Pours a cloudy, dirty straw yellow with a white head. The beer shows active carbonation and a fine, foamy head with plenty of lace. The aroma is funky, earthy, musty, a bit straw like. The flavor is nice with some tartness, wheat, straw, hops and lemon peel. Slightly savory but in no way salty or brine influenced. This beer is perfect for what it is, it has balance, hops, grain and a bit of that sour that beer loves seek. A lovely beer and perfection to style. Would be worth revisiting.

Pale orange, slight haziness, and a small white head that lasts for the duration as a ring of bubbles. Fragent tart smell: lemony citrus, apples, flowers, fresh wheat, and brine. Flavor is very light...slight lacto start, green apple tartness, salt, lemon, berries, and grain. Light and quite drying. Nice balance between all the elements.

Color is light gold...head is small, white, and tightly foamy. Aroma has a hefeweizen like lemony twang with floral, light spice, and fresh salty cereal grains. Taste is clean, lemony, slightly tart, lightly salted, floral, a little soapy, and white bread dough. Dry through the finish, but otherwise fluid and fluffy. Nice Gose indeed...

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small side patch of surface foam. Just about zero lacing.

S- Lactic acid aroma with some bready malt and an extra yeasty element I can't quite pin down.

T- Very mildly tart with notes of lemon, grapefruit and apple. Signs of oxidation but nothing too detrimental.

M- Slightly dry with medium-low carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Eh. It might be more true to style than Westbrook Gose, but still not as enjoyable for me.

From a bottle.

Aroma: tart and neutral (appeal)

Flavor: about average (for style) levels of sour and salt. Hints of lemon and lemongrass.

O: Not extreme in any way yet distinct.

Americans seem confused. They seem to think that the traditional salt beer of northern Germany are sour, as brewers attach themselves to full-blown berlinerweiss instead. But with is soft tangy acidity and saline fullness, they should sit back and let Dollnitzer brewers show them how it's done.

Its cloudy translucence and canary hues layer into the glass with both a bready and champagne-like layering. As a cottony-white head constructs, the nose is greeted with bread, cookie dough and candied lemon drop. With its playful tartness and sprite acidity looming, the initial taste is creamy, fully wheated and medium-sweet.

Upon the middle, the bready texture and candied sweetness pull apart, paving the way for the tartness of green apple, under-ripened berry, white grape, lemon and lime to tether through the quickly dissolving malt character. The fullness that only salt can provide follow closely behind and offer its delicate brine with no residually mineral character to interfere.

Piquant acidity wisps away quickly while ensuring a high rate of refreshment and drinkability while its soft saltiness lingers to highlight echoes of bread dough in aftertaste. Otherwise a light bodied ale, the taste of brine that clings on tightly to the mouth gives the ale an impression of fullness that has a bit more staying power on the palate than expected.

Big fan of the style and this one did not let me down. Had it side by side with Lost Nation Gose to compare. This one was slightly more funky but not quite as clean. Great beer that I would love to have again.
