When I watched it poured I commented on how light and watery it appeared. A light bronze coloring it was capped by a thin fizzy foam.
The nose is starchy with a wheat malt. There is a touch of fruit like apples but it's light.
The flavor is so much better than the other aspects were revealing. The taste is bold Apple cider, sweet pear, Sweet Tarts candy and a layer of starchy wheat. I did not detect any saltiness but the fruit and sour combination was quite exceptional.
The feel was substantial enough but it didn't have a lot of tanginess. Moderately carbonated it was very easy to drink.
I may have missed the salty qualities that the style should have, and a judge might deduct points, but the overall flavor is very nice.

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.
