Nevel w/ DOK Brewing (BE) - Kwiek (Wood Aged wild Gose) 6,1%, 1*33cl
Kwiek is a wood aged wild gose with absinth wormwood and Angelica root, brewed in collaboration with DOK Brewing from Gent.
Kwiek is a tangy gose, a type of beer with wheat that has its origins from Goslar and Leipzig.
After having done the research about the history of this style of beer, they noticed that there was a good use of absinth wormwood, a herb that they like to use themselves a lot in their beers. For this collab they decided to maintain that tradition with a wormwood that grows in the historic food forest the Ommuurde Tuin nearby Nijmegen.
Modern goses are commonly made with coriander seed, which they replaced by Angelica root, a local plant variety that gives nice herbal and fresh notes to the beer.
The fresh tanginess and long bitter after taste from Kwiek are balanced with a good dose of salt, another common used and characteristic ingredient of the gose.
This new beer is definitely one that we enjoy our selves a lot at All Things Wild And Natural.
