S: Sea-salt, pear, and coriander predominate.

M: Full bodied, solid effervescence in the mouth.

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!

L: semi cloudy light yellow

F: thin and watery

If thanks to Goingbrokeonbeer for this
12 oz can, dated 9/12/15, poured into a pint glass

A- A slightly hazy golden straw with a two finger white head.

S- Lemons, coriander, wheat, just enough salt.

T- Lemons, touch of lime, wheat, coriander, salt, well balanced.

M- Smooth, light body.

O- A great Gose, taste is pretty traditional for a Gose. Wish I could get this near me!

On this Gose and sour binge this has been the best so far. So much so I buy it out every time I see it in store! It's currently my favorite beer and I always keep an eye out for it! Great simple taste. The second I open it I salivate knowing the taste I am about to get. Highly recommend.
