Notes: This lively gose brings the tart flavor of key lime pie, sprinkled with sea salt into a zesty sour lime bier.

Brew is a very pale yellow, hazy and translucent, topped by a sizeable snow white head. Good retention.

Sour, slightly funky nose, featuring lime, melon, milk, and must. Something else not quite identifiable.

Very, very tart on the palate, with tons of very nice, organic key lime flavor! The gose sourness is really overwhelmed by the limes, and the salt is similarly present but overshadowed. Very light and natural sweetness.

Moderately puckering, smooth, oily, and lively. Drinks bigger than a 4.7% ABV brew.

This is a very nice and refreshing beer!

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Bottom of can is stamped 'ENJOY BY: 12 NOV 2018'.
Slightly cloudy, straw colored body. Thin fizzy head upon pouring disappears, leaving a couple of islands and a thin ring. No lacing.
Aroma is lime tart, with a whiff of salinity.
Taste is tart, veering toward sour, with lime, and some minor salinity.
Medium mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Sour refresher with strong lime flavors and the addition of salt. Tart and salty, and refreshing.

I am not sure I completely get the sour beer craze. I mean, you could just poor lime into your beer and it might come out the same. This was pretty good, but not complex in any way. It is salty, sour lime and that's about it. It was pretty tastey though.

Pale yellow in color with a light hazy appearance. Poured with a tall, soapy, bright white foam moderate retention. Aromas of fresh lime rinds and light wheat malt. Light bodied with high carbonation. Tart, puckering lime flavors right out of the gate that allow wheat malt and saltiness to peak through as the tartness tapers. But  it doesn't taper much as this finished tartly with light wheat followed by lingering lime flavors. Tart, crisp, flavorful and easy drinking for those that enjoy the style.

This beer pours a pale straw with a small head. The aroma features mild malts and strong tart flavors, with notes of both lime juice and lime peel. The flavor is bright and clear, with loads of fresh lime flavor, and a solid hit of salt on the finish. The mouthfeel is light, with bright carbonation. Overall this is a superb, bold, refreshing sour.

12 oz. can poured into a tulip glass.

L---Very pale golden color. Somewhat hazy. A pure white head faded to a cap very quickly and left minimal lacing.

S---Tart. Very tart. Heavy lime aroma. You can tell it's a sour. Some yeast/breadiness in the background.

T---Lime is front & center. Tart. First sip was very salty. Succeeding sips were less so.

F---A considerable amount of pucker. Otherwise light and appropriate for summer. Quenching.

O---Very nice flavored sour. Exactly as advertised. Wish I bought more.

Slightly cloudy and a bit light on the golden color scale. One finger of tight packed bubbles that crackle away forming a nice white head.

Sweet white bread, Kings Hawaiian Bread on the nose. Also picking up lots of lime! Really like the lime smell I get. Smells like a piece of key lime pie!

Taste is very tart and sour on tons of lime! . Very nice saltiness that pops up front.

Mouth is somewhat sticky but light and crisp on the finish. The tartness on the back end of the mouth makes you dive in for another sip.

Loving it! I love a quality Gose style bier and that is exactly what you are getting here! The lime is crushing it and that saltiness goes so well. On the flavor the key lime pie does not really follow the smell. While I get key lime on the nose the flavor is more like a salted lime you are going to suck down with a tequila shot. Now that might be something fun to try with this one, a shot and a Gose together? At $11.99 a six pack I may pick one more up before these beers go away and we are flooded with pumkin beers. Cheers!

Popped in after walking for a while on a hot day for a pint. Did exactly what it was supposed to do and what I needed. Nice & refreshing with just the right amount of tang. Very enjoyable.

Simple yet effective, the brewers at Victory quenches the summer thirst with a German styled sour wheat ale that achieves a moderate tone of tartness as prescribed traditionally by the style and spiced with sea salt as well as a dash of coriander for brightness and lightness.

Pale straw and cloudy in its appearance, Limey Gose sheds a white and racy froth that eventually succumbs to the acidity within. Radiant aromas of lime leads the way along with a backdrop of citrus, cider, wine and dough. That doughy character carries onto the tongue with the sweetness of pastry, tartlet, saltwater taffy and sourdough.

The middle palate shows a recession of both sweetness and breadiness in favor for the growth of acidity that easily erases the thirst from the mouth, laying tracks of bold lime, green apple, lemon, gooseberry, white grape and an aura of under ripened orange in its wake. Shy on bitterness, the ale allows the tartness to govern its balance while a late palate of mild salinity gives the flavors roundness and pulls the various flavor components together.

Medium light in body, the beer has the classic sourness level of gose, but its body seems somewhat lighter than usual. Moderate acidity is heightened by the bitterness and tang of lime while a slight earthiness of wheat germ couples with the overwhelming character of key lime pie for a beer that satisfies on all fronts.

Pale straw, nice fluffy head, champagne carbonation. Aroma is pretty subtle with lime, not overdone at all & works well with the tart wheat. Taste is pretty similar- almost to a fault! I kinda just wanted a teeny bit more lime brightness, but I respect the restraint. The base gose is classical and done very well. Crisp and light, not too tart.

Aroma is lime, wheat grain and tart fruit. The flavor is lime, tropical fruit /pineapple/mild mango, wheat and a tart/medium sweet/slightly sugary finish.
