Very cool gose. Key lime through and through. Sour notes but not mouth-puckering. Vanilla comes through mid-sip but lime keeps it at bay during the finish. Had a 5oz. pour as a change-of-pace beer.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Green Session. Golden orange color. Aroma has lime, fruit syrup, cola and some medicinal notes. Taste is tart, fruity and dry with some cola notes. Easy drinking and refreshing.

3.44/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong lime, bacterial funk, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Berliner Weissbier. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There was also a noticeable tartness. Tastes of strong lime, bacterial funk, hint of sugar, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, strong lime and tartness, but lacking in complexity and appearance.

On tap at the brewery, Portland.
Hazy pale gold with ring. 4
Oily lime curd. 4.25
Thread of wheat, 11 kinds of lime, and that’s it! 3.5
Light, oily, crisp. 3.75

All lime, no pie. No vanilla, no brown sugar, never mind Pumpking-style pie crust. Also too unctuous to work as a quencher. Fail. 3.5
