Hazy pale gold with plenty of white head that fades to a ring of foam after about three minutes leaving spots of lace behind. Smell is tart maybe citrus.
Taste is puckering lemon zest with maybe a hint of yeast.
Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation.
Overall a bit like unsweetened lemonade. Very tart!

I am not a fan of sour. In my humble opinion, any sour flavor does not belong in my beer.

This is my first time trying a Gose, and I must say this might be my new favourite beer type. Unlike anything I've ever tasted before, this will definitely be one I keep coming back to!

Yay cans!

Chugs out of the can heavily and yields a huge 3+ finger head that I have to wait to dissipate before continuing the pour, which it does so slowly, mild soapy lacing, crystal clear pale tan wheat colored.

Nose is quite doughy and grainy, fresh almost raw sour dough, touch of citrus zest and perhaps coriander but not sure as my mind might be adding that, a little earthiness, mild cracker wheat like too.

Taste starts tart and salty, a strange combo out front, actually turns sour with a sour lemon flavor, very tart, didn't expect that, with a bit of a salt flavor that disappears quickly, but then returns on the back end and finish. A big sour dough fresh bread flavor, raw dough and cracker wheat, little toasty, with again faint coriander I think, but that may be from the yeast, and a little citrus orange note. Finish adds a bit of a bitter rind note, little more salt, big crackery doughy wheat flavor, and more tartness.

Mouth is light bodied, decent carb, a little crispness and flemmy note at the same time.

Overall interesting, I'm mixed on it, it is quite refreshing and enjoyable, but so sour and tart, nice blend of the salt and flavors, actually it was pretty nice for a gose.

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The beer is a cloudy burnt golden color with a quickly dissipated light cream colored head. Very light lacing remains on the glass.

Aroma: Tart citrus, faint yeasty strains, very subtle breadiness.

Taste: Lemon tart all the way. Any kind of malt or grain body gets hidden under citrus and tart bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light, dry.

Overall: Too tart for me to session, but definitely an enjoyable beer, perhaps better reserved for July and not late November.
