Appearance: colour of mango flesh, with a fine white head that fades to a thin layer after a minute

Aroma: orange, clementine - the sweeter citrus fruits; coriander, very fresh

Taste & Mouthfeel: interesting sour, salty, sweet mash-up, all fighting for attention; lemon, sour green grapes, wheat cracker, and lightly herbal from the coriander; light body and crisp, dry mouthfeel; the lingering tartness has a cleansing feel; it's simple but executed very well, super fresh

Overall: get a sense of purity and cleansing - like this beer is doing something good for you. Certainly doing something good for my tastebuds. Great for summer afternoons

11.5 ounce bottle poured into an oversized snifter.

Pillow-like, sudsy foam forms over a cloudy golden body with robust carbonation. The carbonation adds some elegance. The head persists well, remaining a finger thick longer after pouring. Pretty. 5

From the bottle I notice a peachy, coconut-like aroma, something almost akin to sunscreen (in a good sense). Salt is there when I sniff hard enough and the collective aroma reminds me of a fruitier wine. 4

There must be peach added to this brew because it's all over my taste buds. That and a floral middle before the salty, wheaty lingering finish. Coriander is more noticeable here than on most other goses I've had and I appreciate that. Matter of fact, I appreciate all the flavors here. This just tastes delicious. 4.25

This feels like everything a gose should be: salty, dry, lip-puckering, lightly sweet and spiced. The tartness satisfies and the salt and dryness just compel further sipping. 4.5

I already want more and I've hardly finished my current pour. This beer requires an online order or a CO trip and I'd gladly do both. Excellent.

375ml bottle - whew, this summer of sour beers is really starting to take its toll on me!

This beer pours a clear, medium golden amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and fizzy dirty white head, which leaves a bit of microbe colony lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of lemon/lime zest, grainy wheat malt, damp saltine crackers, coriander and white pepper spice, and a small hint of earthy and floral hop bitters. The taste is bready and slightly doughy pale malt, a lesser edgy wheatiness, mixed citrus rind, sour cream, raw sea salt, muddled earthy spice (coriander, I suppose), and more herbal, leafy, and gently floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite active in its thorough, palate-engaging frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and actually fairly smooth, maybe just the saltiness feeling a touch weird and out of place at this juncture. It finishes off-dry, the fruity and malt essences tangling with the lingering spiced and salty notes.

Overall, this is a pleasant enough version of the style, with the adjuncts coming together to provide a solid, refreshing summertime brew. Nothing dominates, and balance is achieved, which is no small thing in today's take no tastebud prisoner world.

11.5 ounce bottle. Served in a Ritterguts Gose glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with almost a couple inch white head. Head retention is good, but there isn't much lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like salt, wheat/grainy malt, minerals, citrus peel and a bit of coriander. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, but there's a lot of salty, briny minerally character to this brew. It's a more salty/minerally gose. The longer I drink this, the more I'm liking it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this a lot. If you're looking for more salt/mineral flavors in a gose, then you'll like this one. But if you're looking for more tartness, then you probably won't. I know I'd buy this again! $4.75 a bottle.

Bought in Bellingham ...yep, USA. Not the first Canadian beer I've found only down there. WTF?

Pours gold with a faint haze and almost a finger of white head. Sweet grainy wheat, sour, some berries and orchard fruit and a touch of lavender ..I think. Some faint floral perfume anyways.

Interesting taste, mineral saltiness, light savory herbs, a touch of lavender (maybe I'm just weird??), faint berries, Very light sourness just cleans up the finish leaving just a mineral feeling (is that a thing?) coating the mouth and light prickliness from the lowish carbonation.

Very interesting take on the style. Extra points for that. Seems more refined than your average gose ...and might I add that it's pretty fucking cool to be able to say "your average gose" these days.

Tap: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a medium size foamy head. Aroma of salt with light tart wheat malt notes Taste is a mix between some salt notes with light tart wheat notes and some light coriander notes. Body is quite full considering the low ABV with good carbonation. Quite refreshing though maybe a tad too salty for my taste buds.
