3.78/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

This had a cloudy appearance with an apricot hue. The head was short lived with a fizzy body.

The aromas are faint but easily perceived. Wheat is strong with a lemon or lemongrass scent.

The taste is wheat-centric as the actual grain shines through. The coriander is subtle but instead of the typical orange this moves more lemony. The lemon is sweet and citrusy with no real bitterness but more sugary.

The feel is so light and sessionable that it nearly disappears before you notice its gone.

This is akin to a Blue Moon but instead of moving to the Orange it's lemon flavors make it more drinkable. Top it off with a stronger wheat presence this stands as a really good session beer.

4.06/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Cloudy straw yellow color. Good active carbonation while drinking. Half a finger of head on the pour and stuck around while drinking.

Smell: Sweet creamy malt mixes well with some lightly funky sour tones. Grassy airy hop tones on the body with just a touch of wheat and oats. Orange peel and coriander are noticeable on the body. That sweet dairy tones linger throughout and are truly unique.

Taste: Lush, creamy front of sweet wheat and oats hit the palate first. Buttery yeast body warms up on the body and some lightly tart, effectively funky, salty, sourness adds an extra punch. Spiced tones with accents of coriander round out the taste.

Mouthfeel: Wonderful balance of tartness, dry oats, and sweet lactose. Carbonation adds to the creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: My first Gose style beer but there is no doubt this is an excellently crafted brew. Multiple layers and interesting complexity keep the drinker on their toes. Hopefully I can get my hands on more stuff from Off Color.

12oz bottle.

Pours cloudy yellow with a partial skim coat on the surface for the duration with some stringy lacing of white.

Aromatics lead off with an over-ripe lemon in a wet sock. A hint of ocean breeze and dusty boards follow through.

Light bodied with a slick, almost syrupy mouthfeel.

Lemon-drops, coriander, and spritzy citrus oil starts the palate. A hint of sea water and wet hay in the end.

Finishes with an interplay of slightly sweet and tart with lingering lemon and a brackish hint.

Interesting beer, a nice take on a Gose.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Troublesome in that wheat beers want to be "Wheat", and that sour beers want to be "Sour", and that spiced beers want to be "Spiced". But it doesn't come so easily as this revisit to a historic style of beer might seem avant garde to the uninitiated imbiber, but to those in the know of Gose understands its spicy, wheaty and sour ways.

With the delivery of the pour, its hazy canary-yellow glows with supple diffusion as light captures hues of gold and straw. Shedding a creamy sheet of foam, the ale trails with dissected necklaces of lace.

Its tangy, citrusy and bready aromas come with notions of sea brine, cork-like must and sweat. Enticing with an earthen scent of weathered woods, perhaps of attic and basement- a scent of dried lime, lemon and orange peels all float above a taste of sugar and shortcake to suggest the scent of "warheads" candy.

Its taste is much more firmly rooted in ale character as its sweetness is of light bread, sugar cookie and confectioners sweetness. But that lavish party is cut short as the middle opens with citursy tartness, fading bread, and a nod to iron and plaster in its tangy finish.

Semi-dry in its mouthfeel, its early creaminess is bready, lofty and lightened. But as the bubbles dissolve on the palate, a dry tartness takes hold- leading to slight warmth, acidic twang and soft powdery astringency.

Off Color's revival of Gose is a discovery of taste and the mind and the palate is transported to a time that's perhaps unimaginable. Yet this beer exists in all its wheaty, sour and minerally demeanor!

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip.
4.3% ABV, 13°P, 10 IBUs

A - The hazy pale straw yellow beer struggles to retain it's fluffy white head beyond the halo of loose bubbles it disintegrates but it comes as no surprise with lactobacillus, a souring agent, at the helm.

S - The "secret ingredient", coriander, along with salty notes, gives the nose a nice spicy bite but doesn't draw as much attention as it's other "secret" friend, Lactobacillus; the reason for the slightly funky and deliciously tart aroma. Soft wheat and simple pale malt comprise a gentle base for the unique funk to spring off of.

T - Almost like a slightly soured witbier, Troublesome has a prolific, tasty wheat profile with delicate coriander spice, which imparts a touch of lemony citrus, and slight saltiness on the finish.

M - Carbonation dances on the tongue but this wheat beer is incredibly smooth with delicate tartness that's overcome by gentle lingering saltiness and coriander spice for a refreshing, thirst-quenching finish.

O - If it weren't for the tart and acidic addition of lactobacillus, Troublesome would be very witbier-esque as it's bountiful with soft wheat and coriander spice but this German-style Gose makes for an incredibly easy drinking, crisp and refreshing brew!

Troublesome – Spiced Wheat Beer (4.3%) - Off Color Brewing (Illinois)
☆☆☆☆½

App: Solid golden pour with slight greenish hues to the extremities of the glass. Head is very thin. Weak ring of bubbles clings to the edge. No lacing at all.

Smell: Aroma is bright, grainy, and slightly sour with some strong aroma of lemon and a slight pepper like characteristic. Definitely got that sour twinge high in the nose.

