3.45/5  rDev -14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The beer poured a light golden colour with a thin white head, which disappeared rather quickly.

The nose was really unusual, spicy like a wheat beer, laced with citrus fruit, in particular oranges and also a distinct smell of sour milk.

In terms of taste, again there was a citrusy twang, but like the flavour you get with soluble vitamin tablets, like minerals. The thing I found surprising was just how salty it tasted, almost as though the beer had been made with sea water.

Certainly a very interesting beer, but not one I could imagine drinking regularly.

500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head that didn't stick around for too long. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like tart fruit (citrus, apple), wheat, peaches, and some salty herbalness. It tastes like lemon/lemon peel, wheat, earthy herbalness, salt, tart peaches, and tart apples. Moutfheel/body is light/medium, it's tart and refreshing with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, good thing for me I bought 2 bottles! $5.79 a bottle.

A - Dark golden colour. Thin white head.

S - Mild funk and citrus. Getting some malt on the nose as well.

T - Citrus up front then coriander and and salt. Cannot taste the alcohol at all. Enjoying this on a hot summer day, it is a very refreshing beer.

M - Very smooth, crisp, and slightly puckering.

O - Great beer. I really enjoy how different this style of beer is.

On tap at The Pint In West Lafayette, IN. 11 bucks for 16 ounces. Eep. But, you know, I'm a fancy man with fancy tastes...

Pours more filtered-looking that the American goses I've had. I know that the style isn't filtered and that Ritterguts is a prime traditional example of the style, but it just wasn't all that cloudy. Very dark gold, however, with a small white cap.

Smells of tart lacto, big nodes of red cherries. Tastes like cherries up front, corriander and salt near the middle, and it finishes with the sharp esterless-ness you get out of a low-hop european pils. Basically it's like a combination between a good Berliner Weiss and a good continental pilsener, and it's much more balanced than any of the America goses I've drank. Well done.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Medium gold - darker than most goses - and moderately hazy, with a finger's worth of white fluffy head and medium visible carbonation.

S: Tart citric, mildly funky, with wheat and cracker malts that have minimal grainy character.

T: Tart lemon citric; cracker, wheat and husky pilsner malts, mild salinity, and a bit of barnyard. Finishes dry with lemon citric tartness.

M: Light body, medium carbonation sensation, and essentially no alcohol presence.

O: This is very tasty – an excellent gose, and an examplar of a style that's catching on at long last. Recommended for sure.
