3.6/5 rDev -9.1%
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.

4.33/5 rDev +9.3%
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.

Thanks to drabmuh for bringing this bottle to compare with the Cascade Winter Gose. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
The pour yields a medium golden brew with a nice fizzy white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a good dosing of coriander and citrus with a bit of salt in the background. The flavor adds quite a bit of salt, though doesn't take it over the top. Nice coriander and spice plus some orange peel. Light, crisp body with a faint acidity. Nicely done.
