Poured from a 12 ounce can into a teku.
The pour produces an inch and a half of feathery, pale white foam that quickly dissipates into a thin layer of lace atop the body. The body is a pale straw color with some golden hues. It's somewhat hazy looking and there seems to be little carbonation.
A lot of tartness, lactic acid and funk on the nose here. I catch a hint of salt, but it is very subtle. The underlying wheat base peeks through ever so slightly as well.
There's something berry-like to the tartness here and perhaps a hint of apple cider, then a good amount of salt emerges. Beneath it all, just as in the aroma, is a wheaty base and only the slightest of pale malt flavors. I really enjoy the flavor of this.
Drinkability is huge with this beer. It's so light and refreshing that one could easily throw one back without taking notice of the bevy of sensations going on. There are champagne-like qualities, a pronounced tartness, and a dry, salty finish. It's quite a ride.
This beer is just great. AV can't produce enough of this. I wish they'd send some to New Mexico already, I don't know what the hang up is there. I'm going to go ahead and say I like this better than Westbrook Gose and I feel this is more true to style.

A - Light, pale yellow, like a witbier. Small, bubbly head.
S - Sea salt, tang, lemons, wheat, coriander.
T - Bright lemon, tangy salt, light malt, allspice and coriander. Satisfying, earthy and complex.
M - Effervescent, super light and easy to quaff.
O - Outstanding American gose. A real treat and surprise from the brewery.

12 fl oz. can bought on a whim and to discover that the heck a Gose is.
Used a standard US pint glass.
A -Light wheat beer color, minimal (very minimal) head with some lacing. Nothing spectacular looking, but clearly it's beer.
S - The aroma is complex...smelled sour, wheat-like with a hint of pepper.
T - Wow, what a weird yet wonderful taste. Taste of wheat beer yet sour, a bit of spiciness, and a salty taste near the end. That's a heck of a lot of tastes packed into a 12 ounce can.
M - Surprisingly large amount of body for what is labelled as a session ale (only 4.2% alcohol). Despite this, it would be easy to slam down several of these over the course of an evening.
Well, I'm incredibly happy I tried this beer. Gose is definitely something I'll keep an eye out for, as I'm a fan of all things sour. That said, I think think this is a beer you'll either love or hate - no in between on this one. .
