The beer is a pink color that is a bit off-putting and definitely looks more like a soda than a beer. The smell is mostly raspberry with a hint of lemon zest. Taste was also more like a soda with just a hint of sourness. If you are looking for a beer that really doesn't seem like one this is a good candidate. Reminded me more of an alcopop than beer and probably would appeal to lots of different drinkers. However it's not a BAD flavor press, just not very beery. I thought it was nice on a very hot day in Palm Springs, but would I like it in another setting? Maybe, maybe not. Worth a try and an offer to less beer-inclined friends.

Slightly hazy rose' color on the pour with a couple of fingers of tight foamy pink head that is audibly crackling down.

Raspberry and citrus come forward on the scent. Back notes of some white bread like yeast smells. Every now and than a faint hint of salt coming up.

Very light on the raspberries and lemon, just seems to tickle the palate mid tongue. Definitely a tart taste balanced by a very nice bit of salt. Seems like the salt is very light but just there to finish off the tart at the back of the mouth. Also getting some of that white Wonder bread taste as well.

Mouth feel is very light and crisp. Lots of prickly carbonation. Finish is dry, crisp and refreshing.

Very good beer! For a Gose I have to say it fits well within the style. All of the elements are there along with a great taste. The body is unusual as it seems as light as a Coors Light but with a ton more of flavor. If I could I would seriously buy several cases of this and keep some cold ones on hand for our up coming hot months here in Las Vegas. This beer would be a great thirst quencher on those scorching days. Cheers to Left Hand!

Pours a clear ruby grapefruit colour. Smells tart and fresh; raspberry juice and a hint of salted lemon. Tastes clean light and refreshing; perfect for a summer day. Juicy light-medium body overall. Raspberries, slightly saline hose profile, and a semidry clean finish. Faint bittering after palate. Not much to it but it's tasty.

Appearance - Pours cloudy red with a thin cola like head that quickly dissipates to a thin cap. Few spots of lacing.

Aroma - Big raspberry and lemon peel, light salt and lactose. Slightly tart sweet nose.

Taste - Raspberry is lighter than the nose, not much lemon, the salt is there with just a touch of lemon.

Feel - Light bodied good carbonation slightly dry finish.

Overall - The nose was great tons of raspberry the taste feel a little short and was a little watered down.

Best by December 31st can.

Omg...the raspberry smell on first whiff has me hooked. Lemon and the expected wheat are added pluses.

Raspberries, wheat, a nice level of salt, mild lemon, so tasty.

Good mouthfeel, almost gets to the watery side but not quite. Whew.

The look is the very first thing that impressed me. Raspberry coloured, hazy, nice pinkish head of foam.

Would buy this again, no problem.

Nice strong gose flavor but just enough raspberry & lemon that you can taste them but they don't become overpowering. Very drinkable.

It looks redder than expected. Everything else seems like what I'd expect in a lemon raspberry gose.

Poured from a can. Dark reddish in color with a small head and some lacing. Strong smell of raspberry. Flavor is raspberry with a small touch of sour. This is just the right amount of flavor and sour.

Brilliant red color. Smell of raspberries and not much else. Has a tart, fruity raspberry flavor. Medium light carbonation. Very refreshing beer. Delicious.

Looks like pink seltzer water, smells like raspberries and lemon, tastes like raspberry lemon seltzer water. Slightly tart with just a hint of wheat. One of the least "beery" beers I've ever had, even for a light fruited sour. Not bad, just not much of a beer.
