Notes / Commercial Description:
A traditional German beer style that was all but extinct 30 years ago. An amazingly refreshing beer brewed with coriander and sea salt. The tart, dry finish combined with the hint of salt and citrus leaves your palate craving another sip.

Summer at the beach, in a can
Can't beat the woods-themed can

16oz can, undated, poured into a 16oz tumbler glass. Enjoyed on 7.28.17, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a bright golden color, light haze with a very tall and fizzy white head that has minimal retention and yields no lace. The aroma is decent, lightly salty with a touch of citrus, strong pilsner malt with a bit of spice and mineral water. The flavors are unimpressive, very bland, light citrus, light salinity, hardly any tartness to speak of, stronger spice that reads more like a witbier with some assertive yeasty esters and a mineral water laden finish. The mouthfeel is fine, light body, crisp and bubbly that coats well with a dry finish.

Verdict: A poor Gose. About as bland as it gets, nothing really pops other than a heavy use of coriander and stale malt. It's crushable, drinks more like a weird pilsner witbier hybrid that is nice in the summer sun, but as far as a Gose goes, pretty poor outing.

16oz can with a masssive dent in the top. According to the stamp on the rim of the bottom of the can, this was canned on May 28, 2017. Received courtesy of bl00.

Poured into a shaker pint glass, this was about 90% bone white foam. Letting it settle for a few minutes netted about 1/3 of a glass of beer from all that foam. After that, things poured much better, though restraint was still called for. Hazy lemon yellow in color, with a sticky, sudsy white head.

Salt and coriander up front in the nose.

While the taste is much like the nose, it's fairly easy drinking, with a relatively crisp mouthfeel. This is pleasingly tart and spicy, yet laid back enough for sessioning. If this were a local option, I'd keep it in mind for those outdoor grill gatherings of summer. Thanks, Dan!
