Thanks to CanConPhilly for this one, from NBS BIF #9. 16oz can poured into 14oz teku. poured a lightly hazy pale yellow color with about an inch of white head that had low retention and good lacing.

The aroma was light grain, gentle hops, and low salt. Same on the tongue. the body was the typical light and crisp of the style, with a semi-dry finish. Drinkability was fine, the beer went down easily enough. Overall, a pretty typical example of the style. Want to try your first? This would be a good introduction.

L - 1.5 finger dense offwhite head atop a translucent yellow body.

S - salt, brown sugar, lime.

T - follows the nose. Sea salt and lime. A little bit of minerality, but it fades. Quite tart. Low bitterness. Low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium-light body with appropriate carb.

O - very tasty. Would be even better on a warm day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours quite hazy and amber colored with a one inch head; decent retention and multiple strands of lace hang around

Smell: Lactic green apple and lemon tones with a salty edge

Taste: Lactic green apple and lemon forward; the salty aspect builds through the middle and is powerful, in the finish; the tart flavors are bold, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat puckery

Overall: Approaching two years old so this beer may not be what it was when brewed; still, I thought it suffered from a lack of drinkability

Thanks, ArtAttackEd, for the opportunity

Haters' Tears pours a clear golden color, highly effervescent, with a huge yellow-tinted white head.

There's a strong aroma with barnyard funk and lemony sourness most prevalent. The lemon sourness and saltiness come on strong in the taste, with a touch of bready malt sweetness and some sour apple behind. It's light bodied with a very slightly sticky mouthfeel.

I'm a big fan of this brewery, and this brew's another solid one.

16 oz can poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Golden blonde with a head that fizzles out quickly. Good clarity with light carbonation.

Lemon, Lacto, granny smith apple, mineral water, and a slight funk.

A lemony Lacto sourness. Granny smith apple. Tangy wheat with a light funk. Big amounts of mineral water and fairly salt forward. Finishes with caramel and a bready maltiness with just a touch of cinnamon.

Light bodied, crisp, and tart.

This is a really nice Gose. More mineral water character than most with a moderate sourness.
