The Illusion of Safety? ...Or should we say the mirage that is our existence? Day in and day out, never deviating from the numbing routine of eat | work | sleep | repeat. Living in complete delusion that material possessions matter. That money, power, and status denote our individual worth. Battling the constant gravitation toward the inevitable; our empty luggage of a carcass - void of meaning, strewn across a deserted highway. The shell we once knew, now a home for the carrion birds.

Huge raspberry jam aroma and flavor. Magenta in color with a large white head. The fruit, tart, and salt really go well together. There might be a touch of acetone in the finish.

The beer has a nice bubbly white head with a tinge of red to it. The beer itself is a raspberry red whose texture resembles liquid jam but retains enough texture to be pretty good to look at.

The smell is good with a strong sugary raspberry jam and a light tartness. There doesn't seem to be a salty note.

The taste is a step up with a more complex and available notes. The raspberry is there along the tartness and a slight salt that works well with the tart. It's definitely delicious.

The feel is good. It has a light body but some heft and a bit heavier than you would expect.

Fantastic. Definitely a must have.

If you're going to do a raspberry gose, this is the way to do it. 100%, straight-up, unabashed raspberry color, aroma, and fresh-picked raspberry flavor with refreshing tartness. Delicious.

L - Beet red. Just like raspberry juice!
S - Raspberry and the typical malted wheat smell of gose
T - Slight saltiness that balances out the raspberry sourness
F - Amazing thirst quencher on a hot day. Very full of flavor, they did not not skimp.

I used to not be a fan of Adroit originally but their gose game is on point!!
