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.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear pale yellow. A thin white head rests atop. Nose is of wheat, malt, crackers. Ample carbonation. This beer was crisp and easy to drink. Nice mellow smooth flavor of wheat, lemon zest, white bread. This beer was a nice simple break from the big bold beers I've had of late. My first of the style as well. Not sure how representative this is, but I liked it. Great beer for the summer months.
