Light golden body with a little haze. Crisp mouthfeel with medium carbonation. The taste is a wonderful, tart, very lightly sweet, slightly salt flavor. Incredibly drinkable, especially in the summer months. I love this beer.

She pours a hazy golden yellow color and leaves the same colored body with a one a half finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute, some light ringy lacing clings just a little bit. The smell has some lemon, light wheat, and coriander combined and coming through in a sour and somewhat tart sort of way. The taste was mainly sour and tart lemon, backed up nicely by the wheat and coriander, however, the salt adds some nice flavoring that complements nicely. She has a sour lemon aftertaste with no finish. On the palate, she sits light and comes across fairly sessionable. Carbonation seems to be fairly harsh, but nothing that seems to be bad. Overall, very nicely done Gose.

Drink this beer from a can. Found it at my local Harry Teeter and also found more at World Market. It's a beer that calls for Sour and Salty Wheat beer. I had Gose beers before and overall this is a well balanced flavors beer. Overall the best Sour beer I ever had. Glad I found this beer. It would not be disappointed if you like sour beers.

It has a light blonde body and smells like a wheat ale something like a blue moon but it tastes way better than a blue moon. So far the best sour beer I ever had. It comes in a 6 pack only and a little bit pricy but every penny it's worth the money.

If you like sour beers or want to try one, then I highly recommend this beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden color with a small white head. The aroma is salty citrus and coriander. The taste is slightly sour citrus with a salty finish.

Pours a crystal clear gold color. No cloudiness whatsoever. Thick frothy white head dissipates steadily leaving a thin layer of bubbly foam that disintegrates into a thin ring of foam along the outside.

Smell is a touch sweet and fruity. Strong salt notes along with some sour notes.

Taste follows the nose with an initial blend of salt, sour, and sweet fruity notes giving way to a strong wheat backbone. Dry finish, lingering sourness on the tongue. Pretty true to style and well crafted.

Feel is light and tart, surprisingly its actually quite refreshing. Slight puckering sensation is triggered.

Overall one of the better stateside brewed examples of the style. Well done.

Production date 6 February 17; decanted into a tulip pint glass.
A: A cloudy straw-yellow color, with little head (mostly rim) and some legs.
S: Sea-salt, pear, and coriander predominate.
T: Again, strong salt taste, like a replacement fluid, but sour where mango and coriander predominate, and undetectable malt flavor and hops evident only in the bitterness.
M: Full bodied, solid effervescence in the mouth.
O: A strong example of the style
