4.16/5 rDev -0.2%
bottle picked up locally and enjoyed from a westbrook snifter.
a - brew poured a transparent straw yellow with a thin fizzy head that was gone quick. i'm not too familiar with the style but have been told that it is similar to a berliner with salt and in appearance, definitely berliner-like.
s - nice lemon and some wheat. some salty zing...almost like smelling a margarita.
t - very nice. lemon tart with saltiness.
m - unbelievably refreshing for this hot summer day. perfectly hitting the spot. prickly carbonation like a berliner but with a tinge of saltiness like a margarita.
o - i was a bit nervous about the style but had heard good things. sour and salty in a beer is a bit intimidating, but this is super tasty and refreshing. really impressive beer.

Split 2 nights ago with Chico1985. Reviewed fully during consumption on the table. Big thanks to my cousin for sending this my way.
Thanks to my cousin Sonny for sending this up to me.
A- Poured from the can to two glasses for a tasting with an extremely cloudy pale golden body. A small, creamy white head forms but dies out pretty much immediately, within seconds. No head remains and no lace is deposited to the glass. Murky rotten apple juice appearance almost but a bit paler.
S- Tart light fruits lead the way with wheat and a lemony sourness. I get a tiny bit of floral spiciness from the coriander but it doesn't really do much for me here.
T- Very tart, more so than any other example of the style I have had. Lemony lactic sours coat the palate with notes of wheat, apples, white grapes and coriander spicy floralness beyond that. Definite saltiness here that combines with the acidity to create a unique flavor. Crusty wheat bread comes into play in the back end.
MF- Light bodied with a fair creaminess and high end carbonation that accentuates the tartness nicely. Smooth and crisp with that lingering sourness making me want to take another sip.
Drinkable Gose with a pretty intensely sour feel. Wheat, sour, coriander and salt indeed. Sitting down with a few cans of this in the summer would be nice.

A - Cloudy pineapple juice, small head leaves fast to ring, no lace. Lots of chunky stuff at the bottom third of glass.
S - Funky and tart. Nice aroma.
T - Nice mix. A little saltier than I would normally like, but the sour and the funk are nice. Some champagne quality to it too. Nice interpretation.
M - Good carb, sharp tartness, light bodied.
D - I like one, but I don't think it is something I would session, despite the low ABV.

12oz can. Not really sure what this style should look like. Rather becalmed looking compared to most other brews. Hazy yellow gold. Some white head that disappears.
Aroma, Yeasty citrus to me, some minerally saltiness. Wheaty and corn like malt.
Taste, It is quite puckering up front, straight lemon. Dry but not overyly so. Other things come out much later in the finish. Again minerally salt, and a large hay and wheat grain.
High carbonation compared to what the appearance would lead one to believe. Drinks very easy, light body, but it is VERY tart. Never had the style so I guess this is fine.
Feels "trendy" because of the sourness. Probably wouldn't bother with this style again.

Pours a murky yellow with minimal head, no light passage. Nose comprises of bready wheat and lemon zest with hints of tangy lactobacillus. The taste is where this beer shines. Starts with tangy tartness followed by huge notes of candied lemon and lemon zest. This is quickly followed by a dash of sea salt and a grainy wheat to finish. The finish is clean and balanced. A ton of flavor is jam packed into this 4% brew and this shows me how incredibly tasty a gose can be. I can see why people scoop up cases at a time of this, hopefully this somehow finds it's way into Chicago's distribution.
