I held off on reviewing this beer because its evident I don't like Goses. It was broken out at a tasting. Since I'm still haunted by this beer, I think a review is in order.
Pours a frightening wine like yellow with ominous chemistry lab fizzing. Uh oh. Smells salty. Very salty. Uh oh x2. I'm actually gonna drink this stuff? Just like ocean water. Salty, organic, get it out of my mouth please!
Everything else from the Bruery I've loved and been grateful for the chance to try. You gotta hand it to em though. The hallmark of a great brewery is that their bad beers are not meek disappointments but rather daring fiascos. By that measure the Bruery is great. For all I know this is action an exemplary Gose. Do me a favor, have some other Goses and get back to me. I'll take your word for it.

From notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over and then leaving it in my fridge for a few weeks. No seriously, that was great.
The beer pours a faded golden straw color, mostly transparent with a little bit of haze. A white cap froths up with the initial pour before slowly fading.
Salt of the Earth definitely has a strange nose. There is a light dry malt character that reminds me of a saison, a strong burst of lemon zest, some saltiness, and some vegetal and skunky notes that are not that pleasant.
The flavor starts with a light, dry, crackery malt with a little bit of pepper. A strong lemon tartness is full and strong without being piercing. Some other light fruits are noticeable as well. Toward the end of the sip it definitely turns salty. The salt proves to dry the mouth out further and leave my mouth with milder version of what dying of thirst must be like. There is a mushroom and vegetal flavor that covers the entire sip. The carbonation is slightly crisp, and the beer has a smooth, light body. It is very dry, a sensation that is only accentuated by the saltiness.
Overall this was rough enough that I did not want to finish my glass.
