Notes/Commercial Description:
This is our interpretation of Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), a traditional German-style sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback.

4.55/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - The Gose was a cloudy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head.

Smell - The beer smells like a wheat beer for the most part, but notes of lemon and salt sneak into the picture.

Taste - On the initial taste, I detect lemon but then the saltiness comes in. It is truly amazing as it is salt in liquid form, but it will not give you sodium overload. Toward the back, the sour ntes become more apparent. In a sentence, this is liquid salted wheat with a sour aftertaste. Delicious!

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel runs a little thick like a good wheat beer, leaving a nice sour coating on the tongue.

Overall - I have had the style before. Maybe the beer was not as good. Maybe I was not ready to appreciate the style. One way or another, I love this beer.
