Pours from can into tall glass a golden amber with minimal head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of saltiness and watermelon from flesh to rind. True to a gose this is immediately tart with a saltiness that hits the palate followed by clean refreshing notes of melon. It’s distinct carbonation and tartness makes this a great choice for summer enjoyment. Can see myself selecting this again given the opportunity.

12 oz. can poured into a tulip glass.

L---Slightly hazy. Light golden color. Nice white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. Carbonation was bubbling up from the bottom of the glass.

S---Smells sour, like a proper gose. Watermelon is definitely present. Some brine/saltiness in the background.

T---Juicy, like a watermelon. Saltiness shows up more in the taste than nose. A bit of sour funkiness.

F---Quenching. Both tart and juicy.

O---Tried this one on the recommendation of the beer guy at my local Wegmans. It was worth it. Nice beer. I can really see this one as a go to in the summer.

Fantastic take on watermelon beer. Poured at the brewery into a 16oz glass. Small head, but great watermelon taste that lands farther on the sweet side of the spectrum than sour. It's got a great, refreshingly light feel to it too. Definitely a must-get for watermelon beers.

Best before date of 11/24/17

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden orange in color with a white, finger width head that displays sub-par retention, resulting in a mostly barren surface and a razor thin ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Aroma is fair with light watermelon being the most prominent aspect. A bit of wheat. Faint spice and salinity.

Taste - Follows the nose, but the flavor is more assertive. Tart watermelon and a salty bite upfront and throughout. Hints of lime creep in mid-taste and into the finish, leaving a watermelon, lime and salty finish. Simple but refreshing and delicious.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with light carbonation. Slick, easy drinker. Relies on the tartness of the flavor to keep the brew lively.

Overall - It's not the best gose I've had, but it's probably the best watermelon infused brew I've had to date. Wish I'd grabbed a sixer rather than two cans.

Can to snifter....right after the Westbrook Gose and Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose.

LOOK: Yellow, no head. Touch of haziness, but mostly clear.
AROMA: Big Watermelon and some wheat.
TASTE: watermelon, mineral, a little salty in the finish.
FEEL: pretty flat. touch of that sour bite, but otherwise dead.

OK, lots of watermelon flavor but lacking elsewhere. nothing special.

Wow, a Gose / sour beer I actually like! Probably because this one isn't all that tart - a good thing in my opinion. You definitely get lots of juicy, watermelon up front. I feel kind of silly for waiting til the end of summer to finally try this beer.
