2.23/5  rDev -32.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Had on-tap at Jupiter in Berkeley, CA. Served in a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

A - A beautiful reddish amber opaque body, when held to the sky. Had barely a head, which quickly formed a slight ring around the rim.

S - I dont know if it was because there was piping hot sausage pizza on my plate, or the wrong glassware for a gose, but I could not smell very much out of the glass. I got very faint floral and cranberry-esque hints. Marionberry, where art thou?

T - Bitter cranberry juice mixed with a brown ale past its prime is the best way I can describe it. Tartness is present but lacking. No salt or lactic acid taste whatsoever.

M - Very light bodied and light carbonation. Would be easy to drink if it did not taste so aweful.

O - Wow, what a downer. It looked beautiful, but taste was extremely lacking. I almost feel like this was not a gose. It was slightly tart, but lacked the salt and lactic flavor I was looking for in a gose. It also lacked a distinct marionberry flavor and tasted more like old cranberries, and I only got hibiscus in the scent, not the flavors. I would not buy again, nor would I recommend it.

3.29/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Arrives a reddish color, not unlike a blood orange, with an poofy white head. Retention not so great, drops to a ring pretty quickly and leave no lace.
Smell is fruity with some malt note and just a whiff of the hibiscus present.
Taste has less balance. The fruit and its acidity are there, the hibiscus is, not surprisingly, nigh on impossible to find. Malt is there, though.
A good bit under medium bodied with a light effervescence . Acidic and drying after the swallow, the fruit note lingers nicely. Decent but not great.

3.61/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle, date stamped on label of Mar 28 13. Served in a stange glass, the beer pours a slightly reddish/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is OK, and there wasn't much lacing at all. The brew smells like marionberries, flowers (which I assume is from the hibiscus), and wheat. It tastes like marionberries, wheat, and a bit of floralness (once again, from the hibiscus). Moutfheel/body is light/medium, it's easy to drink and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a decent enough brew, although I'm not sure if I would call this a gose or not. Regardless, it wasn't bad at all. $8.49 a 4-pack.
