Very refreshing beer that is great in the summer. Again SARA does not disappoint. I would drink this beer all year long because it's very tasty and balanced

Hazy murky pale yellow. Light acidity, tart. Coriander and salt actually show. Easy drinking. Nothing stands out a lot here, but it is definitely a solid brew.

Pour is hazed yellow with a tight white head that lingers for a moment. Nose is salty up front, hint of doughy malt, moderate sweetness and lemony aromas, a bit of citrus and a touch of peppery spice. Taste is even sweeter, lemon and citrus, light acid, hints of dough, citric acid through the well carbonated finish. Fuller creamy body, a touch syrupy.

Thanks Moll. Hazy yellow body with a quarter inch of white head. Salt, celery, wheat, sunshine. Light in body, but not thin. Salty, yet refreshing. Light fruity notes. Quite tasty.

750ml bottle shared at the Malt House while waiting for Great Taste tickets.

Pours a hazy golden, yellow body, two finger white head with good retention and a medium-sized collar. Not much lacing. Smells of citrus and lemon, a fair amount of wheat, a bit of spice, not particularly salty. Flavour is wheat-forward, moderate lemon, coriander is quite strong here, not a ton of sea salt here. Mild graininess as well. I suspect there is some white wine in here as well, but easily could be wrong. Nice tartness, but not acidic. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, fluffy and soft, good carbonation, incredibly refreshing and easy to drink. Overall, it is on the sweeter, vinous and fruitier side than typical Gose's; it is lacking a bit on the salt component but for what it lacks it makes up in terms of the sweetness and spices without compromising drinkability and crispness. A very solid Gose.

750ml bottle poured into a Sante Adairius snifter. Enjoyed on 3.7.15, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a hazy golden yellow, pale and mellow, minor activity in the glass, with a finger or so of soapy white head, nice retention and a decent amount of spotted lace. The aroma is of tart lemon, sea salt, mild funk, lightly acidic and sour grapefruit with a touch of wildflower and earthy pale wheat. The flavors are more acidic, lemon and citrus, pale wheat, mustiness, wildflower with a bit of a sea salt bite, all in all a nicely balanced presentation. The mouthfeel is lively, zippy, decent carbonation, coating with a creamy finish and a medium body that is heavier than anticipated.

Verdict: A very nice take on the Gose from Sante Adairius, simple and balanced, refreshing with pleasant bright qualities. I would love to enjoy this in quantity during the summer months.

A hazy, light straw yellow with a dense white head, this looks good. The nose is brilliant. Bright, sour, focused, with a blend of funk, earth, mushrooms, a touch of sulfur, salt and coriander all on a wheaty, bready base, this smells excellent. The palate mirrors these flavor notes, with the robust wheat base, dextrinous and lending a backbone for the lactic and Bretty flavors. Refreshing. Very nice.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow body. Big white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Yeasty. Lightly lemony. White wine and oak.

Taste - Bright lemon. Grainy. White wine builds up and adds some sweetness in the back end. Very light tartness.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Wine accentuates the body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Had this at the end of the night, which was probably foolish. Nice beer, but perhaps I missed some of its nuances.

One of the best takes on a gose I have encountered. Neon yellow/orange with floral and citrus right away. Ever so slightly funky. Not as salty as some other contenders, but the sea salt is there. All around solid.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark pumpkin color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is stone fruits and mild saltiness, funk and banana. Flavor is vivid dried apricots with mild coriander and brine. Really fruity, brett C, high carbonation, dry finish. Really came together well.
