Pours turbid golden yellow with a tall, frothy head. The aroma is candy-like, with wheat and hints of lime. The flavor profile follows suit. The salty and sour elements compliment each other wonderfully. Lime flavors dominate the palate on the initial taste, with the saltiness lingering toward the back of the tongue. The saltiness also accentuates "tongue-smacking" that occurs with the sour flavors. Regarding the mouthfeel, the carbonation is just right for the flavor profile. Honestly, it's hard to drink this beer one sip at a time--it's that good. It's perfect for the summer.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a foggy gold-tinted yellow color with a quickly fading head. Tart, wheaty aroma...sourdough, lemon/lime, and just a whiff of coriander. Intensely sour from the start, acidic and crisp. Lemon and lime juices and salt brings to mind refreshing pool-side beverages. Fairly light and puckering, leaving the gums dry. Not sure I've ever had a Gose quite this sour. Refreshing!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
