3.25/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured out of a 22 oz bottle into a Weizen glass. No freshness date that I could find. First time having this particular style, so take that into account when reading my review.

Appearance - A very attractive looking beer. Pours a hazy orange with amber and gold highlights. The head isn't terribly substantial (maybe between a half and a full finger) and it dissipates to a thin film on the top of the beer fairly quickly. The foam was VERY reminiscent of soap suds in the bottom of the bottle as I swirled to make sure I captured any sediment.

Smell - Reminds me of a Hefeweizen, which I suppose makes sense, given that this is an German-style, unfiltered wheat beer at it's core. Notes of lemon zest, spice, coriander, some white pepper. I really like the smell of this beer, truth be told.

Taste - This is the first component that hasn't really appealed to me. The front of the taste again imparts the essence of Hefeweizen, but the flavor is a bit more diluted, with the finish dropping off quickly to an almost watery finish. Notes of wheat, coriander again, and right before the flavors fade, a hint of that added depth of flavor from the salt. Honestly, I was afraid the salt would have a negative impact on the flavor profile, but now I'm thinking it needs more of it to set off the roundness of the wheat base. Taste needs some refinement to make this beer go from decent to outstanding.

Mouthfeel - A bit soapy, especially after the flavors fade. Has some body to it at first, but again seems to just evaporate. Like the taste, this component needs a bit of work.

Overall, a respectable beer. Not at all a bad choice, but I wouldn't buy it again without some assurance that the imbalances of the flavor profile and mouthfeel had been corrected. At the very least, it got me eager to try other versions of the Gose style. Now the trick will be finding some.
