Gose Island


Dok Brewing Company in Gent, East Flanders, Belgium 🇧🇪

Gose Regular
ABV: 3.0% IBU: - Ticks: 2
Triple fruited gose van 3% met frambozen. Wat is de grens tussen bier en fruitsap? Ongetwijfeld heel vaag, maar wij zochten de limieten op en deden 1080 kg frambozenpuree bij een batch van 3000l.
Dorstlessend, enorm verfrissend, fruitig, lichtzurig en laagalcoholisch. Dit wordt je nieuwe compagnon op de resterende warme zomerdagen.

Raspberry Gose by Dok in Ghent, thanks Craftmember for sharing there - and to Janos, the brewer, for the 'sneek preview' a couple of weeks ago... Moussy, pale pinkish, opening head on a cloudy ruby red beer with deep fuchsia glow. Aroma of raspberry indeed - actual red raspberries but also green raspberry bushes, salted lemon, tomato peel, sourdough, wakame, pickled beetroot. Tart onset, strong lactic acidity combined with additional raspberry sourness - but also a bit of sweetishness; generally quite dry but juicy at the same time from the fruit, slight salty edge growing a bit stronger in the finish, yoghurty kettle sour sharpness, sourdoughy with some wheat soapiness underneath the sourness, the fruit and the salt, ending with a green leaf touch again, remaining low in bitterness, and developing a vague and brief tomato juice-like assocation when the salt blends with the raspberry. The actual fruit offers less sweetness here than is often the case in fruited kettle sours; this one is nicely crisp and juicy from sour but at the same time fleshy fruit and for a fruit Gose showed more complexity than average. Not my genre - but this one is admittedly very good in that genre.

Pours a very vibrant, fluorecent pink. Small white head. Scent is fruity, raspberry isn't very recognizable. Taste is full, tad tart. Bit hollow. Some fruits, but misses depth (for instanse vanilla) to conect the flavors. Decent , not great.
