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.

Aroma is lemony, saline, crackery, and slightly funky. Lemon dominates, but there's some musty character. Flavor is extremely acidic. Citric and acetic acid are huge upfront, though lactic surfaces mid palate, and acetic and citric carry into the finish. One of the more sour examples of the style. Salt weaves throughout, but it's countered by lightly bready malt in the finish. A little too acetic. Wish lactic were less overwhelmed.

Appearance: pours with two fingers of bubbly head which quickly dissipated to nil. The color is a darker straw yellow that is completely cloudy. Minimal active carbonation.

Smell: Salt and dried fruits on the front. Coriander warms after the front with a light, lingering funk hanging around. Biscuity malts win out on the back end with some well placed tropical fruits popping through. Saltiness carries throughout the aroma.

Taste: An easy wheat front is quickly overtaken by a balanced combination of salt and sour. Waves of funk and salt continue to splash over the palate and are unrelenting. Touches of fruit and straw pick up on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Palate is left dry which really allows wheat, fruit, and funky flavors to shine through. Carbonation is low but fitting.

Overall: Been looking forward to this beer for a long time. Super tasty and levels of complexity that many other Gose do not have. I could crush this all day long.

Golden straw color with a stark white head that fades fast and leaves little to no lacing. Smell of wheat, grain, funk, lemon, lime, and sea breeze. Flavor opens up with a nice tart lemon and lime bite. Notes of grains from the wheat weave into the mix. Finish brings a tart, spicy and salty finish. Prickly mouthfeel from the carbonation, light body and dry finish is nearly perfect. Overall this is just a great beer that's refreshing and different.
