look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The beer comes in a hazy orange color.

The aroma has lemon lactic, slight metallic, lots of stone fruit for the style, wheat

The flavor follows with a good layering of flavors. Lemon juice, green plum, wheat, a slight biscuity malt character.

A refreshing brew with a medium minus tart quality.

A well rounded gose.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours with a finger of bubbly white head. Murky body that is orange with some tints of red. Lots of active carbonation continued to regenerate the head.

Smell: Wheat, some medium bodied fruits, and some light spices greet the drinker. Salt and lime mesh well on the body. There is an earthy, almost dusty aroma that lingers throughout.

Taste: Light tart lemons and a pleasant wheat body are picked up right away. Saltiness, dried fruits, and figs open up on the body. Tartness shows up again on the back end but is well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Good wheat base with balanced salt and tartness. Carbonation isn't as bright on the mouthfeel as other Gose I've had but is still noticeable.

Overall: A great benchmark for the style, isn't overly tart or malt forward. You get both aspects without one drowning the other out. I would definitely buy more of this in the future when I'm looking for a Gose fix.

Was at a local beer place, and surprised to find this chilling in the cooler. Just the perfect beer for a hot sticky day.

Poured a wonderful, clear, filtered bright gold. A bit of a head, but that faded fast, with no lacing. Very appetizing. 3.75/5

Solid, if light, nose. Malty, sweet, with more of a wet wheat aroma, with a hint of the tart flavor. 3.5/5

Great, bracing taste. A shock of tart, but not overly citrusy, nor overly like underripe fruit. Some goses go too hard with the citrus, but that can be overpowering; here, it's balanced so well that it tastes very bright. On the back end, the salty undertones come through. Just delicious 4.25/5

The tartness and the saltiness really brighten the palate. A nice sip leaves your mouth watering for another. What's better than that? 4.25/5

I can't say that it's perfect for every occasion, or for volume, but it's a perfect situation choice for a hot summer day. The tartness and the saltiness open the tastebuds, and besides it's just a delicious beer. The fiancee really liked it as well--her first gose--and said it was more refreshing than a shandy and tasted much better. 4.25/5

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.
