Black Isle

Anything Gose (5.2% ABV, bottle — collaboration with Black Flag Brewery)
Hazy straw with rushing carbonation and a thick white head that stays well. There’s a floral, slightly tart aroma, with some very light shortbread biscuit malt in the background. On the palate, a very refreshing, lightly herbal, slightly sour taste, with hints of lemon but also some lychee notes. The coriander and salt in the recipe make themselves known, but they’ve been used judiciously. The salty sourness really lingers on the finish. It’s a beer of light complexity, with the rare fragility of a gossamer-winged moth. A very fine collaboration. (18-12-2017)
