Style: Gose – Fruit
Other Notes: Brewed by Omnipollo at De Proef Brouwerij (Belgium)
Brewer Description: (from website) We couldn’t think of a better way to describe a fantastical beer than through its fairytale counterpart. Bianca Unicorn Lassi Gose combines unadulterated joy with flavours that spark the imagination, now what does that taste like exactly? You tell us. Brewed with milk sugar.

Intro: A 440ml can, with a best before date of 24th November 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A rather unappetising brownish grey colour with a slight purple hue, and a one finger off white (tending towards grey) head that had decent retention and left some lacing.
Aroma: Sweet canned pineapple with light citrus zesty notes.
Taste: Sweet, probably too sweet, with a light salty sour in the background. The pineapple juice from canned pineapples, with lots of extra sugar mixed in, fruity hard candy, sweetened Yakult.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a strange one. The appearance is a complete turn off for me. The aromas are nice, and the taste is generally my thing, and what I’d expect from a beer with ‘unicorn’ in it’s name, except that the whole thing is just way overly sweet. I think I would like it if there was more sourness to balance the sweet, but as it is, probably once is enough.
