3.03/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

P: Minimal white head that fades fast and holds close to the edge leaving a well of crystal clear golden brew.

S: Fresh grains, subtle citrus, salt, maybe honey mustard, pilsner malt and coriander. Aroma is simple but clean.

T/M: I'm not tasting the Gose in this at all. It lacks tartness and is really much more of a pilsner than a Gose. The taste follows the nose with crisp grains and honeyed citrus with the addition of a white grape wine like profile. After taste is like lemon camomile tea and leaves the palate wet. Carbonation is spicy and nice on the medium body that finishes grainy. Second beer brings more acidity and a similarity to sparkling water like lemon San Pellegrino. I think I may have missed out on the yeast at the bottom the frat time. Much better the second go round.

O: I was really excited to grab this Gose. I love the style but this was not a success. Overall the beer was easy drinking and tastes great. My withdraw us the style choosing for this beer. Didn't really hit the mark stylistically but I would drink this regularly.

Rating was based on style.
Taste rating is a 3.75

2.83/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: pours a 1/2" white head that recedes quickly with virtually no lacing. Color is a hazy golden with sediment in suspension and significant carbonation present.
Aroma: smells much like a pilsener to me (this is my first ever Gose style). There is a smell of clean water, lightly toasted malts, a little yeast, and maybe a slight tart hop smell.
Mouthfeel: is light and watery. Finish is fairly dry.
Flavor: tastes much like a pilsener combined with a wheat beer. There is a pleasant barley malt flavor with a mild hop bitterness and just a hint of spice (from the coriander I assume, but it is not strong the way coriander sometimes shows up in Belgian style ales).
