Poured from can into tulip, good 2 finger cream colored soapy head, fades quickly, good lacing. Pale opaque golden in the glass. Smells slightly funky, getting raw egg and raw cucumber on the nose, slight lime. Taste is initially straight up cucumber water with a twist of lime. This flows into a nice salinity in the middle, and finish with a sharp tartness. This beer is literally the shit. It has a clean finish, with a little residual salinity and tartness on the palate. The tartness is really tame, this is just simply the best Gose I have ever had. The balance of this beer is simply incredible. Had a six pack of these down in Florida and I had a taste and was floored, but left it to my daughters to finish. Just unpacked a box and found one of these left over. I was thinking I must have remembered wrong, but no, it is that good

Appearance - Pours semi cloudy yellowish color with nice white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film. No lacing

Aroma - Huge raw cucumber aroma along with lime. The salt is coming out as well, it really smells like a fresh picked cucumber that has been salted.

Taste - The tasty follows the aroma spot on. There is a little more salt at the beginning and the end with the meat of the cucumber in the middle. This thing has the perfect amount of both cucumber flavor and salt. The lime is present as well and plays well with the other flavors.

Feel - Light bodied tart salty slightly puckering finish.

Overall - I am not sure what I would change about this amazing flavors great balance.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a hazed, straw-hued body. There's a slight, small white head, but it fizzles out fairly quickly.

Smell: It's like smelling fresh-cut cucumber. The cucumber is the primary component of the aroma, leaving you some work to smell past it to detect the far, far subtler lime, wheat and even the lactic qualities.

Taste: Slender wheat with a very modest hint of sweetness, stirred up with rock salt and lime juice. Then, as with the aroma, it's a big wallop of cucumber, like guzzling the run-off waters from a Ruby Tuesday's salad bar. And, for me, it's this aggressive cucumber taste that hampers the overall flavor, quickly taking over the remaining lime, salt and lactic-laced wheatiness. Shoo, cucumbers! Shoo!!

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Reasonably crisp.

Overall: Like a lazy sushi bar menu, it's all cucumber.

Poured into a snifter. Hazy golden color with a frothy white head that left quickly. Huge cucumber aroma. Some earthy notes and wheat, but dominated by the cuke. More balanced on the palate, with a nice blend of cucumber, tart lime, salt, and some spicy coriander. Dry and clean. Really interesting and enjoyable.

Can dated 6/6/17 poured into Lexan tulip. Deep yellow, or golden with white head that recedes quickly. Nose is first-soft cucumber, some lime. Taste is where this shines (and the nose was pretty awesome). New dill pickle, brininess, lime, crackers, and then more cucumber. I love pickles. This is perfect. Drinkability is huge on a hot summer day.

This is the best Creature Comforts beer. It is absolutely perfect. If you want a summer beer, this is it. I don't even like cucumbers but it's so refreshing. It's light, crushable, smells amazing, and tastes perfect.

May be my favorite sour ever.
