Scottish Brewing History Lesson #3-Grozet Gooseberry and Wheat Ale

Gozet is an effervescent straw coloured brew.  It looks deceptively like a lager--fairly clear, highly carbonated and topped by a shock of white head.  However, a lager it is not.  Grozet is a gooseberry and wheat ale, definitely the first I've ever tried.  It has a sweet, fruity aroma that has a candy-like quality.  It tastes sugary and fruity.  The wheat flavour I was expecting wasn't really present, but the berry flavour was just right--pleasing without being overstated.  There was barely any aftertaste to speak of.

Grozet was really thin and really light.  It was a unique brew, though probably not one I'd reach for on any sort of regular basis.  Worth a try?  Sure.  Plus, it has this awesome label designed by third-year students at the Glasgow School of Arts:
Rating; 7.5 out of 10.
