4.14/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours cloudy and golden colored, with a white head that dissipates quickly

Smell: Orange aromatics with a hint of coriander

Taste: Tart orange, from the outset, with acetic character developing; after the swallow, the salt and coriander make an appearance

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with high carbonation; had to give it a good swirl

Overall: A very nice gose that uses the fruit very effectively

750 mL bottle. The top of the bottle shattered upon opening, so to safely drink the bottle took some doing. Filtered through an unbleached coffee filter into a Pyrex measuring glass. As a result, there is no head. Smells of orange and wheat, but mostly orange. Tastes of orange. Orange peel and oil, like a muddled orange peel. Wheat and a little mineral flavor. Light with low carbonation, surely from the pouring process. Kinda nice, but not exceptional and it took a great deal of effort to try it.

Pours a very effervescent bronze with a sliver of fast-falling beige colored head. No head retention or lacing

S: Lemon sweet tart, not much else

T: Orange & lemon sweet tarts, a little salt up front. Tartness, lemon & orange peels as this warms & saltyness. Finishes a little salty, citrusy, tart & a little dry

MF: Light/medium body, slight carbonation, dryness

Pretty darn drinkable, they did real good on this style!

This beer was very well crafted. There is plenty of citrus, salty, and sour aromas immediately. The flavor of the beer is amazing. The best way to describe it would be a blend of an orange julius with a gose. The flavors match perfectly with each other with the salty tartness sourness form the gose and the sweet citrus from the orange. This is a must have for sour beer fans.

750ml bottle. 3/8/16 bottle date. Appearance: Cloudy pale golden, with a white head that dissipates quickly. Appears to have strong carbonation. Aroma: Strong, distinct orange citrus with a light lactic acid and coriander Taste: Wow. Light, orange citrus and malt sweetness that aggressively turns to a sharp acidic sour. Just a touch of salty coriander and orange peel on the finish. Quite a bit of complexity for the style. Combination of orange peel and high acidity is reminiscent of a fresh lemon. Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a high carbonation. Finish: Lingering sharp lactic acid and orange peel. Overall: Best gose I’ve had by far, mainly because I prefer the higher acidity versions of the style. May be too acidic for style, but has an amazing complexity of orange peel, coriander, and acidity that isn’t found in most fairly one dimensional Goses. Highly recommend this one for sour fans.

Deep gold to copper in color with no head and excellent carbonation. The aroma is of salt and orange zest. I taste an exceptional blend of orange zest and lactic acid. Very well balanced. The mouth is highly carbonated and crisp.

Poured from a 750ml into a long stem wine glass. L: fizzy head fades to nothing nearly instantly. Cloudy, apricot peach color. Visible effervescence. S: dry, yeasty, like a very dry hard cider with heavy citric acid addition. Hint of sweetness- the malt comes though as it warms. T: whoa, tart Apple, honey, tangerine or grapefruit. Acidic. Like some Berliner weissbier but crisp. Definite dried to the max . F: sharp, not as fizzy as it poured. Let it rest. Salt addition is suble enough to go nearly unnoticed but comes out in the mouthfeel. It coats the mouth much more than the dryness would suggest. I would presume the salt knocks down the tartness as it doesn't burn the gut. Overall pretty solid sipper.

This is truly a phenomenal Gose...probably the best I have had of the style. Dangerously refreshing, the orange is up front and authentic. There is a malt background but the citrus is the star and it takes the stage in a well deserved way. I could drink these all day in the summer...and winter...and spring and fall as well.

Hazed orange body, becomes completely opaque with the yeast addition.
Thin foam layer, spotty lace.

Aroma is juicy and tart, full of fresh orange zest and crisp acidity.
Taste packs a puckering sour punch and juicy orange flavor, sort of like a sour mimosa. Light to medium bodied and somewhat yeasty. Crisp and clean with a mild salinity and nicely dry finish.

Great first impression from these guys, and I'm eager to drink it again. Looking forward to trying the rest of their lineup.

Pours a hazy golden color with a fizzy head that disappeared instantly. Smell is citrusy and sour. The taste follows the nose. Citrus upfront with a little bit of sourness that hits the tongue. The carbonation is done well for this type of beer. A very solid gose. I enjoy the orange flavor added to it.
