The beer pours a dark, hazy gold with a fizzy, white, soda-pop head that quickly fizzles away. In body the beer is dark, yet translucent, showing murky, cloudy hints of the other side of the glass, along with a healthy torrent of bubbles. No particles can be seen in the beer. On the nose, the beer smells lightly tart and wheaty, like a wheat flake and a subdued Berliner Weisse. Light saline notes also puff upon the tongue, though I don’t think I would detect them if I didn’t know this was a gose. Lemon citrus is light, yet bright on the nose, giving a nice pop and inviting you to drink the beer. On the tongue, the beer tastes initially tart, nearly puckering, but this mellows into a soft, bready sweetness with just a touch of saltiness, and a deeper earthy sense to suggest that this is a gose. In flavor, the beer begins as sharp lemon-lime citrus, which mellows into sweet lemon, then lemon bread, and then slowly works into a soft, fluffy, wheat flake flavor that finishes soft and comforting on the tongue for a decent amount of time. In the middle of the taste, the earthy and mineral flavors can be distinctly sensed as the lemon citrus dies down. The aftertaste is soft, but distinctly flavored with wheat malt notes. In the mouth, the beer feels fizzy, yet light in body. The carbonation is at soda-levels, with a slightly sharp effervescence that snaps upon the tongue and gives the beer a crispness. The mouth is left wet with acid-canceling saliva on the cheeks and a very soft chalkiness. Overall, this beer is hugely refreshing and very tasty. It’s not quite as salty as I was hoping it would be, but it’s the first old-world gose I’ve tried, so I blame new world interpretations for making me expect big salt. The beer is soft, yet nuanced, like a well-crafted ginger ale with alcohol and deeper citrus flavors. It’s crisp, refreshing, and perfect to slake your thirst in summer. Try this beer.

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.
