4.12/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

16 oz can, dated 10/24/19, into Carpe Brew Em snifter.

A super juicy hazy creamy blonde pale body with a tall creamy cap of 2 fingers, receding to 1, and then to 1/2. Slight lace left up the sides.

Aroma is vinegar, hay, slight musty bathroom, slight cider, and cinnamon.

Flavor....wow. It's as if I took a bite of rhubarb apple pie. I can even taste the crust. Cinnamon and vanilla (ice cream) are most prevalent, but the apples and vinegar are present as well. Very tasty. Not much else to comment on.

Feel is juicy and biting, and yet this beer goes down so quickly. Nice big acidic finish.

Overall - a big, fruity, juicy bomb of apple pie and ice cream that is sure to please every beer drinker. Solid stuff, although I still like the Strawberry Rhubarb variant better.

Price paid : $4.99 / can
Would buy again : Yes

3.91/5  rDev -6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Pours muddy. Looks more like pulpy orange juice than a gose. Nose is lemon and green apple tartness with a sugary backbone. Pleasant but rather mellow. Beer opens cinnamon, graham cracker and tart apple and lemon. Some brown sugar in the back and at the finish with a pastry-like sweetness. I definitely get where the apple pie is coming from. Body is light with moderate to ample carbonation. Foamy on the palate and puckering and crisp going down. Very drinkable.

I didn't know what to think of this given the name but its very easy to drink and pretty delicious. Apple pie flavor profile comes through pretty clearly.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy super pale hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Big aromas of apple cider and pie crust. Big creamy wheat as well, light tartness, good salinity. Bright apple as well, quite pleasant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with enormous sweet and tart apples, good apple cider and cooked apples, great pie crust, lovely cinnamon and vanilla. Great pie crust notes, creamy wheat, light salinity. Quite pleasant and delivers what it promises.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, not really flemmy.

O - Overall this was a rather solid gose with phenomenal apple pie notes. Exquisite.

THanks to rudzud
light fizzy head, no retention, very pale pear flesh color

NOse is mostly gose, lots of raw dough wheat, with a tart lacto funk like, little yoghurt funk, with some apple cider like and funk, maybe even pear cider like, hint of salt I think

Taste is loads of apple pie, just raw apple pie out front, baked apple out front, with a little apple and pear cider, with nice baked oats and wheat doughy pie crust, a little lacto funk bringing a little apple skin, granny smith sweet and tart notes, a touch of salt in the background, dry bready crust finish and tart without being flemmy

Mouth is med to fuller bod, a little creamy oats and pie crust and lacto, light tartness but not flemmy

Overall wow, the taste really is apple pie, the baked apples and oat crusted pie crust, so nice, with a good base gose and tart lacto funk, apple cider, hint of salt, just really well done
