look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a brown 500 mL bottle with no dating information that I could find on the label or bottle. Poured into a classic weizen glass.

Appearance - Standard pour yields a single finger of stark white, frothy head, with a few larger bubbles bunching up on one side of the glass where I finished the pour. Retention is pretty good, but obviously nothing like you'd expect from a regular hefeweizen, with the foam receding to a half finger and leaving little to no lacing on the sides of the glass. The body is a hazy blend of straw and lemon yellow hues, with carbonation bubbles building up on the bottom of the glass before drifting lazily to the surface intermittently.

Smell - The presence of tart, lactic acid is the first thing that hits my olfactory nerves, with a pinch of lemon and some salty brine characteristics. Beneath that initial assault is a softer grainy characteristic and just a subtle hint from what I imagine is coriander spice.

Taste - I love how refreshing and tart this is, but not overpoweringly sour. Brine and lemon zest are up front, along with a nice bready wheat component to prevent the acidity from getting carried away. There's also some funk and barnyard element, but it's not enough to overshadow the refreshing tartness.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and moderate carbonation, with a tangy feel on the finish.

Overall, a solid take on the style. Could easily be up there with some of my favorites--plenty of tart and salt, but isn't just an overpowering sour bomb. There is actually subtlety of flavor going on here.

Bottle from Proof. Pours a clear straw with bubbly white head that faded pretty quickly to nothing. No wisps, collar, anything. Aroma is grassy and dry yeast tartness. Taste is tart throughout, slightl pear fruitiness, and slightly metallic. Light body and low carbonation. Very drinkable though.

Hazy yellow grassy color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Aroma of buttery corn and yeast. Flavor is initially yeasty, but not overpowering. Flavor evolves to corny malt and finishes crisp with zesty lemon and some spice, sorta peppery. Some spicy lemon lingers. Relatively low drinkability due to the yeast/lemon combo that was a bit much for my pallete.

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.

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...

Pours two finger of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is fresh baked bread, limes and wet hay.
The taste has a mild lemon bitter beginning and quickly moves to a strong sour and tart flavor.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It has an uncommon taste for today's brews, but it's quite enjoyable.
