This beer/Gose was sent to me by a friend in Ohio. I thought it was a very good Gose.

Look: semi-clear red-purple, with a half-inch pink head.

Aroma: blackberries

Taste: The taste is wheat & barley, black berries, allegedly Marion Berry (I have not had Marion Berry before), but there's definitely black berry and perhaps other berries. It's tart, fizzy, a bit sweet but not too much.

Feel: it’s light, Crisp, refreshing

Poured from a 16 can from the taproom

It is a reddish purple color. Looks a little bit like cranberry juice. It is very turbid with a lot of floaties. Very fizzy, soda like head that dissipated rapidly.

It smells like dark berries (black and raspberry), salt, and kind of vinegary. When it warms up, some wheat and bready barely comes through.

It is tart, but not super sour. A sour blackberry with a hint of sugar. There is some acidic notes and a little bit of saltiness. A decent lingering wheat flavor.

It has a crisp carbonation, is lighter bodied, and is pretty soft and dry finishing from the salt.

While not a textbook version of a Gose that is also too fruit forward, this is still a very enjoyable beer that reminds me of Mad Tree Shade.

This beer is part of Platform's 12 Kettle sours series of 12 releases in 12 months. Poured out a 16 oz. can into a stange glass, this beer pours a cloudy/hazy deep, medium red color. I haven't too many, if any, beers with this color scheme before. Has a pink, fizzy head that while initially being about an inch thick when first poured, fizzes like the type of foam head one gets when one pours oneself a glass of soda pop. Interesting. Head dissipates very quickly to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass along with little bits of surface coating of foam. Barely any lacing. Aromas of some bready malts, black berries, and bit of musty barnyard funk from the yeast no doubt. Has a somewhat bready malt flavor along with some definite wheat that gives way to some blackberry sourness, a nice saltyness, and a hint of musty, barnyard funk. I really like the flavor profile here. This one stands out in a good way from other Goses that I've had. Has a crisp, yet smooth, slightly prickly, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish with a slightly dry aftertaste. The flavors really linger nicely on the inside of my mouth and tongue after each sip. I quite enjoyed this one.

M: Light-bodied, tart
O: This tastes great now, very refreshing, hopefully it will stay fresh through summer as I'd love to enjoy one on a hot day

Unique and has the full on gose flavor going on. Aroma is wild yeast, and taste is sour, salty and raspberry. Slightly bigger mouthfeel than expected considering the low ABV.
