3.38/5 rDev -2%
Last bottle in the cooler at a questionable store... Label reads batch 1, this very well may be from spring 2012.
Hazy orange body, rising carbonation visible. Compact head of white foam, floating island of skim in the center. Nice ring of lace around the edges after the first sip. Retention is ok.
Aromas of lemon soda, coriander, and oxidized malt, sadly.
Taste is lemony and vaguely tart with dull papery oxidation creeping in the aftertaste.
Some clear notes of wheat and coriander still present, as well as the odd lemon soda taste. Light bodied and still somewhat drinkable. Even though it's old there's still signs of life. Would try again if fresh.

3.33/5 rDev -3.5%
22oz bottle poured into nonic.
A: Pours a deep copper/golden color with ample fluffy, off-white head that slowly fades, but persisted until the end.
S: Very biscuity, with a hint of marmalade and honey.
T: Very malty and rather like a buttered biscuit. There was a decided lack of the trademark lactic acid sourness of the style, however. Were this not labeled as a gose, it would score higher. (And if I were being more pedantic and keeping solely to style, it would score lower.)
M: Full-bodied and quite creamy.
O: Overall, this is a rather unique and nice beer, but I don't think it's a very good example of a gose.
