4.8/5  rDev +26.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Straw/deep citrine body with a crisp snow/ivory head.

Aroma: Very 'bready' with undercurrents of grain and light spice.

Taste: Spice, grass, anise, coriander, and lemon zest - all carried-through by a bready backbone.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean with a fair amount of carbonation; feels a bit flat as it goes down, however.

Overall: My first beer in the 'Gose' style, 'Troublesome' did not disappoint; a friend of mine assured me it was one of the best - particularly for summer. With that said, find some shade and try this - it will surely not disappoint.

I'll update this review once I've had more, these are my initial impressions...

Appearance: slightly cloudy, good head retention. Light straw color.

Smell: Hints of the sour/tartness to come in the taste.

Taste: Just the right mix of tartness and salt. When you're unfamiliar with the style, those words can sound odd, but it really works and this is a great example of the style.

Mouthfeel: Just right. Not to fizzy, very true to style.

Overall: Very impressed with this beer. Very true to style, just the right amount of tart and saltiness. A very refreshing beer on a hot summer day to be sure. Can't wait to have more.
