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.
