3/5 rDev -22.1%
A:Pours an opaque golden color with a white head.
S: Some grapefruit peel, some orange, a little peach in the nose.
T: Some lemon, some tart grapefruit, orange, a little malt, a little peach and a salty finish.
M: Light bodied and smooth.
O: Not really my kind of beer, but this is the first I've ever had, and I hated my first Kriek, so I may revisit this one in a couple years if I find more of the style.

4/5 rDev +3.9%
Poured from a 12 oz can into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.
A: 4.0 Pale golden yellow body with great clarity. 1/2 finger soapy, white head. Below average retention with no lacing to speak of, but not uncommon for a Gose.
S: 3.75 Earthy, citrusy sour with notes of lemon, lime, indistinct berry. Salt is definitely present. Lightly grassy.
T: 4.0 Moderate salinity and citric acid sour hit first and largely persist. The suggestion of hops bring a minuscule amount of bitterness to a regardlessly dry, fairly clean finish. A bit of lingering salt and lemon juice in the aftertaste. No alcohol of note.
M: 4.0 Low-to-moderate carbonation with a light body - fitting to style. This one drinks free and easy.
O: 3.75 I certainly enjoy a Gose and enjoy this beer. Saltier and more sour than the average German offering and lacks a certain sophistication, but definitely heads above other efforts I've had stateside.

Probably the second best American-made Gose behind Westbrook's. It's not nearly as mouth-puckeringly sour as the WB version, but still has a nice acidic kick and a great balance of malt, wheat and sea salt.
