2.94/5 rDev -26.9%
A- cloudy gold with a very short lived white head. No lacing. Looks like a wheat beer, but once again, no head.
S- lemon, yeast... Really light. I get some cider-like notes, along with a really strange yeast funk. It almost reminds me of bakers yeast.
T- salty pizza dough with a light topping of lemon juice. Really really weird. The finish has very strong yeast notes.
M- light, refreshing. It finishes clean. This would be nice on a very hot day.
O- glad I tried it, but I probably wouldn't buy it again. I really wanted to love this beer, but it's just not for me.

Large bubble head to start and it dies to absolutely no bubbles within a minute. No bubbles mean no lace. The color is yellow-gold with a bit of a haze.
Soured pale malt is the predominant smell.
Quite tart, almost within the family of lambics but without the lingering aftertaste. Not nearly as flat as the initial appearance, but the carbonation is still well below my expectations. The body is on the thin side--reminds me of apple juice. Frankly, this is a bit disappointing.

Old gold color, limpid. Not so white foam, quite creamy.
In the smell the saltiness is very strong, on a malty base. No perceptible coriander.
At the taste the saltines is again very intense, and quite aggressive. Very dry.
In the back, you can feel some coriander, and also some other spices (orange peel).
A very peculiar style.
Drinkable and pleasant.

Served on-draught at Ohne Bedenken in Leipzig, Germany. Serving vessel was a half litre generic glass. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were above average.
A: Pours a three finger head of poor thickness, without any cream, and of poor retention. Colour is a hazy cloudy copper-orange.
Sm: A very delicate light aroma of light sourness. It's alright.
T: Not as sour as the other gosen I've tried. The lactic acidity does come through, although it's more present on the open and in the body than on the climax or finish. The sourness is largely on the climax but feels held back and restrained. It seems like a somewhat weak rendering of the original recipe. Even the salt isn't particularly notable. Lemon esters are the only esters I detect. Fairly complex. Balanced for the style.
Mf: Smooth and wet, but just the right amount. Complements the flavours of the body.
Dr: Pricey by German standards, and not particularly brilliant. Certainly worth a try to experience a restrained form of the style. Not a beer you'd have often, but it would make for a nice occasional gose.

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.

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.
