3.58/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a real oddity here, a spruced gose. possible the lightest colored and flavored beer ever. it pours almost perfectly clear, lighter than a Berliner, with a couple inches of white head. its so clear I can watch tv through it, unabated. the nose is light as anything, a touch of wheat malt and minerals, not spruce at all. the flavor has a slight lemon kick to it, and is fairly dialed down on the salt content, compared to some other german gose beers ive had he privilege of trying. the wheat malt appears to be cut with water in a 50 percent mix, and I only get a little spruce when I really focus. maybe its a mind game and its not there at all. maybe im tasting what I want to taste. who knows, this beer is so light on flavor its impossible to tell, although I don't dislike it at all. ultra light feel, too much so really, but it is refreshing for the style, since there isn't too much salt in the finish drying me out. carbonation is ample. overall a beer that just didn't have a lot of flavor to it, a stronger or more concentrated version would be welcomed here.

3.69/5  rDev -1.3%
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.

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.

Gose: SO HOT RIGHT NOW

Appearance - Pale yellow with a bit of haze. White head starts at a couple fingers, drops to a mostly-full cap and leaves bits of lace here and there.

Smell - Sour and salty, wheat, crackers, some citrusy notes (grapefruit, lemon), some bananas and cream. Good strength.

Taste - Taste mostly follows. I do get some spruce in the form of a piny gin-like flavor. Decent sour+salt kick, herbal and earthy tones, wheat, straw, light fruitiness, baked bread finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty good body for 5%, somewhat lackluster carbonation. Average drinkability.

Overall - A pretty good gose, the spruce is subtle but a nice touch.
