I like Gose, it was my newly discovered accidental style of the year. I finally had the opportunity to try this one and it was a pleasant change of pace from all the bold dark beers I have been drinking this winter/late fall.

Appearance: Gose's are not all that attractive in this respect. Hazy yellow decent amount of head. Traditional look to the color.

Aroma: Not too much of the funkiness that some of these have, it does have a bit of the rancid wheat thing going on. Not really strong in that department, lemon zest and hard cider in the nose.

Taste: A little funkiness, but pretty mild. Lemon and salt, some green apple cider notes and finishes really clean.

Overall: Probably the best Gose I have had. I look forward to drinking a lot more of this style in the new year to come, especially in the warmer months!

Wonderful and delicious but a tad too salty with a nice bitterness.

Pours a slightly murky golden amber color with a fluffy white head. The head dissipates almost immediately and leaves no lacing on the glass. The aroma is excellent, filled with citrus fruit, coriander spice, and sea salt. The taste follows suit but lactic sourness dominates. Overall, it's light bodied, very dry and refreshing.

I haven't had many beers in this style to compare this one with, but if you put this side by side with Anderson Valley's The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose, I don't think I would be able to tell the difference. Made an excellent pairing with a Thai yellow curry dish. The citrus in the beer really goes nicely with the bright flavors of the curry and the sourness cuts right through the spice.

Super flavorful and I didn't find it overly salty as is a turnoff for me in some Goses. Great beer!

This was the second gose I've tried and arguably my favorite. I loved the sour notes and how clean and refreshing this beer was!

Light and crisp in nature, if you are a fan of tasty sours, this one will do you right! at 4% abv, you can easily have a six pack or two...
