12 oz. can:

Pours hazy yellow with a thin wispy head. Little lacing.

The smell is of sour/tart passion fruit.

The taste is of passion fruit (wit a hint of cucumber?). Some salt mixes in with the mild sour bite. Tart/sour lingers through the aftertaste.

It has a spritzy, light body.

An interesting brew. Has a traditional gose character with a twist of passion fruit that works well.

From tasting notes 10/31/18
Had on-tap at Marble Brewery in Albuquerque, NM

Appearance - Served up in a tulip/teku style glass, lightly hazy yellowish in color with a thin, broken layer of suds on the surface. Decent lacing with some broken lines and small spotting.

Smell - Passionfruit is prominent on the nose, along with tartness with a hint of salinity.

Taste - Follows the nose. Good amount of natural passionfruit flavor along with fair tartness upfront and throughout. Moderate salinity comes through mid-taste and helps to balance the tartness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with lightly tingly carbonation. Slick, easy drinker before a lightly dry finish.

Overall - Really nice gose. The passionfruit really shines here.

Can from The Beermongers.

A hazy straw yellow that falls off to a ring leaving little lacing, this looks OK. The nose is loaded with passionfruit, a raw wheat note, a little coriander and a touch of salt. This really lives up to its name. The palate opens bright and fruity with a sharp, pulpy fruity and fragrant passionfruit note, exceedingly flavorful, to the point where it masks the base beer. There's a mild coriander note, a little bit of wheat and a touch of salt. Drying and fruity on the finish, this beer is light in body and highly carbonated. Crisp and refreshing.

4.33/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours hazy and goldenstraw colored, the head rising to a finger; excellent lacing, with a wall of legs streaming down

Smell: Lactic passion fruit and wheat bread tones

Taste: Lactic passion fruit tones forward with the tart aspects complemented by hints of fruity sweetness; the salt appears, after the swallow, but is just discernible without dominating

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I seem to be finding fruited goses all over the country these days and this is in the top tier, if not the best

Thanks, M_chav, for the opportunity

if there is one fruit that seems perfectly suited for a gose style, it is without a doubt the passion fruit. the tartness of the natural fruit often resonates well with the lactic sourness, the two never seem to be far apart, and the sweetness that is here also offsets any over developed sour profile. similarly, the fruit can be intense at times, can serve to cover up sloppy souring, but in a well made beer such as this, it can serve to accentuate the good. in this case the salt and the tang of the lacto are clean, bright, and mineral rich, and the passion fruit highlights all of that, i get the jelly insides of the fruit, i even think i get the crunchy seeds, like, this is about as natural as passion fruit can be in beer, and its to be commended as such! the salt dries out the fruity sweetness in the finish, and the acid makes my palate water for another sip. its complex for a simple style, but drinks wonderfully easy and refreshing. this stands as one of the better fruited gose types i have had this year! the passion fruit is very natural and robust in here. i like this a lot!
