served on-tap at Egan's, Tuscaloosa, AL, into a pint glass

Pours a hazy, golden yellow color. It looks like a wheat beer should. There's 1.5 fingers of white head. It's lacking in lacing, if you want to nitpick.

The aroma, while not poor for the style, leaves room for concern. It doesn't have any sense of a lactic sharpness. It does, however, achieve everything else that a Gose is supposed to: you get a ton of wheat, you get some light coriander notes, and the yeast doesn't throw off too many esters.

The flavor confirms the nose in that this is not as sour as a Gose should be. The lactic acid note in this beer can be described, at best, as "trace." BUT the beer has everything else: wheat flavor in droves, a coriander-dominated finish, a balanced amount of salt to give that sports drink effect. This remains a very refreshing beer, even if it lacks the sourness indicative of the style.

Overall, this is a very refreshing wheat beer. I would like to be able to drink pints of this all throughout the summer months. This is my favorite beer from Back Forty thus far. Nice work, fellas.
