"Best before 2/16/17"; drank 12/22/16 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE, noisy bright white head; frothy lace.

Mild barnyard funk & salt notes in the nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

Salt & mild lime flavors; water-y margarita vibes.

This was drinkable, but it's a below-average take on the gose style.

12 oz can with a BB date of Feb. 2018.
Pours with a slightly hazy amber body topped by a sizable but weak head. Minimal lacing.
Typical unenticing aroma with a typical flavor. Moderate salt and tartness for style.

I picked up a can of Unita's Ready Set Gose for $1.69 at The Lager Mill. I don't think I've ever had a sour from this brewery and I'm interested to see how it turns out, so lets see how it goes. 2017 Vintage. Poured from a 12oz can into a teku.

A- The label looks nice, it's got a nice design that goes with the name. It poured a hazy golden color that took on more of pale golden color when held to the light and it had almost three fingers worth of cream white head that died down to a thin ring that eventually faded away and it left a little bit of patchy lacing behind. This is a pretty nice looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the coriander being the first to show up and it impart a typical coriander like aroma that's followed by a fruit aroma that's a mix of citrus and stone fruit like aroma. Up next comes a noticeable soapy aroma that leads into the malts which impart some light grainy, bready, and doughy malt aromas. This beer has a nice aroma, but I could go without the soapy aspect.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma, but not soapy and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the coriander still being the first to show up and it shows up just a little less than it did in the aroma. Up next comes that same fruity aspect that takes on more of a lemon aspect this time and it goes into a slightly lighter amount of medium sourness. Towards the end comes the malts which impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma and this time they show up a little more. On the finish the sourness doesn't linger too much and there's a little saltiness with a lemon, light coriander and malty aftertaste. This is a nice tasting beer, but I wish the flavors were a little bolder like they are normally for this style.

M- Fairly smooth, a little refreshing, not to crisp, medium bodied with a lower amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is decent, but it could use more carbonation.

Overall I thought this was a decent beer and it was pretty close to an average example of the style, it wasn't bad, but it didn't really stick out for the style and the all aspects seemed to be a little lighter than are normally for the style. This beer had ok drinkability, one can is enough for me, I don't really have the urge to come back for more. What I like the most about this beer is the appearance, it's a nice looking beer. What I like the least about this beer was the soapy aromas and the lighter carbonation, those two aspects could use some work. I don't think I would buy this beer again and I can't say I would highly recommend it since it's not too hard to find a better example of the style. All in all I didn't mind this beer, but I didn't love it and it seemed like it was a little rough around the edges and it could use a little cleaning up. It's now one of my least favorite beer from this brewery and it's pretty close to being an average Gose. Better luck next time guys, this one still could use some more work.

Pours a nice light gold and a fairly quickly dissapating head. A good smell of salt and coriander with a hint of funk underneath. Taste follows the nose, but the salt presence doesn't match up. Solid Gose but could be a bit more tart.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a ruddy burnt yellow color with a decent transparency about it. Fast rising carbonation hits a quickly dissipating white foamy / bubbly head. No lacing. The smell had sticky sour wheat blazing over some lemon rind bitterness. Coriander is barely there. But I’m not worried as I think Uinta just wanted it in there as an extra. The flavor takes on the same as the aroma follows mostly through on into the aftertaste with a bit more salt showing up there. Semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation hits nice and low on my tongue allowing sour to bitterness gripping my tongue appropriately. Overall, it’s a good gose that I could come back to.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Golden orange body, clear, with a smudge of a head, white, and a bit of lacing.

S - Wine barrel notes, a bit of acidity, lemon, and a mild whiff of burnt plastic.

T - The front has wood and lime, white wine, a bit of minerality, phasing into a stronger acidity, and a close that is hints bitterness.

M - Brisk open, but the close is a bit cloying, lingering on the tongue, a bit sticky.

O - This is a decent experience. The feel is a bit off, but the flavors are nice. There are better Gose out there, but this is satisfying nevertheless.

