Notes / Commercial Description:
Flamingose is a tart and salty German style Gose beer made with pineapple and pays tribute to Utah's own "Pink Floyd" the Flamingo. If your not familiar with Floyd, he was a Chilean Flamingo that freed himself from his home at SLC's Tracey Aviary in 1990. Floyd took up residence at the Great Salt Lake immediately and somehow thrived. He's called the briny lake home ever since. Floyd's current whereabouts are unknown.

Gold in color with a very hazy complexion. There's a quarter inch of frothy dishwater white on top. Coriander leads the nose with pineapple a close second. The sea salt comes in a distant third. The taste is a remarkable balance of sea salt, pineapple, and coriander. I'm surprised at how well this all comes together. The mouth is thick and salient.

Pours hazy, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is grain, light hops, pineapple--juice and pulp. Light bodied, slightly sweet, and medium light salt. Makes for a nice afternoon sipper. Really nicely done.

22 oz bottle poured into snifter best before date of 10/28/16

A: Big pillowy white creamy looking head. Body is a murky dense brownish gold color.

S: Lots of wheat, coriander, and saline qualities, with just pinches of pineapple the wheat give it an almost pineapple cake smell.

T: Nice light saltiness, deep wheat, and hints of pineapple.

M: Light, crisp, clean, a touch creamy as well.

O: This is a very nice gose nice levels of saltiness balanced by very nice wheat and light traces of pineapple. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

L: Cloudy gold, with some visible bubbles, and a fat, creamy white head with shockingly long retention and lacing for a gose.

S: Diluted pineapple juice, orange juice, wheat and a heavy dash of coriander, and a touch of salt.

T: Salty upfront, which greases the palate. In the middle, tons of pineapple and orange juice, with hints of lemon. Finishes lightly dry and spicy with the coriander and the return of salt. Not super tart, but very juicy.

F: Medium to medium-light, but almost slightly creamy and well carbonated.

O: I wish it were a little more tart and the aroma exploded a little more, but overall, this is very tasty gose. Juicy and thirst-quenching. I highly recommend it!

Straw yellow with some whisps of lazy lacing on the surface.

Some hay and funk on the nose, with the pineapple.

It tastes like a pineapple IPA combined with toothpaste. It doesn't work for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a tumbler glass.

Look: The cloudiest, densest muted straw yellow I have ever seen. A thick white head that retains well with patches and random squiggly lines of lacing.

Aroma: Wheat, malts, pineapple juice, salt.

Taste: Really salty up front with sweet pineapple juice and tanginess following. Light coriander notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light in body.

Overall: Liked the idea, kind of funky and not sure that pineapple and salt make the best friends.
