Siding as much with berlinerweiss and fruited Belgian sours as it does with the salty gose, the high tartness, sharp acidity and rich mineral character offers much reward and equally as much challenge.

Bright in its deep straw pour, the common wheaty haze masks any brilliant clarity. Its unfiltered character pushes an abundance of carbonation to the rim, nearly billowing with champagne like streams and popping. High tartness tingles the nose with dried lime, crabapple, grapefruit and green apple. Zesty flavors spring from the tongue, leaving behind a terse bread and slim sweetness.

Upon the middle, any bread or sweet tastes are short-lived as the ale prefers a bracing acidity in any absence of meaningful body or sweet balance. Those high citrus flavors take full command and offer a mineral character that's as much of iron as it is of salt.

Complete dryness overtakes the finish as the ale closes with a snap. Elements of citrus peel, soft perfume and sour white grapes give its waning moments a convincing champagne character, if not for the linger of wheat that returns in echoes.
