Interesting, but ultimately distasteful. Enjoy Gose very much, but found the lacto way too prominent to the extent that taste devolvd to sour milk aftertastes. Seemed a relatively nicely made beer. Would try the brewery again,.Maybe just a bottle that wasn't the best.

I got this as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

The beer poured a cloudy yellow color with just a ½-finger of white head that dissipated in less than 30 seconds and leftr no lacing whatsoever.

The beer smelled like wheat, fruit, funk, and spice.

Wheaty flavor with a big lemon twang and hefty dose of coriander spice. Not much in the way of hop bitterness.

Light bodied with really high carbonation. Salty aftertaste.

A very different and interesting beer. Easy to drink with the low 4.3% abv.

Pretty unique taste. Light, but full of flavor. Lots of spices that dance on the tongue.

A: Poured from a bottle to a cylinder glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch and a half of fairly long-lasting, foamy head. OK lacing.

S: A typical gose smell of malt, wheat, light fruit and spices. Pretty good.

T: Tasted of coriander (a mild amount), salt, lemon, malt, and wheat. Not quite as vibrant as some gose flavors, but still sweet, light and refreshing.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth, yet lively finish. Light-bodied.

O: While it's not the greatest gose I've ever had Troublesome is definitely a worthwhile beer. Drinkable.

A: Honey gold and cloudy with lots of large and medium sized bubbles both within floating upward and clinging to the surface of the glass. 3 fingers of candy glass yellow head fades fast.

S: Corriander, sea salt, a briny breeze. A slight funky sour note. Quite Hoegaarden like.

T: Very briny and salty like sea water, and then sour, then fresh cut fruit, melons and lemon, slightly floral as well. Coriander is in there for sure as well.

M: Medium thick body, briny, medium low carbonation.

O: Well done brew. I am drinking this in the Chicago area tonight, August 12th, 2014. First saw this on Beer Temple with Chris Quinn from Chicago, when it apparently was not yet in bottles. Got this bottle in Asheville, NC and have been carrying it with me. I thought it was appropriate. Love this one. Perhaps my favourite of the Gose’s so far.
