This gose pours a medium yellowish orange color with a big fizzy white head. The smell is a little citrusy and a little sweet and malty. The taste is also more malt forward than other beers of this style that I've had. It is only faintly tart with a mild lemon flavor, caramel, grains, and a little salt. The body is medium. I think of a gose as one of the quintessential refreshing summertime styles, but I don't find this all that refreshing actually. In a lot of cases I'm all for malt forward varieties of beers, but I don't think extra malts really help in a gose.

LI loved this beer. Beautiful frosty golden yellow color and a pleasant not harsh butterscotch/citrus smell and taste with a short but delightful follow through. I could drink this every day in the summer. Wish they would keep brewing a few extra months

Poor excuse for a gose; bland taste, meh color...all around a very mediocre example of a beer

On-tap during the 2017 Boston Marathon weekend. Without looking up the style, I wondered if this was a Gose after the first sip. Albeit, nothing out of the park or mind-blowing, but fruity and salty enough with a slight sour presence to notice. I thought it was quite good and enjoyed it. Amount of flavor betrays its lighter feel and body. Might be a proper post-race beer!

Not as much flavour or aroma as compared to the boston lager. Cloudy, short lasting head, good feel. However, not much stands out other than some malt that fades quickly.

Drank this after Boston 2016. Ran a BQ in the heat.

A nice easy drinking beer. Light spice. Wheat. Little fruitiness.

Easy to drink beer. Very refreshing. Lighter bodied.

Decent.

Didn't think this looked or tasted much like a gose. But it was easy drinking and perfect for marathon weekend which it's intended for. The salt is quite subtle and I did not pick up any tartness whatsoever. Still it's a nice easy one to put down and I had more than one.
