An absolute thirst quencher with a slight refreshing hint of coriander, perfect for post workout, sitting in the sun or…. just because!
Origin: Denmark (Brewed in Belgium)
I love all the Mikkeller brews I've tried and this is no exception. It's a bit thick for a gose, but very refreshing. Nicely sour, with strong coriander and salt notes, backed with a nicely balanced sweetness and full mouthfeel. There's a nice, complex and funky background. It may sound strange, and maybe not your thing, but if you're curious, I'd say give it a go. I love these post workout or on a hot day.
I Rarely Review
But this beer is really worth saying a few words about it. I drink exclusively NA beers, but before this I really loved funky, sour beer. (I loved Cuvee de Ranke especially.) While I lived in Germany I drank quite a few Leipziger Gose and loved this tart and salty style of beer. While I can't do a head to head comparison, this Mikkeller Henry Gose Lightly is really delicious and has a wonderful savoury quality. The one review that said it was sweet must have received an off can because the first can we tried was tart, fruity, hazy and lightly salty. I may update my review to 5 stars, but want to try the other Mikkeller's first :) I've been quite disappointed with many NA beers but not this one.
A Thirst Quencher For Sure!
I love Goses, so I may be a bit biased. I really enjoy this one! It may lean on the saltier side rather than sour, but the hint of coriander brings it together. I don't think it's too sweet. Perfect for a post run bev. Bonus points for being in 440ml can!
prompt delivery and great order communication, beautiful packaging but far too sweet for my palette. was expecting the product to be more sour and bitter like the alcoholic gose's i have sampled. not blaiming the product - just not a good fit with my palette.
