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.

Poured from a slim 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear medium golden pour with thin head. Modest lacing.

S: Funky.. slightly tart and lemony.

T/F: Salty... almost unpleasantly so. Minimal tartness... some funk and citrus. Pretty mild flavor really... not a lot here. A little grass maybe... light bodied and well carbonated.

O: Meh... I love Sixpoint's IPA's but this was disappointing. Too salty (even for style), not enough bite, and no reason to come back. It's only plus is drinkability.

Jammer brewed by Sixpoint Brewery, with an ABV of 4.20% This Leipzig Gose pours out of a 12oz can into a pint beer glass a nice golden amber color with a nice white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with grains and malts. You also pick up sour notes along with salt. There is also a decent amount of hop bitterness in the smell as well. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is citrus flavors with beer. Really smooth an easy going. The sea salt is a nice touch to this brew. This is one of the more milder Gose on the market. These brews are known for there sour nature, however this one seems to be more sweet than sour. It is a nice mix. The body of Jammer is a solid medium, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. This Gose has a super nice balance to it. I can't get over how smooth this brew goes down. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. The mouth feel is Clean, Smooth, Sweet, Sour , and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Jammer a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to.Sixpoint Brewery, did a real nice job with this brew.
If you are looking for something a different I would look this one up .

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Stamped on bottom of can is canning date of '06APR18'.
Cloudy, pale gold colored body. Some fizzy head upon pouring but this quickly dissipates, which results in numerous rising bubbles at the surface. No lacing.
Subdued aromas of lemon, wheat malt, and salt. The latter two are quite faint.
Slight tartness in the taste, which leads to an earthy flavor, and then finishes dry with the salt.
Light, higher carbonated mouth feel. Easily quaffable.
Quite refreshing but nothing really pops as to aroma or taste. For a summer sipper, this is suitable. The salted dryness leads to continuing sipping.

I can definitely taste the sea salt and coriander but the reason I rated this so low is because a gose is suppose to be sour/tart and there is neither of those flavors incorporated in this beer. This shouldn’t be considered to be a gose. A bad representation of the style.

Not much Sour, not much salt. Wouldn’t buy again. Six point is better than this.

A sincere shoutout to my friends at Six Point Brewery near my home of Brooklyn, NY. Their take on the traditionally overwhelmingly sour gose is one that deserves much appraisal. This beer is refreshing, and the sip goes down easier than water. While the beer is incredibly drinkable and perfect for a hot summers day, it’s 4.0%ABV provides less of a kick than a traditional summer ale. That being said, this beer is sour, but not to a point where It is overwhelming, no flavor in this beer is. The saltiness compliments the orangey —citrus tang and only adds to the flavor. To add to its great, refreshing taste, the can make me want to redesign my house. Not only does it taste like a summer beer, but it looks like It belongs buried next to a sand castle !

Six Point Jammer is probably my favorite drinking beer for the summer.

There may be better beers that I've had, but I have put back 12 of these in short order whilst hardly noticing my pace. The can is like jewelry. It is possibly the easiest drinking beverage I have ever consumed. If I were faced with the challenge to drink 144 ounces of any liquid, I would undoubtedly choose this gem.

The fact that it is only available over the summer makes it all the more appealing. Scarcity is attractive. That's fine with me, though. This beer is meant for summer vibes. It is sour, but not too sour. It has a VERY unique smell. It's difficult to describe. A nice balance of saltiness, sour, and summer fruits. Nothing is too overpowering. The color has a nice shimmer that takes in the sun beams. The can is tall and skinny, perfect for grasping and throwing back.

The can pops crisp. I wouldn't even recommend pouring the Jammer into a glass. The smell still radiates from the small tab opening in the can. It keeps the freshness preserved. Not that it should take you very long to finish.

Grab a few 6 packs while you're at it, because you will regret only buying one. Everyone will want some. Even your stuck up aunt who "hates alcohol." Even your wife. Even your picky son who won't eat his veggies and throws up when you spoon feed him Motrin. They'll all fall in love with Six Point's fine take on a Gose - their best beer to date. Check out their Galacto too, that's a close competitor although I believe it is limited edition.
