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.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass from a growler filled at Westbrook.

A- Pours a hazy dark golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains decently before becoming a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of surface foam. No lacing.

S- Smells like the Gose with an extra citrusy kick reminding one of mandarin orange.

T- Tastes like the Gose but the yuzu really drives home the citrus flavors bringing more of a grapefuit characteristic to the table. There's still that weak wheat aftertaste that I get out of the original Gose but the yuzu does a good job of covering that up mostly. Incredibly drinkable.

M- Just the right amount of tartness with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Definitely an improvement over the original since I like a bit more sweetness in my beers. Honestly, this is the only incarnation of a Gose I truly enjoy.
