And the award for the most growlers provided to a tasting group goes to...(drum roll)...drabmuh. Yet again, thanks Matt!

The beer appears clear and golden orange hued with a small white head. Spices, particularly of the Christmas (or holiday, if you prefer) variety. Pretty well balanced, though cinnamon stands out a bit. Only a light helping of salt. Personally, I like the briny quality of a bold gose, but this one is still pretty tasty. I would have it again, albeit in small quantities.

From 02/11/12 notes. Growler shared by drabmuh at a recent Cascade tasting. Poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a bright yellow-orange color with two inches of white head and low to moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells funky, of salt, citrus hops, fruit, and earthy notes.

t - Tastes of citrus, sour fruits, salt, fruity malts, and light funk. More sourness then the nose, and a step up.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a very good gose. Haven't had a ton of them but this is one of the better ones I've had. Would like to try their other versions.

One of the best goses I've ever had and I've had a few. Beer served in a snifter.

Beer is yellow, with a mild haze, decent head, no lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is nice, mildly funky, a little lactic, a little sweet.

Beer is nice, not overwhelmingly salty but definitely there, a great little beer. Nice finish, mild funk, good lactic character. I could have a lot of this beer. Surprising to see it is 6%, not detectable at all.

Many thanks to drabmuh for sharing this growler.

Appearance: golden-yellow with touches of orange and peach; good white head

Smell: Light citrus, spice, salt, and funk with some floral notes.

Taste: Very nice, light salt and faint funk, along with some good citrus notes and a touch of pine.

Overall: very nice gose, I hope I can try this one again. Easy drinking and I am a bit surprised to see it is 6%.

Big thanks to drabmuh for securing this growler and bringing it to the Cascade tasting. Served in a Cascade Barrel House goblet.

Pours a fairly-clear orange color with a nice white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose has a nice combination of cranberry, citrus, and lacto. Nothing over the top, but plenty there.

The flavor hits the same notes, with the spice and fruit mixing really well with the acid. Very light salty note, which goes well with the acidity. Mouthfeel is very light with a dry, acidic finish. Really impressive from the folks in Portland.

First had: on tap at Cascade, Portland, OR
'09 vintage tasted in Dec. '11.

Cascade seems to be a big fan of this style, and it's a good thing too, because I haven't had many goses...actually this might be one of only two or three I've ever sampled. I'm glad it was on tap for me to try.

Poured a golden yellow, slightly hazy, with a small white head. Aroma of gingery spice, light fruit and lemon zest. Taste was nicely complex, with tastes of tart fruits up front--cherries, cranberries--floral (there is hibiscus in it) and perfumey mid-palate, with a distinct saline finish that lingered on the tongue for a few seconds. Some light notes of cinnamon and ginger came out after a few more sips. Light-medium body, but full of flavor, distinct and very drinkable.

2011 vintage. I tried an older one later, but unfortunately didn't make any more notes on it.

Good lace, pale white head, golden body.

Light crisp nose, vinous, champagne-like.

Tart vinegar sting wears off into sweet tart apple. Well blended.

Crisp, bright feel, and again, champagne-like.

On tap at the barrel room today.

The beer pours a slightly hazy, solid gold color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose, I get a considerable amount of ginger and juniper berries, with a hint of lemon and lime. The flavor profile is pretty complex, showing more ginger and juniper, but with some vanilla and fruit cocktail flavors as well. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, with a fairly long finish. Drinkability is good, with the flavor complexity making me want to savor this beer slowly. Yet another solid beer from Cascade.

The bar that I had this at called this "Winter Gose", I'm assuming this is the same beer. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a coppery honey gold color with just under 1/2 inch of white head that had decent retention and lacing.

The aroma was dominantly grain with a slight salt scent in the background. The taste was very good, tangy grains, a bit of saltiness and a mildly tart finish.

The body was nice and smooth, but a bit sharp. Drinkability was very good, I'll be going back for more of this beer. Overall, a good beer, a bit fuller and richer than the other couple examples of the style I've had. Worth trying if you see it.

Edit 2/25/12: Had this again last night in a tulip. The beer seems to have stayed fairly consistent, my notes from last night matched almost identically. The only change is that I'm changing the taste score to 4, from 3.5. I really like this beer a lot, a must try if you see it.
