4.1/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
22 oz. bottle served in a Westbrook Tulip. Bottled 4/23/13 and enjoyed 7/20/13. Thanks to rnorgart for the bottle.
A: Pours a light yellowish color with a chilled haze to it. A thin white head forms on the pour and fizzles quickl to a thin ring. Trace amounts of splotchy lace are left down the glass.
S: Slightly acidic in nature with a lot of sweet cracked wheat and lemon grass. A little tart lemon pith and bitterness as well.
T: Same as the nose, but much more complex. Light citrus acidity with some light lemon grass. Sweet cracked wheat and with a hint of white bread. Nice salinity that causes a dryness at the back of the throat on the finish.
M: Light bodied witha nice medium soft carbonation. Dangerously drinkable with a slightly tart and salty finish.
O: A delicious Gose. I really enjoyed this one. Nicely balanced with a high drinkability. I'm interested in trying the cans that will be fresher than the bottle.

4.26/5 rDev +2.2%

Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter. Purchased in Myrtle Beach this past weekend, canned 3 weeks ago on 6/16/14.
A - Pours a dull, hazy yellow-orange body with a 2 finger white head that reduces to a layer of foam to leave spotty lacing.
S - Hard to explain.. I've drank multiple cases of this beer and I still can't exactly put my finger on the specific aromas/tastes, you just have to try it! I definitely get lemon juice, citrus rind, some spices, light malt, bready.
T - Perfectly tart, borderline sour, definitely salty upfront.. like yellow gatorade. The follow through has subtle pale malt notes, coriander and clove, and a subtle fruitiness.
M - Crisp, refreshing, light, and easy to drink. The shining point of this beer.
I call this the perfect session beer. If you're into sours, you'll like this as a drinkable brew that you can drink a lot of to get your sour fix, as opposed to having to crack open expensive bombers. Not traditionally funky-sour, but definitely different and definitely good.
