Appearance: Fairly cloudy straw-yellow color with a thick foamy white head that quickly faded.

Smell: Earthy and salty aromas come through with some grassy hay-like notes.

Taste: Salty and mildly sour citric (grapefruit) notes both come through strongly in the taste profile. There slight tartness and citrus notes linger in a dry finish.

Mouth-feel: Fairly light body with a lively carbonation.

Overall: My second Gose and this one stomped my first one. This was a tasty and refreshing and from the style guidelines this one appears to be spot on.

Tart, salty, crisp. Loved this beer. Gifted an extra in a trade and I dove into it after a porter and the beer absolutely shined. Poured out of the can looking like a your typical gose - light (clear) gold, lively carbonation, minimal head, ginger-ale like in color and hue. Aroma is lemon trees beside an ocean - salinity and tartness abound tingling the palate. Taste is fresh cut wheat, lemon, green apple, coriander, sea salt, and toasted white bread. Light, tingly and tart on the palate; crisp throughout with a nice snap of carbonation. Archetype of the style

A very cloudy yellow, small white head that disappears immediately. Flavor is tart and salty with lemon and grapefruit notes. Light body, high carbonation and a dry finish. A damn fine example of the style.

12 oz can

Pours cloudy lemon gold, sugar white lacing for a head.

Smells of lemon drops, cracker malts, and tart citrus.

Tasts of very tart green apple and lemon citrus, lactic acid, and saltine crackers.

Light body with stinging carbonation on the tongue.

A very tart and tasty gose, very sessionable, bright, and refreshing. Very good and worth revisiting.

12 oz. can dated 06/13/17

Pours foggy hazy yellow gold with a receding creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like huge coriander, bready crackery wheat, vanilla, salt, green apple, pear, tart lemons, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like coriander, salt, bready crackery wheat, vanilla, green apple, pear, tart lemon, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice gose.
