On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden body. Small white head. Retains well. Thick collar and some lacing.

Smell - Wheat. Mild acidity. Not a strong aroma.

Taste - Wheat is again the strongest. Mild sourness. Saltiness is also mild.

Mouthfeel - Very light. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Drinkable for what it is, but not a tremendously interesting beer.

A: Fairly clear straw to light golden. One finger white head, quickly popping to light film, no lacing.

S: Lemon verbena, woodsy lemongrass. Grainy coriander. Herbaceous and grassy-dandelion, hibiscus comes to mind. Salt scent. Sweet floral apple blossoms and rose petal. Subdued and intricate.

M: Orange dry in effect. Light and crisp in finish. Mouth puckering. Could use a little more effervescence.

T: Kinda tastes like a dry French cider. Sulfur and salt balance an astringency reminiscent of orange pulp rather than harsh lemon rind or peel. Dandelion with grassy notes. Lightly sweet from pear and apple. Lemon citrus. Nice salty balance.

This is my very first gose, and based on this one little can, it it one intriguing style of beer. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head with good retention. Big aromas of sour fruit (sour apple and unripened cherries) and salty marshlands are dominant, with a bit of the wheatiness detectable as well. Taste is primarily a swirl of saltiness and tart fruity notes like apricot and pear. Extremely dry finish. The saltiness greatly enhanced my enjoyment of a sweet nectarine. Overall, I dig this beer and feel inspired to seek out new goses.
