Notes: Aggressively dry hopped with new German aroma hops Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon; orange zest to boost. Lightly toasted white oak provides tannin's and mouthfeel. Assertively tart, with light sea salt appearing on the finish.

The beer comes in a hazy light lemon yellow color.

The aroma punches of candy fruit, tangerine, sweet melon, strawberry, Starburst, lemon seed tart.

The flavor hits of a medium lemon tart quality up front, citrus seeds, surrounded by a very creamy mouthfeel, tangerine, orange zest, light honeydew. Wheat and crackery malt in the middle, the beer then cleans up with a touch of oak, medium minus salt.

Wonderfully nuanced and balanced. Easily one of the best goses I've ever had. Grimm's dry hopped sours have been stellar.

This is quite tart for a gose, which is just fine with me. There is a pleasant amount of funk from the nose, and the tartness in the taste is pleasantly balanced by the hops. I really enjoyed this quite a lot.

Poured from a bottle dated June 2015, into an HFB goblet.
A - Murky, lemon drop, haze allows for light to dance through. Carbonation is gently feeding a quickly dissipating cap.
S - Ripe melon, tangerine and lemongrass, wheat, dry grain and a hint of salt.
T - Wow, what a treat, the additions of orange and the dry hopping with the new German variety are welcoming in so many ways. The orange and the salinity work quite well. The offering does not stray to far from Gose but clearly stretches into the citrus world.
F - Delicate and uniform feel. Dry finish, with just enough of the carbonation leaving a light citrus calling card.
O - What a treasure, this works so well. The use of the orange and the very melon forward hops balanced against the salinity are to be relished.
Worth seeking out.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store, in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a super funky looking color, almost a pastel orange, with a creamy, foamy head, about half an inch, with a good amount of lacing.

This one smells so good, I get aromas of tart orange juice, sea salt, grapefruit, and a good amount of stinging tartness.

This one tastes just so good, lively, and bright. Super juicy, lots of orange, orange zest, and grapefruit. The saltiness is pretty intense, but really refreshing. This is probably the most sour a Grimm beer has been so far, about a 6 out of 10. This is so complex, it's amazing.

This is medium bodied, and insanely juicy and nicely tart in the mouthfeel, with a moderate level of carbonation.

This is utterly insane and super tasty. I love it and I love Grimm.

A but too overcarbonated - a hazy, almost milky, yellow pour with a slight greenish tinge. Head fades to spotty lacing. Aroma and taste have that distinctive mandarina profile that I, personally, love; mandarin oranges, apricots, honeyed, pineapple juice with an intense herbal followthrough ... like you're chewing on the leaves and rind of a pineapple. Oak comes through in the lingering finish.