Taste: Taste is bright, with a cider like acetic quality that shines through. Coriander lends a slight spiciness which compliments the semi-dry finish very nicely. Almost akin in acidity to white grape juice, with a similar puckering quality. The thing that makes this beer great is the finale. After the initial hints of white pepper, lemon and grainy sweetness, the hops bitterness appears and mingles with a lacto sourness long after the swallow. This might be the ultimate porch on a hot summer afternoon beer. Top notch.

Mouth: Medium bodied but slightly slick. Slightly dry and spicy in the aftertaste. Carbonation is overall very low, but this brew never feels oily or like it's sticking to your tongue.

Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Snifter. 4/9/14.

3.78/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with fantastic label art and a polished glossy style label as well a an unbranded silver pry-off pressure cap acquired from the very generous Duff27 in one of our many trades and served into a New Belgium tulip in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given Duff27's implicit recommendation. The brewery's website calls this a "Blended wheat beer" but does note that lactobacillus and salt are used, so I can see why some would call it a gose. I'm reviewing it as a blended wheat beer, but I'll consider its merits as a gose as well.

Served cold - at fridge temp. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. Decent creaminess and thickness. Fair frothiness. Head retention is average - about 2 minutes. Even when I tilt the glass, I can't get any lacing to stick to its sides.

Body colour is a clear translucent yellow of above average vibrance. Appears adequately carbonated. Good clarity. Clean looking; there's no visible hop sediment or yeast particles.

Overall, it's a good looking wheat beer - though it does appear filtered, which I didn't anticipate. It's far from unique or special, but there are no obvious flaws and it's looking pretty good in a general sense. I'm excited for the first sip.

Sm: Wisps of lemon zest and lemongrass. It's quite grassy, indeed. Floral hop character. Crisp full wheat. Clean barley. Munich malts. Honey. Some fruity tartness. Cream. Pilsner malts.

Looking at the label, I notice oats are listed as an ingredient; I didn't pick them up blind, but I do now that I'm prompted. I'll say the same about the coriander; it's not real prominent.

The lactobacillus bacteria is very subtle, but well integrated, lending the aroma a clean funkiness. That said, it does have a very sterile clinical feel; this isn't the complex bacterial aroma of truly spontaneously fermented beer like a traditional lambic.

This is one hell of a fresh flaked wheat aroma. Some hints of cereals and grains -dareisay even maize - complement the flaked wheat nicely.

The sweetness/tartness/bitterness balance seems near ideal. The more I smell this, the more I find it appealing. It's a soft perfumey pleasant aroma of average strength.

I don't detect any salt, alcohol, overt yeast, or any off-notes.

T: Wow. The core of the beer is a wonderful flaked wheat foundation, which is supported well by hints of cereals as well as clean barley, pilsner malts, more wheat still, and a dash of munich malts. Maybe even some faint honey? It's got a nice sweetness to it without pushing it too far. It's certainly fruity, which I think is a mixture of the hop profile and the tartness of the lactobacillus bacteria. I get lemongrass, hints of lemon zest, and some other less distinct tart fruits. In any case, the subtlety of the lactobacillus is fantastic. Just a bit of clean funkiness, but nothing too substantial.

As much as I search, I don't pick up on any salt, coriander, or even oats.

Overall, this beer has a lovely balance and almost a gestalt build. It's certainly cohesive and boasts some impressive amplitude and layering of flavours. This flavour profile offers subtlety and nuance rare in a wheat beer. It could be more intricate and complex, but that might ruin what's working - the artful simplicity and elegant balance. Above average depth and duration of flavour. Average intensity of flavour.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-flavours come through.

I really like this. I just hope no one is walking into this expecting a sour beer or a true gose.

Mf: Crisp, clean, smooth, wet, refreshing, and soft. An approachable and enjoyable texture befitting the flavour profile of this tasty wheat beer. Complements the flavour profile nicely, with a good presence and weight on the palate. Thickness and body are both aptly moderate. Hides its ABV well. The lactobacillus lends it a light smackiness which is a lovely touch.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, or harsh.

Dr: This is a surprisingly enjoyable wheat beer with plenty of flavour and ample nuance. Its artful balance and effortless drinkability will impress the most discerning of drinkers. I'd absolutely recommend it to friends, and if I could snatch it up by the 6 pack at my local shop, I imagine I'd be doing so on a regular basis. I already want another. This is almost the kind of quality wheat beer I'd expect from a brewery like New Glarus. Shockingly tasty.

I hadn't heard of Off Color brewing before, but they immediately have my attention.

Milky yellow topped with a thin head that drops to a creamy ring. Aromas of grainy wheat, lemon, lactic funkiness, spicy/leafy notes, and a little coriander. Tart, tangy flavor upfront followed by a load of fresh wheat toastiness and citrus. Coriander sweetness, a slight mineral quality, peppercorn, less lacto funk than the smell. Fairly light and crisp with only a bit of pucker lingering. An interesting, quite refreshing beer. Soft, tart, and savory...

