Notes: Our Leipzig-style gose and blueberries are a combination destined to be together, so we've done that for you with this edition of our gose. The blueberries add another layer of fruity complexity to this sour ale already know for its tart, citrusy qualities while still balanced by the spicy character of coriander and a mineral-mouthfeel from French sea salt.

Canned 8/31/21

Following immediately from a Gose from Duclaw, we have a blueberry Gose from Destihl’s Wild Sour Series, a series which I am very fond of. Let’s see what it’s all about

Pours a cloudy orange pink with 2 fingers of light pink head that quickly fades to a thin cap and leaves minimal lacing

This is nicely tart in the nose, and has pretty much the perfect level of blueberry. I’m picking up on aromas of jammy blueberry, tart lemon, wheat bread, coriander, and a touch of salinity

And it keeps up in taste! Very tart and juicy. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting tart blueberry, doughy malt, lemon zest, sea salt, and light wheat. The swallow brings notes of lemon juicy, jammy blueberry, coriander, and wheat bread

A light body pairs with gentle carbonation, resulting in a zesty and refreshing beer. Finishes dry with a puckering tartness

This one is great. Perfect for this beautiful afternoon

Um this is a pink beer, dark pink but pink. It’s smells funky. Flavor isn’t sweet but fruity and fleeting. Hardly any sourness to the flavor but some zippy carbonation rounds out this beer.

5 oz pour on tap. I love fruited goses but this was disappointing. There is a weird bitter/metallic flavor that detracts from the desirable attributes of this beer (blueberry, wheat, tartness). Disappointing. I mean, a blueberry gose ought to be delicious and refreshing and this manages to be neither.

Pours a fun pink/red without a lot of head. Fruity blueberry/berry on the nose with salt and lemon. Any coriander is well hidden. Someone compared the blueberry quality to gooey yogurt blueberries and I'll echo that. The blueberry is less evident in the flavor, where it's a light, wheaty malt base with a little citrus and decent salt. Quite tart. Medium-light mouthfeel.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy cranberry color with a thin white foamy head that quickly disappears.

S: Lovely nose of blueberry, raspberry, chocolate.

T: Blueberry, raspberry, a touch of salinity. Didn’t really appreciate much tart character.

M: Light in body.

O: Drinkable and solid beer, though didn’t have the sour quality I was looking for.

12oz can with a date

Average for the series: If you don't know these are some of the best sour beers around (me), and this one falls in the middle of the pack. Medium sour, very tart, red color, acidic, not a ton of fruit flavor here, mostly just the salt as far as the additives go... I love it just based on the series it's apart of, but compared to some of its brothers it's just okay

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear burgundy pink pour with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Falls fast with a modest ring of lacing.

S: Tart and fruity... strong blueberry... milder funk and lemon.

T/F: Just like the nose. Light... tart blueberries and barnyard funk. Lemony citrus and unripened fruits. Light carbonation.

O: A solid blueberry gose. Good flavor... tart without being super sour. Very light and drinkable.

3.22/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Pours a hazy, purple-pink body with less of a head and more of a thin, whitish rind around the top.

Smell: Tart, smooshed berries, lactic acid, sourish wheat and a surprisingly amount of aromatic salinity. Aromatic salinity, baby.

Taste: Sweetish and fruity, though, sadly, its berry component comes across a bit medicinally. Wheat, lactic and lemony with a rather hearty salt addition. Small floral coriander hint. Remains fairly acidic and with a strong saltiness through the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation; a little prickly, at times.

Overall: It's your workaday kettle sour. Like clearing through a bag of pretzels solo, you can feel that saltiness for quite some time afterwards on the tongue.

The additional of blueberries doesn't really add much to this beer, that note is very weak and whispy. Goose elements are okay, though it borders on having a lactic quality which I find in a lot of Destihl beers. Okay

Nice, pretty tart gose style brew. A bit of a pallet destroyer so tread lightly.

Friend raved about this forever, decided it was time to dig in. Fantastic deep red color with a slightly pink head that surprisingly lasts compared to other Goses I've had. Lots of lacing. Smells like salt, wheat and subtle hints of blueberries, taste follows with the blueberries showing their worth a bit more and hints of spice joining in. Slightly tart but not overpowering at all. Crisp, highly drinkable with a great lingering berry taste that just keeps bringing me back for more. Mad at myself for only buying a single.
