It's hard to mess up an apricot beer as long as it uses real fruit. Into a goblet.
A - Holy damn this beer explodes with a glass full of foam which baffles the mind since nobody else mentioned over carbonation. Beer itself is a semi hazy bright yellow with the foam making for great lacing.
S - Slightly sour and salts gose smells semi mild with apricot and some stone fruit.
T - Not getting much actual apricot which in my experience is very sweet. Tones of lactic sweetness, semi sour lemon rind and finish is somewhat wheaty. Not bad as an overall sour when I want sweet...
M - Crisp light somewhat watery decent gose.

Overall a sure fire cure for the sour beer need but nothing but under ripe apricot and salty sour goseness. Decent beer overall.

This beer is awesome! Love it! The smell is fruity, sour, sweetness. The taste follows, fruit. Sour, salt. Really balanced and really good.

Can at share. Pale yellow, relatively flat, dull pour. Big fruity nose, sweet, taste too. Kind of tart. Nice apricot flavors. Lingers for quite awhile.

Sour like no other. This beer carries the apricot forward to add to the bitterness. Highly carbonated and has lots of pucker affect. Clean and crisp, with the kick in the rear to wake up the senses.

a really excellent gose, intense in the right ways, which for me are saltiness and sourness. this somehow got lost in my fridge for several months, and i have to imagine the apricot may have faded some, although i have no way of knowing now. its awesome all these evil twin beers are coming around. i like the wording on the can too, sometimes evil twin nails the social commentary as well as they do the beer! milky pale yellow in appearance, somewhat thin, but bubbly and under a pretty rising white head, looks good in my angular wine glass. the aroma is nice, slightly sweet from the fruit, but wheaty for sure, loads of fresh coriander, sharp lemon, clean lactic sourness, and heaps of mouthwatering juiciness, smells hoppy sort of too, lots of brine and minerals. excellent taste too, i love how forward the salt is, one of the saltier goses i have had in a little while, and very sour too, but its clean and dry. the apricot is an accent, nice with the floral elements in here and the coriander seed. lightly peppery, highly citrusy, but tidy and with the salt drying it out even more at the end, iron and iodine there too. really great carbonation, frothy from the wheat, and darn sour too, but i could still slam a few of these back. it would be cool if the did the whole alphabet with different adjuncts...

Poured into a stange, the appearance was a murky pale orange to pale amber color, light transparency but not all of the way there. Some lace slid down with the sips after a fizzy and slightly bubbly head slid off pretty quick.
The aroma had some sweet apricot flesh playing with a subtle tart to sweet apricot skin then some acidic lemon quality came out. Light coriander and a touch of grassiness came out with a little bit of warmth.
The flavor was moderately tart with the sweetness from the apricot coming out fairly nice. Lemon and coriander rounded out the taste fairly well. Mild aftertaste of the apricot and coriander.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair crisp sessionable sort of feel to it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Finish was all about the apricot.
Overall, I think I liked this more for me, but gose fans might not like this one so much as there's not much "sour-ed wheat" or any for the most part. And, it's also missing the saltiness, but honestly the more I think about it, the more I think somehow it still worked, perhaps more of an American wild ale, I guess.

Batch 001 but no canning date
Bog foamy fizzy head fades quickly after hitting about 3 fingers, murky peach honey color

Nose some apricot but more like extract than fresh, little syrupy apricot preserve, light doughy wheat grassy malt, bready, touch of citrus and coriander like spice, apricot really increases as it warms

Taste starts very tart and acidic, big acidic bite, tart fruit, lemony, some apricot again sweet extract preserve like apricot, little doughy wheat and bready malt, little sticky sweet fruit syrup, hint of salt on the back end flemmy finish

Mouth is med to lighter bod, flemmy big tart acidity, fluffy carb

Overall not bad but more Berliner like with the big sour flemmy thing, less light gose, apricot was more syrupy jam than fresh fruit.
