Great ruby color, nice fruity smell. Fruity taste wild mild tartness and a nice feel with a somewhat dry finish and a touch of salt. Great gose!

Brilliant ruby color and an excellent tart and fruity sour with some earthy raspberry finish on the palate. The only thing I could pick up was any salt but this was a really pleasing and drinkable beer.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/20/2018. Pours moderate hazy dark ruby red/light purple color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tart/tangy elderberries, cranberry, blueberry, strawberry, fruit skin, lemon, lime, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, elderberries, salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour/tart/tangy elderberries, cranberry, blueberry, strawberry, fruit skin, lemon, lime, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy elderberries, cranberry, blueberry, strawberry, fruit skin, lemon, lime, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, red grape, sea salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, elderberries, salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness, and tangy fruit balance; with no puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness and tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/acidic/tangy, fairly crisp, and lightly saline balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an outstanding fruited gose! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, elderberries, salt, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp to drink with the mellowly acidic/tangy/drying finish; not overly lactic or salty. Awesome balance of jammy berries, Lacto complexity, and pale/wheat malts against acidity. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected. Just as impressive as the Dewberry version.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a one pint can on August 23, 2018. A gose style ale brewed with salt and elderberry. Look is clear bright red. Taste is fruity. Feel could have been a little more tart.
