Up until now I’ve not liked the saltiness of Gose, which is a problem as that’s pretty much at the heart of what a Gose is.
But this one, brewed with seaweed and some dark malts is different.
And I think it may be the malts.
Where all the other Gose I’ve tried has been pale, this one is full of treacle and chocolate and of course salt goes very nicely with chocolate thank you very much.
The lactose from the addition of yoghurt (something Mad Hatter seem to like quite a bit at the minute) lends a soft creaminess with a sour edge, and the seaweed gives you the salty hit along with a rather pleasant ozone aftertaste, while the beer smells of coffee and chocolate.
The hops kick around in the dry finish with a herbal tang that keeps the beer feeling fresh and lively.
I may be changing my mind about Gose.
