Growler pour at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and Fruity Pebbles aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour fruity and salty flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is refreshing, tasty, and easy to drink.

Appearance: Arrives with a pale lemony color with an inch of foam on top; some dots of lacing

Smell: Bready, with sour lemon, spice and a hint of salt

Taste: Bready, up front, with developing sour lemon tones; in the middle arrive the spice and salt, with the finish showing some build of the salty flavor

Mouthfeel: Light body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: This brewery has built a reputation on its Gose and it is well-deserved

From 12/12/13 notes. Big thanks to Nugganooch for sharing a growler of this fresh from Cali. Always interested in trying a new Gose and never heard of this brewery. 32 oz. growler poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a clear lightly yellow color with one inch of bright white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of lightly sour citrus hops, lemon zest, floral hops, bread, sour biscuit, earthy malts, spices, pepper, and light salt. Salt isn't too evident; nose is good, reminds me almost of a very light berliner.

t - Tastes salt, citrus, lemon, earthy notes, spice, floral notes, bread, and some sour dough. Salt comes through more here in the backend than it did in the nose, and there is a nice lemon tartness. Very good taste, better than the nose.

m - Light body and low to moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing, and easy to drink. You could take down a couple glasses of this if you wanted to.

o - Overall I liked this gose a lot; I'd put it slight after the Westbrook and Cascade goses I've had as one of the best. Light and crisp with some nice lemon tartness like a berliner, but the salt comes through in the taste for sure. Worth seeking out and would like to have it again.

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

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Rapp Brewing Company tasting room.

A: Hazy, nearly opaque straw-colored, with a one-finger white head and low visible carbonation.

S: Wheat and pilsner malts, a bit of funk, and a savory sulfurous tartness.

T: Wheat grainy, salty, lemon citrus, mild sulfur tones, some barnyard, and a nice lactic tartness in the back of the mouth. Dry and salty on the finish.

M: Light body, low alcohol presence, and good carbonation sensation.

O: This might be the only (first) example of the style I've had, but I find it quite enjoyable. Nothing I'd always have in the fridge, but easy to drink, refreshing, and definitely an interesting style.

12/12/13 – Served in a Duvel tulip glass

A: Very light golden straw color with a touch of wheat malt haziness. Thin layer of effervescent white froth across the top. Light and lively with a quick dissipation rate and minimal swaths of lacing on the glass.

S: Smells of sour wheat grains with lemon rinds mostly. Has a distinct lactic tartness to it. Not incredibly pungent or funky in anyway. Some light buttery notes in there. Nicely tart and lemony.

T: Tart lemon peel with white pepper and a grainy sourdough wheat bread. A distinct touch of lacto. Almost cheese like at times. A dash of saltiness to a crisp tart finish. Evident salt but not overbearing. Relatively small amount of bitterness and the alcohol is traceless. Nicely tart and not incredibly sour. Refreshingly lemony. There is definitely some nice balance to this beer.

M: Pretty light in body and a touch watery at times. Nice tart pucker on the palate. A bit dry and crisp at that salty finish.

D: First Gose for me and this one is not bad at all. Without any comparison this seems to be pretty well done to style. Would make for a great beach beer. Glad to have tried. I don’t think Gose will be a fav of mine but I look forward to trying more.

NYE growler share courtesy of stevencon. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow. Thin white head and same collar. Aroma is lemony and very light dry barn-like funk. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with a slight briney-ness to it. Nice light body and mediumly carbonated.

From a chilled 32 ounce growler poured into a large tulip. Thanks to Paul for the hookup.

A – Pours hazy pale golden with about a half inch of bright white head that dissipated pretty quickly. Some spotty lacing remained after each swirl.

S – Tart lemon, grainy wheat, pretzel.

T – Lemony and tart. Not overpoweringly tart, but tart enough to make my sour-hating wife recoil. There is some wheat sweetness in the finish, and the salt becomes apparent as it warms a bit.

M –Quite light, but refreshingly so. The salt helps it stick to the palate a bit, but to say it coated the palate would be an overstatement. Moderate carbonation, even after a week in the well-sealed growler (and a trip to Boston from Florida).

O – I haven’t had a lot of Gose with which to compare it, but I really like this. Easy drinking, refreshing, and tasty. Plus, the 4% ABV means I can finish the growler without hurting myself.
