large shared bottle.
Cloudy pale golden color.
Moderately funky aroma with a less funky but quite tart flavor and relatively complex flavor.
O: a challenging gose.

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.

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.
