3.8% ABV
11.5 oz brown beer bottle $5.99 at Provisions Northampton MA
Appearance: light amber/dark honey - small head dissipates quickly to thin film, good bit of trub in the bottom
Smell: wow - so unexpected, maybe grapefruit but mild
Flavor: very mild - saltwater
Overall: 2/5 I don't dislike it, but I get no flavor really at all. Nothing special.
To me it tastes like a glass of water with a splash of beer and a tsp of salt. Certainly not worth the $ for me.

Preface: Let me first start by saying this is my first "Gose". I'm not a massive fan of sours thus far and know little and have little of the styles. This is the opinion of a sour noob so don't take it too seriously.

A: A hazy golden color. Moderate head retention but little lacing.

S: Corainder for sure. Some salt as well. Bakers yeast and a touch of tartness. A strange aroma like no other beer I've smelled.

T: Coriander is pretty present coming forward as lemony. A bit of salt in the finish. Slightly bready .The sourness is really what kills it for me. It just seems like spoiled home brew. It's not exactly "sour" per say but more funky and strange tasting. There is a bit of tartness though. The aftertaste makes me want to drain pour honestly.

M: Light bodied with slightly higher carbonation.

O: I'm sorry but maybe Gose just isn't my style. I poured it. I'm sure this is a great example of the style but it's just not for me.

Golden colour, small head that fades soon leaving some lace. Aroma of lemon, salt, fruits, hints of coriander. Light body, good carbonation. Taste is sour, lemon salt, fruits. Not for all palates.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a subtle crisp dried looking orange to yellow color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated fairly quickly. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell started off with a big burst of lemon, lime and citrus rind. The taste, pretty much, copied the smell. It had a light tartness about it along with the sourness as well and had a dry sweet citrus to semi-tart aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a big sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good and low, and got slightly sticky in the feel. Overall, I liked it for me, but don’t necessarily see it as a gose as it was pretty weak on the "salt" flavor.

A - Thick, foamy head with large bubbles that dissipates rather quickly. Light straw colour and a little cloudy. No lacing at all.

S - coriander, salt, wheat.

T - Salt and some lemon tartness upfront and then nothing followed with a salty finish. Maybe a little too much salt for my liking.

M - Nice mouth feel. Fairly refreshing beer.

O - A decent attempt at this style.. It's worth trying once but I will not buy it again. I much prefer the Ritterguts Gose.

3.44/5  rDev -9.2%

375 mL bottled 25/03/14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma – faint maybe coriander
Head huge (7 cm), off white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing until stabilizing at a 3 mm layer
Lacing none
Body light yellow, cloudy
Flavor very light; the spiciness comes through initially but quickly fades; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3.25, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.44. Final weighted score: 3.44
This is a pleasant Gose, very drinkable, and less salty than Westbrook, Anderson Valley, or Leipziger Gose; that may make it more palateable to those who do not like gose-style beers. The appearance and body are typical of goses while the aroma seems a little weak. Still, this is a very pleasant, highly sessionable beer.

Bottle. A sweet, fruity, tangy smelling beer. The flavor is less sweet than the nose. I find it to taste somewhat limey. Also lemons. Saltiness is present on the tongue. Body sticks to the tongue. Refreshing at first then I begin to find flaws.
