The Mad Scientists kept tweakin' that Jammer till it rocked so hard. Bygone brewers repping the Sixpoint star provided the concept and our friends at Jacobsen Salt hooked us up with the key ingredient. It's salty, it's sour, and it's slammin.' It's Mad Science.

I am a little surprised to see the pedestrian scores for this brew, especially considering the reverence in which I usually hold Sixpoint. Big white head initially, but it doesn't last. Pale yellow color and sour malt dominates the nose.

Interesting flavor features citrus and finishes sour. Not a lot of tricks or gimmicks, although it is quite dry. Definitely true to the style in my opinion. I can taste the salt in the finish, which is a nice touch. Not the most drinkable Gose I've ever tried, but I'm sure it would be just fine in Brooklyn summer heat.

L- The beer pours an opaque yellow orange with a 1 and half inch off white head.
N- The nose is a mustiness I associate with wheat beers and a bit of coriander.
T- As a gose goes this one is definitely light on the tartness scale. The wheat aroma in the nose translate here to the palate with that same mustiness. The salt touch is light on the finish and well done. Coriander is also thankfully light.
F- Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium, but maybe a bit to full for the style. Carbonation is medium on the initial pour, but feels lighter while drinking.
O- Overall I'd say this is a fairly Safe take on the style. None of the flavors are particularly strong or objectionable, but to a lover of the style it will come off as a bit bland. For balance howerver the beer is a very easy drinker on a hot day and my glass is already empty by the time I'm finishing this review.

"Best by 10/14/16"; drank 6/9/16 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge, noisy bright white head; frothy lace.

Lemon & fresh soap notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Orange peel & dry lime flavors up front; sea salt bite & faint fresh soap notes on the finish. A bit mild for the style, but a nice summer brew.

COD 5/12/17. Hazy golden pour that is effectively opaque. Outstanding head volume and lacing. Retention is very good.

Very light nose that is good. Light salt is detected underneath and serves as the base along with light biscuit malt that hints at sweetness. A light airy lemon note floats above the base. No coriander was detected.

Light body that is slightly smoother than water. Borderline outstanding carbonation / body balance that provides an effervescent middle and is rather prickly on the finish.

The balance of the flavor profile is world class, nothing dominates. Unfortunately, nothing really pops resulting in a disappointing intensity level and a lack luster complexity. Lemon arrives first and is refreshingly tart. Lemon flows into the finish with very little impact from any other flavors. The middle is neither bitter or sweet - although you can get a bit of graininess if you look for it. Coriander was never detected - and I love coriander. Salt is delicately balanced and remains covered until the lingering finish when it lingers in the middle and back of the tongue. Overall, a solid unassuming gose that is highly quaffable but not quite up to a very good rating.

Can dated 12th May 2017 - Poured into an English pub glass - I received this sample from Sixpoint for review.

L - Pours a clear gold, 1 finger fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing as it goes down.

S - Overt coriander, a playful and light tartness.

T - Following the nose you get a tickle of tart with a punch of coriander sweeping in, finishing dry with a nice salinity.

F - Light bodied, moderate carbonation.

O - I wanted to like this beer, as I really love the Gose style but I'm not a huge fan of coriander. I personally prefer more of a lactic sour bite up front. All that being said, it's the perfect intro to sour beers for newbies or those that enjoy coriander.

L: bright gold with streams of bubbles rushing to the surface to join a frothy white cap with fair retention.

S: coriander, light cracker and there is a trace of lemony or yogurt tartness.

T: Coriander flavors introduce this refreshingly tart beer joined by light lemon and a mild dose of salt. Hop flavors and bitterness are minimal. Jammer is well balanced between the malt, the tart and the spice with a salty tart aftertaste.

F: light, highly carbonated but fairly soft, tart with some minor prickle.

O: This is a very easy to drink, tart, refreshing beer.

Lightly weathered copper orange in color with a heavy wheat haze. Poured with a moderate soapy white foam with low retention. Light wheat malt aroma. Medium light bodied with medium, tart carbonation. Medium bready wheat up front followed by medium tartness through the middle. Tartness transitions to saltiness followed by light spicy pepper. Finished dryly and cleanly with lightly lingering peppery notes. Very refreshing. Great flavor sensations and pleasant tartness. Carbonation was a little light foe the style. Easy drinking if you're into tart and a little sour.

Absolutely no sour or tart aspect associated with this, although crushable, ale.

Pours clear gold to light amber with a foamy white head that recedes pretty quickly. No lacing. Aroma is limited, a touch of salt, a mild breadiness, really can't detect the coriander. Taste escalates the aromas just a tad with a salty and tart start to a relatively sweet and simple wheaty malt presence, and the coriander is much more present as it warms. Feel is very unique being very light and thirst quenching yet still having some slick almost mineral oil like feel to it. Overall, this may be the closest I've had to an authentic German Gose made by an American brewery, and has gotten more enjoyable with each can. Prost!

Right away the nice tart and wheat scent. Hints of the coriander and salt. A little fruit with the tart. Solid. Seems to fade in time to almost nothing.
Dense off-white head, mostly cloudy golden yellow and lots of rising bubbles.
A little more complexity with the drink. A quick hit of sweetness right up front but it leaves early. Hits of grain. Somewhat drying finish. Tartness is a bit subdued compared to many others.
Solid. Goes down well, but a little bland.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a clear yellow color with streams of carbonation seen rising to fill a rapidly dieing foamy white laced head. The lacing is messy and slightly clingy. The smell starts off with a crisp sweet lemon and comes about into the "wheaty"/graininess base. The taste had a mild sweet citrus over the wheat, sweet and mild. Salt is there but mild and allows the citrus to power into the aftertaste and leave a semi-sticky finish. On the palate, it definitely sits light on the body with a wonderful refreshing sessionability about it. Overall, I like it for me. But however, I don’t get any "sour" or "tart" in the flavor. Would be a good one for beginners.
