Light copper in color with a half inch of creamy bright white. Heavy lacing. The aroma is of sea salt an lactobacilius. The flavor mirrors the aroma with plenty of sea salt and light grains. The mouth is very salinic, dry, crisp, and refreshing.

16 ounce can, looks like 2/10/18 is stamped on the bottom of the can but it's smudged so I can't tell for sure. Can says 5.1% ABV. Served in a Ritterguts Gose glass, the beer pours a reddish/orange color with a huge light orange/pink head. Had to let this one settle a while before I could drink it. Decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but somewhat light, the brew smells like hibiscus, coriander, salt, and some tropical fruitiness. Luckily the taste has a lot more kick to it. There's hibiscus, blood orange, coriander, salt, lime, tropical fruit and bready malt flavors all noticeable. Good amount of tartness in this one. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and easy to drink with a lot of soft carbonation. Definitely worth a try, I know I'd drink this again given the chance! $4.04 for a single can.

A big thanks out to Joe for this beaut.
Batch 366 from a 500mL bottle.

Ruby's Tears pours a bold grapefruit juice orange, and a volcano of bubbly white foam erupts up the glasses entirety. Once relieved, it settles as a nice little cap with spotty patches left behind.

Once again, the color might imply where this beer is headed. Grapefruit and blood orange juices dominate, with a salty ocean breeze and damp earth to support it. A pleasant barn house funk about it peaks out from the depths.

This one is not for the salt or sour timid. A wonderful blend really, and the flavor and feel are expressed together as one. There is a salty buoyancy about it, with very tart lemon, lime, and pink grapefruit flavors that burst and make every inch of the mouth and cheeks pucker. It ends sharp, and dry, with bubbles foaming all around.

Ruby's Tears is an experience more than just a beer. It's wonderfully refreshing, pleasantly unique, yet simple and satisfying in the best of ways. I would welcome this any time the unquenchable craving for an easy drinking tart and salty beer arises, which is surprisingly pretty often.

Thanks again Joe! Cheers.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a weizen glass. Had an amber / pink color and a slightly hazy texture. There was a two inch, foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not much lacing, though.

S: A decent, but not spectacular, aroma of citrus fruit, a floral element, salt, and malt.

T: Tasted of a mild amount of salt (less than in normal goses), a bit of malt (particularly in the finish), the aforementioned floral quality - advertised hibiscus, a hint of coriander, and some citrus (lemon and lime). In general, this is a decent flavor, though it may be too subtle for its own good. Not bad, though.

F: A solid amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Ruby's Tears is a solidly, easy to drink beer. Not fantastic, but drinkable nonetheless.

Pours a cloudy pink/orange color. 3/4 inch head of an off-pink color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of salt, pale malt, citrus hops, floral, and a hint of spruce. Fits the style of a Gose. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with a low carbonation level. There is also a slight dryness. Tastes of salt, pale malt, citrus hops, floral, slight wheat, and a hint of spruce. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Poured from the can into a wheat ale glass. Good till Jan 26th 2018?

Pale pink like amber with a good solid orange body color. Slightly frothy head off pink, to light white in color, and fine bubbled with a good tall three fingers. Pretty aggressive even for a gose but in control.

Slight hints of floral notes on the nose, but a sort of spicy/sweet caramel seems to really pop out. Some hints of brine like quality too which seems to mix in quite a bit strangely. Decent if a bit odd with this noticeable sweetness.

Fairly tasty palate. A grapefruit light tone in the mid palate with a touch of chewy malt and salt. Finishes with excellent bready depth and dough like qualities with a nice tang of brine and faint sourness. Excellent body and depth with classic refreshing quality. Finishes slightly tropical as well it seems and much of the hinted sweetness is luckily left the premises.

A bit out there on the nose, but added ingredients seemed to have driven well, with a superb feeling palate. Nice brew.
