Intro: A 330ml bottle, with a best before date of 29th March 2024. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown to black in colour with a thin tanned head, that had pretty good retention while leaving some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, almonds, with light dark fruit notes, plum, prunes.
Taste: Sweet malt, light roast, dark chocolate, almonds, caramel, dark fruit, plum, prunes, with a lasting nutty finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, with soft carbonation.
Overall: An enjoyable sipper. It’s sweet, but I think that there’s just enough bitterness from the dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and hops, to balance out that sweetness.

Stu Mostów x North Brewing ART+45 Triple Fruited Gose Banana Strawberry

Brewery: Browar Stu Mostów x North Brewing Co.
Country: Poland
ABV: 4.5%
Style: Gose – Fruit
Other Notes: 5 IBUs. Malts – Barley, Wheat Malt and Oatmeal. Hops – Chinook. Adjuncts – Banana puree and Strawberry puree

Brewer Description: (from website) Sweet and salty, gently sour and incredibly delicious beer combination! Into our new Gose from ART+ brand we added huge amounts of bananas and strawberries, which resulted in an extremely full, well-balanced taste and intense fruit aroma. Don`t forget to try this one out!

In pursuit of the most crushing, full-bodied and fruity summer combination, in the next beer from the ART+ series we decided to join forces with the North Brewing Co.! Some time ago we had the opportunity to visit their brewery in Leeds and brew together a beer included in one of the most popular series in their offer – TFG (Triple Fruited Gose). The recipe we created contained the best quality malts, oats, lactose and salt to create an incredibly full, thick, smooth and… triple fruit experience! As it was very well received, when brewing at Dlugosza 2 Street (this time online) once again we decided to bet on the Gose style enriched with bananas and aromatic strawberries.

Intro: A 440ml can, with a best before date of 1st December 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A cloudy pink guava orange colour with a two finger white head that had good retention, while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, strawberry, banana, milkshake.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, some fruit, strawberry, banana, with slight minerality.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A strange one for me. It sounds like something I would like a lot, and I definitely enjoyed the aroma. But the flavour, while it had some strawberry and banana, still seemed to be light on the fruit flavours, while what flavours there were, also ended quite abruptly.
