This is a fantastic Gose. Before this, Westbrook was my go-to. I wish I could get this back in AL, I would take this over any other Gose I've had, no questions asked.
The look and smell are similar to WB, and the taste is too, but it's far less acidic. Still very tart, moreso than Anderson Valley's offerings, but less than WB.
This is a session Gose. An all-day-erry-day Gose. Mowing the lawn Gose.

Bottle from midway in tulsa. Reviewed by style. I wish more reviewed by style.
Pours a nice apricot color with about a finger of head. Nice lacing which sems like a tatoo on the side of the glass.
Nose is an interesting mustard with apricot nose. Clearly sour...
Taste is damn spot on. Slight salt, which balances the tart sour. This is the best gose I have had. Not too much going on I. The way of complexity... but man, this is amazing spot on. Congrats choc.... best beer to style you have made. Absolutely amazing.

Such a good summertime beer! It's better cold, when the salt isn't as powerful. This becomes more noticeable as it sweats. You can work into it like any malt though and is a good entry beer for those curious in the craft beer scene. The coriander aroma is pleasantly noticeable throughout.

4oz pour->Melbourne Bros. Stemmed Tulip

A ~ Pours a deep Peach/Pumpkin that is ever so cloudy. 1/2 inch of head that fizzles away into very faint remnants of off white. Tiny bubbles.

S ~ Spicy Coriander & Pepper notes. Bit of apple pie. Soft wheat backbone with pils malt lending notes of grain & sliced pale fruit.

T ~ Crabapples, Raspberries, Plum skin, Sour Grapes, Coriander, Lemons, Red Apples in Vinegar...Lactic acid is present at the start then shifts into the fantastic blend of wheat & German malts that really compliments the initial flavors.
Finish has cereal grains, dried grass, yellow apple & coarse salt, which comes out a bit more throughout.

M ~ TART from the start with a very very very dry finish.
Medium bodied with a delightfully malty backbone that really makes the fruity/sour flavors sing. Carbonation is delicate. This is a very balanced beer for what it accomplishes. Would be a great "palette-scrubber" at a tasting.

D ~ This is my first Gose, but it will not be my last. A fantastic offering from Choc. This really is one of the most impressive 'Signature' offerings. Cannot wait to see more. Seek out!

Pours an effervescent & semi-hazed apricot with a finger of fast falling cream colored head.Not much head retention or lacing

S: Porridge, slight phenolic dirtyness, some hints of iron

T: Salty & lemony notes up front with a light hint of orange peel up front, along with peppery notes as well. Lemony tartness & saltyness as this warms, along with some faint dirty/earthy notes. Finishes salty with lemony tartness, some sour apple, plus a touch of dryness& & just a bit of pineapple

MF: Effervescent, light bodied, nicely balanced

Super drinkability, couldn't stay on it all day, but man this really slakes the thirst. This is a pretty daring take on the style works for me, I'm very impressed by this one!
