Tart lemony nose with light grains. Pours hazy gold under a big white persistent finely bubble foam collar. This highly effervescent beer has a tart, lemony, salty refreshing grainy palate. It starts with a hint of fruity sweetness but the lemony tartness soon rules. There is a faint bitterness on the finish. In the beginning the beer is like drinking a cloud but on the finish a big carbonic burst triggers the pain receptors on your tongue and wipes the palate clean. Crisp and refreshing.

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.

Served in a seidel.

A- abundant pale white fluffy head and lace. Cloudy gold liquid with blonde hues and heavy carbonation. 4.5

S- Floral, estery, yeasty. Wheat aroma figures prominently. Faint salt and some sweet fruit. 4

T- Wheaty, tart fruit, grassy, herbal. Faint lemon and salt. 3.5

M- Tart, light to medium body, more bitterness than I want from a gose. Crisp finish is nice. 3.5

This could use more salt and less bitterness. Otherwise, not bad.

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.
