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.

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.

Bottle from midway in tulsa. Reviewed by style. I wish more reviewed by style.
Pours a nice apricot color with about a finger of head. Nice lacing which sems like a tatoo on the side of the glass.
Nose is an interesting mustard with apricot nose. Clearly sour...
Taste is damn spot on. Slight salt, which balances the tart sour. This is the best gose I have had. Not too much going on I. The way of complexity... but man, this is amazing spot on. Congrats choc.... best beer to style you have made. Absolutely amazing.

Pours a darker orange than most of the goses. Not much head. Looks pretty so so compared to the rest. Smells spicy and tart. There is almost some chili pepper. The taste is sweet and very tart. Coriander is strong. Lot of lemon zest. Under carbonated compared to the rest. Overall my least favourite other than the salt of the earth which suuuucked

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

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.

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.

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.

Uncorks with a promising pop and pours murky brown with golden hues threaded throughout, and an off-white head that settles slowly.

Aroma is of fresh baked beer bread, a panoply of light fruits, coriander and lemon. Wow. Salty as fuck to the tongue. Going to let that sink in a bit before I go back for another try. Ok, here goes. The second round reveals some more light fruits and malt. A lemony tartness moves in all aggressive like toward the end, slaps me around a little and makes we wonder why I entered the ring.

Light to medium bodied and dry, which is according to style.

Since this is the first Gose I've tried, I really don't have anything to compare it to, but it seems to be in line with the style guide. I've decided not to throw the towel in on this beer, but I think the bottling in a magnum demands sharing with friends. While this one kicked my butt a bit, I will seek out a few more for comparisons sake.

Dirty apricot with a two finger disc of white head that comes just to the lip of the tulip. Earthy wheat sets a mild backdrop for the lemon juice and peel mixed with ruddy seawater flavor profile. Distinct, yet multidimensional and well-integrated lactic tartness drives the beer and further accents the citrus from the coriander. Intriguing but so refreshing and easy to gulp that it's hard to make the bottle last long enough to contemplate it. The rustic graininess comes out further once it warms. Choc has done a nice job with this one and I'll be picking up one or two more bottles while it's still around.

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.

A- A great apricot color and a bit cloudy. Nice creamy one finger head. No lacing.

S- wheaty, yeasty, dirty funk, some citrus notes and darker spices. Lots of barn dirt and hay.

T- apples and lemons, dried wood, apricot skins and plums, and salt! A little earthy mustiness and lots of coriander. This is like a sweet and sour drink with a salt rim. Absolutely outstanding and well balanced.

M- Tart, medium body, light carbonation, and a nice dry finish that makes you want more.

O- I've never tried any other Gose's to compare this to, but this has a very lasting impressing. Great job, Choc!

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!

4oz pour->Melbourne Bros. Stemmed Tulip

A ~ Pours a deep Peach/Pumpkin that is ever so cloudy. 1/2 inch of head that fizzles away into very faint remnants of off white. Tiny bubbles.

S ~ Spicy Coriander & Pepper notes. Bit of apple pie. Soft wheat backbone with pils malt lending notes of grain & sliced pale fruit.

T ~ Crabapples, Raspberries, Plum skin, Sour Grapes, Coriander, Lemons, Red Apples in Vinegar...Lactic acid is present at the start then shifts into the fantastic blend of wheat & German malts that really compliments the initial flavors.
Finish has cereal grains, dried grass, yellow apple & coarse salt, which comes out a bit more throughout.

M ~ TART from the start with a very very very dry finish.
Medium bodied with a delightfully malty backbone that really makes the fruity/sour flavors sing. Carbonation is delicate. This is a very balanced beer for what it accomplishes. Would be a great "palette-scrubber" at a tasting.

D ~ This is my first Gose, but it will not be my last. A fantastic offering from Choc. This really is one of the most impressive 'Signature' offerings. Cannot wait to see more. Seek out!

A - Pours a cloudy burnt-orange with 1 finger of white head that settles into a milky cap.

S - Dry and soapy, earthy tartness, spicy wheat, reminds me of a Christmas/Autumn spice candle

T - Tart and dry up front. The lactic acid wakes up the whole palate instantly. Dried spice, earthy wood, tangy wheat, dried granny smith apple skins, muted peach and apricot, saline on the back and sides of the tongue. Tart turns to sour toward the middle and finishes sour and very dry.

M - Light bodied, soft carbonation, dry.

A good balance of spice, tart, sour, and saltiness. The earthy wheat backs everything up. Very interesting. Will definitely be picking more bottles of this
