The clear pale golden colored beer pours out into a Duvet glass with a 1” fluffy white head the recedes visibly to leave an pattern of lacing and foam on the sides of the glass. Before long the thin cap of foam becomes a thin irregular island of foam and then disappears entirely. At first, sipping creates some widely scattered irregular patches of lacing.

The aromas include some lime and salt along with a bit of wheat in the background.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with good bit of lime, a hint of lime zest, some salt and just a bit of sweetness from the crackery malt. The tartness is definitely present but does not conceal the other flavors until the ending.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied, slightly prickly and crisp from the finely bubbled carbonation. The finish begins as the sweetness disappears behind the tartness while the lime slowly disappears in the tart, dry ending that has just a hint of salt.

Overall I thought this beer was reasonably well made but think it is just a bit boring. I’m planning to have a repeat (and revisit this review) while finishing off the 6 pack. The beer is refreshingly tart and goes well on a warm summer evening. That all said, I prefer the aroma/flavor profile of the Dogfish Head Sea Quench so I’ll probably not be buying this Gose again.

Limey Gose - Victory
Sour Ale - 4.7% abv

L - 1-finger bright white head atop an almost-transparent yellow body.

S - lime, salt, something sweet, some spice.

T - spicy, salted lime. I’m not sure of the exact spice used here but it’s quite prominent. Not really getting “key lime” though. No bitterness. Low sweetness. No booziness.

F - light bodied with high carb.

O - I am quite thankful this didn’t turn into a sugary beer, but it’s a rather pedestrian gose compared to others in this area.

Had on tap, 2016 keg. Very sour, strong lime aroma and flavor with a slight hint of saltiness. The only thing missing is a graham cracker crust and we'd have key lime pie. Delicious.

Pours a cloudy lemon golden, white sudsy lacing for a head.

Smells of lemon-lime with a hint of brine and cracker.

Lime flavor over saltine cracker malt, sea salt, and a lactic acid finish.

Light body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Very tasty gose with a welcome mild saltiness. Not nearly the tartest gose I've had, but refreshingly tart nonetheless and worth a grab since this is a limited offering. Find it while you have the chance if you want a light refreshing tart brew.

Bright, biting, limey tartness. Just about perfectly tart and endlessly crushable. Remarkably full, chalky body suggests plenty of wheat in the grain bill. Finishes really crisp and dry. Great beer.

I tried this on tap at Union Beer house,served chilled in a glass.

The color is pale golden with light haze and thick white head with fine bead, lace clings with good retention.
The smell has a fruity and citrus aroma with apparent lime smell and light sour odor. The feel is great tangy yet not too tart, effervescent with mild sweetness and mineral dryness as it finishes with a lingering astringent citrus tang.

64 oz growler poured into a pint glass

A- A hazy golden straw color with a three finger white head.

S- Limes, some salt, hints of wheat.

T- Limes, lime zest/rinds, salt, hints of wheat, touch of lacto. Definitely lot of lime.

M- Smooth, crisp, light body.

O- A tasty Gose, exactly what I feel a lime gose should taste. Very easy to drink, would love to see this in cans or bottles.
