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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip glass

A: Pale yellow, opaque, with a half finger head that dissipates quickly. Thick lacing.

S: Wheat, salt, coriander.

T: Tart and salty. Not as sour as I expected. Coriander, lemon and wheat pop in to give it a summer appeal. But the salt overwhelms, pushing everything else to the back seat.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: Too salty for my taste. This beer is more of a novelty that should be shared at tastings just to finish off the can.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big fizzy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is tart lemon, salt and wheat malts.

The flavor is tart and sweet lemon with some salt in the background. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid gose with lots of tart sour lemon and some salt.

So Lurkaholic just gives me this, my #1 want the other day. Well let me tell you, his generosity is only exceeded by his handsomeness. Thanks buddy!! I will have to remember to ask you for more of your awesome beer in the future.

Appearance. Pours a very hazy honey-gold with a thin white head that fades quickly.

Smell. Lemon and other sour citrus juices, some sweet grainy wheat and a little bit briny.

Taste. Nice lime juice sourness, light grainy wheat with just a touch of sweetness, maybe a little musty funk there as well. Nice.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Very nice, crisp and pleasant, completely crushable. Thanks again Tom!!!
