Poured into a Riedel tulip. The liquid is a slightly cloudy pale gold with tons of tiny bubbles sticking to the sides of the glass and rising up quickly. The pour kicks up a thick, pillowy head that fades very quickly and leaves almost no lace.

Aroma is only slightly sour - I get cardamom, lemons, and a slight mustiness.

Taste is pretty sour on the palate, with the slight mustiness peeking through, and then it really takes shape after the swallow. On the swallow, orangey citrus comes out, along with the cardamom, and a sweet feeling (that may be just the lack of sour!) that is wonderful. An ever-so-slight salt flavor on the swallow, but I'm not sure I would have noticed it if I hadn't been looking.

Mouthfeel is thin with tons of carbonation - to style.

Overall, this and the Westbrook are the only goses I've had, and I think this one wins out slightly IMO. It's less sour than Westbrook's, but also lacking the salt flavor the Westbrook had.

i like this as much for the beer as i do for the packaging decision. i am sick of a bomber of gose, its a beer for sessioning and drinking enormous quantities of in hot weather (at least it is for me), so its always frustrating to spend upwards of ten bucks for a bottle i will likely have to share anyway and then move on. a nationwide sixer of gose is the ticket, genius really, and although i know westbrook does it too, they dont come out this way too often. the beer itself is right on too, clean but really tart. not as salty as some, but that mouthfeel and minerality are there, along with a citrusy kick thats new to the style for me, and a ton of carbonation that really makes it an outstanding refresher. salty lemon sort of flavor to the finish, acidic enough, and just really delicious ice cold right from the can. i see they also did a blood orange version of this that i really need to get my hands on!

Nicely tart, slightly sour with a delicious bit of sweet this is a Gose with tempered salt. There's a bit of sour wheat malt, some Apple, pear, citrus, Sweetarts candy and lemon to complete a relatively complex but lightly presented beer. This is incredibly easy to drink and immensely sessionable.

A solid beer. Far more balanced and true to style than many other American interpretations of Gose.
