3.73/5 rDev -0.5%
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.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a Weizen galss
A - A slightly hazy pale golden color with a dense four finger white head.
S- Tart lemons, some wheat, some coriander, touch of salt, some malt sweetness.
T- Wheat, sweet malts, some tart lemons, some spruce, touch of slat. Wish this was more sour.
M- Smooth, crisp, medium body.
O- Not a bad Gose, but I have had better. Worth trying, might pock up again.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at The Independent. Served in a champagne flute.
A: Hazy light gold, two finger's worth of fluffy white head, and medium visible carbonation.
S: Wheat grainy, light tartness, lemon citrus, and a bit husky and funky.
T: Wheat and pilsner malts, mild tartness, a bit of funk, mild lemon citric, and fairly low salinity for style. Finishes with lingering pilsner malts and mild tartness.
M: Light body, good carbonation sensation. Essentially no detectable alcohol.
O: This isn't a bad beer, but not a particularly great example of a style that's really starting to catch on. Worth a try, but it wouldn't be a go-to beer for me.
