A bit on the crushed aspirin side of funkiness that made it bitter and not as drinkable as it could have been. Very rustic all around and a good compliment to a meal

Fun take on the gose style, I am here for the wild gose revolution! Murky bright yellow pour with a white head and pretty lacing. Oak backed funk, big citrus, slight musk, and peach skins in the nose. Taste takes the flavors from the nose and adds flowers, light wheat, and more definition to the citrus hops, exploding grapefruit, lemon, orange, even a hint of mango comes through. Feel is lightly sour but more so funky, hopped, yet finishes dry with a nod to the underlying traditional gose wheatiness. Truly an elevated gose

Served in nonic at Garden Path Fermentarium. Poured a hazy yellow color with 3/4 inch of white head that had moderate retention and lace.

The aroma was solid grain, citrusy hops, and nice funk.

Very similar on the tongue, with the tartness and funk overtaking the fruitiness.

The body was light medium, and had an exceedingly dry finish.

Drinkability was awesome, I could easily drink a bunch more of these. Overall, and excellent beer. Must try if you see it.

First of all, outside of the nose, I don't think I could really distinguish this one from the base version of Hose. Looks cloudy, yellow, white head. Aroma was citrusy hops, they didn't skimp on the citra here. A little bit of gose-y salt and coriander as well.

Taste is definitely one of the most sour gose beers I've ever come across. Straddles the line between wild ale and gose for sure, but all the better for it. There's some oak, some coriander that isn't overdone at all, citrus flavors. Salt is minimal. Sour dominates. Brett feels, wheat grist.

A: Pours a cloudy golden color with a one finger foamy off-white head.

S: Spicy wood, pine, dried orange peel, grapefruit rind and salt.

T: An absolute explosion of citrus peel and salt. A good amount of oak, lemon and grapefruit juice on the finish. Just so so good.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a weizen glass.
LOOK: Pours with two finger's worth of white foam that shrivels down to half a finger's worth after 1 minute and 45 seconds. Orange-yellow in color (not quite honey colored). Rising bubbles are moderate. Lacing is thin and moderate.
SMELL: Strong piney hop aromas meet with mild sour yeast and coriander aromas and subtle aromas of wheat, oak, and salt.
TASTE: Initial taste is of strong sour yeast, citrusy hops, and mild oak and coriander flavors. Coriander flavors grow stronger as mild wheat and hints of piney hops enter immediately after the initial flavors. At last, to finish off this amazing symphony of flavor, hints of salt enter as all previous flavors persist
FEEL: Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated. Goes down smooth and finishes extremely crisp. Sourness from the beer playfully agitates the tongue.
NOTE: A phenomenal Gose, but needs more salt. This would bring the taste straight up to a 5 for me.
