I've wanted to try this for a while now. Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a wine glass this beer yields a straw color and hazy beer underneath a quickly dissolving white crown. The crown went from about a finger width to audibly fizzing down to nothing within one minute. The smell is huge, ripe and refreshing lime! Almost burns the nose from the tanginess. The taste brings a puckering acidic and tangy lime and slowly and slightly turns into a tamed sweetness that is fighting to get through the puckering sour. I love the sour aspect of this beer and what they did with the lime but I do expect more sweetness when I hear key lime pie. Overall, it's crisp and refreshing while providing a puckering sourness and a huge lime.

12oz canned 5/21/18 (43 days ago) poured into a stemless wine glass at fridge temp 4% ABV. The beer pours slightly hazy in a color close to grapefruit juice. The head is off white and disappears quickly leaving only a few small bubbles. The aroma is sour and citrusy. The taste is sour at first, transitioning to a lightly salty key lime flavor. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, good. I'm not a big fan of the style, but had to try this while I was in SC.

12oz can courtesy of Dragginballs76. My first from Westbrook or South Carolina. Canned April 5, 2018.

Poured into a White Bluffs shaker pint glass, this was a hazy, honeyish color. Initially, there was a decent sized off white head, but it dropped quickly, although a thin foam collar remained.

Aroma not unlike a citrus soda, although with less sweetness.

Sweetly citrusy up front, but with a balancing tartness keeping it from being cloying and insipid. I swear there's a bit of graham cracker flavor midway through; I suppose that's the pie's crust! Dry and crisp at the swallow. Salinity is limited to balancing out the sweetness and is otherwise more unobtrusive than in some other goses I have had. It does linger on the tongue a little bit afterwards.

Fairly light bodied, with a crisp, dry mouthfeel that is both quenching and thirst inducing at the same time.

Really enjoyed this. Goses are one of my favorite warm weather beers, although this is being consumed on a cooler than average late morning this July 1. I could drink this all day. Thanks, Michael!

Pours a hazy gold color with a decently retained half inch white head that left little lacing. Smells like lime juice with a hint of sweetness. Tastes of lime, lime zest, lactose sweetness, salt, crackers and moderately sour . Light bodied, medium carbonation, tart, sour and refreshing. Pairs great with Mexican food.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Cycle Brewing goblet.

A: Quite hazy light gold, with good carbonation and a half-finger of white head that lasts pretty well.

S: Key lime juice and lactic tart. Citric acid that makes the mouth water a bit even smelling it, plus cracker and a mild wheat grain to the malt. Not husky almost at all though. A bit of saltiness which, with the citric acid, starts to remind you of a margarita but not in a bad way. A nice appealing aroma, though perhaps not overly complex. Not much if anything in the way of funk.

T: Key limes and sour lemons, lactic tart and citric acid. The salinity is noticeable – more than some in style – but not overdone and balanced by the citrus flavors. Cracker and wheat malts again. More heavily tart but not burning lime at the swallow and into the hang, eventually leaving just a lingering salt on the tongue and lips.

M: A light body. A good amount of carbonation sensation but less than some in style, and less than I expected based on the appearance. Low alcohol, but again more than some in style.

O: Well – it’s certainly an American take on the style. Ratchet everything up to 11 and run with it. But the sour isn’t quite overdone, though it toes the line for the style. The salinity is balanced by the fruit. No husk in the malt flavors. I’ll quibble with the name – it definitely tastes like a key lime. But there’s nothing “pie” about it – nothing particularly to approximate crust or meringue or whipped cream (depending on your preference). I think it’s probably a better beer for eschewing these things – I sure didn’t care for Funky Buddha’s lemon meringue disaster. But I think they should have left “Pie” out of the name, and just said key lime gose. Very enjoyable, and would be a great one to have on the beach.

L: Cloudy, almost opaque gold with a small foamy white head. Medium-poor retention. A thin ring remains, but leaves no lacing.

S: Bright lime zest, limeade powder, lemon peel, lime candy, cracker, a faint salinity.

T: Limeade, fresh lime zest, lemon zest, key lime pie yogurt, cracker, light saltiness. Medium-light acidity, moderate sourness. Crisp.

F: Light, but not watery. Well carbonated. Super refreshing.

O: A delicious and tasty gose. I love it.

Pours a very hazy golden orange with a medium white head that goes away quickly. Has a light lemon lime smell. Taste is super sour very tart lemon taste. Easy to picker up on this one.