Pours a hazy orange color with a lively popping two and a half finger of initial white head, that quickly dissapeared yet left nices ticky lacing down the glass.

The smell is of salinity and bready biscuits. Maybe like saltine crackers with a faint hint of coriander.

The taste has a very large salt presence, not overpowering but large indeed. A bit tart and tangy but not a lot of sour.

Mouth is running to the lighter side but has presence at the finish. And the finish itself lends towards more of a dry and salty finish.

This is a very nice Gose that has more of a salty taste and less of a puckering sour we have found in other Gose's. I find it to be well done as it seems to balance very well with each finely balnced sip of refreshing Gose beer.

Ready Set Gose | Uinta Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head is finger thick, with lateral lacing, and an opaque medium gold body.

Smells like bright, yet mellow grains blended with conventional gose elements.

The taste does a better job blending the malts/grains with the zippy gose astringency. Damn refreshing and a clean finish. Put this one on your "try again during summer" list.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll give Ready Set Gose | Uinta Brewing Company a 4.25. Thanks to @nicholas2121 for the can.

Straw-gold clear pour with a thin head. Aroma of white bread crust and lemon zest. Taste is cracker, tart lemon, lime zest, coriander, sea salt and dough. Mildly tart with a crisp and dry finish. Hit the spot as I was looking for something light and crisp to balance my meal but otherwise it's a fairly tame and nondescript gose.

Ready Set Gose brewed by Uinta Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.00% This Gose brew pours out slight cloudy amber color with a decent white head. There is also some spotty lacing on the glass of this brew. The head to this Gose brew goes away fast, not saying that is a bad thing. In the smell you pick up on grains and malts. Really faint hops, in the smell of this gose. There is also a bit of sweetness in the smell. Now for the taste, it is tart, but sweet, you can pick up on the salt notes in this brew. I will give it this, it is different, but in a good way. I kinda like the tart, bitter sweet, saltyness of this brew. Ready Set Gose is different from most brews on the market, it has a nice balance to it. This gose is really nice to drink, and goes down smooth. There is nothing overpowering about this gose. The mouth feel of Ready Set Gose is Tart, Smooth, Clean and Refreshing. I could see me drinking this brew on a hot summer day. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5. If you are looking for something a little different , look this brew up. Uinta Brewing Company did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again.

On-tap 12/9/2016 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, citrus and light malts.

T: The taste starts out with some tart citrus flavor followed by some mild breadiness from wheat and a light malt character. Then some malt and citrus sweetness comes in and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly tart.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

This beer reminds me of a crisp lemon-lime soda, making me dub it "The Sprite of Beers". Has a nice nose taste remniscent of lemonade. The coriander and salt are present, but hinder the refreshing, light taste if anything.

Poured from 11-ounce can into a Collins glass. Appealing in appearance, dark yellow with a fluffy white head that fades to a thin ring. Just a hint of salt, not overly heavy on the spice, nice tartness and funk, a touch of bitterness, and a dry finish with a little astringence. Very refreshing and very well done.

12 ounce can, stamp on bottom says best before 12/24/16. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells mostly like bready/wheat malt, and also some salt and coriander. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some apple and tart citrus. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew overall, but it really didn't do anything for me. I prefer my goses to be saltier and have more tartness, and I thought this one was more bready/grainy than anything else. Maybe next time I need to try a fresher can.

Pours a golden yellow, slightly hazy but mostly clear, with a fluffy white head that dissipates to a small flimsy foam ring. Aromas and flavors are slightly citrusy fruity (tangerine and lime) with a hint of sea salt and coriander promised by the label. Drinkable and refreshing.

A: Slightly hazy straw color, with a very slight head.
S: Grainy malt, Light but tart fruitiness, peppery yeastiness.
T: Lots of wheat flavor, fairly grainy, Noticeable saltiness, but not heavy. Very moderate on the acidity and tartness. I can't detect the coriander.
M: Very light bodied.
O: Drinkable enough, but doesn't stand out among the wealth of goses we've been getting lately.

