Not a huge Gose fan but everyone says this is one of the best. Not a salty beer fan

Apparently this is what all the cool kids are drinking these days.

Sixer from Tri-Boro Beverage. Served two cans at a time. :)

Ommegang Anniversary glass. Hazy lemon/orange pour. Wispy inch of retreating white foam.

Smells of lemon-lime soda & a bunch of yeast. Something vaguely squash-like.

Tons of sour lemon upfront, along with a big scoop of gunky yeast. Metamucil comes to mind. Lactic. Maybe there's salt there, but all that lemon... No coriander to be found either, so sad. Maybe I'll serve the rest strained through some crushed seeds along with a sprig of cilantro.

Prickly carbonation. Goopy texture.

Totally different beast when compared to something traditional like Leipziger Gose, or even something more modern, like Barrier Brewing's rendition(which I also love).

Sourheads on a budget need to get their fix somehow I guess.

By third sip it tastes like pure sea salt. Lost coriander flavor

A kind co-worker gave me a can of this to sample. Said it was highly rated on BA. "Sour and Salty," most definitely. But delicious? No.

Looks good and pours with minimal head, but the first sip reminds me of the the tapwater at Myrtle Beach: nasty. It tastes more like somebody poured salt and a little bit of lemon juice into a cheap Chardonnay. I just don't get the claim that this is delicious beer.

Yes, I drank it, the whole can. It was a gift, after all, and I wanted to give it a chance. But I would never buy one of these, there are too many good beers out there to waste money on brackish brew.

A-pours a hazy, dull, pale yellow color with almost no head

S-raw bread dough, salty, sour acidic fruits

T-sour fruits and saltiness destroy the palate and finish with a lingering bread dough flavor

MF-light bodied but mellow and smooth

O-my first representation of the style, so I can't exactly review based on style but I am not a fan of Gose's so far
