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.

4.05/5  rDev -3.1%

I picked this up at Oliver's in Albany, enjoyed from the can in a cervoise chilled.

The color is pale golden with haze and white head that rises and falls to a ring of beading with spotty lace. The smell has lemon and zest odor with light wheat which has a light toasted and slight salty hint with mineral and light earthy aroma. The feel is very good with moderately light body and lots of sour in the feel with medium high carbonation and citrus tanginess with saltiness not out of balance and linger tart texure that leaves the palate dry.

The flavor is very citrus and tangy with zesty bright wheat and fruity yeast w/ slight salted lemon aspect with mild wheat flavor which is dominated by the sour elements from the yeast. There is also an earthy quality toward the end with more sour and salt lingering after the swallow. Overall this is great a lot more sour than traditional versions but a solid take on the style and refreshing - very good worthy of a try if you like sour wheats.

Light, crisp, at 4% ABV I can pretty much drink a six pack in one sitting of a Netflix movie

Poured from can into small tasting glass. Date of review is 7/05/14, GO AMERICA!

Appearance- Thin dark white head that disappears immediately. Murky pale orange color with high carbonation. I do not know what the style is supposed to look like, but this is pleasant.

Smell- Salty and lemony are the two major scents. I get orange peel as well. This may be a bit weird, but it smells fruity, almost like a fruit roll-up or gushers.

Taste- So much happening in this 4% ABV beer! Just like in the nose I get lemon and salt right away. There is a bready earthiness to this beer as well. Fruitiness is also present with a lingering ocean taste.

Mouthfeel- Sweet, sour, bitter and salty all at once. This is like a Picasso painting in a glass. I have no idea how this is done, but I am very happy that someone knows.

Overall- Just fantastic in every way. This is easily the best tasting low alcohol beer I have ever tried. I could drink about 24 of these in a day and be a happy man.