My own gose rating on tartness, 1 to 5, with Real Ale on the 1 and Wild Sour on the 5, this is around a 3. On saltiness, 3.5.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City goblet.

A: Very hazy and very light gold with a finger's worth of foamy white head that fades quickly. Low amount of visible carbonation after the big initial blush fades.

S: Lactic acid, husky grains, the lightest of cracker malt, some citric acidity and touch of funk and yeast.

T: Lactic tartness with mild lemon, two row and (I believe) some pilsner malts, with mild husky character. No evidence to be found of the funk that I got on the nose. Medium salinity for the style. Some biscuity yeast. It finishes dry and lightly tart with lingering savory notes.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and no alcohol to speak of.

O: Easy to drink and nothing offensive, but I think this falls significantly short. The marked husky character, the shallowness of the lactic character, and more pilsner malts than I would look for. The balance of lemony citric and salinity isn't quite right either. I wouldn't avoid it specifically but don't seek out. There are better options, even in cans, around you.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a rather modest head that fades away quickly; minimal lacing

Smell: Bready and salty, with a coriander edge

Taste: Slightly bready, at the outset, but very briny through the middle, with a spicy yeast and coriander impact on the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Quite different from most of the other Goses that are out there, this one trends in the salty direction; lacks the balancing tartness that I enjoy from other versions of the style

L: Clear, yellow with a big foamy white head that quickly dies down, but leaves some lacing along the glass.

S: Lemon soda, lemon peel and orange peel, hard lemon candy, nice savory saltiness, very faint hints of coriander and spice.

T: A nice balance of big wheat character and lemon. Creamy, doughy malts, mild graininess, with lemon candy and orange juice. The finish is only lightly tart with refreshing salty balance, leading to a crisp, dry finish with hints of grass and coriander spice.

F: Mouthfeel is mostly light, but feels closer to medium. The wheat and carbonation makes it smooth, slightly creamy.

O: A surprisingly good gose. Nice lemony characteristics and super refreshing.

Pour is a semi hazy, milky straw yellow hue with a moderate amount of lacing on the glass and a white ring of head that settles to a ring. Aroma had a subtle citrus burst with some orange peel and lemon, a Belgian like yeast profile and a sweet malt in the back end. Taste has a nice hint of citrus, spicy Belgian like yeast, sweet cracker malt and a pinch of sea salt. Very low level of sourness but still detectable. Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation, and a surprisingly velvety feel. Overall, pretty surprised the rating for this isn't over an 85+. Nothing overly complex, but a delicious easy drinker.

L: Soft yellow color, very clear. Highly bubbly, with a clean white and pretty sizable head for such a light beer. Good looking pour.

S: Off-sweet malty smelling with hints of citrus peel and floral.

T: Sour on the nose, but not too crazy. Hop flavors are sort of piney and hang around long after each sip, it's a tad too bitter for its balance. There is the characteristic dry saltiness of a gose at hand, and a lot of other stuff going on. Particularly I taste citric peel here, and I'm getting a slight almost peppery or Belgian yeast taste. I may have gotten a funky can too, because I occasionally get a sort of off tin taste which is not great.

F: Sort of thicker than expected. It looks champagne-like but drinks more like a heavy IPA in terms of the density--I assume that is due to the added salt.

Overall: This beer is very refreshing and session-like is drinkability. I do find the the complex flavors when you roll the beer around in your mouth are a bit overwhelming though, so I mostly just dump it onto the back of my pallet and drink it down quickly. It tastes pretty good, but I wouldn't say that it is my favorite! I'd certainly drink it again, but I doubt that I will buy it again.

Gold to straw yellow in color with a hazy complexion. There's a fingernail of off white head. I smell a healthy dose of sea salt and light bready malt. I'm tasting plenty of sea salt and light sourdough malt. The mouth is dry, crisp, and refreshing.
