Nucleated Tulip
Look: Hazy dark purple color. Pouring a 1 finger head which dissipated into a thin ring and slight sheets
Smell: Trad sour smell with blackberries and some currants. Similar smell to concord grape juice.
Taste: light-med tartness. Tad bit of salt and a little alcohol follows after. Sweet blackberries and currants shine here. The finish is slightly wheaty with some lingering fresh blackberry
Feel: moderate mouthfeel with gentle carbonation
Overall: Taste great, matches the cans description perfectly

This gose has an excellent color and a strong blackberry/currant taste to match. Tastes like a sour liquid jam of sorts. Very enjoyable! Will be getting another 4 pack ASAP.

L - pours a dark, thick, beety red. Strawberry-sauced angel food cake head. Such fluff. Looks great.

S - surprisingly sweet and buttery. Creamy lactose, and every berry in the game. Strawberries, blackberries, and currants. Smells like Creme Savers and blueberry yogurt. Hell of an aroma.

T - now the tartness slides in. Still retains those fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt flavors and is decisively rich. Tangy salt balances pungent flavors of raspberry and boysenberry. Huge lactose creaminess. Blueberry yogurt. Finishes with a nice dryness that sneaks up on you.

F - that yogurt theme continues with this thick cream. Quite a bit of floof in the carbonation with tends a hair toward "overcarbonated", but still manages to retain a reasonably thick body that backs up the flavors quite well.

O - yogurt. In case it wasn't clear. Packs in all the childhood nostalgia of Chobani, Danimals, and fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt (even though we hated that as kids). The gose saltiness adds a nice touch to keep this from getting too over the top. I'm a fan.

A treat for the eye (love the color, even in the head) as well as the palate. Very refreshing and fruity. Nice job!

Pint can, not dated, green dot on bottom - poured into a wine stem at abiut 48F.

Pours the most magnificent deep, opaque ruby red. Like a vile of your blood sitting in a test tube at the hospital when you're being diagnosed with a blown mind after seeing this insane looking beer. Two fingers rose petal pink foamy head sit atop, slowly reducing, but never quite going away.

Nose is a whole bag full of mixed red berries. Strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, cherry, currant, boysenberry, poisonberry, mullberry, etc... a little bit of pale malt action underneath, a little touch of creaminess, that reminds me a lot of lactose beers, and also just also tiny whiff of salt - the way a Gose should be.

Palate greets you immediately with a fairly hefty malt bill. Very atypical of a Gose. The malt base is like that of a fluffy NEDIPA. After the malt sweetness, then the berry character comes in. Definitely interprets as blackberry, and I can see currant too. There's a big pinch of salt, and I like that very much. The hefty malt and fruity berries make sure the salt cannot become overbearing. I keep thinking I'm tasting lactose, but I think it's just the massive malt backbone. It's an odd milky flavor. The tiniest bit of tart zing sits in the mix as well. 0.5 on a sale to 10. Lingering finish of strawberries and cream.

Mouthfeel is thick, soft, and a little creamy. Wet. Not dry at all. It's very heavy for a Gose, especially at less than 5% ABV. The body is what prevents this from being exceptional for me. I want a Gose to be light, crisp, and snappy - something that can almost replace a glass of water on a hit summer day. This is not that. This feels like a big New England double IPA. It's heavy and almost chewy. Comes across like a sour IPA with lactose. In fact, it reminds me so much of HH's Don't Microwave It, Don't Boil It (Boysenberry).

Overall, this one is odd. It's a little salty, yes, but that's about the only Gose trait it has going for it. It's heavy, thick, malty, and it just has this milky off note to it that I find very distracting. I think I'd be slightly less disappointed if this were labeled something else, but it's calling itself a Gose, and therefore, I'm assessing it as such.

Bought a can at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. Beer states is brewed with blackberries and currants. The beer pours with a beautiful dark pink appearance and a medium sized head that shrinks. Little to no lacing. Could smell a slight vanilla aroma wrapped around blackberries and even a blueberry smell. Tart with a slightly berry sweet aftertaste. Lightly creamy texture. Overall, loved the appearance and aromas.
