Poured from fridge temp. Beautiful golden yellow with little carbonation. Nose is really interesting. Salty, lemon, sour, earthy, orange peel. Taste is a quick burst of sour, a touch of tart, and a salty finish. The lemon notes really come through. Getting some wheat and a slight medicine taste. Definitely a dry finish. Pretty good stuff.

Canned March 24 according to the ink on the bottom of this 12oz vessel.

It is a very milky, unfiltered pale straw color with a fizzy white head that almost disappeared before I could take a picture of it.

As much as I love a Gose, I run into this occasionally with the aroma. Unfortunately, it smells very much like vomit. It is very sour with a lot of lactic acid, some salt, and a little lemon. I hate when this happens because it is really hard to overcome, but I tend to be pretty sensitive to it.

There is a puckering sour lemon and acidity up front with a touch of spicy corriander, follwed by some sea salt that seems to tame it a little. The wheat is very subtle. Barley noticeable to me.

The body is not nearly as carbonated as I would have guessed and had that signature soft feel.

I like the seemingly traditional approach, and having only tried American versions it may be more representative of the style than I scoring towards. This one is certainly drinkable overall, but seems pretty unbalanced toward the sour end to me. Some more wheat grains would probably help quite a bit, and letting it warm up seems to help.

This one is weird for me because the look and smell were not that appealing, but the taste and feel were great. I'm pretty new to sour beers and this not sure how they should look and smell in general so take my rating with a grain of salt.

I do know that the taste and feel of this beer are awesome and I want this again for sure.

From a can, pours as a really hazy straw with a quickly dispersing white head. Aromas of lime, green apple, and coriander. First taste impression is, wow, really astringent and sour. Lots of wheat flavors, slight malt, and zero hops. Light body, little carbonation, and an acquired taste.

Got in a BIF from oline73. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 6/8/2016. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of bit sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast. salt/spice, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate tart/sourness and light peppery spice on the finish; with lingering notes of sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/sourness balance, and no astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from sourness/acidity, and lightly puckering. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, acidic/saline, and fairly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an excellent Gose! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; even with the higher amount of acidity and sourness for the style. A very enjoyable offering.

Hazy pale yellow with a massive, overly carbonated eggshell head that doesn't stick around for very long, but completely disappears. A minor line of lace marks the highest level, and in the body, visible bubbles rise from the bottom.

Smell is salty lemon, milky and lactic, with a unique floral and seaweed mix. Grape and hay come forward before too long.

Taste is lemonade, salty lime, light lactic acid, with grape-apple juice and hay as it warms. Not leaving too much of an impression either way.

Tart and tingly in the back of the throat, and crisp.

Love this beer! I live in Baltimore and first tried this beer at a local pub where it was being served on draft. It's been making leeway the past few months and I couldn't be happier!

Look: The head fades very quickly, a very hazy beer.
Smell: Very tart, strong lemon smell
Taste: Pretty solid on the taste! It opens as a pretty tart beer, with strong notes of lemon. This Gose has a nice dose of salt, which contrasts the tartness very nicely. The aftertaste is very, very wheaty, which I love in a beer.
Feel: Incredibly light, about as light as your typical lemonade, and just as refreshing too.

All in all, I'm absolutely in love with this beer and impressed by how well the tart, salty and wheat flavors mesh.
