On-tap at Beachwood BBQ. I don't get the reference in the beer's name, so I suspect that it's a Boont County thing. On to the beer:

Pale yellow colored with golden hues. Not much head on the pour, but not much was expected per style. The aroma has a touch of tartness, and a gentler kiss of salt. Quite mild so far.

The taste has a tartness which is middling. Kisses of lemon and apple give the beer a solid character, and there's just a note of salt. Vague fruitness creeps into the scene. The beer is light bodied and overall refreshing. A hardcore gose lover might expect more, but as a refresher or someone looking to get into the style, this could work.

I just tried this Gose beers this summer. This one is pretty good too me. Excellent thrist quencher after a long days work.

Pours a amberish yellow with nice swirling into the glass. Pour finishes with a 1/2 finger white head that dissipates quickly. To me the taste is wate...boom sour! The sour is very present, but not the only thing you taste. Really can't get over how easy to drink this one is. A 32 oz growler is gone within a few min. Good thing is it's also extremely light on alcohol, so quenching your thirst shouldn't kill you.

12 oz can. Pours hazy straw yellow with a big fizzy white headthat goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is lactic (slight butyric) wheaty malts and salt.

The flavor is sweet lactic fruit with some salt and tartness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, nice tart lactic fruit with a bit of salt. One of the better goses I've had. A nice refreshing summer beer.

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, high carbonation, gold yellow in color, clear

Smell: salt and wheat

Taste: big wheat, slight sourness, pilsner malt, and salt--especially on the finish

Mouthfeel: light body, sweet with prickly saltiness, medium-high carbonation

Overall: A solid, sessionable gose. Really appreciate the creativity in this one. I have had better in the style that have the salt a bit more pronounced, but this is a good beer that I wish I would have gotten a six pack of.
