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

A hazy golden pale yellow beer and a good amount of carbonation bubbles. A two-finger head with okay retention. The white head is creamy and foamy with a touch of lacing on the glass.
Coriander, lemon, bready, yeasty, grassy, vinegar, caramel, sea air, and grassy.
Sea Salt, lemon, coriander, herbal, grassy, lemon, acidic, crackers, sour dough, and yeast flavors in the beer.
High carbonation, light body, sourness (not astringent), medium plus finish.
This is one of the best gose I have had so far. It has a wonderful flavor, well balanced and seriously wished I had a 12 pack.

L- Straw colored/hazy appearance with a fizzy half finger head that quickly dissipates to a lacy head coming forth. Little to no carbonation visible.
S- Sweet, sour, salty, salt watery? A tart aroma tickles my nose when I inhale. The wheat is also present. Smells awesome, very sophisticated!
T- Very tart/sour right off the bat, great balance of salty-ness. Simple, yet great memorable flavor. Also very wheaty, this beer's flavor follows the nose.
F- Thin, surprisingly fizzy, fresh and crisp.
O- Powerful yet simple. Not complex because it doesn't need to be. This beer pays homage to a style that was once dying. Haven't had many Gose, but I am hooked now because of this beer.

Very, very good! Cheers!
