32oz growler into a matching CCB snifter. The brew pours a clouded light yellow color with a finger of white froth that settles back to thin film across the top. Spotty lace sticks to the glass.

Why does this beer smell like chicken salad? A hint of cooked celery, chicken and starts to get off-putting and almost fishy. This smells like a prank...seriously. Digging deeper, there is some spoiled grain aspect, corn and some pleasant lemony lacto character somewhat like yogurt.

Despite the aroma being pretty strange...well, actually freakish. The taste is quite good with a lemony lactic tartness that gives way to a fresh bread/cracker-like maltiness to the finish. Strong greek yogurt tang to this and mild fruity quality when bigger sips are taken.

This is a light bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. It is terribly funky in a strange way across the nose but the flavor is pleasant and clean. I had no issues consuming 32oz of this in 1 sitting and would do so again if the opportunity presented itself. Just dont ask me to smell it...eh.

A buddy of mine brought me up a gallon (yes gallon) growler of this from the CCB tasting room. Poured it into New Glarus flute.

Great pale yellow color with a nice short-lasting head. The smell is funky, but in a good way. The overall taste is a tart lemony zest with a great malty, bready aftertaste that lingers. Exactly what I like from Berliners and Goses. Can't get enough of the aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall, this is exactly what I was hoping it would be and glad to have a full gallon to enjoy throughout the week.
