Canned 9/16, poured into a snifter. Gold, yellow, cloudy with one finger of off yellow head. Good retention. Smells of fresh lemon and some tart candy. Mouth feel is fizzy and sharp but exactly what was expected. Taste is salt, sour, lemony goodness with a great balance of tart, salty, sweet and citrus. Dry finish. Yum!

Pouring from a cold can into a snifter. The beer pours a bright clear gold color with bleached white head. Kind of looks like champagne, until the end of the pour is mucky and sediment laden with brown chunks.
Aroma is some twangy wheat and bit of tart lime and some husky grain. I also get a bit of sweet spiciness, coriander I think, which was agreeable.
Very carbonated and fizzy! Prickles my lips immediately. Flavor is tart and crisp with lemon and lime and a little wheat twang. I also get just a bit of sweet fruit but that is gone quickly after each sip. Finish is very dry and leaves a lingering tart across my palate. I find this enjoyable but wonder if I would want more than one of these on any given day.

Can: Poured a light yellowish color Gose with a nice pure white foamy head. Aroma of tart notes with light salty notes also discernable. Taste is a mxi between some tart and sour notes with a salty finish and limited coriander notes. Body is light with good carbonation. I had really high expectation considering all the noise this one is making but I thought it was an OK version of the style at the end of the day.
