Got in a BIF from Dragginballs76. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/11/2018. Pours moderately hazy deep golden/yellow color, with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/sour lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, sea salt, coriander, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, yuzu, salt, coriander, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, sea salt, coriander, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness; light wheat tang, and coriander spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, sea salt, coriander, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, yuzu, salt, coriander, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with and awesome malt/tartness balance; with no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic, and lightly saline/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is an outstanding fruited gose. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, yuzu, salt, coriander, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp/clean to drink with the mellowly acidic/drying finish. Not overly lactic or salty. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Awesome balance of vibrant yuzu, Lacto complexity, and pale/wheat malts against acidity; with just the right amount of salt/coriander spice. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

The appearance has a hazy somewhat golden/orange colored body with a half fingered white foamy head that dies within several minutes. The smell has a strong tart/sour aromas coming out with a decent lemon/orange. The taste has a strong bitter lemon up front to combine with a sour, tart, somewhat saltiness (and that what’s saves it). As it all combines for a decent salty somewhat tart/sour refreshing aftertaste. There is no finish. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium and comes across somewhat sessionable. Carbonation seems good for the style and for me as its not too harsh. Overall, this is a very good Gose that I would have again.

Pour is golden yellow with lots of tight white head. Nose has a fairly bright citrus, light salt, faint wheat, white pepper. Flavor has a lot of juice and citrus to it, gets a little oily from the juice, moderate acidity, lighter body, assertive carb.
