Snagged a 32 oz "growler" at BeerMongers in PDX. Tapped into it next day at home.
Pours flat into my Russian River snifter.
Description is "slightly sour". Are you kidding me? Suck your cheeks into your throat lemony sour!
Love it!
High marks for pushing the envelope for flavor and style.
Not at all a session beer. One and done. But a nice summer drink that beats the hell out of cider or something worse.

Ordered a glass at the barrel house in Portland after getting sweaty on my bike. Damn this hit the spot. This hazy yellow beer is sour, but not wild. It has a straightforward, almost clean tang. The malts are very mild under the sour, with a subtle bready wheat and toast character. Instead of the banana and spice of normal German wheat, this is big on the tangy grapefruit and lemon zest sour.

On tap @ the Raccoon Lodge & Brewpub (Portland, OR) on 9/5/11. Served in a teardrop goblet.

Pours a crystal clear slightly coppery gold in the glass, with a thin head of bright-white foam. This maintains some foamy edges and puts up a moderately robust cascade that quickly subsides, not leaving back a whole lot of lacing. The coriander jumps out immediately in the nose, which mingles with a good bit of sweet grains and fruit. There is a gentle grassiness that rides along the back and I’m even picking up a touch of salt as well.

The taste starts with a combination of sweetness and fruit up front, before this spreads out into the mouth with more of a light grassy bitterness. Some tartness creeps in along the back, lingering in a relatively dry finish a bit along, with some trailing spicy coriander character. Like the nose, you have to pay attention, but there is a light saltiness to this, which mostly hangs around with those sweet flavors from the malt and fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a lively and crisp carbonation that prickles the mouth with flavors. This has a nice breeziness to it in the mouth.

This was my first shot at trying a Gose and I really liked it. There’s a solid base of flavorful sweetness and spice to this but then the tartness and crispness came in to keep this not only easy drinking but even a bit quenching on the palate as well. This was unique but still very accessible to me. I’m glad that I gave it shot and I’d definitely be willing to check out others like it down the line.

Growler courtesy of drabmuh. Served in a snifter.

Pours a clear golden color with a small white head without much retention and no real lacing. The nose carries a slight cider character with a light bit of malt. The flavor is a tiny bit malty with a very light dosing of salt and a bit of a red-apple character. Mild cider. Light body with good carbonation and a slight dryness. Fairly good, though quite plain.

on-tap at The Barrel House.

Pours a clear golden-yellow with a thin, short-lived white head.

The aroma is of wheat, with a light briny, salty finish.

The taste follows the nose, with wheat notes, a light citric and acidic note and a salty finish.

The mouthfeel is medium boded with a crisp, refreshing finish.

A very enjoyable summer beer, matches well with what I've come to expect in a gose.
