Poured into a pokal, the appearance had a bright yellow color with a nice transparency about it. Modest finger's worth of white foamy head sustained appropriately for a good minute before dissipating and left in a respectable time to leave some concave lace.
The aroma had the gose qualities of sour-ed wheat, salt and coriander up front, nice and emphatic. Guava and passion fruit tartness hardens the overall nose to be a bit more complex without overdoing it. Light funk developing as it warms.
The flavor blends sour to the tart with the wheat and the fruitiness running through each other. Saltiness seems to slide into the backbone a bit more here. Super quick aftertaste, really seems almost not there, however, there is just some tart guava/passion fruit, salt and sour-ed wheat.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a good sessionability about it. Sturdy carbonation punching against the sour harshness to end up taming the feel all around. Not much of a finish, but seemed semi-salty with some coriander and guava/passion fruit tartness, touch of dryness.
Overall, very much a gose as in the traditional sense but also bringing in a certain creativity just to ensure this is Schilling's beer. I'd definitely have again.
