Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Gose is an unfiltered wheat beer made with malted wheat. This creates a unique cloudy yellow colour and provides a refreshing crispness and twang. Our Gose has a low hop bitterness and features coriander and Himalayan salt, adding hints of complementary dryness, spice and a touch of sharpness to the beer.

This was the most disappointing beer . It really took me by surprise when i first tried it. Its a very off taste and does not taste like beer to be honest. I love Collective Arts but this beer jus tastes like juice that went bad and they through some alcohol in this juice that went bad . Its a very acquired taste . 2/10 would recommend to Beer Lovers .

i thought this was excellent, really cool artwork on the can too. its not got anything crazy in it, unless you count the himalayan sea salt, but salt goes in gose, so its not unexpected. however, despite its adherence to the traditional ingredients, the beer stands out to me as unique. its light yellow and cloudy, obviously wheat based, paler and lighter than others, with a soda sort of carbonation to it but not a lot of head collecting. smells very clean and very interesting, perhaps a different lacto strain than i normally see in there, lemony and brisk, with a nice mouthwatering acidity to it and an earthy quality thats great with the wheat. it has a great pop of citrus in the flavor, and the salt dries it out nicely with a brine and minerals sort of finish, champagne carbonation is excellent here as well. coriander is more subtle than the lacto or the salt, and im okay with that here, the beer does however have a nice herbaceous freshness though, even without a heavy dose of the distinctive coriander. i wish i stumbled into more beers from these guys this week, this was very tasty!

Slightly hazy with almost no carbonation, and almost a green tinge. Topped with a finger of snow white head.

Smells briny, a little of coriander, and a hint of lemon.

Tastes slightly salty, with a hint of coriander, and a sharp, tart, finish.

Light body, with low carbonation, and an acidic finish.

Got at LCBO, drinking in Muskoka, Feb 5th, 2018.

Look: Pale-medium hazy gold with a frothy, bubbly, pure white head that stands tall for much of the duration.
Smell: LOTS of funk, hay, lemons. Slight dry, spicy punch.
Taste: Less funk but still present, lemongrass, somehow devoid of pith. Almost sweet like a lemon buttercream in the middle before juicer notes set in. Plenty tart.
Feel: Refreshing and light-bodied. Good bite with no harshness into the finish.

What's this, an unfruited gose? What a novel concept. Well done with wheat character and moderate-to-high tartness, more salinity than most goses, and a slight spiciness from the coriander. Poured from a 16 ounce can that was massively bulging on the bottom. Dated July 2017 but I only purchased it a month ago and it was sitting in my basement during that time - not sure what caused the bulging but it tasted just fine.

Bright light straw color with a mist of yeast and low activity. Gets cloudy with all the yeast pour. Weak foamy white 1-2 finger head, lasting around 2-5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of coriander, cranberries, lemon, salt, wheat, and floral hops. Slick and oily full body with sharp carbonation. Medium strength finish, sour and tart fruity feel, soft spices with a rich mineral end and a hint of bread. Very well balanced with just the kind of intensity I like for a Gose. Pleasant body and highly refreshing. Overall very good quality craft.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carboanation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving lots of lacing on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of lemons and lactobacillus are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a light amount of sourness along with some hints of sourness in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This gose isn't as tart and sour compared to some of the other beers in the style but it is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of slight wheat, salt, citrus hops, hint of yeast, and strong coriander. Fits the style of a Gose. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight wheat, salt, citrus hops, hint of yeast, and strong coriander. Overall, very light body, not a fan of the coriander, but a good classical Gose.

Appearance - Pours a pale gold with three fingers of fizzy white head.

Smell - sea salt aromas, herbal notes (coriander), citrus (orange, and lemon), bready malts, spicy earthy yeast, and hint of spicy hops.

Taste - Nice cohesive blend of flavours, The sea salt, and coriander start off first then quickly goes into the citrus (orange, and lemon), bready malts. It is then followed by the bready malts and spicy earthy yeast. The spicy hops are practically non-existent as the sea salt and the other elements of the brew are blended cohesively.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes crisp with the sea salt lingering.

Overall - Another great brew from the folks at Collective Arts. This brewery never seems to disappoint.

Poured into a stange, the appearance was a semi-glossy to crisp burnt yellow/almost copper color with a finger's worth of sustaining white foamy head that dissipated after about a minute. No lace.
The aroma had a blend of sweet to sour wheat up front with some lemon and lime sour to sweet to semi-zesty and a touch of lemongrass right before the saltiness came in.
The flavor was moderately sour with a substantial sweet wheaty bite cutting in on some of the lime/lemon tart to twang punching the saltiness in the face (it's there, it's just extremely faint). Aftertaste was leaning into the wheaty sour edge with a lemon rind-like sour to bitter character.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied as I would think the heftier wheatier body seemed to kick those citrusy and salty flavors back a bit more than expected. I didn't mind for me, though, just something I noticed. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt appropriate. Definitely, the wheat takes control in this feel fairly smoothly and with that little bit of "twang."
Overall, I liked this one for me, but will have to admit, it's a bit different than other North Americanized goses. I'm so used to the normal American ones with more salt. This one seems to have the salt way more subdued with the wheat exceptionally forward. Still, I'd have again, preferably in the Summer.
