Since I spent a couple/few days celebrating CANada Day on 01 July, it only seems right & fitting to spent this four-day weekend drinking, reviewing & rating AmeriCAN-owned & made beers. I am beginning today with the theme of fruit-adjuncts. Cheers!

From the CAN: "Lemon Chiffon Gose"; "Test Your Taste". I will be reviewing this as a Leipzig Gose with a ChANge Request sent.

I did some in-CAN CANgitation before Crack!ing open the vent so as to ensure that any flocculate was in suspension. Following the Crack!, I went with a heavy-handed Glug to form a rolling, fizzy, foamy, soapy finger of bone-white head that faded as quickly as I poured. Bye! Color was a slightly-hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose smelled like the way that Goses should always smell, IMHO! Salty & lemony, like lemonade out on the weatherdecks while underway.

I was never a huge fan of the military lifestyle, but I LOVED getting underway! Nothing like it before or since & I would love to find some way to do a cruise again. The salt spray, the salt air, it was all a great feeling. We were not supposed to take food from the Mess Decks, but drinks were authorized. Coffee, iced tea, lemonade, all of it, usually out on the fantail, smoking cigars & telling sea stories of inport visits. Mmm, what a life!

Mouthfeel was kinda thin & watery, but such is the nature of the style. CAN't dun them too hard as a result. The taste struck a VERY pleasant balance between salty and lemony-tartness. Both were easily discernible & quite tasty as a result. Finish was dry, as adding salt to beer is wont to do, never mind lemon juice! It was quite thirst-quenching on this hot, humid Summer's day, but one was satiating. YMMV.
