APPEARANCE: A huge head foams up on this beer right away, even with a very careful and slow pour. It does not last long, however, it’s gone within 15 seconds. The beer itself is a very pale yellow and there are only a handful of bubbles beneath the surface, and by a handful I mean like seven or eight. There is no lacing at all.

SMELL: Very salty. I can’t smell much else.

TASTE: Apparently, I am very sensitive to salt because that is almost all I can taste at first. After a few sips some tart lemon develops with a strong bready flavor.

MOUTHFEEL: The Gose starts out dry, but builds in sweetness throughout the sip. It’s light-bodied and goes down easy.

OVERALL: I have a very hard time with the Gose style. This is one of the better examples I have tried however. I think the tartness and the fact that it wasn’t completely, 100% overwhelming in the salt department.

A big shout out to the super woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. This beer came gushing out of the can despite no agitation. Has a pale yellow color with a 2 inch head. Smell is very sour, some salt as well. Taste was not good. Very sour, tart, lemons, a bit salty as well. Feels light and sour in the mouth and while others may like this flavor profile, it's not for me. i didn't care much for this one.

At first I took a sip directly from the can. (don't do this - It tasted like vomit)

I was about to throw it away but I decided to do it right and pour it in a glass.

Nice smell. Nice head(at first - didn't last)

The taste was acceptable. (For some reason drinking it from a glass and letting it breath a little took the taste of vomit away)

Who knows maybe I got a bad batch. If anyone else has the same experience please let me know.
