Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

For our version, brewer Todd Perkins was in charge - in the kettle we used Vanguard hops, Salt (Hawaiian Sea Salt), ground coriander and lactic acid to finish. Todd gave a nod to a fave flick 'Ghostbusters' in naming this beer.

Ahh, a pale wheat beer with the beautiful sourness that comes from natural (I believe) souring. Well rounded in a way that reminds me of when they made Festina Peche at the brewpub. Baby got bac - teria once again! I do not this to become a year-round beer as I fear it will be soured with one-sided lactic acid. But ... a brewpub repeat? Please!!

But then, I may be wrong. Dogfish's website claims this is made with lactic acid, not bacteria. Still good.

I want Dogfish to make this a year-round brew. I love this style and there aren't enough people doing it--and wow, this was a great interpretation of the style.

Hazy gold with beautiful lacing; smelled like a pilsner, I wasn't actually sure it was a Gose from the smell alone.

Taste was a wheat ale, but with this great sourness, and the coriander and salt added a nice mineral character. The mouthfeel reminds me of Festina Peche, but the wheat character means that the sourness is not overwhelming like it is with Berliner Weisse styles. Perfect for a summer day, perfect for everything. I drank as much as I could while still in Rehoboth.

Poured from tap into a curved pint at Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, DE.

Pours a beautiful light gold in color, hazy with a billowing white head. Loads of lacing left on the glass. Lemon zest and a pilsner like skunkiness dominates the nose, a bit of spiciness and some wheat are very loud in the taste, light and refreshing to say the least. I also get a nice amount of tart/sour properties with bits of coriander and some sage. Mouthfeel is light and very similar to Festina Peche's crispness and feel on the tongue. Overall a very nice Gose brew that is very drinkable and perfect for a warm summer day in Rehoboth.

a: opaque hazed yellow with a bone white head, nice retention and lacing

s: lemony tones dominate with a clean wheaty body, balanced sour with some grassy hops, not much coriander here or on the palate - I didn't pick it out at all while drinking

m: carbonation full but smooth, combines with the light body for a nice mouthfeel

t: super clean wheat malt body with balanced lemony sour notes, hops light, the salt adds only a slight mineral taste to the finish, pretty flavorful for such a simple set of characteristics

d: exceptionally easy, and an interesting style that I'm happy to have tried, brings to mind the berliner weisse style

pint at the Rehoboth pub

Tried this on tap at the Dogfish Head Pub in Rehoboth, DE,

The color was a slightly cloudy pale golden. The smell was like a pilsner but without the Saaz hop and a touch of coriander. The initial flavor is of tartness followed by the coriander. At this point a salty flavor takes over. The acidic tartness lingers. This is a very interesting beer, but due to the salt has a limited drinkability. Definitely worth trying if you're in the area.
