Home » Brulo 5 Fruit Gose
  • Refreshing and punchy bite
  • Full and bold flavour, not fruit heavy, definitely not juice
  • Thirst-quenching and satisfying slow drink
  • Apricot, apricot, apricot
  • Very salty and lingering aftertaste if that’s not your thing

Brulo’s all-seeing eye is never too far away when discussing exciting nolo brewers. It’s like the eye of Suaron, except instead of searching for one ring to rule them all, Brulo is searching for hop forward nolo beers…to rule them all.

Brulo was founded in 2019 and hails from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Founder James brands Brulo as ‘beer for the modern world’ and chose the eye as a symbol, representative of being ‘fully awake – present – sober’, slightly different but equally as epic as the Sauron connection I was attempting to forge. They have a strong presence and are immensely popular among the nolo community, collecting a 2021 AF Beer award win.

Since its founding, Brulo has created 8 diverse beers including 6 distinct IPAs, 1 stout and 1 Gose. I’m tasting the 5 Fruit Gose today, which, as advertised, boasts 5 unique fruit flavours: mango, passionfruit, guava, apricot and orange.

I’m excited about all of them besides apricot but as leading toothpaste brands will tell you, ‘4 out of 5 ain’t bad.’

Let’s dance, Gose!

Brulo 5 Fruit Gose – Initial Thoughts

Life’s a beach and so is Brulo’s 5 Fruit Gose.

It has the sea-saltiness, the tiki bar fruit punch and the sense that drinking it is a luxury that you couldn’t or maybe shouldn’t experience everyday. It’s not an everyday kind of beer, it is a special occasion kind of beer. 

5 Fruit Gose has an orange/orangina (duh) like colour and is nice and cloudy like the traditional gose is meant to be. You don’t need to be a bloodhound to detect the nose or smell of this brew.

That said, the combination of 5 different fruits makes it difficult to distinguish one distinct and powerful smell so I ended up with several light and fleeting smells including tart, citrus, apricot and passion fruit. The fruitiness is not overpowering or overly sweet, rather it smells like I’ve walked into a busy beachside tiki bar that is cutting up lots of colourful fresh fruit to make cocktails.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated which feels good and prickly, nicely combining that iconic gose crispiness with tropical fruits. The taste is…uniquely thirst-quenching for something so freaking salty. The passion fruit and mango sweetness is masked by salty gose tartness. The tartness was so strong that a big sip led me to involuntarily open my mouth and stick out my tongue. The aftertaste (aside from the bane that is apricot) is my only mark against it because it slightly lingers and has hints of stale fruit. 

Despite how my face looked at times, I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 Fruit Gose and its bite. It is one for drinkers who like to explore rarer beer styles that will take the palette to new, unusual and fun places. Enjoy on its own or with a spicy curry!
