Bottle bought at Liquor Shed.

It pours a hazy orange with an impressive head of foam, even with a gentle pour. Lacing is top notch.

The smell is apple pear, what Quince is all aboot when I googled it. Lovely aromas, tart just edges out sweet.

Taste is as good as the smell. More of an apple taste up front that brings some mild tartness, pear flavour, to me, brings a mild sweetness. I definitely taste some salt. It finishes dry.

Light body with medium to medium light carbonation.

Excellent and very enjoyable. A new favourite of the style.

Pours deep gold/pale amber coloration with a large, frothy head. Smells lovely of what I can only assume is quince, a mixture of citrus and apple aromas with a hint of spice and sea salt. Taste follows the nose, with a tart and zesty quince taste that is reminiscent of lemon and green apple, with light notes of hay, grass, grains, coriander and sea salt. Quite a bit of sea salt, actually. Finishes with a dry sourness and a good dose of sea salt lingering in the aftertaste. Light/medium body with medium/lively carbonation.

This is not quite as good as their Rhubarb Gose to me and only in part because I like rhubarb better than quince. It's not as perfectly balanced, or maybe just different. It lacks the subtle sweetness, being more zesty and dry, but with a decent balance in its own right. The sourness is quite light, but appropriate for the style, while the salt seems a little overdone, although it's not too bad.

Clear straw yellow with a huge four inch fluffy white head that lasts several minutes before settling to a foamy pillow. The Stiegl stange holds a coating of sticky lace above. After yeast is added in the second pour, it turns cloudy orange.

The aroma is reminiscent of fresh sea breeze with lemon or lime. Other nuances include floral lilac and lavender and honeydew melon. The yeast addition adds earthiness and green apples.

Light tartness balances the brine. Honeydew melon lingers in a mild finish. Overall this has a mild, sweet, tart/acid balance. It warms well but is best cool. Yeast added faint banana.

The body is light and silky with fine scrubbing carbonation and faint alcohol. This is a refreshing thirst quencher. Mouthfeel became creamy with yeast.

This is a very relaxing, subtle beer that I will look for in the future. It is better without the yeast.

Pours a deep hazy orange, nice big foamy head, just a bit of lacing left behind. Aroma is mildly sweet, some sour apple, subtle marmalade that becomes more prominent as this warms up. All the flavors of an orange (or I guess quince? to be honest, unsure what a quince tastes like) marmalade are there, minus the sweetness. Touch of pithy bitterness as well. It seems sweet without being so, if that makes any sense. Nice refreshing mouthfeel as well. Really enjoyed this one.

This one pours a very cloudy dark yellow color that has a moderate head that settles fast and leaves a complex lacing down the glass.

The nose is is peppery grass, with notes of sour apple, salt air.

The taste is phenomenal gose style and it is scrumptious. the flavors are sweet, sour, savory and effervescent with notes of citrus lemons and oranges that are dry and not a dominant sweet. A perfect example of the gose style of beer.

The mouthfeel is light and delivers this incredibly good beer to the palate perfectly.

Overall this is a phenomenal Gose style beer and a perfect example of how it should be. I cannot recommend this one enough.

0.5 mL bottle poured to Oktoberfest glass. Deep golden color, 2 finger head that mostly diminishes. Fruity nose of pear with a hint of funk. Clean taste with a finish that lingers, keeping the fruity tones and almost tasting like cider. Average feel and carbonation.

Body – medium yellow, mostly chill haze
Flavor – begins tart and citrusy, fruity but nothing I’ve had before, ends with a tangy aftertaste; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl

A pleasant gose which has introduced me to quince. I remember my grandmother had a quince bush in her yard and no one ever harvested the fruit, slightly smaller than a kiwi fruit as I recall.

A: Light quince and resiny, pine needles coupled with a faint saltiness and mild lacto sourness.

A: Orange color, super hazy with moderate white semi-rocky head that has solid retention. Light lacing is left in the glass.

T: Light quince and pine needles, coupled with a faint saltiness and a mild tartness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; the quince and pine needles bring an interesting aroma and flavor combination to a traditional gose. The beer also has solid overall balance, however the beer could be better if more effervescent and if the salt were slightly more noticeable.
