Fresh from East End.Drank from a Steelers pint glass.

Cloudy yellow with not much of a head.No lacing and no traces of a head either.

Notes of funk and wheat and some citrus.

I tasted wheat,orange,coriander and some sort of funky yeast.

Thin mouthful and very easy on the palate.You could drink alot of this considering the low abv.

Great beer but I think a growler is a bit too much for one person.

Appears a cloudy bright golden with a wispy white head, my first brew I sampled at this year's Penn Fest I have since enjoyed it on tap in number. Aromatics offer a tart lactic citrus twang with a touch of yeast and spiciness offered by the coriander. Flavor more of the that refreshing tartness bringing a dry finish light hop presence but the star of the show is the funk and salty sweet combo from the wheat malt. Just a kiss of coriander was there not the typical overdone version when it comes to coriander infused brews. Closest experience to liquid unpasteurized yogurt and citrus fruits I will ever find in a beverage that turns out refreshing and very palatable. Mouthfeel was light with naturally tight carbonation a little bit of pucker but not overbearing finishes bone dry of course. Drinkability was actually great even in the heat it was hitting on a level of refreshing and palate enlightenment that was perfect for the start of the 2008 Penn Microbrewer's fest.

A growler courtesy of Hojaminbag. Thanks Ben!

A: The ale is a pale straw color, a mix of gold and brown that gets darker at the widest part of the glass. A 2 finger head was fast to rise and fast to fall.

S: The aroma is quite tart, full of malted wheat. Coriander and a touch of smoke is also present. This beer should have some salt in it, but I can't pick any up in the nose.

T: The ale is quite tart, a sure sign of the wheat in the malt profile. The tartness is dry and makes me want another sip. The ale is spiced with coriander and the long-awaited sodium chloride. The yeast employed also adds to the profile with just a touch of clove. The tartness is present throughout, just below the surface but adding enough green apple flavor to remind you that it is here.

M: The spice profile and tartness conspire to create create an excellent ale. The tartness lingers but is light enough that this does not become a sour ale.

D: I don't know the ABV but I can't imagine that it is too high, there is certainly no indication of booze. East End is doing a great job in reintroducing dying styles and this one is top-notch.

I had this a while ago, and it was simply known as "Gose", but seeing that this is the only East End Gose, Here It Gose!

A. Served on tap into a pint glass. Light brown in color.

S. Musty malt, some barnyard elements.

T. A funky malty experience. I've never had a beer that tasted quite like this and its very memorable. Sour, malty, almost citric. Interesting.

M. Medium bodied.

D. I drank this with ease and would definately like to try it again.

Slightly cloudy yellow body with a very fluffy airy white head.

A strong wheat aroma comes out right away. Everyone I was drink with remarked that the Gose smells good.

Tasty. Mostly malted wheat character with a little bit of spiciness comes through. The flavor is dominated by ahuge wheat twang. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and well-carbonated.

Pretty drinkable, Great beer for a summer day.
