Slight pinkish orange color. White head with lace.

The line and sea salt show the most. Fairly citrusy and fruity. Sour and acidic with lemon juice. Grapefruit juice in the finish.

Solid gose. Fun to try.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip

S- fruity mix of blackberry and lime up front, with undertones of earthy hay, toasted wheat, minerals & light floral notes

T- tart blackberry fruity notes up front are immediately followed by notes of lime zest. Mid-palate gives a mineral saltiness, the finish gives some toasted wheat and lingers of light floral notes

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a bone dry tart finish

O- tart, fruity and highly drinkable

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Big bright red and slightly pink to purple shining body color. Lots of nice rising carbonation with just a hint of pink to be seen. Bright pink head of three fingers with soapy retention. A bit of staying power with bath foam like quality and a bit of pill lacing. Very nice looking brew.

Very nice fruited nose. Big hits of berried fruit quality that go all over from raspberry to blackberry and so on. A very noticeable citrus zest and oily bitterness comes off as well with excellent brine salty character. Rimmed like salt and lime tequila aromas really seem to excel here and also become more obvious. Very neat creation so far.

Exciting and diverse palate. Light and simple bodied but luckily doesn't get too wet, but lacks a bit of chewy depth. Still excellent flavors pop on first sip. Salt and pepper mid palate with tangy fruit that has a nice sour kick added by the lacto. Lime and smoke aftertaste that is really made to pop with a hint of excellent tart refreshing feeling.

A real wild gose indeed, and completely out of left field, yet delicious.

A: The beer is slightly hazy reddish purple in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high pink colored head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and some specks of bubbles running down the sides.
S: Light aromas of blackberries and lime are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of agave and sour lime along with some saltiness and hints of hibiscus.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting variation of the style that is very easy to drink. I was surprised not to get any blackberry flavors in the taste despite the purplish color.

Straight pour from a pry-off 22oz bottle to an oversized wineglass (JK stemware). No bottling or freshness information is present, from what I can tell. This was purchased maybe three weeks ago, but has been kept in dark and relatively cool places since then, as well as refrigerated for over 24hrs prior to drinking. Seemed to be a recent arrival when I saw it in the cooler at one of my local beer stores.

Appearance (5.0): This is unbelievably beautiful. The body pours out a hazy, dark fuchsia color, like raspberry compote, capped by a fluffy, rocky, slightly lavender-gray head that eagerly rises three-plus fingers above the surface. And, it sticks around for a long time, given the style, leaving thin, delicate clumps of fat suds all around the glass.

Smell (4.25): This smells a lot like the standard Gose Gone Wild, at first, with its lactic acid and phenolic brett playing off of each other with subtlety. Where it differs is, not surprisingly, in the adjuncts: the blackberry has resolved to a tannic character, while the hibiscus leaves just its wet, juicy, floral character; there’s some fruit here, too, but it’s unclear where the blackberry and hibiscus start and end. Meanwhile, the smoked agave contributes a very slight smokiness and a nice, earthy note that blurs into the brett. There’s a lot going on here, but it’s never overwhelming or even particularly confusing—just, complex and layered. As it warms up, it really moves toward its adjuncts and brett, rather than toward its gose roots. Hey, I’m not complaining.

Taste (4.0): Jesus, this is sour—and bretty, actually. Sure, the lactic acid and dry, floury wheat of the gose style set you up for a puckering shot, but this beer also delivers tart lime, tannic blackberry juice, and dry, tannic and tart hibiscus tea right from the start. Holy moly. The smoked agave again blends in with the earthy, phenolic brett, which leaves a peppery and somewhat unpleasant, medicinal impression on the back end of the palate. That said, the tannic, lactic, and citric acid present in this beer distract from the brett phenols and highlight the more typical characteristics of the style: a tart, sour drink with a soft, light, grainy body and somewhat briny finish. The salt, of course, is definitely there, but it’s easy to overlook amidst everything else going on here. Still, it does add a briny layer that shows up as the various acidic aspects of the beer resolve toward the mid-palate and the end of the drink. Like the nose, this is a complicated beer, but I like most of what’s going on.

Mouthfeel (4.5): The carbonation here is full, soft, and lush, foaming readily and atomizing the already just-south-of-medium-weight body. I think the fruitiness of the blackberry and hibiscus help make the body feel fuller and slicker, while the tannic, citric, and lactic acids, along with phenolic brett and briny sea salt, really dry out the deceptively lean body. This is exceedingly easy to drink, and while it allows and even encourages you to take the next sip sooner rather than later, there’s enough depth in the feel that you don’t mind lingering.

