Notes / Commercial Description:

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look is cloudy and creamy pale yellow with almost 2 fingers of white head.

Smell is mainly sour wheat and a touch of citrus.

Taste is a little surprising. More salty than tart with a little citrus kick at the end.

Feel is on point with moderately high carbonation and kind of dances across ones palette.

Overall a nice beer just a little bit caught off guard. The saltiness overpowers the tartness and I wasn't ready for that. This is a very well done gose , I just prefer mine with a little more tartness to them. As always grateful for the opportunity.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. Light speckled carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Barely any lacing was left in the wake of the head. The smell started off with a crisp refreshing blend of sour wheat to sweet citrus grabbing my nose and punching it with a fairly sharp orange rind. The taste takes the previously mentioned flavors to combine and add a light dose of salt to taste. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation comes across restrained but good. Overall, I say this was a pretty nice crisp refreshing gose that I would have again.

opague yellow to orange look.
mild funk smell with brigth lemon/orange and spice
tastes follows the smell, mild sweet/sour citrus with somefunk to it, and sea salt balanced with corriander.
well carbonated, the salt and sourness adds a little puckering on the tastebuds, light and brite over-all.
Overall, this is a fantastic hot weather beer: beach, boat, post lawn mowing or sports. Its easily crushable and a low ABV means you can have several without consequence. This is a great beer to break into sours, as it opens the door, but doesn't pummel you with sour and/or funk, but does give a polite introduction to both.

L -- Murky yellow. Aerated pour produces a two-finger white head that dissipates quickly to nothing. No lacing. Highly effervescent
S -- Grain, briny sulfur, lemon. Very mild
T -- Sea salt takes center stage, made more refreshing by hints of lemon, coriander, tarragon, cranberry, and wheat
F -- The high carbonation and mild flavors make for a refreshing mouthfeel. Not too watery thanks to the saltiness
O -- This is a great summer outdoors brew. If you pace yourself and drink it instead of water, it can be just as hydrating.

L- good head, didn't diminish quickly, slightly cloudy decent lacing

S- salty, lemon, light spice

T- salty and lively carbonation do most of the heavy lifting on this one. lemon and coriander come in to play later and lightly.

F- light, salt, easy.

O- super easy drinking summer beer. saltiness is strong but not overpowering. didn't get knocked over with it though. this is a solid beer, def going in the rotation.
