A: Poured into a tulip to a light straw yellow that's a little hazy topped by a dense two finger white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with some lacing
S: Smells of nice dry hopped citrus rind notes, some light sourness, a touch of oak and some slight sharpness
T: Taste is nice citrus rind up front with some grapefruit juice notes as well. Nice light sourness throughout the drink too. Hints of salt and some slight cracker malt to provide some balance every now and then. Swallow is more light sourness, some oak, a little salt and some lingering citrus juice.
M: This beer is fairly light in body with a nice feel on the palate. It is not watery but is close to that point. Carbonation is present and effervescent while the beer has a drying finish.
O: Overall this one is really nice. I like what the dry hopped flavors do to the beer and this beer has some great balance to it. Nice and tart but not super sour with enough other stuff going on to keep it interesting even at the low ABV. Definitely worth a try.

Bought a bottle at Ryan and Caseys in Greenfield. Appearance is a murky straw yellow with no head. Lemon zest aromas were sensed with some metallic florals. Bitter and salty taste but nothing so overwhelming to make it unpleasant. Nice carbonation. Overall, good aromas and mouthfeel.

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color ale with a nice white foamy head. Aroma of tropical fruit with nice hoppy undertones and delicate tart notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some tropical fruit notes with nice hoppy undertones and delicate tart notes. Body is about average with nice level of carbonation. Nice level of complexities with great amount of drinkability.

Golden turning to straw color upon pour with an effervescent lighter head dissipating quickly into mildly citrus notes opaquely grounded into the slightly tart but smooth taste of the Grimm Gose, one of their signature profiles, encapsulated by nutty oak notes.

This beer pours a completely opaque, very cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger, soapy white head. Retention is above average for the style and there is lots of chunky spotted lacing left on the glass.

Smell is very bright and fruity with mango, melon and tangerine being the most prominent. There is also a bit of citrus acidic tartness and oak.

Taste is the same. Very fruity and juicy, but rounded out nicely by the lemon tart flavor. Only about a 3.5 out of 10 on the pucker scale. The touch of oak in the background adds a little bit of complexity as well.

Feel is light and juicy up front with some prickliness on the finish. Light side of moderate carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Overall this is a great beer. Very bright and flavorful, yet nicely balanced. Not my favorite Grimm sour personally, but still very enjoyable.

this is exactly the kind of thing these guys do the best. they are really taking the berliner and the gose types to the next level, and this is one of their better ones, although i must admit, it doesnt taste or feel as oaky as some of their others, and i thought the wood aspect here was a bit underdeveloped on the whole, but i dont end up missing it much, as this is so summery and bright and fresh i would hate to have it weighted down by anything like that. it almost has a fresh lemonade complexion to the nose and taste, citrusy for sure from the hops, and its about that tart, not as sour as some of their others, but with a pucker equivalent to a good lemonade, and that really brings the citrus out of the hops for me. its incredibly aromatic and light, pillowy headed and fluffy feeling, dry and well carbonated, hoppy but not bitter at all, and juicy without being messy. this seems more delicate and refined than almost any in its class, and while grimm continues to pump these out, it seems like they are all different enough to stand alone. this was a generous gift from a neighbor, and i am very thankful to have had this. really the essence of summertime in a very complete gose!

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 5/2017. Pours moderately hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of huge lightly tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, guava, berry, mango, melon, orange peel, sea salt, brine, oak, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, floral, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops, fruity/acidic yeast, oak, and moderate pale malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge lightly tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, guava, berry, mango, melon, orange peel, sea salt, brine, oak, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, floral, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate lactic tartness; and light herbal/grassy bitterness and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, guava, berry, mango, melon, orange peel, sea salt, brine, oak, pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, bread dough, herbal, floral, grass, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops, fruity/acidic yeast, oak, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from tart/bitter/spiciness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy, fairly acidic/saline, and lightly sticky/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is fantastic gose! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops, fruity/acidic yeast, oak, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly tart/acidic finish. This is unlike any gose I have had before, but I love it. Insanely vibrant and dank on hops/fruity yeast character; nice solid levels of acidity, oak, and salt; with a balancing pale/wheat malt backbone. A highly enjoyable offering.
