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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy straw color capped by an inch of foam that quickly dissipates, leaving a few dots behind

Smell: Lemon and sea water

Taste: Lemon and sea water flavors up front, with the tartness building through the middle; after the swallow, the salt lifts a notch along with more tartness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; very puckery

Overall: I have had a few other Goses but have not had enough experience with the style to comment on whether the extreme sourness of this beer is on style or just the brewer's creativity in action; this tasted like a somewhat salty Berliner Weiss to me

Thanks, BlueOkie, for the opportunity

This poured out as a hazy golden color with with a fizzy white head that faded quickly. There is not lacing or retention I this red. Lively bubbles rising to the top of the beer. The second pour give a good amount of sediment making this a milky looking tan color. The smell is slightly tart with some wheat on the nose. The taste is tart with some lemon citrus, the salty wheat comes in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer has a big carbonation to it. Overall this is a pretty solid brew. Really enjoyable.

Served in a Lexington Bourbon Barrel Ale snifter.

Big thanks to ThirstyHerf for this bottle!

That's right, a new gose. And from the Sooner State, no less! Right on. It pours a cloudy pale golden straw (pretty much yellow) topped by a finger of white foam. The nose seemed more like that of a white wine than a beer: Mike and I agreed that a spicy chardonnay or moscato fit the bill pretty nicely. Basically it's all just spicy white grapes, with a hint of coriander, balsa, and tart lemon zest cowering in the distance. The taste returns to the usual gose territory, with notes of tart lemon, light tart orange zest, coriander, cracked wheat, light cardamom, and a twist of tart grapefruit. Not very much of a salty character here, which I've gotten in the other goses I've sampled. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a dry, almost sticky finish. Overall, a highly enjoyable brew, not too sour, but something easily drinkable in large amounts (if so desired). Good times.

someone told me that this recently medaled at the world beer cup or something, but i have yet to confirm that. its a heck of a nice goes no matter whether it won something or not, it should have. honey colored, not as pale as others, and with some clarity too until the bottom of the bottle. smallish white head fades fast, but there is plenty of bubbles in the beer. nose is nice and tart, lactic acidity is mid range, nothing caustic, but nice and zippy too. coriander is on the lighter side in both smell and taste, which is great, sometimes these get too foody and herbal, more mealish than beerish. this one stays light despite a richer color, and a little more body than the style average in my experience. salt is there, actually having a strange and paradoxical effect of making my mouth water after the swallow, and with the nice refreshing carbonation this is a wonderful beer for a warm afternoon. wheat malt is fresh and crockery. light citrus with the sourness, lemon rind or grapefruit flesh or something like that, when ice cold its perfect, but when it warms up and the pour gets dreggy, its not as flattering. definitely worth seeking out.

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!

Thanks to Jason for sharing this beer. Served in a wine glass while eating some Thai food.

A - A finger of white foam settles to a thin cap and thicker collar, leaving behind minimal lacing. Murky peach body.

S - Tons of coriander, and plenty of salt. There's something that also reminds me of horseradish or mustard, which was somewhat unexpected. Mild lactic sourness, some sharp wheat, and a touch of vanilla.

T - The taste is heavy with sea salt, and thankfully the wasabi note is going. Some light coriander, wheat, and minimal lactic sourness. Somewhat mild, with a fairly clean aftertaste.

M - Medium-light body, very dry and slightly gritty, no alcohol, and a clean, crisp finish.

D - I can't stand wasabi or horseradish, so the aroma really didn't work for me. However, the rest of the beer was quite enjoyable. It's very salty and spicy compared to other goses I've had, which makes it a bit of struggle to drink in large quantities.

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.

Beer is mostly clear at the top of the bottle with a thin white head with low retention, no real lacing, moderate carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is mildly salty, like sea water, with a mild floral sense to it, no real lactic acid detected.

Beer is light in body and very salty, nice overall. Very enjoyable. Heavily carbonated on the palate, the finish is nice too, not dry. The lacto character in this beer is subdued but it is nice. I enjoyed it, a nicer gose than most I've had. I would have it again. More lactic creaminess would make this beer better.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Poured a banana colored yellowish, hazy with a good frothy white cap, bubbles and some moderate lacing

S: Wheat, citrus salty with a lactic burn on the nostrils with some chlorine in the nose

T: Moderate salt with light citrus and wheat coupled with a lactic pucker factor but here seems t be a chlorine like taste to this, same as I detected on the nose

M: Light body, well carbonated

O: A pretty average Gose but not as refreshing as some Gose's I have had but I found it better than Uprights Gose. The chlorine element is the major defect but it did not kill the beer.

Shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.

The beer is transparent and light orange colored, with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers white grape juice, grape skins, white wine, spice. The flavor resembles ocean water. Salty and earthy. Lingering sea salt in the finish. A bit of a puckering sensation in the cheeks. Very bold flavor. Definitely recognizable as a gose right off the bat. A very good example of the style, I would definitely have this again.