A- pours a dull, light lemon golden color with a wispy white head that quickly fades. Slight haze.

S- Acidic lemon, coriander, clove, and wheat. Not overpowering, but fresh and spry.

T- Clean and crisp with a well timed level of tart kicking in to make things interesting. The yeast comes together really well with the coriander and fruit notes.

M- Just simply one of the most refreshing beers I've had in a while. Perfect summer beer. Clean, easy drinking, and thirst quenching. Light body.

O- One of the better wheat beers out there. It light, refreshing, and tart.

$3 for a 12 oz bottle. Pair with an herb chicken salad

12oz bottle that I believe I paid $3.99 for which if this is gose then i guess they priced it to be in line with imported gose? Either way its not cheap for a bottle of 4% wheat beer. Appearance is a hazy yellow-orange, ok head. Aroma is a slight bit of bile at first which must be from teh lacto? Maybe not. The bile subsides and then a decent wheat aroma takes over. The flavor was quite mild and easy to drink, wheat and yeast but i didn't really taste any saltiness at all.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, wheat, lemon, and coriander aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour wheat, lemon, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and fairly light and refreshing.

A-Off Color Brewing has perhaps my favorite labels in the beer game. Troublesome pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a shallow, white head.

S-Quite interesting. Coriander is the first thing I pick up on. There is some light lacto and tangy wheat. A little hint of tartness.

T-Wet wheatiness with the coriander that is a bit more buttoned up. Some lemony flavors, maybe lemon meringue. Soft lacto that lends only the slightest hint of tartness. Finishes with a soft, yet lingering saltiness.

M-Very light bodied. Salt adds a savory element to the feel. Buzzing carbonation. Drinks easily.

O-Love the labels and also love the fact that they brewed a Gose in a 12 oz. bottle at a very reasonable price. The beer itself isn't half bad as well.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with minimal head. The nose starts with a heavy cereal malt/ wheat component. Very bready with waves of lemon and notes of coriander. The predominant note is grain. The flavor starts with a light dry and tart note and quickly gives way to heavy bready wheat notes. The finish brings in some citrus notes and is quite dry. Mouthfeel is very light and highly carbonated. This is a very refreshing and easy drinking beer. It reminds me a bit of a berliner with less tartness and more malt character. Definitely not your average run of the mill 6 pack brew.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow in color with light amounts of fine active carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a very minimal (less than an eighth of a finger) fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of slightly sour wheat with some hints of lacto and coriander spice. Slightly sweet and slightly tart in aroma.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly musty wheat with some graininess and a hint of lemon citrus. There is a light to moderate amount of tartness from the lacto along with some light notes of coriander spice. Hints of sourness and just a touch of brininess.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of acidic prickliness on the tongue.

O: Overall I think this is a very enjoyable offering in a style that I personally enjoy but just do not see nearly enough. Easy to drink and sessionable.

Great pedigree at this brewery and glad they started distro in NY. The label design is wonderful, hoping the beer inside is the same.

Pour very thin white head that dissipates quickly, moderate carbonation. Biscuits smell up front with a touch of funk. Flavor is slightly tart with just enough salty to make the mouth water. Sort of a Belgian yeast flavor and clean finish. Light mouthfeel and on the dry side of things.

This is the first beer I had from Off Color, and while not my favorite in the style, it has some good things going for it. I will follow this brewery to see what is next.

The pour is a slight haze golden yellow with a one inch white head. The aroma is husky wheat grain, lemon tart citrus and sea salt. The taste is the wheat character, lemon citrus, grass coriander and a bit of salt in the finish. Tasty stuff. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation and the lightly tart clean finish. Really nice use of lacto in a lower ABV wheat beer.

beautiful packaging here, and we need more six packs of gose, regardless of their price (this one was a bit absurd). the beer is bright blonde yellow, with very little cloudiness and a short lived half inch of white airy bubbles. it smells less like coriander and more like a short lacto fermentation, tart, but not real dry. the wheat malt is also hopelessly plain, not bready, not fresh or seasonally interesting, but generic and unremarkable in aroma and in flavor. fortunately, there is enough else going on in this one. the corriander is more like seed than fresh herb, toasty and clean, not perfumy or overdone in any way. the salt adds more body and minerality than flavor, but its presence is there throughout. strange yeast in the finish, not as tart as it could be, with some sweetness left over. light alcohol makes it real easy drinking, but more robust carbonation and a dryer finish could really push it to the next level. an enjoyable and sessionable gose in a format i appreciate, but this prices me out a bit, and frankly isnt any better than most other american made goses out there.

Lactobacillus isn't normally the brewer's friend, but it shows up in this beer in spades. I'm not a sour beer noob, but I'm not a big fan either. I have to say that I bought this not expecting a sour beer. I probably should have known better when I saw wheat beer and coriander on the label. (Both traditional ingredients in Gose.) I've certainly had much better sour beer, but this wasn't awful. Any brewer willing to play with lacto is rather courageous and for that they should be commended. Also, not the beer to have after eating chili.
