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.

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.
