Poured from 750mL bottle into my Granville Island sculpted pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light touch of haze and a light effervescence. Head poured a finger of fizzy white foam that dissipated almost immediately. 'Sok.

Smell: light sourness with a light element of wheatiness and coriander. It's not bad, but the volume could maybe be turned up a little on the wheat element.

Taste: sour up front, followed by a slightly plasticy floral element. Saltiness is quite low, but still noticeable. There is a little bit of yeasty banana character at the back, but it doesn't really balance things out. The floral element is what is a bit weird to me, otherwise a pretty solid gose.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a pretty good carbonation and a surprising creaminess considering its low effervescence and head retention.

Overall: pretty drinkable, but the weird plasticy thing in the flavor still bothers me. Worth it if you are interested in goses, otherwise probably a skip.

Big thanks to eyebereej for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into an unmarked tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazy, orangish dark gold, with a big white head that fades quickly and a good amount of lively visible carbonation. 3.5/5

S: Pilsner and wheat malts, lemony citric acid and some farmhouse yeast pepperiness. 14/20

T: Light cracker malts, wheat graininess, farmhouse yeast, some black pepper, restrained salt for style, light lactic tartness and lemony citrus. It finishes dry - very attenuated - with some light tartness and salinity. 35/45

M: Light body with great lively carbonation - almost soda-like in character. No alcohol presence to speak of. 9/10

O: Not bad, but this is the first Almanac beer I've been a bit disappointed with. I found this to have a lot of saison character rather than the stated gose. Not much lactic tartness or funky character, and the salinity should be higher with the style. Certainly not objectionable, but with the renaissance this style is experiencing there are several superior examples available. 14.5/20

Estimated final score: 3.68
Calculated final score: 76/100
Old BA score: 3.80
