Blackman's Brewery Tomato & Basil Gose

Blackman's Brewery

Published August 1, 2018

There's little that's off bounds when it comes to brewers and ingredients these days and, for the most part, when we read about something new or quirky there's a frisson of excitement. Whether "tomato & basil" falls into that category is a moot point, bringing with it thoughts of pizza beer or Shapes accidentally dropped into your glass...

Thankfully, the brewers at Blackman's have clearly applied the unlikely additions with subtlety. What's more, given this isn't their first rodeo when it comes to brewing a gose, they've been applied to a base beer that knows where it's at too. Thus, what you have here is a beer with a ridiculously fine head and carbonation, with a faint herbal, floral side to it, that's essentially a nicely judged gose with great texture that holds its sweetness, saltiness and refreshing acidity in delicate balance.
