Very Good

Notes: Glow Worm livens up a traditional German Gose with Boysenberry & Guava. Tart but not overly sour, sessionable and bursting with fruit.

A: The beer is hazy purplish red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thick collar around the edge of the glass and wisps of bubbles on the surface.
S: Strong aromas of guava are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors of guava along with hints of boysenberry.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the dominant aromas and flavors of guava in this gose. It wasn't really sour or salty but had a nice amount of tartness.

On tap at Thin Man Brewery in Buffalo, NY.

This one pours a vivid dark purplish color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like dark berry and dark fruit, very tart and very juicy, with a bit of acidity.

I don't get really get much guava here, but there's definitely a lot of boysenberry, with some lighter blackberry-like tones. There's not much here other than fruit, but it's definitely tasty anyway.

This has a pleasantly light acidity with a pretty crisp finish, and a high level of drinkability.

This is somewhat basic, but still tastes good, and goes down so easily.

Hazy deep purple (heh) appearance with a small pink head. Decent retention for a Gose; a thin ring remains.
Smells like very sour and jammy raspberry and blackberry.
Tastes like raspberry and black berry jam with a medium-plus acidic sourness. Sourness level comparable to sucking on a lemon. Pink grapefruit juice and guava. Lemon zest. A hint of salt. Subtle wheaty malt. Slight lingering sourness and fruit juice sweetness.
Creamy feel, medium-light, medium carbonation.

Perfect score for flawless exectution of fruit and sourness. Absolutely delicious and beautiful, and I wouldn't change a thing.
