16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/10/2018. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/sour lemon, lime, mandarin orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, green apple, white wine, citrus peel/rind, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of peppercorn, pine, lacto/musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, citrus/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, mandarin orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, green apple, white wine, citrus peel/rind, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of peppercorn, pine, lacto/musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate lactic tartness; pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy bitterness; and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour lemon, lime, mandarin orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, green apple, white wine, citrus peel/rind, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, peppercorn, pine, light lacto/musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, citrus/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness and bitter/spiciness balance, with no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tart/bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic/sticky, and lightly saline balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is an outstanding gose! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, citrus/tropical hops, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly acidic/bitter/spicy/drying finish. Not overly lactic or salty. Probably Mosaic/Galaxy. Awesome balance of juicy/fairly dank/earthy hops and Brett/Lacto complexity; with a nice pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

I'm sure Gose purists would scoff at this beer but as far as a tasty beverage this is awesome. It's basically exactly what it says - tart, wheaty, and very hoppy. I don't really get the salinity of a gose but maybe it's because this thing is so hoppy. Stillwater is great at appropriately hopping beer styles that are typically not hoppy and this is no exception. The hops accent the tart fruitiness and do not overpower. yb

16 oz can poured into nonic pint canned on 6/27/17.

A: Murky tan yellow body with a tiny small white bubbly head.

S: Light metallic trace and then some grapefruit and pineapple hops

T: Light tartness a little bit of peach, apricot, grapefruit, and honey. Slight bits of wheat and salinity present themselves on the finish.

M: A little heavier than you would expect a goose to be.

O: It's a nice dry hopped beer the hops present themselves well it isn't that great of a gose though. reminds me a little of the Tool Sur series.
