Neon yellow and semi-translucent in appearance. Smell is strong pineapple, salty hops, some vanilla and other tropical fruit there too. Taste is milder than expected, with oak having a much larger presence than smell indicated. Not sour or tart, rather more acidic in feel, thin and cloying finish. More flavor in the taste as it warms, but still pineapple and oak led

Bottle Date: July 2017
Palate Contaminants: none

The look is light yellow-orange with some medium-fine white head. Not much lacing.

It definitely has oak on the nose. The fruit can best be described as Five Alive that's heavy on the pineapple. Bitter and sweet at levels that balance each other. A little pine.

Taste is much less sweet. It definitely still has the advertised pineapple and oak, but overall it's not as complex as the nose. It's almost... like a strong shandy.

Carbonation is coarse and prickly. Aftertaste matches the taste well, and is even oddly slightly astringent.

Kinda hazy, pale gold, quickly fading head. Smells tart and full of pineapple. Taste is lightly sweet, a little salty. Tastes like a tasty Pina colada. Nice carbonation and a light body. Pretty tasty.

Had this on tap at Seymour in Greenfield, MA. The beer had a thin white head that dissipated quickly leaving a very bright and murky yellow beer. Good fruit aroma with that pineapple mentioned, but a little earthy too. Pretty sweet up front with a sour aftertaste. Great carbonation; very refreshing with a good bite. I really enjoyed the appearance and mouthfeel to this beer.

A: The beer is a little pale and rather hazy yellow in color. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pineapples are present in the nose. Hints of vanilla become perceptible as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is sour and has flavors of pears and pineapples with hints of saltiness towards the finish. There are also slight amounts of vanilla from the oak conditioning.
M: It feels light-bodied and faintly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a pleasant beer for a hot summer today. It's neither too fruity nor too sour.

Bottle.

A: Light baked pineapple, mixed with light stone fruit hop aromas, faint saltiness and oak.

A: Light straw color, hazy, with a light uniform white head that has adequate retention.

T: Moderate pineapple, with pear/stone fruit hop flavor, lightly sour, with faint salt and moderate oak.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; the beer has an interesting oak character that complements the salt and pineapple. However, the beer could be even better with a more assertive pineapple aroma.

Similar pineapple taste and smell to their Pineapple Pop! This one has the sour flavor that Pineapple Pop! lacks, which I think actually makes this one "pop off" in the mouth better. Superior to the Pineapple Pop! because the sour really brings out the pineapple flavor for a winning combo.

Pineapples come through strong, some citrus and fruity malts, lightly tart taste. Light body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall a nice light gose; refreshing and worth checking out if you like pineapples.

22 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A: Small white head that settles to a film. body is a bright yellow with pretty good clarity.

S: pineapple, mango, a little peach, and a little wheat. Smells slightly tart.

T: pineapple is more developed in the taste with less of the other fruits. Slightly tart a little of the juice flavored astringent bitterness on the finish.

M: lighter to slightly medium body, decent carbonation.

O: Not one of my favorite beers from them. It’s still very easy drinking and not bad. But their other beers have more depth this one is pretty straight forward.

with their subtle lacto profile, crisp tartness, and accenting wood ageing, i am prepared to call grimm the current king of the gose! this one is done with pineapple, and its maybe my favorite of the ones i have had from them so far. bright crayon yellow from the bottle, the beer looks like the label, with an active head and bubble concentration and a gorgeous aroma of pineapple, a mix of crushed pineapple from the can and fresh sliced, sweet and tropical and distinct, but also tangy and light enough to even smell refreshing! the flavor is fantastic too, the pineapple is really natural, its juicy and ripe and flavors this quite a lot, but it also is restrained enough that the white wheat can be tasted, and the moderate lactic pucker is still front and center. the pineapple reminds me of some of these new school dry hopping hops, and this almost tastes hoppy, but its more the fruit than anything. the oak softens the acid, which is the real unique feature of this, not a ton of flavor from it, but its brilliant with the pineapple, a light vanilla and white wine quality with the two of them together. excellent carbonation and finishing dryness for how robust and sweet the beer is in the middle. smart recipe and perfect execution. pineapple is awesome in it and the salt level is perfect. i could drink several bombers of this quite happily. huge thanks to my brother for sending this one out my way, grimm is owning this style right now!
