3.79/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden straw color with a finger width white head.Fair retention, resulting in little patches of suds across the surface. Virtually no lacing.

Smell - Slightly sour notes with grainy undertones.

taste - Wow, a punch in the mouth undetected by the nose. A direct tartness delivered with green apple, lemon and sour cherry, backed by slight grainy notes that hit by mid-taste, and all mellows into the finish, especially a nice, mellow lemony aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light to Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and drinkable, but nothing too remarkable.

Overall - I'm not too familiar with goses, but this sure seemed like a friendly welcome wagon into the style. Nice and punchy without becoming too cloyingly sour. Fair balance. Would definitely try again, and a style I'll try to explore sometime in the future.

Big yeast in this sour tasting gose. Some lemon coming through, slight spice as well. Very bready without question. Not a big sour beer, not very puckering. But a good overall sour beer. It doesn't lack taste, just not as big as I wanted the sour to be..

Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with an initial 1/4-inch thick white head which fades to the rim leaving spots of lace.

N: Wheat with some straw/hay, herbal and spicy notes.

T: Yeasty, sour wheat and corriander.

M: Light body and carbonation. Finishes slightly sour and wheaty with a faint minerality.

O: Light and refreshing. Gose well with food.
