Modern Times Beer Fruitlands Gose at 4.8% ABV | 17 IBU (C$4.24 at Oak & Vine, 473 ml, packaged on 20-Mar-2017, acquired 26-Apr-2017, reviewed 29-Jul-2017)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, melon, light brine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, mild bitter, mild salt. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-high carbonation, crisp tart and salty finish. (4/5)

A pleasant Gose: light and crisp, tart and fruity. Though, maybe I should say fruity, fruity, fruity, light, crisp, and tart, since the tropical fruit (guava? passionfruit?) utterly dominates this. However, it’s not excessively sweet or cloying, and doesn’t come across as unbalanced. Refreshing and pleasant. (16/20)
