500ml worth of good ol' gose, this has to be one of the all-time great labels in beer I'd say.
Beer is dark pee yellow, white head of about a finger. A thin ring is eventually all that's left behind with some spots of lace.
Though I definitely get the salt/acidity from the nose, I'd say spice is a bit stronger, coriander and a grassy/herbal/straw feel. Grainy and bready malt aroma along with some light sweetness. Kind of reminds me of a saison in a way, but its German-ness is obvious.
Taste brings on more sour salt acidity and lemons, a good amount here that nears tame gueuze territory I'd say. Like the nose, the 'German' elements are really what set it apart though - big grain/bread/wheat presence, herbal+grassy notes all around, a feel similar to a pilsner or helles underneath that biting sourness. Straw, saltine crackers, maybe some green grapes. Nice, crisp and toasty on the finish.
Decent body to it considering the low ABV, with carbonation a little bit on the lower side. Sourness makes this one a bit of a sipper for me.
Though I am pretty inexperienced when it comes to the style, I'd say this is a good amount more sour than the one other I've tried (Lost Nation Gose) - which makes this one a little less refreshing/drinkable, but still a nice interplay of salty&sour and German malt flavor.

Pours a soapy, white head. A sour, yeasty aroma. Turbid, straw color. Starts with a crisp, bright, refreshing citrus flavor with a lot of tartness. Builds into a smooth, maltiness with citrus behind it. Finish is malt, slight sourness, and citrus.
This is excellent. Tart, crisp, refreshing, and delicous.
