Very smooth for a gose. I got some stone fruit flavors to accompany the sourness. Very refreshing.

Sweet for a Gose and slightly bready (like a Kolsch), not very sour. However, certainly light and refreshing.

This zippy light-honey colored offering, is quite literally bursting with a fragrant layering of peach, mango and spring flowers. Focused and refined where the residual sweetness is playing off the lemony tartness and traditional salinity. Refreshing and elegant overall even if rather hollow and short.

Ready for a refreshing one? Sure. Here's a half-liter of gose. On to the beer:

Like a sandy blonde color and topped with a half-inch of creamy head before dropping to a thin lace. The aroma offers a small twist to the usual gose. In addition to a kiss of salt and tart, there's a note of spruce as well which gives the aroma additional depth.

The fist split second is a bitter and sour combination, wich thankfully is relieved to something that's a little more interesting. There a tasteless acidic note which doesn't know which direction to go. A touch of salt and a surprisingly very bready base. With a perfumy spruce in the background, I don't know if I love this gose or hate it. I do like that breadiness though, and it brings a note of honey blossoms too, plus the aftertaste it leaves is more than pleasant.

It's refreshing in a weird way, but it's not like a kolsch or helles lager on a hot day. Different, to say the least.

Look: Cloudy, lemon yellow, medium head that dissipates fast
Nose: Faint smell, can't quite put my finger on it
Taste: Slightly thin, sour, salty, a little more carbonation than usual

Reeks of bready malt, but luckily there's some lime and sharp peach and grapefruit in the flavor to add complexity. Floral notes are a nice complement.
