On tap at Vices & Versa.

Pours a pale straw colour and hazy. Head an uneven cloud, half-moon style white foam. Trickle of bead. Quite good.

Fruity nose. Banana ,citrus and yeah an odd savoury note maybe slightly umami. Salt is there, but complementary and quite refreshing. Pleasant.

Taste is distinctly odd. Fruity with green apple, slight tartness. Salty from the get go, giving a cocktail glass note to it and a slight savoury batter flavour. Quite doughy on the back, like unleavened bread and slight medicine note. Very interesting, but kudos for it being quite drinkable.

Quite a thick mouthfeel actually. Fairly fluid though; interesting.

I think this is my first gose, or one of only two or three. Wouldn't mind more based on this. Interesting and palatable.

3.59/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Brewed especially for l'Oktoberfest des Quebecois.

Poured from a 341ml. bottle, no #freshbeer info but hasn't been on shelves more than a month.

Appearance: Totally cloudy body, color is lazy orange-yellow, minimal lacing, average retention.

Smell: Pretty salty, sour a bit, some fruit.

Taste: Minerals, mild fruit, sea salt, pineapple a bit, sourness is decent, nothing intense.

Mouthfeel: Nice upfront but ends abruptly, too clean of a finish? Zestiness helps it a bit though.

Overall: A decent effort but i prefer Trois Mousquetaires' take on the style much better.
