Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is straw, big white head that dissipates to a ring, no lacing; 3.75

Aroma is pretty neutral malt with a little tartness; 3.5

Taste is a nice blend of flavors: pilsen malt is quickly overtaken by a sweet tartness that then finishes dry with a light saltiness; a little sweet but still quite good in flavor with the saltiness lingering well; 3.75

Mouthfeel is sweet and crisp tart at first, then very dry presence on the tongue; 3.75

Overall good beer that is a little sweeter than other goses but very good flavors and dry saltiness

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.

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 I enjoyed 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.
