A: Lots of Coriander, which provides huge lemon aroma upfront, followed by some sourness; quite bright.

A: Yellow color that’s quite hazy with strong head retention.

T: Lots of lemon, slightly sweet and quite tart upfront; quite sour not overpowering – but at the same time not restrained with a touch of saltiness detected.

M: Light bodied with high carbonation; sourer than you’d expect from a gose; very refreshing, quite attenuated. No alcohol noticeable.

O: Refreshing and delicious. While sourer than most traditional gose, Cascade’s take is still quite attenuated. My only real knock is on the price. While I support Cascade charging a premium for sours, this particular beer style is rather inexpensive to make and doesn’t require any adjuncts that are overly expensive.

The beer comes in a hazy straw yellow color.

The aroma has tons of tartness. Lemon peel, lemon juice, a bit of spice.

The flavor follows with that huge lemony tartness in the front. There's then some gentle wheat and bready malt. Finish hits of a drying salt and a fresh spiciness from the corainder added. Barrel character adds some complexity to this beer as well.

Quite tart, compared to Westbrook's take on the style. Personally prefer this.

Pours hazy yellow with a finger thick head. Aroma is tart citrus with lemon peel and orange, as well as some salty spiciness. Normal body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sour with tart fruity lemon and lemon peel, as well as salt. Finishes of with a long tarty fruitiness ending with notes of sweetly lemon drops
