Pours a very slight cloudy yellow with a one inch fluffy white head that settles quickly to a quarter inch and leaves little lacing. Smells of melon,sour and the ocean. Tastes of watermelon, sea salt, acidic/sour elements most notably lemon. Light bodied, highly carbonated, minimal bitterness. Tart and refreshing.

It’s a nice tart gose that I think would be much improved with a more Briney (salty) taste.

Effervescent, fluffy head quickly dissipates to nothing. Still quite carbonated in this slightly hazy, pale golden gose. Definitely pick up some watermelon and mustiness from the gose-style fermentation. Taste is sour with a good punch of watermelon. Quite easy drinking and refreshing for a hot summer day.

I had this in my fridge for months kinda waiting for the right time to try it. Big bottle didn’t want to drink it all buy myself especially if it sucked, which I am happy to say it didn’t. Far from it. Very light and a great brew to drink on a hot day here in Fl. I would absolutely buy it again and just drink it sooner.

L - 1/2 finger bright white head atop a translucent yellow body.

S - melon, stone fruit, sugar.

T - melons on melons. Medium salinity, no bitterness, low sweetness, no booziness.

F - light body, with high carb.

O - would not drink this during the winter, but so refreshing on a warm day.
