3.76/5 rDev -1.6%
Hefeweizen meets a sour. Not a bad combination. Poured a very light, hazy straw yellow color into my Houblon Chouffe flute. Big delicate bubbly white head. Looks like a very light colored Hefe. The coriander and lemon flavor are also very reminiscent of a hefe. But then there is a strong sour note added to the mix. This is not a heavy, vinegary sourness. More of a light, tart, funky sour taste. The flavors work well together. Not much in the way of a salty taste that I would expect from a Gose.
Mouthfeel is light, tart and refreshing.
A good warm weather sipping beer. Interesting flavors.

4 oz. pour in tap at ChurchKey in NW DC poured into their characteristic snifter glass, drank over 15 minutes
A: 3/3 - golden yellow coloration, little clarity (cannot read or see through), eggshell white frothy head settles out as a 1/4 finger glass lacing that rapidly reconstitutes on swirling, small alcohol legs
S: 8/12 - mild wild/barnyard notes, slightly enteric, wheat, no hops, no booze
T: 12/20 - overall mild flavor profile; the major features are a slight wild/barnyard funk, some some coriander and salt, no hops, no alcohol, no flaws
M: 4/5 - light body, refreshing, dry and subtle; with the appearance, this may be the highlight of the beer
O: 6/10 - meh Gose after having recently enjoyed the complexity of sour, salt and spice in Westbrook's Gose; it's good tasting but there is much intensity or complexity; won't ge returning
TOTAL - 33/50

4/5 rDev +4.7%
Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: silvery-golden hue with a touch of haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy white foam leaving a short lace on the glass. I rather like it.
Smell: a tiny bit of funk, a tiny bit of sour, a tiny bit of refreshing wheat and a little whiff of grassy springtime. Light in intensity but pleasingly complex.
Taste: grainy malt with a hint of spicing and a nice wheatiness. The funk and sour are a little bit pared back with respect to the aroma, which creates a nice dynamic experience. This is a mild but altogether pleasing beer.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a well-integrated carbonation yielding a very nice creaminess. Kudos.
Overall: this is just an all-round enjoyable brew. It's a gose that doesn't overdo it and strikes a very good balance. Love to have it again!
