Quidi Vidi Brewing Company Bog & Barrens Imperial Bakeapple Gose – Gose at 7.5% ABV

Quidi Vidi Brewing Company Bog & Barrens Imperial Bakeapple Gose Gose at 7.5% ABV (C$4.70 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, packaged on 4-Apr-2019, acquired 11-May-2019, reviewed 11-May-2019)

Appearance: clear deep gold with a short fizzy head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: vinous, bakeapples, light sulphur. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, light bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, short duration moderate tart finish. (4/5)

Definite bonus points for weirdness – I wouldn’t be surprised if there were maybe a few dozen people in the world who were familiar with both bakeapples and goses. The higher ABV of this “Imperial Gose” makes it even more vinous, with the lively carbonation making this seem a lot like a sparkling white wine. It’s not a complete success – I particularly don’t like the slightly plastic band-aid sulphurous note at the end – but it’s worth a try as something different. (14/20)
