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!

Look is like a NEIPA with a frothy white head. Good retention and spotted lacing throughout.
Smell is rich of sweet pineapple, citrus and lemond rind.
Tastes like a tart and funky pineapple juice.
Feel is effervescent and slight dry in the back.
Overall a good gose that i would buy again. I almost gave up on Grimm from some of their previous terrible offerings but now i will be trying more of their beers.

A beautiful fall hazy yellow color with a slight head and decent lacing. A slight tarty pineapple hint with a rich citrus balance. Tartness with pineapple and citrus accents, light and very pleasant. Light and refreshing. Overall a very nice pineapple variation gose as it is well balanced with a nice subtle character.

Light fizzy head, creamy, little lacing, murky yellow

Nose big tart pineapple, generic bright citrus, lime, tropical almost passion fruit, tangerine, creamy wheat, grassy floral hop

Taste brings tartness, tons of pineapple juice, fresh pineapple, tart acidic notes not huge, salt on the back end, creamy wheat, little tropical passion fruit like and generic citrus tangerine lime almost. Finish dry little tart acidic, huge pineapple

Mouth is lighter bod, decent creamy malt, light acidity

Decent for gose, but pineapple just destroys everything, if you want pineapple juice with some gose poured on top this is your beer.

On bottle:
July, 2017
Gose Ale Brewed With Pineapple And Conditioned On Oak
Best Served At 40-45 Degrees F.

Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a slightly hazy pale yellow body with minimal lacing. Nose of pineapple and citrus, with aroma of oak after warming. Taste mirrors nose with salt on the finish. Fairly good feel for a Gose and overall an interesting take on a fruited version of the style, although I had a bit of trouble picking up on much of the oak until after it warmed up. Very refreshing as well. Cheers!
