4/5  rDev +6.4%

As wacky as the craft beer scene seems to be, there's plenty of room to reach into the goodie sack of history and pull out historic styles for as much reinvention as is exploration. Braustelle's traditional "salt" beers are of great testament to this notion.

With its cloudy straw yellow pour, the beer sheds a creamy white froth to cap, retain and lace the session extremely well. Its nose is tangy with a lemon and lime medley but also with earthy wheat, hay, herb and a delicate musken quality for complexity and intrigue.

With its early bready-sweet taste dissolving on the palate, its playfully acidic middle blossoms on the tongue with citrus, white wine and dry apple cider. The beer's classic salty brine rises, but only just enough to ensure a sense of fullness and to brighten the flavors that are already present in the beer.

And with its dry and racy finish, the palate is left refreshed and the thirst is quenched to near perfection- just enough acidity to wash the palate. It trails with a soft mineral quality and faint citrus peel, much like gin-and-tonic refreshers. Echoes of wheat return deep in aftertaste.

From a 500 ml bottle into a pokal glass. Reviewed from notes dated June 12, 2014.

A-A normal pour produces about a finger of white head that fades quickly to a thin cap. The beer is milky with lazy carbonation visible in the light-straw colored liquid. Standard stuff.

S-The aroma is subdued with a bit of toasted wheat malt and a hint of tartness. There is mild lemon aroma and a bit of butter-like body to the malt. Not much in the way of salt or spruce.

T-The taste is a little more complex with some pine/spruce notes floating in and out. There is a bit more tartness and a hint of salt in the background. The malt bill is heavy on the wheat.

M-The body is on the light side and carbonation is smooth and drinkable.

O-This beer is a relatively traditional and simple example of the style. It drinks easy and doesn't blow you away with tartness or salt or whatever. It fits the bill on a hot summer day, but there are better gose beers out there.
