330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 10/17/2018. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of tart black currant, lime, raisin, plum, fig, blackberry, sea salt, chocolate, cocoa, wheat, toasted dark bread, pepper, light smoke/charcoal/lacto funk, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, sea salt, roast/bready malt, and currant notes; with solid strength. Taste of tart black currant, lime, raisin, plum, fig, blackberry, sea salt, chocolate, cocoa, wheat, toasted dark bread, pepper, light smoke/charcoal/lacto funk, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, roast bitterness, and yeast/fruit tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart black currant, lime, raisin, plum, fig, blackberry, sea salt, chocolate, cocoa, wheat, toasted dark bread, pepper, light smoke/charcoal/lacto funk, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, sea salt, roast/bready malt, and currant flavors; with a great malt/tart/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from tart/bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and fairly grainy/chalky/acidic/tannic/saline balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a nice fruited black Gose style. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, sea salt, roast/bready malt, and currant flavors; very smooth, crisp, and pretty refreshing to drink; with the balanced acidity/spiciness. Very flavorful and well balanced for the low ABV. Unique and nicely enjoyable all around.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Dark cherry licorice colored with a bubble gum colored head, leaving nice chunky lace behind.

Aroma of basic salt, lime, stone, and blackcurrant. A little weak in volume though.

Salty and tart, some nice lime rind notes in there, with a rich dark berry flavor. The berry is fleeting though, it pops in and out. Ends on table salt and stone.

Feel is nice and thin, carbonated and easy to drink.

Overall a pretty solid dark Gose and interesting at that. Would have again.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark brown, almost black, with a small head, kinda reddish, and no lacing.

Smells like super sour black currants, red wine vinegar, and chocolate.

This is a little bit too vinegary for my tastes. There's a hint of salt, a nice chocolatey malt flavor, and lots of black currant. There's a definite red wine taste, but it unfortunately feels a bit like red wine vinegar.

This is light bodied, with a soft level of carbonation.

If this was touched a little bit, this would be a lot better. It's certainly interesting, though.

The colour is black with a brown edge. The two finger head is compact and beige-pink. It sinks slowly leaving no lacing on the glass.

The smell is quite light. Notes of chocolate, black currant candy and ripe plums. Earthy notes in the background.

The taste is very sour and tart with salt and passing notes of ripe black currants. Medium body. The aftertaste got some clean bitterness, black currants and a hint of charcoal. The mild finish is dry with some ripe fruits.

The carbonation is strong, the many mid-sized bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is light and a bit harsh.

Not as fresh as I had hoped for, nor as fruity.

Murky dark brown color with a purple hue and reddish head. Aroma has pretty much fruit, tart berries mostly and some minerality. Taste starts tart and fruity, quite astringent and dry. Lightly bitter and salty on the finish. Light body but feels quite smooth on the palate. Overall it's a quite good fruited gose.
