look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Hazy light gold, with a good amount of visible carbonation and a thin white head that fades quickly.

S: Lemony tartness and citric acid, over pilsner and cracker malts. There’s salinity as well, then something green or vegetal in the background that I can’t quite place.

T: Light tartness and pilsner malts with moderate sulfurous quality. Lemon and lime citric acid with medium salinity level and lactic tartness. It finishes dry and tart and salty.

M: A light body. Minimal alcohol. The carbonation sensation is on the low side for style.

O: A bit heavy on the pilsner malts for my taste, and a bit light on the tartness. Just nothing I’d buy again. I’m not sure where the vegetal aroma was coming from, but that didn't help.

I really dig this beer. Extremely balance with nice tart middle tones. Drinks easy. I can see how some might be underwhelmed, but personally I think the subtlety makes this beer stand out.

Out of the bottle it somehow looks clear, yet quite hazy in the glass. Straw yellow color, yeast floating about, and a moderate bubbly head that dissipates into a patchy film.
The initial aroma has a slightly funky quality, sour and with a touch of wet grass. Then, strong lime aroma with a touch of ocean air and coriander.
The taste has a moderate tart quality comprised of lime, green apples. The coriander and restrained use of salt adds balance and a subtle briny quality. A firm wheat and Pilsner malt backbone adds a touch of sweetness and especially opens up towards the final third of the drink.
It’s on the light side of medium bodied, moderately carbonated (perhaps not as high as other examples) and with a dry and puckering finish. Tart but quite accessible.
This was a nice Gose.

12 oz. can poured into a willibecher.

A- Hazy straw in color. Head is white, and dies quickly as Goses usually do. Tiny bits of lacing.

S- Lacto and lime tang. Slight metallic aroma, and a light toast/grainy malt.

T- Very mild lacto tang. A lot of the tang comes from the lime juice. Malt a little less noticeable but there.

M- Light body. Sweet and tangy. Finish is bittersweet lime, with some faint salinity. Carbonation tingly.

O- Not bad. A bit different with the lime notes, but complements the style well.

I believe I drank this for the first time in Napa, CA, outside that music festival place/event. Pours a light and cloudy straw yellow, very feint amount of malt obvious here, small 1/4" white head. Aroma of lime, tartness, mild wheat.

The taste keeps up with the citrus and lime input, while not traditional, it is still a welcome twist to the genre. Salinity is in appropriate amounts, and seems like a natural pair with the lime influence going on. The body is light, the tartness is middle of the road and not a jacked up wild ale kind of brace yourself sourness

I think this is a good gose with its own little unique twist that isn't reinventing the wheel and actually tastes good.

Canned 11/18/17
Slightly hazy orange-gold, with moderate, quickly-dissipating white head, that leaves a 1/16" ring.

Aroma is bottled lime juice, slight apple cider vinegar, slight crackery malt, and "fresh ocean breeze".

Taste is bottled lime juice (I.e. not like fresh-cut rind), light tart apple (like dry hard cider) , light bread crust, and barely-there jammy candied lemon rind. On the light side of of the tartness spectrum, not puckery at all . A little salt, that is only apparent after every thing fades. [Additional note] As it reaches ~ room temperature (60F) , I get a little of the banana note, that Roguer mentions. Not a lot, and not unpleasant.

Feel is light,moderately creamy, and watery on latter half, with soft carbonation tingle.

Overall, super-easy-drinking, quite good, and seems like something that would be fantastic at the end of a hot summer day. Maybe not my favorite gose, as it's light on the tartness (I'm all-in for "tart". ;) ) I'm halfway through the second one, without even noticing. There's something to be said for that. If you like sour styles, or are looking for an alternative "lawn mower beer", give it a try.
Going by previous reviews, I'd guess this blends and mellows with age, to improve it slightly.
