I'm on a gose drinking mission and this is yet another one. As far as Gose goes, this is one of the better ones, very lactic forward, nice and strong. Not too salty.

Beer served in a snifter, thanks Michael. Beer is yellow and dirty looking with a thin white head of small bubbles, no retention, no lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is lactic acid, all the way.

Beer is medium to light in body and really creamy, strong, mildly salty interesting. Almost no yeast comes through at all. I still like the Upright one better but this one is quite good.

Sample at Boise bottle share. The salt really shines through on this gose, Pale golden with sour nose, and sweet sour taste, this is a rally nice light profile beer.

Poured from 12oz can into my Trim Tab Brewing pint glass.

Appearance: thickly cloudy yellow-gold hue with a quickly-dissipating head. That cloudiness is just amazing.

Smell: sweet and tart with a light fruitiness and a light funkiness. The tartness and the fruitiness combine to create kind of a lemony aroma. I quite like it indeed.

Taste: very tart up front with a nice wheaty character at the end. Saltiness is low but is definitely there. I think that after a whole can I'm going to appreciate the somewhat low salt level.

Mouthfeel: light body with a light carbonation that is more refreshingly fizzy than creamy. Good for the style.

Overall: this is an incredibly drinkable beer. I would love to have this available in my area for hot days, tailgating and camping. Great stuff.
