Outstanding
Notes: Poppy’s Moonship is our interpretation of a Leipzig, Germany-inspired Gose. Light funk in the aroma and lemony-tart, Poppy’s features an assertive sourness balanced by sea salt and a malty finish.

4.19/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Canned 4/30/20

Pours a med-large foamy bubbly frothy head with moderate retention, fair bubbles rising to reinforce it, a bit of lacing, mostly clear pale light gold color

Nose brings raw bread dough, wheat-y like doughy malt, light tart sour lacto funk and acidity, a little lemony, some floral coriander

Taste brings more of the raw bread doughy and gristy wheat-y malt base, sourdough bread and creamy mild sour lacto funk with a little lemony note again, hint of salt and mild floral coriander, light acidity, touch of a flemmy finish but fairly dry and clean, a bit of salt kicking in as well

Mouth is lighter bod, higher fizzy carb, light acidity

Overall pretty good, solid gose and better than the one with fruit added which destroyed the base beer.

On tap at the Granite State Brewers Assn. brewfest in Manchester NH on July 25, 2015.

The pour is pale yellow but a bit hazy. Modest white fizzy head.

Vague toasted malts but mainly sour and lemon zest nose.

The body is light and refreshing.

This is a real pucker-up sour wild ale with maybe a touch of salt underneath.

Gose is a brew that I have sought after, particularly with meals, and the Schilling interpretation is excellent:
- Limited head with champagne feel
- Tartness in the nose
- Lovely tartness in the mouth, nice citrus tang
- Crisp champagne feel
- I want another
Well-done!
