Tart, Lemony, Salty, Aggressive
Cloudy, with a dirty peach hue and a short-lived lace. Choc Beer’s Gose is soft on the nose and a bit musty, yeasty, spicy, zesty and briney. Light and crisp with a sharp, acidic, lactic and puckering opening, followed by a massive lemony smack on the palate. The finish is bone dry with wheat tannins and a salty linger. It's basically like biting down on a salted lemon. The base flavors are there, and I liked it overall, but the overly-aggressive acidity overpowers the coriander and the other nuances found in this style.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #104 (September 2015).

Into a snifter. Cloudy orange color with a finger of head that is quickly gone.
It smells like a German Riesling wine. The coriander comes through and a little banana.
Interesting taste. Light flavor upfront, bubbly, salty and sour lemon (lots). Very sour. It kinda grows on you or at least on me.
Higher carbonation and lighter body. A little sticky texture.
They created a beer that was almost lost... maybe there was a reason for it not being popular. Absolutely worth finding and trying though.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours an effervescent & semi-hazed apricot with a finger of fast falling cream colored head.Not much head retention or lacing

S: Porridge, slight phenolic dirtyness, some hints of iron

T: Salty & lemony notes up front with a light hint of orange peel up front, along with peppery notes as well. Lemony tartness & saltyness as this warms, along with some faint dirty/earthy notes. Finishes salty with lemony tartness, some sour apple, plus a touch of dryness& & just a bit of pineapple

MF: Effervescent, light bodied, nicely balanced

Super drinkability, couldn't stay on it all day, but man this really slakes the thirst. This is a pretty daring take on the style works for me, I'm very impressed by this one!

Poured a cloudy dark yellow with a light creamy tan head.

The smell is minerally and spicy with a light bit of wheat.

Very tart and sour up front with a lightly sweet bit of wheat and spice, there is just a hint of the salt in the finish. Very similiar in flavor to a good Berliner Weiss.

The mouthfeel has that light sour acidity along with a nice clean creamy lingering quality.

Very drinkable, would be very thirst quenching on a hot summer day. A fun strange style.

Poured into a Duvel tulip

A - Pours a hazy, medium orange color with 2 fingers of white head that dissipates quickly. Little lacing is left as a constant stream of bubbles rises to the surface.

S - Funky aromas of tart fruit hit the nose right away with floral notes intermixed. Next is aged cheese and pale malt.

T - Puckering tart apples and pears are apparent right away with a hint of cherries intermingled. This gives way to aged brie before a light malty finish that lingers long after the sip. There is a touch of saltiness in the finish as well.

M - This is a bright, effervescent beer that drinks dry throughout the flavor profile, especially in the finish.

O - This is a pretty unique beer unlike any I have tasted. The beginning is pretty standard for a farmhouse ale but the salty flavor is a bit of a surprise. The maltiness in the finish is more indicative of a pilsner. This is definitely an interesting brew that you should try if you get the chance.

Pours a hazy, muddy, orange color. White head, doesn't stick for long.

Smell is lightly tart and acidic, but there's a rich sort of malt profile that shines through more than anything. Backing citrus.

Tart tasting. Makes my cheeks pucker a bit. I wouldn't call it sour, but just really tart. There's a hints of bread and citrus, but unlike the aroma, the tart qualities mostly overpower. Not getting any saltiness, which is what I enjoyed with the first Gose I had, along with it's mere faint tart notes. Finish is bone dry though, so the salt may be playing a part...

Little bit slick, but lighter in body, low carbonation.

Not my most favorite style, but I can appreciate it for what it is.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow/golden color with a layer of white head that leaves a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Tart with a strong spice presence. Sweet citrus.

Taste: Quite tart, more than I expected. Some citrus notes along with the spices. Lots of coriander. Crisp malt and I think I'm picking up some salt in the background.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: A bit more tart that I expected. The spice flavor was intense, but good. I would consider having another.

Cloudy amber with a small white colored head.

Smells mildly sour with lemon, coriander and toasted grain scent. Bit funky with faint horse blanket scent.

Starts out sour. Defiantly salty. Normally I don't like sour beers but this is more Margarita rim salt than spoiled bottle of beer. Think salty Berliner Weisse when you taste it.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a beer style few have ever tried.
