Slightly hazy peach color with just a bit of white foam. Aroma has the rhubarb, a bit of yogurt and some sea water. Taste starts tart and fruity, slightly savory, really well balanced. Light to medium body with medium to low carbonation. A really good gose, maybe the best version of the Geisterzug series.

Decanted into a shaker glass, pours a hazy yellow-brown color with a very foamy head (although minimal lacing evident. Distinct sea salt and pitted fruit nose, tastes predictably salty with clove, lemon, and grapefruit notes. Surprisingly light-bodied. I think this would be ideal to drink on the beach on a hot summer day. Who needs more conventional replacement fluids?

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Straight forward slightly hazy and unfiltered looking appearance with a fairly shiny dark brass like yellow color. Not much head but very off white colored and creamy settling to a very thin puck.

Real great nose. Chewy wheat like balance and a mild strawberry sweet like sense of sourness as well. Herbal green and a hint of sage and even cardamom like spices also. Very clean sensing but also dense. Fantastic aroma.

Palate really displays great classic wheat density. Nice mellow tartness and hints of soft lemon juice. Good coating and thick malt action with hints of strangely red like berried fruit. Mild tang sourness but with a lingering soft sweetness. Hardly tart or puckering, but with a good almost green garden earthy quality, and spice to match.

The rhubarb doesn't seem to be coming through in the taste but seems to make the beer very wonderful. Great brew.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation judging from the rising bubbles at the edge of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of rhubarb are present in the nose. The smell becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is a little sour, having hints of rhubarb and salt. The rhubarb flavors strengthen as the beer warms.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a good representation of the style and is easy to drink. The rhubarb helps to make the aromas and flavors a little more interesting.

Serving type: bottle
