Served On-Tap

A — Pours a hazy lemony yellow color with a bubbly white head that fades and leaves no real lacing behind.

S — Smell is light, grainy, lightly sweet, little bit of a tart lemony overtone.

T — Taste is light and very mild compared to some others in the style. With a lemony light sourness, somewhat grainy base.

M — Light to medium bodied, crisp and clean finish.

O — Good overall, just fairly muted and monotone for the style.

160z draft at TRVE. Good beer but less Gose-like then I'm used to. It's light and with less salt and sour than Gose's I've had previously. Easy drinking beer.

16 oz pour at TRVE.

A: Cloudy light gold. The little head that was initially there did not last long. A little bit of lacing after I drink more and more.

S: Light hint of wheat, no alcohol present at all in the nose.

T: Very interesting, I think the first gose I've ever had. The coriander seeds and salt are pleasant, especially on a hot summer's night after walking a bit. Starts off like most wheat beers, then ends with saltiness.

M: This one definitely needed some more carbonation.

O: Fix the carbonation issue and you'd have a really nice summer seasonal.

this is another epic brew from the new true brewing on broadway. it is a salted wheat beer, brewed in the gose style with carbon rich hawaiian sea salt. it pours a thick hazy pale blonde color with some serious viscosity for such a light beer. the head is an inch tall, bone white, and permanent. the beer smells very fresh on the wheat malts, heavier and unfiltered, but it has a sort of earthy sting to the nose, not exactly akin to ocean water, but a wimilar vibe. the flavor is to die for. its salty and sweet up front, almost like a fresh salted caramel. the salt is subtle, but vibrant and unmistakable. it playes perfectly with the spice from the yeast and the heavy wheat malts here. it just continues to evolve in the mouth and finishes dry and crackly, already ready for another gulp before its all the way down. ive never had a beer like this, and i think this is a gold medal worthy brew, really. its got everything, its super creative, and its an oddity in perfect balance. the feel is great, thicker for a beer this light, and plenty of bubbles. i wouldnt change a thing about it, and im still hanging for another pint. please someone else review this and confirm how good it really is! i dont want to be alone on this island...
