12 oz can poured into snifter no canned on date

A: Hazy dirty straw color head is fairly big small bubbled and creamy looking. Head doesn't stick around long

S: Smells salty, slightly vinnegary, and a little bit of a hay funk.

T: Nice and tart with a slight sweet light wheat taste and a good dose of saltiness, ends fairly sour and dry.

M: Very light, crisp, and dry. The beer invites another sip because of the dryness.

O: One of the more sour Gose style beers I have had, but it does not suffer for it. This beer has the nice mid body sweetness and wheat finish that characterize this style and a great dose of saltiness. If there is anything negative at all about this beer it is how dry it is, it finishes almost puckeringly dry.

A really solid gose that is enjoyable and refreshing. I really like the design of these cans and the beer inside is just as impressive. It has a medium tart taste with no lingering aftertaste.

Smell: tart lemon lime dry fruit salt.
Taste: a really nice tart lemon upfront followed in the middle of the mouth with a nice saltiness lime green apple finishes with vinegar more salt and a slight spice.
Feel: light to medium body really dry in the finish. Really refreshing
Overall: a nice tartness that is balanced out with a good amount of salt. Really tasty and refreshing.

12oz can poured into Teku. Hazy yellow color with thin head. While I didn't pick up specifically on the salt and coriander this beer was refreshing and tart. This is only the second sour I have tried and for that reason will revisit once I learn the category better. I truly enjoyed this offering and will be seeking it out again.

Pretty much follows the 'notes/ commercial description ' section word for word. Very impressed by the interpretation of the style...Great beer for a hot summers day.
