Partially cloudy, light amber colored body; very lively carbonation with some particulates; thin white head yet lasting. Smells a bit like orange and seawater; a touch of citrus sweetness. Lovely sweet and tart flavors; fresh orange; a touch of salt. Medium-light body; sharp, acidic and tangy; bubbly.

For a nice change of pace, a refreshing gose beer can do the trick. This beer nicely balances the aromas and taste. Very tasty overall.

Bottle:
Pours a fairly clear yellow gold with an orange hue. No head once it settles, and none forthcoming with a swirl.

Nose definitely has an orange zest nature to it. The wheat comes through, and there is the lightest salinity to the beer.

Taste has a background thread of lactic tartness. Joining this is a nice orange zest, and a rather light grain note. A light saltiness hits the edges of my tongue.

Light and refreshing, tartness gets a little strong in the end, squeezing the back of my tongue a tad.

The orange is a nice part of this beer. As with the gooseberry, this is a little extra tart (though not at all as sour as the comparison beer.

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.
