Details

A gose is one of those styles that has made a resurgence recently. It’s a German wheat beer that is defined by a mild saltiness. Knowing that it’s an esoteric taste, many brewers hold back offering up only the merest hint of tart saltiness. Not Pohjala, the Estonian brewery who don’t do boring. This has a saltiness up front from the addition of pink Himalayan rock salt, and a tartness of sharp grapefruit, yet softened with notes of toasted almonds. Super refreshing.

Brewery Info

Põhjala was founded in Tallinn, Estonia at the end of 2011 by four Estonian beer enthusiasts and home brewers. Soon thereafter the company was joined by a Scottish head brewer, Chris Pilkington, with a few years of Brewdog experience under his belt.

Their beers span a broad range of styles, but with a particular focus on porters, barrel ageing, and ingredients from the forests of Estonia — as well as more contemporary styles. Põhjala currently exports to over 30 markets around the world and to almost every country in Europe.

No mucking about, this gose is properly lip-smacking tart and with a hint of saltiness to follow. Drink and be meri.

Lovely and sour. Good salty hit. Exactly what you want in a gose... unless like me and you much prefer a fruity gose to a herby one.

Very nice clean gose. A touch subtle on the salt and spice for my taste but fine nonetheless less. Lightly crisp, and with a subtle winey overtone. Legit.
