look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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.

The only Gose I've found I liked. Some say it's too salty, not for me. It was refreshing, tart and crushable. This is recommended.

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.

edit: just had a version of this aged on granite by oec, called zymatore. it added a cool slate minerality to it, but it did not improve it at all i didnt think. this beer needs nothing, and the granite seemed to have sucked some life from it, much less carbonated and bright than the original. love the base beer more than anything, and while the granite is neat, it ends up being cooler conceptually than it is for the actual beer...

Bottled I brought to share at the LA Beer Talk bottle share.

Pours a murky gold with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, earth, salt, fruit, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit, salt, earth, and funk flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great mix of sour and funk characteristics, but the salt level is fairly heavy handed compared to other beers of the same style I have tried.

Serving type: bottle.
