4.21/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a tall tulip.

Nice golden color with a creamy 1/8" white head. Recedes to a ring, a little bit of lacing.

Bright tangy smell, pineapple, melon, a little brine, pear juice. Nice.

The taste comes in with soft wheat malt, sharp sea salt, spicy pineapple, peach pit. Subtle tartness balancing slight fruity sweetness. Ends soft with peach and honeydew melon. I've never had a quince, so maybe it tastes like quince.

Soft, fluffy body, ends fairly clean.

I liked the rhubarb version better, but this is also good. Like the rhubarb, it manages to get a complexity of fruit flavors out of one fruit. Less tart than other goses I've had, I wouldn't mind a little more.

Loose white foam over cloudy wax-yellow. 4
Lime zest, white vinegar, flowers, and waxberry. 4
Hit of lemon-tropical fruit soda, white vinegar, pompelo, yet more fruity jam on the comeback. 4.25
Grapefruit finish and tingly grape skin champagne linger.
Crisp, light, dry. 4.25

Crazy how this is both fruity and savoury. Tart more than sour makes it super quenching. Super summery, historic but not fusty, overall superior. 4.25

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Clear straw yellow with a huge four inch fluffy white head that lasts several minutes before settling to a foamy pillow. The Stiegl stange holds a coating of sticky lace above. After yeast is added in the second pour, it turns cloudy orange.

The aroma is reminiscent of fresh sea breeze with lemon or lime. Other nuances include floral lilac and lavender and honeydew melon. The yeast addition adds earthiness and green apples.

Light tartness balances the brine. Honeydew melon lingers in a mild finish. Overall this has a mild, sweet, tart/acid balance. It warms well but is best cool. Yeast added faint banana.

The body is light and silky with fine scrubbing carbonation and faint alcohol. This is a refreshing thirst quencher. Mouthfeel became creamy with yeast.

This is a very relaxing, subtle beer that I will look for in the future. It is better without the yeast.

Corrected: as I realized I posted this review originally in the "regular" version, not the Quinced variant.

This pours a light straw amber with a hint of grapefruit pink. Aroma has a quince note, far as I can tell—it’s something akin to a candied yet fresh grapefruity floral note. Tastes so good.
It’s … well, it’s tartly sour, refreshing and crisp, yet funky and strange in the most engaging sort of way. It could have easily been a mess but somehow it works. This might have been the most interested beer I’ve tried in a while.

3.8/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

5.2% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with grain, fruit, and salt aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, earth, fruit, and salt flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid fruit and salt characteristics, but the sourness in this one is fairly mild in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.75

16.9 oz. bottle poured into weizen glass

L: crystal clear gold, pushes up almost 2-finger head of white foam, no sticking, very little lacing but it's keeping a nice white collar of foam; clarity is at a pilsener level, stunning

S: pizza dough, pizza crust, yeast and grain, salty marinara sauce as it warms

T: tonic water, quinine, slightly tart, grain, has a light malt sweeter finish as it warms

F: very soft, almost flat, carbonation feels very low, brew is light and watery

O: easy-drinking gose, has some interesting sweet notes that dive in and mix well with the salty aroma and quinine flavor; far from sour, but it does have a tart finish

0.5 mL bottle poured to Oktoberfest glass. Deep golden color, 2 finger head that mostly diminishes. Fruity nose of pear with a hint of funk. Clean taste with a finish that lingers, keeping the fruity tones and almost tasting like cider. Average feel and carbonation.
