Big thanks to Cyclone8 for sending this bottle down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.
A: Pours a medium amber (much darker than expected), and hazy. Forms a finger's worth of white head with average visible carbonation.
S: Fleshy fruit (apple and pear), tart, light cracker malts and wheat with minimal graininess.
T: Tart and acidic, again with crisp pears and apples, and dry. Restrained funky barnyard, wheat malts, noticeable saltiness near the end, but not overdone. Very dry on the finish with a light tartness.
M: A light body in general, but heavier than many examples of style. Good carbonation sensation and essentially no alcohol presence to speak of.
O: I thought this was pretty tasty. A bit heavier on the malt bill and lighter on the salinity (despite its name) for style, but has a nice tart and funk balance. Very glad to have gotten to try this one.

From 05/19/13 notes. Missed the bottle #; 750ml bottle like their other ones.
a - Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of citrus, lemon, fruity malts, apples, and wheat. Citrus up front, fruits throughout the nose. Very nice, though not sour at all.
t - Tastes of citrus, lemons, sour fruits, salt, wheat, sour white wine, apples, bready malts, grapefruit, and some fruity malts. A step up from the nose as there was a good amount of sour fruits and citrus here that the nose was lacking.
m - Light to medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink; could have drank the whole bottle.
o - Overall a really nice gose; one of the better ones I've had in a while. Had some nice sour citrus and white wine in the taste, and the salt is there but not heavy. Worth checking out, would certainly have it again.

Thanks Steasy66! Bottle 55/2000.
Appearance. Pours a nice orange-gold with a little haze and a finger of off white head that quickly fades to a collar.
Smell. Grainy light malts and lactic sourness. Also a little lemon, tart apple and some briny saltiness, the first time I've every actually picked up the salt smell in a gose I think.
Taste. Sour lemon, a little caramel and wheaty malt. There's a light saltiness that's really nice with the sour.
Mouthfeel. Medium-light body with medium low, fairly fine carbonation. There's also a slight unique drying feeling in the finish that I can only assume comes form the salt.
Overall. A nice gose that's hitting the spot after a morning of hard work. Couldn't ask for a better fluid replenishment! Thanks again Ryan.

Body is a golden amber shade with a brief white head. Nice clarity on the first pour, with increased cloudiness on subsequent pours. Aroma has a buttery, lactic character, along with some green apple and citrus. Flavor pops with fruityness - tart green apple and something I associate with white wine. Mouthfeel is crisp with lively carbonation that compliments the bright, sharp flavors. Although there’s some sweetness, it has a dry finish, with a moderate amount of lingering spice (presumably from the coriander).
Being unfamiliar with Gose, it’s tough to rate this to style. But it is clearly a well-made beer as well as one that I thoroughly enjoyed and thus, graded on those merits. Will look for this if/when it is brewed again.
