has a lot of grassy farmy barny summery character, and dries this out like a dessert in the finish. the salt is subtle but different and somehow heavier than other gose types i have had. i like the wheat, which is fresh but also a little tannic, and there is a delicate fruitiness running through this that goes from lime to kiwi and back again, weird but awesome, and the salt i think helps pull that out. ducato has been all over the map in my experience, but this is one of their best, and what i like to call "cantillon good" meaning that it sort of sets the quality bar to be aimed for by others. carbonated like champagne and interesting as anything i have had coming out of italy. absolutely worth the money, one of my favorite beers of 2015 so far. perfect amount of sourness and maturity, artfully composed. (1,588 characters)

On-tap 12/31/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains esters, very light malts and not much else.

T: The taste starts out sour as expected with flavors of citrus and corn. The malt character is light but hearty for the style and creates a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly tart.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are better choices within the style. (720 characters)

On-tap at Alewife, Long Island City, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a short head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste starts out with sourness and has some hints of salt towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink given its light body nature, but the sourness also makes it interesting enough to sip and savor.

On draft, pours a cloudy straw pale yellow, good carbonation, thin white head.

The nose is tart, citrus peel, yeast, good funk. It has a very rustic barnyard note. The flavor is traditional gose, lots of salt, some wood, but I can't place the barrel. Lemon zest at the end. This is good, clean, but I never think of a gose as refreshing due to the saltiness. Fun to try. (376 characters)

I tried this beer several times, on draft, at The Dew Drop Inn in Derby CT. Its a fantastic sour that left me wanting more. The salt was more obvious the second time I tried it as opposed to the first. I believe we were at the bottom of the barrel the second time I tried it. Anyways, if you can find it in a bottle at the store or see it on draft at a bar then you'd be foolish not to try it. (393 characters)

bought a 750ml bottle

Appearance - beautiful pinkish hue with small head

Smell - smells like a delicious sour just waiting for me to dive into

Taste - very much like a traditional gose, but the added 9 months in the wine barrel did it some good. I could definitely taste the salt (pink Himalayan), which added an extra layer of complexity to it.

Mouthfeel - taking down the gose was delicious. great and think mouth feel

Awesome brew. The $22 price tag was a little more than I wanted to spend, but looks like it was well worth it. I'll be buying another bottle or two at some point. (588 characters)

Draught in Open Baladin, Rome on 10th Dec 2013.

Misty orange coloured beer with a smooth white head.

It reminded me of a well carbonated sour 'scrumpy cider' in both aroma and taste. Yet it didn't really have an apple flavour or smell: weird.

Glad I had a glass, not a huge fan of sour beers, but this was refreshing and although fairly 'fizzy' it hit the spot after wandering the streets of Rome and getting lost while trying to find a few sights. (451 characters)
