look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22oz toa snifter

Pours a clear pale gold with two generous fingers of foam. Retention is ridiculously good, which sucks cause there's too much. Strong carbonation coming from everywhere

Smells mostly of Belgian spice, clove, and funk. Behind that is some tart citrus and a touch of salt. No alcohol, sort of one dimensional

Taste is close with the smell. Upfront clove and spice, followed by sour citrus and sea salt. Behind that is a strong after taste of funk and wheat- A bit more complex than the aroma, but nothing too crazy

Feel is as expected, moderate sour with high salt. Alcohol isn't detectable at all, easy to sip

Overall it's not terrible, not great either. Pretty solid for a gose, worth picking up and trying if you see it

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Bomber poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clear golden yellow color with a white cap that is quick to fade. The smell of this is pretty much dominated by a fresh grainy scent. Not bad but also kinda lacking. The taste is surprisingly sweet with a fresh grain aspect before getting lemony and slightly mineral-filled. Somewhat fruity at times as it opens up. This is light bodied and moderately carbonated. It is easy drinking and fits the bill for the style.

Pours a hazy gloden yellow, small head that faded to nothing, left no lacing. Smell is citrus, wheat and a bit of funky yeasty aroma. Taste was quite tart, with a bit of bready wheat, finished with a salty, briny tone. Mouthfeel was pretty light, but fitting for the beer, pleasing on the palate. Overall, this is a great refreshing beer.
