This is our interpretation of Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), a traditional German-style sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback.

On-tap at CASK Pub and Kitchen in Pimlico, London.

Pours a peachy, dirty golden colour, so thick with haze it's unbelievable. It looks like nectar. Weight is decent enough. Head forms almost nothing, just a few bubbles clinging to the outside—no lace, no carbonation. It looks extremely freaking weird.

Yep, weird is going to be the by-word here, I can tell. Nose has pear chutney, green-apple skin and funky lemon, slashed with brine. Salt-and-pepper fried squid and olive juice complete the picture. It's vivid and strong, and almost cacophonic. Outstanding.

Tart clingy entry on the palate. Stacks of unripe fruit acidity, leading to a true apple cider vinegar character. Banana and pear juice come through on the mid-palate before the salt wells up on the back, leaving a sharp brine flavour. Aftertaste lingers with salt and vinegar. Feel is light and biting.

This is so intense—it's hard to say really whether I like it or not. In any case it's a riproaring gose. Huge, intense, bigger and more outrageous than any other I've had. Keep it up, guys.
