3.75/5  rDev -1.3%

A: Golden cloudy with almost a green herbal tinge, little carbonation, an off white head that fades relatively fast.


S: Coriander, herbal like sage, sweat, baloney.


T: Salt forward, then a little sour quality, coriander, light smokiness and umami savor in the form of baloney. There is a hint of floral in there as well.


M: Medium light body, medium low carbonation.


O: By far the saltiest gose I’ve had by far, this is unique. Got it in Toronto, drank in New Hamburg, ON, Aug 24th 2014. I think they’ve done a great job. The bottle and label itself are very cool. Relatively light, sessionable beer. Good for a warm day.

3.44/5  rDev -9.5%

375 mL bottled 25/03/14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma – faint maybe coriander
Head huge (7 cm), off white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing until stabilizing at a 3 mm layer
Lacing none
Body light yellow, cloudy
Flavor very light; the spiciness comes through initially but quickly fades; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3.25, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.44. Final weighted score: 3.44
This is a pleasant Gose, very drinkable, and less salty than Westbrook, Anderson Valley, or Leipziger Gose; that may make it more palateable to those who do not like gose-style beers. The appearance and body are typical of goses while the aroma seems a little weak. Still, this is a very pleasant, highly sessionable beer.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Beer is a cloudy golden colour, good film retention and some nice lacing.

S - an interesting combination of tart gooseberry, sour lactic notes, wheat creaminess, and some aromatic prickling spice with some of the coriander notes playing a key role in linking together some of the elements. More notes of pomegranate and cherry emerge.

T - pears and gooseberry with a mild coating lactic tartness, an initial salty and saline character becomes quite evident and is a slick feel on the palate, brings some mild tart fruit notes, some of the coriander spice, leading to a briny slightly leafy finish, The wheat malt is smooth and adds quite a relaxing creaminess to counter some of the sourness and brine, the yeast really starts to open it after it has warmed up.

M - light bodied and slight carbonation, it does have an evident briny quality. It is crisp and refreshing, the evident salty character gets balanced by increasing pear and berry fruits as it warms with is nice, crisp finish and light making it a tasty session option. Wheat does give it a creamier mouthfeel despite the saltiness.

A salty and refreshing gose, decent spice and florals open up to delve into some lively complexity here. Not too sour, maybe some light tartness to it but that was about all I registered. Creaminess from the wheat is there in body but a lot of the flavour is commanded by the salt. A tasty and light session beer, enjoy the complex tart fruit and floral character mixed with a strong earthy spice. Well balanced as it delivers a long but crisply satisfying finish. Good session beer, though the salty brine was a bit much for the most part and it did have a distinctly saltwater character to it initially. Worth trying.

375ml bottle served pretty cold into a glass. First time trying this style, but this appears to be a good representative so let's give it a whirl. Purchased from LCBO for 3.65 CDN.

Appearance - very hazy yellow and gold coloured. A finger or so of fluffy white head is poured and retention time is pretty good for a lower ABV beer. Looks like there are plentiful bubbles rising to the top but it's hard to say since the beer is so hazy. Some sparse lacing forms around the glass.

Smell - somewhat sour and vinegary maybe with some sour fruit. Aromatics aren't too bold, yet have an a nice presence to them.

Taste - sour and vinegary but not overly so with a nice apple like tartness. Some saltiness in the mouth and a touch of sweetness blended with fruit and bread in the aftertaste. Good deal of flavor overall.

Mouthfeel - remarkably creamy feel that was good weight and moderately high carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Overall - while I have very little experience with this style, I can see the appeal if you are feeling something different on any given day. I would definitely try this again.

3.25/5  rDev -14.5%

A - Thick, foamy head with large bubbles that dissipates rather quickly. Light straw colour and a little cloudy. No lacing at all.

S - coriander, salt, wheat.

T - Salt and some lemon tartness upfront and then nothing followed with a salty finish. Maybe a little too much salt for my liking.

M - Nice mouth feel. Fairly refreshing beer.

O - A decent attempt at this style.. It's worth trying once but I will not buy it again. I much prefer the Ritterguts Gose.

3.66/5  rDev -3.7%

A:
Pours a ridiculously cloudy vanilla cake color with a decent frothy beige head that evaporates pretty quickly to a film and then a barely-there ring around the glass. Meh retention; no lacing to speak of.

S:
Fresh and crisp. Spicy, wheat, chalky yeast, white pepper, bubblegum.

T:
Tart and slightly salty. Lime, perrier bubbly crispness.

M:
Thin and light bodied, very refreshing with a slight feel and a quick finish.

O:
Tasty beer.
This is the first Gose that I have ever had so I don't know how good or bad it is in comparison to others (Westbrook's being the only one that springs to mind). But, it is a pretty tasty, well-balanced and ridiculously refreshing beer. Ths saltiness and sour touch go a long ways in playing back and forth with your taste buds, I am now eager to try other Gose's, but don't know that this is one of the best beers I have ever had.
Might be a good bridge for wine (especially white) drinkers that don't like beers. Wait for a hot day and some spicy food.
Might have again; worth a shot if you see it.

3.9/5  rDev +2.6%

375ml bottle into snifter. production date march 25, 2014, printed on the back label. consumed on july 22, 2014

a: a nice and vibrant apricot hue. under a finger of bubbly, non-foamy head that disappeared hastily

s: coriander and citrus fruits bounce off of each other up front -- lemon and orange. bits of wheat, bananas, peaches, and salt. this aroma hints at sourness too

t: a potent and fun sour presence up front with funk notes and coriander. pilsner malt, lemon, peach, orange, and wheat notes follow, but they're situated in the background as the spice and sourness still tower over at this point. finishes mildly salty. complex and interesting stuff

m: light-bodied, with a prickly carbonation that i feel complements the tartness

o: i was really excited to crack open my first gose ever and it didn't disappoint. the first sip was ridiculously sour, but of course there are many other dimensions to this beer, and they all opened up as i continued to drink it. it's funky, sour, and salty, but it's also light, tasty, and has a fantastic (albeit subdued) fruit profile. give this one a try
