I tried this on tap at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. $5 for a 10oz brandy snifter.
The beer poured a cloudy pale gold color with only a ½-finger of white head on top. Head retention was good, but it only left minimal spotty lacing.
The beer smelled yeasty and a bit sour.
Mildly tart and yeasty flavor with a good dose of wheat malt which adds a twang to it. Ground coriander gives it some spiciness, but the expected salty taste wasn't really there and hop bitterness was also non existent.
Very light, close to watery mouthfeel , with low to moderate carbonation.
This was my first gose, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but if this is what they are supposed to taste like, all I can say is that it's very interesting and very different from any other style of beer I've tried, but it won't be a favorite style of mine.

$ 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.

3.08/5 rDev -21%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3
11.2 oz bottle with no freshness date poured into a wine glass. 4.6% ABV
Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color with 1 finger of a white head that dissipates to a thin wispy coating and collar.
Smell: Bread, wheat, apple and a weird grainy funkiness (not a good funkiness)
Taste: Lightly sweet upfront with an extremely mild sourness. Flavors are lemon, wheat and mild spice. Slight saltiness comes through in the finish and aftertaste. Flavors are really weak.
Mouthfeel: LIght medium bodied and crisp with medium carbonation. No alcohol detectable.
Overall: Pretty disappointed in this one. An odd aroma and weak flavor profile make this one I won't likely revisit.. Maybe this was a bad/old bottle, but without knowing for sure, I'd have to recommend avoiding this one.
