16 ounce can - pours out a bubbly slightly hazy, though not cloudy, golden yellow with bubbly finger of short lived white head.
Aroma strikes with a lemony brininess, earthy and slightly herbal, lime - margarita like.
Taste of lemon-lime but with a salty sweet note, earthy, leafy, that finishes with a crisp tartness - again a little margarita like but spiked with seaweed.
Medium mouthfeel with deliciously prickly carbonation carrying the lemon-lime salty sweetness to a refreshingly sharp tart (but not sour) end.

Batch #001 , 16:59

Translucent deep gold, with moderate white head.

"Fresh ocean breeze" scent, of a typical gose, plus a sour lemony smell , and a very slight spicy/herbal aroma.

Taste is sour lemon/lime , mostly, with some slight celery seed+sage+horehound, and light bitterness.

Feel is light, smooth, and slightly oily. Moderate fine, sharp carbonation.

Overall, easy-drinking , and thoroughly enjoyable. Cold, snowy, & windy now, but I've had this in hot weather, and it really shines then. Highly recommend it!

Excellent gose. Pours nice, hazy, golden yellow. The lime, salt sour character is great. It's not an overwhelming sour, like some, but still very tart but still very drinkable. This is a definitely a great sour!

Nice straw color poured with very decent initial head from a 16 ounce can. A nose reminiscent of hay bales and moist forest floor plant matter. That might not sound like a pleasant descriptor but it actually is quite nice. Really excellent gose style here with some unique ingredients and notes: moss, celery, seaweed, salt and grass. Finishes beautifully with an aftertaste that simply mirrors all the aroma and tasting notes

Canned 12/7/15; drank 6/12/16 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy pale yellow appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A rough pour yielded a huge, noisy white head; minimal lace.

Lime, sea salt & faint mint notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Lemon & sea salt flavors up front; tart lime notes on the finish. Sea salt settled on my lips over the course of the quaff.

A pleasantly tart, fruity, salty gose; perhaps a bit too salty but overall very enjoyable.

Sea salt is extremely prominent on this guy. You get a little bit of that umami from the seaweed in between the tart acidity of this beer. Overall a pretty well structured gose and a beer I will generally pick up when I see.

Wonderful golden clear color. Smell is off tart sugar candy and sour gummies. Taste is incredible. Makes you pucker just at a sip. Carbonation flows throughout as the salt and sourness floods your palate. Amazing sour. I love it

The lightly hazy pale golden yellow colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 3/4” fluffy white head that leaves a few scattered patches of lacing as it recedes slowly but visibly until it becomes a small ring around the glass and a thin irregular island on the surface. At first sipping creates a some scattered patches of lacing but eventually there are only widely scattered small patches of lacing on the sides of the glass.

The aromas have some lemony acidity, some herbal character, a lightly musty character (moss?) and a hint of bready malt. There’s also a very light but noticeable briny and seaweed smell (think iodine) along with a very light bit of smokiness.

The flavors which initially focus on the lemony tartness and a bit of citric zest are noticeably backed up by some complexities which are hard to unravel but seem to come from the moss (a bit of musty smell), some herbs and some brine. The sweetness from the malt remains in the background where there’s also a light smoky character and just a bit of iodine from the kelp but not much bitterness.

The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and slightly crisp and prickly from the moderate carbonation and the acidic tartness. The finish is mostly about the slow fading of all of the flavors. The kelp, herb and moss flavors are mingled in with the tartness that dominates the salty, iodine tinged ending that shows just a bit of smokiness but little bitterness until this all disappears and the very long ending is eventually all about the even slower disappearance of the lemony tartness.

Overall this strikes me as being a reasonably well made beer that displays a strong tartness and just a bit of almost hidden salt but also has a good bit of subtle complexity added in from some herbs, some moss, some wheat and a bit if smoke. The beer is also temperature sensitive in that a lot of the subtle complexities began to show more as the beer warmed towards room temperature. That all said I’ll probably not be having this one again since I would prefer the tartness to be more in the background. (I should also add that if I had not had some of these ingredients before, there’s no way I would have been able to recognize they were there and identify them without knowing the ingredients list.)

Appearance – Absolutely no head on a clear, slightly greenish yellow body. 5 oz, sample glass.

Aroma – Pineapple, a bit herbal, some smokiness. Unusual but good.

Taste – Quite sour and a bit herbal, some salty smokiness thrown in.

Mouthfeel – Very refreshing and easy drinking.

Overall – The description sure looked weird but it worked. Worth looking for.
