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%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.

22oz bottle poured into weizen glass.

A - Pours a dark cloudy golden amber with 2-3 fingers of off white head.

S - Smells of lemon, wheat, and a general slight sourness

T - The taste is mainly lemon and wheat, with no bitterness to speak of. The saltiness is slight and on the back end. Adding a bit of salt brings out some of the citrus flavors.

M - Thin-to-moderate body with moderate carbonation.

O - My first beer of this style, and I didn't really know what to expect. Overall I quite enjoyed it; the saltiness aspect was interesting. I think Sam Adams did a good job on this.

General - Early morning beer out here on the west coast for football. Enjoyed it out of my New Belgium glass.

Appearance - A shade between amber and gold, the SRM is around a 15 but seems to almost glow. Very nice! Head is a light white and fluffy, it diminishes pretty quickly.

Aroma - There is a light maltiness to this beer, with a hint of sourness.

Taste - It reminds me of a lightly soured sour beer. Pretty interesting actually, there is a spice in this that I can't put my finger on, it's different, that's for sure.

Mouthfeel - It feels like it coats the mouth with a film, moderate carbonation.

Overall - Well it's unique I'll say that much. Not exactly my style but it's something that's different and unique. If you're a beer geek and want to try something different this is a good one to pick up because they are normally a good price (I got mine at Costco of all places) and it's something different. I don't think that I'll be getting another one of these but that's ok.
