A: A hibiscus key lime tint. It's a stormy looking, greyish yellow. Head retention is non-existent. It was white and tight while it lasted though.

S: Rose hip, eucalyptus oil, sea salt, honey and faint citrus marmalade. Sweetness really blossoms as it warms.

M: It has promising tingle of salt initially. But then it comes out a little flat as it doesn't seem to hold onto it's carbonation very well, which combined with the wheat malt yields a thicker, slimey texture/body.

T: Moderately tart perceived as salted lime and lemon herbal tea. Dare I say it has some orange blossom honey graham cracker sweetness to it. The malt rather than orange citrus gives runs away with the sweetness.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/5/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, red/green apple, sea salt, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, orange peel, salt, pale malt, blossom water, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of tart lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, red/green apple, sea salt, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness; light fruit/wheat tang, and herbal/citrus peel bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, red/green apple, sea salt, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, orange peel, salt, pale malt, blossom water, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance; and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tang/tartness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, creamy/grainy/acidic, and lightly saline/sticky/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a delicious Gose. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, orange peel, salt, pale malt, blossom water, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; with the modestly lactic/tangy/drying finish. Great balance between the Lacto, orange peel, blossom water, and sea salt; with a nice malt backbone to balance acidity. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip glass:

Appearance: pours a thin-looking, completely translucent yellow color, with a head that turns from one-finger white bubbles to nothing in a blink of an eye. Not a bad thing, of course, in the case of a gose.

Aroma: subtle here, lots of salt, but I don't get as much from the orange blossoms or orange zest as I'd like. Very lightly tart, not overwhelming or puckering at all.

Taste: again, lots and lots of salt, which I love in a gose. The orange and citrus flavor is super slight, but present nonetheless. Tastes a little wheat-y as well, not sure what the malt bill was here. Somewhere about a 3-4 out of 10 on the tartness scale. Nice.

Feel: crisp at first, but a little softer than I'd like on the finish. Still, it's refreshing and light.

Overall: this is a nice, solid gose. Not overwhelmingly awesome in any one area, but goses aren't meant to be super pungent in aroma or flavor. Refreshing and yummy.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12oz can poured into a stange
A: Pale light orange with a thin head that quickly settles
S: Orange, orange blossom, salt water and a hint of wheat
T: Orange juice, orange soda, saline and a hint of herbs
M: Light-bodied, a bit sour/salty
O: This nails the style with its sour/salty notes but it's also light and refreshing- just an all around tasty beer and makes for a great summer session

2.11/5  rDev -45.9%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Look: Transparent yellow. No head retention.

Smell: Something sour, bread mold, and some type of kitchen cleaner.

Taste: It's tart, and has a slick mouthfeel. Faint oranges. Heavier on the hose-water, or hard country well-water.

Feel: Thin with not enough carbonation.

Overall: To put it bluntly, this is a weak representation of the gose style, the oranges go without any notice. It's not the worst beer I've had, but it's in the bottom half. I will be passing on this one in the future.
