Brilliant golden hue with excellent clarity. The clarity was very cloudy much later on in the latter half of the bottle! Vibrant carbonation bubbles are present and yet there is no head whatsoever. Aroma is that of lightly acidic apples,light malt,and salt. The taste is light doughy malt,just a touch of coriander,and salt. There's the lightly acidic apple note in the fade. The salty and bubbly mouthfeel is refreshing. This pairs amazingly with pretzels.

On tap at Bridge in St. Louis.

Light yellow with a ring of minuscule bubbles. Smells lightly sweet, salty, a little like a pickle. Salty vinegar with deep but light sweetness. It's all the elements of a light wheat beer with a light pucker and saltiness. It is thin and cleanses with little lingering sourness or flavor.

While this was definitely pleasant, it is quite tame for a gose. Moderately tart with hints of apple in the background and just an ever so slight finish of salt. If just looking to get into gose, this is a great place to start, but it wouldn't satisfy a veteran of the style.

I was excited to see a 2nd Shift gose, especially since I'm a fan of their Katy. The aroma was very promising for a delicious salty sour-apple taste, but very disappointing flavor. I thought at first maybe something was wrong with my batch, but it looks like other reviews confirm this is a very, VERY mild gose. I'll finish my 750ml, but I won't be getting this again.

Had this Organic Saison at the Bridge. Poured from the tap a slightly hazy yellow-gold with two fingers of white head. A good amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma of sour cherry and tart green apple along with Belgian yeast and an earthy funk.

The sour cherry notes really came through on this one followed by green apple, yeast and fresh earth.

Medium bodied and a bit sticky with a crisp carbonation.

A decent Saison from 2nd Shift but not quite there with the best. The sour cherry notes tended to overwhelm the accompanying flavors.
