Appearance is cloudy yellow, very little head - dropped down quickly.

I am NOT a fan of the aroma. I am looking and hoping for coriander but all I am getting is a sour funk up my nostrils.

Taste is better than I expected from initial whiff. Lots of sour lemon with a salty finish. I am also sensing the coriander on the back end.

Only my second ever gose so I rate as a newbie. Better as it warms up and my palette gets used to the tartness that is ever so present.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

look: clear yellow. fat, fluffy white head.
smell: Citrusy tart. Fairly rich with grain and salt.
taste: Things come together nicely in the taste. tart and sour and salty w/o any of taking over. Surprisingly drinkable.
overall: Not gonna win my heart from the big stouts and barleys but a nice change of pace.
