Very Good
Notes: The next in our Gose series is Pacificmost. Featuring a massive amount of mango and guava, this slightly tart and slightly salty Gose may be just the cure for what all the cool kids are calling "The dog days of summer."

The hazy pale golden yellow beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 2” ivory head that recedes fairly soon to become a ring around the glass, a small thin island of foam on the liquid leaving only scattered patches of lacing. Sipping creates a few scattered patches, most of which quickly slide back down the glass to the liquid.

The aromas are gentle and have both mango and guava up front. In the background there’s a very light tartness, a bit of wheat, and a bit of salt.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose and include some tropical fruit sweetness from the mango and guava. The wheat and crackery malt are almost by the tartness which shows just a bit of salt.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and soft with the almost imperceptible carbonation. The fairly long finish begins as the light fruity sweetness and wheat begin to fade away to leave the light tartness and salt to more slowly disappear.

Overall this beer was both drinkable and enjoyable with it’s fruity character, the light tartness and saltiness throughout the aroma/flavor profile. Refreshing on a hot summer day.

A thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright yellow color with a 1 inch head. Smell is tart, light guava and mango. Taste is the same, less tart than the aroma, some mango and guava, dry at the finish. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall, I'm not a big fan of this style, but this one's not bad.

There's no hint of mango or guava taste in this.

I know of the backlash of their "sellout" to ABI, but if it means increased distro, I find it hard to get unwound. This will not only act as a nice addition to The CANQuest (tm), but it will also serve as my initial entry in New CANned Fruit Beer Sunday (Week 647).

From the CAN: "For us, this Old World inspired beer is Mile Zero - the point at which we spin the compass needle and faithfully follow its will. This Gose takes its inspiration from both sides of the bright Pacific. Brewed with indulgent mango, exotic guava, and balancing Mediterranean sea salt, Pacificmost is maritime refreshment in a [CAN]. Cheers to following the needle of inspiration."; "Keep It Cold. Drink It Fresh."

Hmmm. "Maritime refreshment in a [CAN]," eh? I shall be the judge of that! 15,25 years in the Navy had me on all of the Seven Seas & on every CANtinent with the exception of CANtarctica. My CANpass needle follows The CANQuest (tm) CANpaign, wherever it may lead, even into uncharted waters.

When the style is unfiltered, then it CAN only mean that, following the Crack!, an inverted Glug is to be performed. In this instance, I wound up with just over a finger of foamy, fizzy, bone-white head with modest retention. Color was a hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose was easily identifiable as CANtaining mango & guava, but where was the sea salt (except on my shoulders)? Mouthfeel was kind of thin, slightly watery. The taste was like a watered-down mango-guava smoothie in that the tastes were perceptible, but not very intense in their presence. Likewise, the tartness was rather muted & I still was not registering any saltiness. Finish was semi-dry, but it was more like some sort of strange, weird pop than a beer. I just was not feeling this one.

Poured from the tap into an 11 OZ tulip glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a murky yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is all sour citrus. The taste is pure sour citrus bliss.

L - Hazy yellow color with a hefty amount of head
S - Banana, good acidity, citrus flavors
T - Acidity and the use of Mediterranean salt match so well along with the flavor of mango as a splash of fruit on your palate
F - Medium-bodied with a chewy mouthful

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. Bottled Sept 15th 2016.

Good opaque with some clarity in the body, but lots of fine carbonation with little streams all over. Dark lemon to light peach yellow color, and a real bright white frothing topped head. Soft topped at three fingers and big retention settling in at just under two tall height. Looks like a nice dollop of lemon ice cream, but a bit cloudy as expected.

Very nice nose. Aroma goes for excellent salinity and lacto tartness. Acididty is very moderate and not overly bright smelling, with some faint tropical notes that definitely tone it down with some more balance and play.

Great chewy and tart palate. Chewy sensing malt bill with light tartness and an almost crackling sense of grain. Real excellent tangy flavors of tropical mango and guava, wonderful tasting fruit addition that is nicely capped with a faint bit of salinity. Good chewy depth and fruity and full finish.

Excellent fruited gose.

12 oz bottle served in a goblet. Bottling date of Sept. 2016 (2 months ago).

The body is pale yellow-gold in color and slightly hazy. Short, weak head.
Moderately tart for style, with at least average saltiness. Tropical fruits in the fore up front. Fruity tartness and bready notes dominate the finish and aftertaste.
Medium body.
