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!

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.
