-Gose style brewed with orange, lemon, and key lime.

A: A pale lemon pour darkens in the vessel to a medium dense orange. A loud crackling comes from the carbonation breaking the surface. A dirty white head quickly falls atop to a scarce covering. Tightly knitted carbonation bubbles follow multiple strand like paths, packed densely together.

S: Wet lemons make the aroma moist and lightly sour with some key lime accents that was very sharp and fresh on the open. Tart grapefruit, freshly sliced burst from the nose with a very smooth and refined nature and good awareness.

T: The flavor was lightly tart and refreshing, lemon and lime summer drink like that was sharp and acidic in its delivery. Bittering lemon juice and some fruitiness of tart apricot and bready malts combine with citrus to give a full and hoppy tart bite. Lemon-orange citric bite comes on the finish, very sharp with a follow of lingering grapefruit floral, damp, with some sweet/sour edges of fruitiness, particularly apricot and semi-sweet peaches from the yeast.

M: Very bubbly mouthful, champagne like effervesce. Good body, medium thick, turns creamy with a good sour awareness worthy of style.

O: Bubbly citric Gose is loaded with enough lemon lime tang and flair to make a great summer time, pucker up quencher. Sharp and acidic in nature, with some damp floral hops and fauna notes give a lively green feel. Refreshing, tart and at 4.2% packs quite the sour punch sure to gain praise and retries.

On draft, Barrel Chest & Wine, Roanoke, VA.

Pale transparent color, no head as it settles, flat liquid.

Sour, tart, bright citrusy aromas. Crisp, slightly grainy. Simple but pleasant.

Bright, sour lime hits right away. Bright, refreshing, and again, simple. Just great, clean citrus flavor.

Light, with subtle but sharp carb and a pretty mild acidity. Very refreshing.

A: Can art evokes South Beach, but it's just some yuppies drinking limeade at the community pool. The actual beer is a foggy, golden yellow. Lots of fizzy head.

S: Getting a lot of fruitiness out of this at the expense of any boardwalk seabreeze. Still, it's like a bright day at the pool with lots of orange Hi-C for the kids and margaritas for the adults (the salt rim already ingested). More in the vein of lemon sherbert than sorbet, so it's more of sugar than fruit flavored ice.

M: Little body, little tingle. Lacks some carb even though it's strait from a can; the finish is slick and saline.

T: Snappy combination of citrus. The supporting salt gives it a savory finish. Lime Tostitos chips, lemon angel food cake, orange tic-tacs.

L) Pours a lovely straw color, little head and retention. No lacing.

S) The nose has very clean notes of citrus, kumquat, lemon curd, and even a slight spice to is. It is very inviting.

T) The taste is lovely. The lemon curd really shines and there are zesty notes of an unsweetened limeade. You can detect the citrus zest behind the crisp tartness, as well as a smidgen of pepper.

F) The brew is perfectly carbonated. Surprisingly full bodied for the style, a pleasure to swirl across the tongue. Incredibly spritzy.

O) A lovely bottle for citrus and sour lovers. Great to pair with sea food.

Moderately tart but bit more salt taste than Mose gose. It’s good and recommended. Will buy another.

750ML bottle with bright plumage that seems designed to catch the eye of the male of the species. Worked once. Split with my wife to open a night of drinking on the couch.

The pour is very light yellow with lots of pizzazz – it would be fun to hand this to someone as a new IPA & watch them cough & sputter. Smells like lemon & citrus with a shot of raw sugar, which I’m sure is wrong.

Suburban Beverage is tarter than some sours I know. A bracing shot of salt water up front is torn up by a sharp, acetic bout of sharp lemon juice. Mid-palate brings mineral water (that hasn’t yet been bathed in), something that I can almost identify as key lime, citric. Salt comes back lightly at the end. Refreshing & airy.

Sharp enough to be interesting yet not so sour as to foul the stomach & after a couple of ounces. Very good beer.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku glass from a 750 ml bottle on February 9, 2018. Gose brewed with Valencia oranges, key lime and Mayer lemon. Tart and refreshing.
