look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

$ 5.32 (Including shipping and PA tax)/12 oz can ($ 0.444/oz) from Tavour, Seattle, WA. Reviewed 9/5/19.
“CANNED ON 07/09/19” stamped on can bottom. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 42 degrees in a hand-washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 3.5.
First pour – Very light yellow, very slight haze.
Body – Yellow, hazy.
Head – Large (Maximum 7.3 cm, aggressive center pour), white, high density and creamy, average duration, diminishing to a five mm crown and a complete cap.
Lacing – None.
Aroma – 2.5 – Rotting fruit and the ocean, not pleasant.
Flavor – 3.5 – Much better than the nose. A bit of dilute orange, slightly sweet and lightly salty. No alcohol (9.2% ABV) flavor or aroma, no dimethylsulfide, no diacetyl.
Palate – 3 – Medium, almost creamy, lively carbonation.
Final impression and summation – 3 – Alcohol is well hidden and the flavor is OK after getting by the stench.

CAN:

Smacky and strangely delicious, with a nice salty dried-lime finish and hints of coriander throughout. Lactic acid is strong in this one, but the sour twang really works for it, and I'm appalled how well hidden the 9.2% ABV is - I'd figure this for 5.5% max. The blood orange isn't all that apparent, but it's present, blending into the citrusy lime-lemon melange of goodness.

Finishes tart, sour, smacky, acidic, and twangy, bringing all its fruity notes to the fore with aplomb.

I didn't know Martin House had this in them. A standout Gose with a lovely sour acidity and style-appropriate citrus and salt. I'd definitely pick this up by the sixer - and that's not something I think can be said about any Martin House beer I've had to date. Unexpectedly good work from a brewery not known for the same.

B / GOOD
