Brewer Description: (from website) A classic sour and salty Gose brewed with salted lime commonly found in local Cha Chaan Tengs in Hong Kong and often served with lemon sodas. A perfect refreshing respite from the local humid weather, this beer will please beer geeks and novices alike. We kettle soured it with probiotic bacteria for a day, fermented it with ale yeast and matured with some salted lime.

Intro: A 946ml crowler, filled on 25th May 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku.
Appearance: A clear pale golden copper colour with an almost two finger white head that dissipated quickly to nothing, and no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, sour, salted lime, lemon, bready malt and wheat.
Taste: Sour and salty, mainly salted lime and lemon with strong bready malt and wheatiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied with only moderate to light carbonation.
Overall: Nice and refreshing especially for a hot summers day. If you haven’t tried it before, the salted lime may take some getting used to. But luckily, I’ve grown up with it. The one thing for me is that this would have been even better with higher carbonation.
