3.84/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours murky gold with a bubbly ring. Decent splashy lace.

Really interesting nose, with spruce, floral, and soapy notes in the nose.

Not the best of the style that I've had. Mildly tart, odd herbal note, spruce nettles do show up. Sour notes are nice, as are some mild sweet grassy elements. Lightly salty with spruce at the end.

Medium bodied, ok carbonation.

A twist on the style, with the spruce nettles. The nose on this gives such an interesting perfume that you think you are tasting something that you are not.

3.73/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

3.88/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy straw color with dense white head, settles to a thin layer; sheet of lace for a few inches down the glass. Smell: grape juice, spice, wheat cracker, citrus and earthy notes Somewhat fruity but no real promise of acid. Taste: interesting... some fruit sweetness (nectarine, grape) into pine and citrus, into snappy lactic + wheat, spice, then finishing semi-dry with residual lemon, a little salt, and lingering herbal note. Not as summertime-crushable as others, but this one packs a good amount of flavor, nice.
