On tap at the Victory for the One Off Stand-Off night, and then again at C'est What in cask form.
Pours a cloudy orange with a good finger of creamy white head, and some nice lacing. Lots of wheat in the nose, and some banana esters, along with a dash of lemon and some spice. Quite large hefeweizen flavour, with a nice citric bite, big banana esters and some clove. The gose characteristics are a little limited, and the salt takes a long time to hit, which is dissapointing. Probably too much banana in this one to be considered authentic, and I would have liked to see the coriander amped up (its there, but its subtle). Mouthfeel is great, though, with a nice softness and smooth carbonation.
A really enjoyable pint, but I think its a little out of the box for a gose based on the past examples I've had. Sometimes, though, that doesn't matter, and I applaud Beau's for brewing another highly drinkable beer and even attempting this rarest of styles. Sahti next?

On cask at C'est What's 2010 Fall Festival of Craft Breweries. Like the previous reviewer, I've never had a Gose before, so I realy had no idea what to expect. Pours a cloudy orange with nice layer of white head on top. Turns out it is a wheat beer, which is very apparent from the first smell. Some orange, banana and clove in the smell as well. Taste has some small tartness to it, but in a good way. Very smooth carbonation level. I'd definitely order this again if it ever makes it way to Toronto again.

On cask at C'est What's Fall Festival. My first gose, not sure what to expect here.
Pours an unfiltered light golden orange, with white head. Mild lacing and good retention. Nose is full of orange peel, spice (coriander presumably?), banana and a ton a wheat. Taste is an absolute assault of bananas with a touch of coriander again and some whole wheat bread. Just overwhelmingly full of banana. This screams hefe-weisse to me on both accounts, but there is some mild tartness that separates it from being such. Medium high carbonation, with a bit of a spritz at the end but some high refreshing drinkability. Had they released this at some point this summer, I would've been chasing this regularly. Impressive.
