Appearance: colour of mango flesh, with a fine white head that fades to a thin layer after a minute

Aroma: orange, clementine - the sweeter citrus fruits; coriander, very fresh

Taste & Mouthfeel: interesting sour, salty, sweet mash-up, all fighting for attention; lemon, sour green grapes, wheat cracker, and lightly herbal from the coriander; light body and crisp, dry mouthfeel; the lingering tartness has a cleansing feel; it's simple but executed very well, super fresh

Overall: get a sense of purity and cleansing - like this beer is doing something good for you. Certainly doing something good for my tastebuds. Great for summer afternoons

11.5 ounce bottle poured into an oversized snifter.

Pillow-like, sudsy foam forms over a cloudy golden body with robust carbonation. The carbonation adds some elegance. The head persists well, remaining a finger thick longer after pouring. Pretty. 5

From the bottle I notice a peachy, coconut-like aroma, something almost akin to sunscreen (in a good sense). Salt is there when I sniff hard enough and the collective aroma reminds me of a fruitier wine. 4

There must be peach added to this brew because it's all over my taste buds. That and a floral middle before the salty, wheaty lingering finish. Coriander is more noticeable here than on most other goses I've had and I appreciate that. Matter of fact, I appreciate all the flavors here. This just tastes delicious. 4.25

This feels like everything a gose should be: salty, dry, lip-puckering, lightly sweet and spiced. The tartness satisfies and the salt and dryness just compel further sipping. 4.5

I already want more and I've hardly finished my current pour. This beer requires an online order or a CO trip and I'd gladly do both. Excellent.

11.5 ounce bottle. Served in a Ritterguts Gose glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with almost a couple inch white head. Head retention is good, but there isn't much lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like salt, wheat/grainy malt, minerals, citrus peel and a bit of coriander. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, but there's a lot of salty, briny minerally character to this brew. It's a more salty/minerally gose. The longer I drink this, the more I'm liking it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this a lot. If you're looking for more salt/mineral flavors in a gose, then you'll like this one. But if you're looking for more tartness, then you probably won't. I know I'd buy this again! $4.75 a bottle.

Bought in Bellingham ...yep, USA. Not the first Canadian beer I've found only down there. WTF?

Pours gold with a faint haze and almost a finger of white head. Sweet grainy wheat, sour, some berries and orchard fruit and a touch of lavender ..I think. Some faint floral perfume anyways.

Interesting taste, mineral saltiness, light savory herbs, a touch of lavender (maybe I'm just weird??), faint berries, Very light sourness just cleans up the finish leaving just a mineral feeling (is that a thing?) coating the mouth and light prickliness from the lowish carbonation.

Very interesting take on the style. Extra points for that. Seems more refined than your average gose ...and might I add that it's pretty fucking cool to be able to say "your average gose" these days.

Tap: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a medium size foamy head. Aroma of salt with light tart wheat malt notes Taste is a mix between some salt notes with light tart wheat notes and some light coriander notes. Body is quite full considering the low ABV with good carbonation. Quite refreshing though maybe a tad too salty for my taste buds.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Deep orange body with a good lemon hue. Unfiltered presence with just a nice amount of carbonation, not much, but with pin head sized bubbles cascading evenly. A nice thin but foamy rich two finger even eggshell white head produced, and settles to a simple but good 4 millimeter collar and puck. No lacing. Pretty decent looking.

Really nice fruity tones for the bouquet on this. Hints of apricot and pear interestingly, and a bit of brine like quality. Very herbal smelling perhaps some of that corriander that my nose doesn't always grab as easy is being picked up. Real nice wheat chewy quality, just a hint of bakery goodness. Excellent aroma.

Palate sort of washes a bit neutral. Soda and radler like finish but without the sweetness. Malt and chewy density sort of left behind but washes clean with a good hint of salt character. Hints of green herbs and spice, even a bit of hop herbality manages to pop out. Heavily mineral though and almost tonic and spritzy in taste and character though. Aftertaste does however manage to bring in some bakery qualities, but it also explodes into orange and lemon citrus qualities too.

It's a real interesting beer, but it comes off just surprisingly too fruity for my tastes, and also has a radler quality to it. It is however a very good beer, but not usually what I look for in this style. I would however recommend this though for fans of the style to give it a go.
