look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a decent fizzy creamy like almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice lacing, mostly clear golden pilsner color.

Nose brings some tart slightly soured malt, creamy doughy malt and fresh bread dough, lemon zest, little coriander, but pretty light.

Taste brings more wheat, creamy wheat with a little toasty but raw bread dough, doughy that even brings the mild tartness of raw dough, and little toasty biscuit note. Then tart lemony flavors, little zest, mild coriander and spice notes. Finish is mildly sweet but drier, little creamy and more raw dough, tart notes, and coriander lingering.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, light carbonation, and a little tart sticky feel.

Overall not bad, nothing too special, mild coriander which comes through nicely, nice wheat and plenty of raw dough wheat with even the tartness of raw dough and lemony notes, enjoyable for a summer style beer, or a super hot summer like day in fall as in today.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is light golden with small head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of sourdough bread, funky malt, light spice, particularly coriander, wheat. There's an odd, rubbery scent in there as well, but I can't decide how distracting it is...Sour, earthy flavor. Tart lemon-like qualities. An interesting take on a gose. Unusual and worth a try.

Poured a light gold body with some minor head and lace patches.
Aroma is a mix of wheat notes and citric along with some sour and tart notes and hints of spice.
Light and crisp body, sharp, there's a floral spicy edge to the beer and the wheat gives it a fuller body and some sweetness that I wasn't expecting.
Good balance as the above characteristics are plentiful but the main profile is a citric sourness/tartness that makes this a "sour beer".
Finishes dry and sour, almost a puckering tartness at times, but is a unique beer that has a little bit of everything and is pretty good.
