Take a look at the pineapple juice in your buddy's glass, now look at your glass of Gose. Can you tell a difference? It closely resembles pinapple juice with some bubble rising from the bottom. It is an extremely hazy gold with a thick white head that fades.
This smells like leather and funky pineapple, there seems to be a theme here. The pineapple scent lacks the sweetness but has all of the sour, plus the added funk of animal hide.
If there is any pineapple in the flavor, it is only the sour part of the pineapple. In fact, strip a pineapple of all of its sweetness and add some lemon juice, water, a dash of salt, and a spritz of a good Hefeweizen, and you've got yourself something that probably come close to this. It's pretty refreshing.
This stuff is so clean, what a great palate cleanser. There is no lingering film, it isn't syrupy, and there is just enough pucker to keep things exciting without being overwhelming.
Totally good beer.

No date stamped on bottom of can at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of spice and salt
Head small (3 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to irregular ring and layer
Lacing poor – a few medium islands with varying sized bubbles
Body light yellow, cloudy
Flavor tart and salty with an odd spicyness and a little citrus. No malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation.
I was surprised to see coriander as an ingredient. I’m most familiar with this in various Belgium-styled ales but the flavor and aroma here are very different. This is a very refreshing and tasty brew.
