Not at all what I was expecting. Immediately hit with a lemon taste but in a very good way. Much better than you average summer seasonal brew. (142 characters)

Described as a full-bodied yet refreshing dry tart summer wheat ale. The use of acidulated malt gives it a bit of a perceived "sour" touch but there isn't any actual lacto/bacteria in the beer. Salt and subtle spices are added for that Gose-inspired touch. Apparently inspired by a Gose flying dog did with old bay. They used same wheat bill as the Yazoo 10 year IPA, then brewed with coriander and finished with a little sea salt to clean it up.

Poured off tap in the taproom, the second day it was offered. I could drink this all Summer. Appears a bit hazy, light straw colored in the glass. This is a goes-like beer, with the salt and the wheat and the coriander, but without the sour (rumors that a sour version is to come). This is just the perfect combination of sweet malts and salt, like salted caramel or chocolate-covered pretzels. Totally crushable, totally addictive. This is what Summer is for.

I could drink this all Summer. (941 characters)

Appearance: Medium clarity light gold.

Aroma: light wheat and coriander, no acidity.

Flavor: Very moderate but present acidity and coriander.

Mouthfeel: A bit too much residual sweetness, medium body.

Overall: Cool shot at a more true to style German gose. Mouthfeel was a bit off for me. (293 characters)

Freshness: Bottled 05-20-2014
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Midtown, Nashville

Hazy and the color of light honey, with a nice white head that shows good retention.

Smells of wheat and grass, with some underlying acidity/sourness.

The taste is tangy and slightly tart, with a touch of oranges and citrus zest. No bitterness from hops.

Lively carbonated and light in body, it has a finish that is semi-dry and tart, with some saltiness as well.

Different and refreshing, this is an easy drinking beer that is perfect for summer. (612 characters)

Solid offering from Yazoo out of Nashville, good gose interpretation. Not as sour as I'd like(Westbrook) but just as good as Kimmie. Good local go to though. (157 characters)
