4.08/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Heavily hazed, dirtied yellow body with a thin, dissipating, white head. Nil lacing.

Smell: Sourish, briny nose with a touch of sourdough, wheat, and spoiled lemons that presents just a slightly fruitier quality than its predecessor.

Taste: Slight, muddled graininess, damp straw, and the sourdough with a vein of cream of wheat underneath the staunch, salty, lactic flavors. Jarring jolt of lemon juice bursts onto the scene soon, as with the original, but more of a defined, authentic fruitiness. The coriander remains rather subtle beneath the peppier elements. Still rather salty. Remains sour and tart on the salty, minerally, saliva-rushing finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Medium-plus.

Overall: Skanky and tart, but deliciously, even refreshingly so. Can you imagine? Can y-- Well, you can probably imagine, but yeah. Skanky and tart!

3.88/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a - poured a one finger thick fizzy, off-white head into a tulip glass that disappeared quickly. the body was a hazy straw golden color.
s - juicy aroma with some breadiness.
t - much juicier tasting than gose and the wheat comes through more.
m - medium, bubbly.
o - not as tart or salty as their gose and as stated above much juicier. delicious beer but i prefer gose as it is saltier and more tart to me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle dated of 12/18/13 poured into a pint glass...

A - Yellow as the sun in color, frothy white head with moderate lace retention

S - Straight lemons up in here. So tart with a little wheat mixed in

T - Lemonade! Salt, coriander, and wheat are generously involved here. Absolutely puckering. Some lime juice as well, grassy.

M - Thin feel, mild carbonation, biting down the palate

O - This is an excellent Gose. Very very tart but seems to temper as it warms. One of my favorites I've ever had of the style, bravo

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a goblet. Acquired as a generous extra in a trade with dbrelsfo, thank you!!

A- Pours a hazy, dull lemonade-colored body with a fizzy white head that reduces quickly and doesn't leave any lacing or retention.

S- Lots of lemon juice, lime juice, a citrusy aroma that I'm assuming is gozu, lemon zest, some wheat and malt.

T- Sour lactic acid, lemon juice, tart citrus, some spice, slightly salty on the follow through. Subtle malty/bready on the aftertaste. The sourness is not like that of a wild ale, which have a funkier flavor.

M- Light, crisp, refreshing, highly carbonated.

A very nice change of pace from the higher ABV beers that I've been drinking. I like it, the refreshing citrus is nicely balanced and not too overbearing.
