Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.

Smell follows the nose of salt and coriander. Clean taste and finish. A very straightforward Gose. No bells or whistle, just a nice balanced example of the style.

The lightly hazed dark golden or light orange colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1/4" white head that soon recedes to a thin irregular layer and island on the surface of the liquid. There is a small ring of foam that slowly gets smaller but doesn't really disappear. Sipping creates a couple of arches and lots of small patches and a few legs of lacing.

The light aromas include a touch of saltiness, some coriander, some graininess and a hint of citrus.

The flavors are similar to what is expected from the nose but more forward and with a light but noticeable grainy sweetness and a bit tartness. The coriander shows against a background of almost hidden herbal bitterness.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and fairly smooth with the very light carbonation. The longish finish begins fairly soon as the grainy sweetness recedes to allow the tartness to show a bit more before it too fades and leaves the dry closing to the coriander and that touch of herbal bitterness.

On the whole reasonably refreshing but I'd not say it is anything outstanding or worth writing home about. I'd be willing to have another but won't seek more out. It's a good beer for a hot summer's day or a party on the porch or patio. While less tart and salty than other examples of Gose I've tried it's still an enjoyable beer and is more likely to invite having another can than some of the more tart examples.

Fizzly head that dissipates to a thin ring on top of a golden apple juice color.

Aromas of Asian Pear, apricot. Faint sea salt.

Flavors of the pear and apricot come out, moreso the skins than anything. Pink sea salt, white pepper, coriander, all show up in the middle, and cilantro rounds out the finish with more asian pear.

Feel is crisp and clean, very wet, very quenching. Nice dry character on the finish.

It's one of the more unique Gose's I've had. The pear and apricot are sincerely new to me here. I'd say it's worth having if you're looking for a new type of Gose. Not bad at all.

Poured out of a can into a weizen glass yields a medium dark straw color with a touch of foam that retains.
The first sniff reveals a freshly cut wheat followed by a whiff of lemony tartness. All throughout, a floral and perfume aroma pervades, as well as a graham cracker and caramel malt like sweetness. I found it to be an interesting combination for a Gose.
When it enters the mouth it is light and crisp. Furthermore, the coriander adds a light spice and prickle on the tongue. At first the taste is fairly clean, however, as it warms it begins to highlight the grains of malt and wheat. In the finish you truly feel the lemony tartness and mild saltiness.
This Gose was less salty and tart than other styles. Perhaps it is more accessible to the uninitiated. Not a bad example of the style.

Dark gold to light copper in color with a light haziness from the sea salt. There's a fingernail of off white covering the top. The coriander dominates the nose, but I'm also getting the sea salt. The taste is slightly more coriander oriented than sea salt, but it is fairly well balanced overall. The mouth is moderately salty, crisp, and refreshing. This would be a good introductory gose for those new to the style.
