Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City Brewing goblet.

A: Mildly hazy, very light gold to yellow. This is exceptionally clear for the style. Tons of visible carbonation, and a one-finger white head with very good retention.

S: Moderately funky (definitely more than a lot of goses), lactic tartness, earthy and minerally. A bit savory, with a bigger citric acid lemony bite. Very light two row malts and mild wheat grist.

T: Tart lemons, minerally and salty. Citric acid tartness, Lactobacillus funk. Cracker malts, again with a backer of wheat husk – but not at all objectionable. Salinity and citric tartness last into the hang and it ends up finishing pretty dry.

M: A light body, though heavier than some in style. Lots of carbonation sensation, and no alcohol to speak of.

O: This was really good, though a bit different take on a gose. Heavier on the funk, more balanced in the sour. But the salinity is obvious without being obnoxious – there’s no doubt as to the style in the flavor. Quite enjoyable, though I still think I would prefer a few others (Rapp and Westbrook come to mind).

Hazy golden apricot with a foamy white head that settles to a thin layer.

Smell is very powerful lemon-lime and salt--this is a straight up margarita baby!

Taste is a little barnyard funk with super tart, salty lemon lime, big time. The saltiness can't be understated here--this margarita has one thickly salted rim! They may have gone a tad overboard but I think it works here.

Lots of froth on the palate.
