A: Pours a relatively clear pale yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and faint pale golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall fizzy foamy white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of moderate aromas of honey dew melon + cantaloupe and light aromas of cucumber over the top of light aromas of slightly sour wheat malts, briny saltiness, and hints of lemon citrus lacto.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of slightly sour wheat malts with minimal amounts of sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of briny saltiness and light to moderate flavors of lemon citrus lacto. Finally there are moderate flavors of honey dew melon + cantaloupe and light flavors of cucumber. No perceptible hop presence and no detectible bitterness but there is a light tartness that lingers through the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and refreshing. Very enjoyable and interesting how the combination of cantaloupe + cucumber come across more as honey dew melon. Definitely one that I would grab again.

16 oz can poured into a willybecher glass.

A: Nice Huge bubbly white head that settles slowly. Body is a slightly hazy tan/yellow.

S: get light hints of cucumber and then apricot, grass, lemon, cantaloupe. The deeper the breath you take the more musk melon you get.

T: the cucumber and cantaloupe collide and you get both and then they almost cancel each other out and you get this refreshing light finish. Very juicy but light.

M: very light nice carbonation juicy yet dry on the finish very mouth watering that could be the salinity.

O: This is an outstandingingly light refreshing fruited veggied Gose. I’d recommend this to anyone.

Personally not a fan of the style, cucumber water is cool, don't really like cantelope...I'm almost angry at how much I liked this beer. Highly recommended
