Pours a deep gold, light amber coloration with a medium, foamy head. Wonderful smell of sweet rhubarb, with light, biscuity malt and just a faint hint of sea salt coming through as well. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by a very nice sweet and sour rhubarb taste, with notes of clove, peppery spice and light sea salt as well. Finishes quite crisp and refreshing, with a nice, tart rhubarb note. This is an exceptionally well balanced Gose that makes for a great summer beer. The rhubarb note is just sublime here, great stuff.

Wow...wonderful beer. This one is clear and light amber. The head is white and medium-sized. The aroma is sweet with a little spice and candy scent. The taste is mostly balanced, if not tilted lightly sweet. Belgian-like phenols and plenty of flavor. Great and interesting brew.

Decanted into a shaker glass, pours a hazy yellow-brown color with a very foamy head (although minimal lacing evident. Distinct sea salt and pitted fruit nose, tastes predictably salty with clove, lemon, and grapefruit notes. Surprisingly light-bodied. I think this would be ideal to drink on the beach on a hot summer day. Who needs more conventional replacement fluids?

Slightly hazy peach color with just a bit of white foam. Aroma has the rhubarb, a bit of yogurt and some sea water. Taste starts tart and fruity, slightly savory, really well balanced. Light to medium body with medium to low carbonation. A really good gose, maybe the best version of the Geisterzug series.

I purchased this at Oliver's shared with Tim, enjoyed chilled in a goblet.

The color is pale golden with light amber hue and lightly hazed look with quick collapsing head with no lace. The smell is lovely - a sort of fruit aroma with subtle tangy earthy and berry -like scent. The feel is great with mild tartness and tangy fruity texture with a dry texture mid palate and moderately light body with medium carbonation.

The taste is great with mild rhubarb tartness and slight juicy earthy flavor with a light honey-like sweet element and herbal taste with dry mineral finish and lingering sour taste. Overall I was pleased with this considering how few rhubarb beers that are available it was interesting and held true to the base style very well.
