huge thanks to 2000drafts for sending me a 2nd box of extras...just insanity. enjoyed the other day from a westbrook snifter...reviewed from notes. pours a really murky cloudy orange yellow. cloudier than the gose. nose is sweet n sour and salty with a bit of a fruity tartness that you don't find in the gose. taste matches the nose. a bit more full than gose and less salty/sour, but along the lines of gose with a twist. super refreshing and great warm weather beer. wish i could find this locally.

Bottle into Russian River stem.

Appearance is hazy, gritty pale yellow with a small white head that dies to the smallest of bubbly rings around the edge of the glass.

Aroma is much of the standard Gose but with a tropical fruitiness on top. Given this beer is 5 months old not sure if the nose has weakened with time. Lemon, sea water, hints of mango, coriander, and a kiwi or loquat bitter fruitiness in the distance.

The palate delivers what I think is a more drinkable Gose than it's sibling. A fruit juice sweetness balances out the sour nicely while not shutting out the brine like spirit of the beer. I am certain it's less fruity than it probably was fresh as there is a dose of earthy pulp like fruit tannin flavor as well but it's quite the nice companion to the flavor profile as it adds some depth and roundness to the overall experience. Drinking really nice.

Mouthfeel is light with lower carbonation than the standard. I think a bit more bubbly would do this beer some good.

Overall I like this better than the standard Gose. Even at this age. The yuzu fruit juice really adds a tropical like twist to the original and surprisingly possibly some sweetness. Highly crushable, flavorful, and light summer drinker.
