So there are a few things I've managed to glean about Gose. It should be tart -- traditionally due to spontaneous fermentation, and later due to lactobacillus or addition of lactic acid. It should have a least some salt characteristic, sources vary whether that was due to the brewing water or due to additions, but there should be at the very least a hint of salinity on the tongue.

I bought this beer because I was tremendously excited that Sam Adams was going to try a Gose. Especially since my kegs of the homebrewed variety are gone, I thought it might be nice that Sam Adams was bringing this style back to the public. Basically everyone who ever tasted my Gose was a fan, and so if SA brewed a good example, it could catch on and the style might be revived commercially here in the US.

Sadly, they've missed the mark, badly. I don't pick up a hint of tartness in this beer. Not a hint. I don't think they even attempted to get any sourness in it at all. Second, I don't pick up any salt. None.

To me, this tastes like an American Wheat beer with a dash of coriander added. Nowhere near what Gose should be. (This isn't to say that it's not a well-brewed American Wheat w/ coriander, but that it's just simply not a Gose.)

I'm sad I bought three bottles of this.

Served from a 1 pint .6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap into a conical pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are low; I didn't even like the gose I tried in Leipzig.

A: Pours a 4.5 finger head of beige colour, fair cream and thickness, and good retention. Colour is a clear pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Salts, yeast, clean malts, biscuit, dough, and pasta-ey notes. Strange but weirdly welcoming. An average strength aroma.

T: Sea salt, clean malts, sour-esque notes like wild bacteria, clean barley, background pale vaguely floral hopping, lactic notes, and wheat. Strange, but fairly enjoyable. Imbalanced. The salt makes the climax weird.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with needed coarseness throughout. A bit too thick and somewhat syrupy, like the slick liquid left in a brandy glass. Viscous I guess. Carbonation is off.

Dr: Drinkable but strange. Far from Sam Adams' best beer. I don't care much for it. A strange beer in a strange style. Will I ever like gose beers?
