Had on Friday, August 14 at Prime 16 in New Haven, served in a nonic pint. Poured a cloudy color with a nice golden complexion. Smell is pretty faint, but definitely some sweetness and fruit notes. Really nice flavor, sweet, tart, nice fruit note in the middle of strawberry. Not fake flavored either, and very subtle. Easy to pound a few of these but I went on to other options. Not the best Gose (lacking salt), but a tasty beer.

12 oz pour on tap into a black hog brewing pint glass

A: medium hazy yellowish body not much of a head.

S: slight strawberry, a little wheat, has some acidic tones and a light bit of salt.

T: slight strawberry muddled semi sweet body with no sourness and an odd level of muddled saltiness.

M: medium bodied a tad heavy for the low ABV.

O: Thos is a muddled beer that I wouldn't guess was a Gose if my life depended on it.

The salt addition in this beer is nice for the style, perhaps it could have been just a touch more assertive. Strawberry aroma along with a crackery malt presence are the impressions I was left with. Refreshing and super easy to drink at 3.5% so taking down a few pints on a hot day could be just what the the doctor ordered. Tart finish, like the salt addition and the fruit aromas, is rather subdued. I guess this is sort of like a beginner's gose? Worth trying but not necessarily something you need to make a special trip for.
