Notes/Commercial Description:
Traditional German style gose made with a hint of salt and coriander. This is our first attempt at a Gose and it is amazing. Tart, light, and refreshing.

Enjoyed on tap from McCoy's. Poured into a 16 oz pilsner glass with a flared rim at the top. The notes on their blog mention that the beer was brewed in honor of the Foundry's (a tap house owned by the McCoy's people) birthday.

Appearance - Only the second gose I've been able to sample, and this one is completely different from the last. Head is about a half finger and lingers around the edges, but not very aggressive. Body is a hazy rich orangish-yellow.

Smell - Notes of lemongrass, spiciness and crisp wheaty aromas

Taste - BAM! Reminds me a great deal of a Berliner Weisse because this thing has a definite pucker factor to it. Notes of fresh-squeezed lemon, a hint of coriander, and I do sense the salt, in the same way you can "taste" salt on a meal because it magnifies the flavors of the beer. There is a faint wheat element to the taste as well.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is on the light side of medium, with a light and refreshingly crisp finish. Dry on the tongue after swallowing and continues to tease those sour-sensing tastebuds.

Overall, a fantastic beer and one that I hope they brew on the regular. Great to have access to a locally-made sour beer that packs a wallop on the palate and not the wallet.
