16.9 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a sour glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden color and is topped with less than an inch of off white head that leaves minimal lacing.

The smell is tart and funky.

The taste is sour and funky. The salt is apparent through the middle. The finish is dry.

Medium and silky smooth.

This beer drinks more like a sour to me than a gose. I love it. I love the funk and sour profile.

My oh my, that has the saltiest nose I can recall - it saturates the air as soon as you pop the cap. The beer pours almost like a mead or apple juice - it's not syrupy, but it has some body and thickness to it. There isn't much head, but the carbonation is sharp and quite present.

The taste is my favorite thing about this beer. The salt is present, but is felt more in the nose than on the tongue. It tastes a bit like green apples - sour, with a little pucker and tartness, but not overwhelming.

Well done and accurate to style - quite a good beer.

16.9oz bottle courtesy of WesMantooth. No freshness date that I can see.

Poured into a shaker pint glass, this was a clear shade of pale gold, with a modest eggshell white head that was mostly gone after a couple minutes.

Salty, briny aroma, with a little bit of spiciness and some funk.

The spices are in the driver's seat, with the salt and coriander a bit sharper than in other goses I've had. According to the label, brett, sacc and lacto were all utilized here, but it seems not with a heavy hand. It's like a funk shadow is cast over the beer, if that makes any sense.

Carbonation seemed a little low. Light bodied enough that it's not a great sin, however.

Perhaps not as refreshing as some goses I've had (at 5.2% alcohol, I think it's the biggest one I've had), but it's probably more complex than any other I've had. A gose for adults would be a good way of putting it. Using brett, sac and lacto, there's a more overtly funky thing happening here than I think is generally the case with the style, which admittedly I am no expert on, except I like them. It might not be my first choice of the style on a broiling hot eastern Washington summer day, but I'd still buy it if it were available, locally. Thanks, Corey!

clean crisp and distinctive, this is a great gose. so glad these guys are around in colorado now, i have seen this one both in bottles and on tap. its a really beautifully refined example of the style, with a sharp pucker to it, fresh lemongrass and lemon qualities, a bright botanical freshness as well that i cant quite figure out the origins of, but it really spruces up the style and makes this seem new and refined and fresh to me. good saltiness, more than others, earthy and flavorful, not just brine like some. the malt base is impossibly light, just a little dry crackery wheat flavor and not much else, not even really much body from this. it finishes with clean citrusy lacto, the salt, and a white wine and tea complexion that i really like, some good acidity and a huge burst of carbonation, this is really alive, and i think its the perfect texture for these delicate but distinct flavors. this is better than most others out there, so balanced and bright. excellent sour profile, tons of character. the sour beers these guys are doing right now are fantastic!

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Beaming, shiny, and a ridiculously crystal clear body color that looks like shiny polished brass. Brass deep yellow, with light amounts of floating fast and small carbonation. Head creation is a solid and even three fingers, mixing a bright white and faint soapy head. Some minor retention, as it simply and slowly settles to a thin but good solid puck.

Real good solid aroma. Tart hints of lacto that seem to hint at an almost sour cherry direction, mixing with a good salty and briny aroma. Great sensing wheat and chewy notes, like a big piece of chunky bread. Excellent solid gose nose, with faint herbal coriander hints to match.

Palate makes a real nice match. Faint tart qualities on first sip, but lots of mineral and earthy like flavors. Chewy but lots of mineral mouthfeel cut through much of the wheat malt quality and density. Excellent bready bakery finish and dough, with touches of rock salt and salinity. A bit of carbonated and gaseous flavors make a slight appearance unfortunately but don't ruin the tasting experience. Good touching fruit characters that range from lemon to cherry in a simple tartness.

A solid real flavorful gose.

L: Poured from a bottle to a cylinder glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of foamy / fizzy head that quickly dissipated. Average lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of wheat, sea salt, coriander, and some yeast.

T: Tasted of a fair shot of sea salt, a lot of wheat, some yeast (more than expected for this style), a good deal of coriander, light fruit (lemons, in particular), and a light biscuity quality. An interesting flavor with the inclusion of the yeast. Didn't like it at first, but it grew on me. Sweet and light.

F: A highly carbonated beer with a zesty finish. Light-bodied.

O: I won't say that this is my favorite gose, but it is very likable. Definitely drinkable.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Crystal clear, bright light gold - until the last dregs of the bottle poured in, then becomes modestly cloudy. Forms a finger's worth of white fluffy head that fades quickly, with lots of visible carbonation. Very nice-looking.

S: Lactic acid, citric tart lemons, and cracker malts. A modest funkiness. Clean and nice aroma, though nothing mouth-watering.

T: Lactic tartness, cracker malts, and sea salt. Lemons and lemon zest, with mild pilsner maltiness in the middle. A very mild but present Lactobacillus funk suggests that this wasn’t just a lactic acid addition - but the funk isn't a large part of the flavors. More tart salinity at the swallow.

M: A light body, with good carbonation sensation. Very low alcohol presence.

O: Ummm…this was fine. It straddles the middle of the road for style. As long as you keep your expectations tempered, this won’t offend anyone. But that likely its biggest weakness as well - just not memorable.

500ml bottle, undated, poured into a 14oz snifter glass. Enjoyed on 5.19.17, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a hazy pale golden color, straw hues with a light fizzy white head, no retention and no lace. The aroma is okay, tart, funky, wheaty, with lemon citrus and pleasant sea salt, a bit of coriander spice and orange peel. The flavors are similar, tart and funky, a bit of vinegar, soft wheat and pale grain, salty brine, light citrus and spicy coriander with tangy orange peel at the finish. The mouthfeel is fine, crisp, tart, dry, lots of lively carbonation with a lighter body that finishes a bit sharply.

Verdict: A decent Gose from Jackie O's, a bit sour for me, a touch too much vinegar but still a pretty refreshing beer. The finish also feels a bit sharper than need be, but other than some rough edges, a worthy beer.
