August 1, 2014

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a completely unpretentious tulip.

This is my first gose.

A – Golden color, bordering on the turn to amber. It poured with about a centimeter of head which dissipated quickly. Very nice to look at, I would think I was about to drink a pale ale if I didn’t know better. Strong orange tint if you hold it up in front of a bright lamp.

S – Light but very much evident hints of sourness on the nose. Some peppery notes, and some mild citrus fruit, possible even tangerine or orange. I get a little bit of honey or rich sweetness, but hard to find and grasp it. At the end of the sniff I get lemon, possibly lime.

T – Very mild sourness from the lactobacillus, reminds me of punch at a party (unspiked), or flavored ginger ale, or limeade (without the sugary sweetness). I don’t get any of the salt.

M – Seems like very mild carbonation while it’s in my mouth, but on the finish there are a lot of bubbles. Very light, breezy, smooth off the tongue, with a nice citrus, faintly floral aftertaste. This is the only time I get the salt, and it’s actually a couple minutes after I last sipped.

O – I can tell that this is a very complex beer, and there are a lot of different things that seem to stand out. It’s like drinking a very light wheat beer, but that sour edge makes it a really great variation. I actually expected more salt flavor, but am glad it wasn’t there. Because of the low alcohol content, this is something I could sit and drink a LOT of.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale yellow body. Small white head. Very thin collar.

Smell - A bit of lemony citrus. Wheat. Light breadiness and spice.

Taste - Wheat. The faintest of acidity, but not even tangy. Spicy and bready in the middle. Light salty finish.

Mouthfeel - Light. Not sour at all. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - It's ok, but it just tastes like a salty wheat beer.

Bright orange color, medium white head. Aroma is sweet, peppery, spicy, flowery, and generally pleasant. Very likable thus far.... Taste is crisply dry, floral and spice, nice white bread malty, and well balanced. Just a touch of salt makes things interesting. No overwhelming flavors and nicely light. Perfect for Spring and very easy to drink.