Overall (4.25): This beer is just as complicated as its list of ingredients would suggest, though you could easily pound it when it’s ice-cold and you just want some refreshment. I think it’s recognizeable as a gose, and fortunately its list of adjuncts don’t add up to give the impression of a German sour with fruit syrup in it. My only beef with this beer is the brett leaves just a little too much “dirty” phenolic character, and the smoked agave is almost lost. That said, most of the time these things still just blend in nicely and don’t distract from all the goodness that’s going on. Now I’m really curious to try to the Phuket version! Recommended definitely for the adventurous, and more broadly for sour fans.

I picked up a bottle of Stillwater's Gose Gone Will World Tour- Tijuana for $2.69 at The Lager Mill. The description of thise beer caught my attention and I'm curious to see how this one turns out, so lets see how it goes. 2017 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a teku.

A- The label looks nice, it goes with the name and it's just a little eye catching. It poured an amber red color that took on a pink hue when held to the light and it had a fingers worth of slightly bubbly off pink head that died down to a thin ring that eventually faded away and it left just a little bit of spotty lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, the pink color makes it stick out.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of sweetness with a little bit of funky yeast being the first to show up and just imparts a general funky aroma that's a little on the lighter side. Up next comes the fruits with the blackberries being a little noticeable, but it mainly has just a generic fruity aroma and that goes into the hibiscus which seems to be the aspect that sticks out the most about the aroma. Up next comes a little bit of a salty aroma followed by just a slight bit of smokey agave which is a little weird. This beer has a pretty nice aroma, there a lot going and they work well together.

T- The taste seems to be a little similar to the aroma and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with the yeast still being the first to show up and it imparts all the same aspects and it goes right into the fruits which still impart a generic fruity flavors, but this time the blackberries show up more and are noticeable along with a little lime. Up next comes hibiscus which is noticeable and it goes into the malts which impart some grainy, bready, pale malt and sweet malt like flavors. On the finis there's a medium amount of sourness with some saltiness and the sourness lingers a little with some lemon, lime, raspberry and malty flavors. This is a pretty nice tasting beer, it's unique and the flavors work well together.

M- Fairly smooth, a little mouth puckering, a little salty, a little refreshing, medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a pretty nice beer and it's a solid example of the style, it had pretty much all the aspects that I expect from a Gose, but in this one all the extra ingredients made it stand out and be a little more complex than your average gose. This beer had ok drinkability, I think one would be a good amount for me. What I like the most about this beer is the complexity and how unique it is, to me those are the highlights of this beer. What I like the least about this beer is that I wish the agave showed up more in the taste. I would buy this beer again when looking for a solid and unique gose and i would recommend it to anyone looking for the same. All in all I liked this beer and it turned out to be a little better than I was expecting, it had some nice complexity without any one flavor being too overpowering. It's not a favorite Stillwater beer and it's a solid example of the style. Nice job guys, this is a tasty unique Gose, keep up the hard work.

Oh, man, I am not a huge fan of tarts & sours & I do not generally hunt down Goses, but when I had the Phuket (Thailand) version, I immediately wanted to score a bottle of TJ. I do not care what the commercial description may read, I expect this to taste of leaded gasoline, donkey shows, jai alai & TJ funnies. Anything less will not be evocative of the TJ that I knew as a US Navy sailor.

From the bottle: "Sour Wheat Ale brewed with blackberries, hibiscus, lime, smoked agave and Mayan sea salt."

Knowing that it is, at base a Wheat Ale, plus it has a number of adjuncts, I felt secure in agitating the beer while still in the bottle. I then Pop!ped the cap and gave it an aggro pour, just to ensure that everything was in suspension. My incredulity as it came forth with a pinkish hue was immeasurable. Wow! It billowed outward, forming better than a finger of foamy, fizzy, pink head that slowly settled into wisps. Color was a hazy reddish-pink (SRM = N/A). Nose was heavy with the salt, but interestingly enough, accompanied by both a smokiness & a tart fruitiness, either blackberry or raspberry. What?!? The taste was very tart and the fruitiness was now easily identifiable as blackberry. I really got a kick out of the intermingling of the lime, salt & smokiness, like some sort of New Age margarita. I was not getting much in the way of hibiscus, but I was okay with that since I am not a huge fan of its flavor. What Gose on with this beer?!? The tartness, combined with the saltiness, was causing my lips to pucker uncontrollably. I could not help but giggle like a little girl about this one. It was truly wild & a really interesting trip. Finish was dry, salty & tart. What more could you ask for? What won't they think of next?

Solid Gose, although the detectability factor of the various ingredients isn't high (in other words, don't expect to be able to parse out the lime, blackberries, hibiscus, etc.)
