Source/Serving: 11.2 oz bottle
S: Coriander/moss yogurt with a touch of funky stomach acid. Past-its-prime lemon and orange, lightly salted. Soured bread. Intensity of the sour is moderate and clean.
T: Straightforward coriander hits first along with smooth, moderate sourness and significant breadiness. You don't notice the saltiness at first, but after a few sips a definite salty note comes through adding freshness and roundness. The middle dries out a bit with more salt and a light lemon tang accentuated by a mild bite from the carbonation. Hints at funky noble rot, but its light. The sour character is a nice smooth lactic sour that is moderately intense. Finish lingers with the salt really coming through alongside lemon acidity and a mouthcoating of fresh herbs.
Note: Nice and refreshing and I like that you can taste the malt. The coriander isn't my style, but it does add character. Its hard to score this since this is the only Gose I've come across.

$ 3.49/11.2oz bottle at Heinen’s in Breckville, OH
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into Sam Adams lager glass
Aroma very faint lemon
Head small (2 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2mm ring
Body medium yellow, cloudy, some lumps
Flavor definitely salty, hint of lemon; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation
A very good example of the style – the murky appearance and lumps are somewhat off-putting, but the salty refreshingness is well worth it. Close your eyes.
