For style it is fine but it lacks any of the briny character I expected from the addition of oyster shell and seaweed. Refreshing nonetheless.

a collaboration with stillwater. this is a traditional gose type brewed with oyster shells and seaweed. had to try it right? well, i wish i had more information, it smells and tastes an awful lot like normal gose, these bizarre and intriguing ingredients dont influence the beer as much as i might have thought and indeed hoped they would. enjoyable just the same though, light and refreshing with a pleasant minerality and briny complexion to it. oyster shells in the boil? maybe they give off some calcium and salt or something desirable with the heat. maybe they are in fermentation? giving some earthiness to it? aged on shells? that might be more fishy... its hard to figure for sure, and i would love some more information if anyone has it. the seaweed i think was a bit of a missed opportunity, its so faint in here as to be hard to place, instead of really making this beer unique. weird ingredients aside, i love the beer. its just the right amount of sour like the regular gose they do, and the malt feel and flavor is awesome. they make amazing beers, undoubtedly, i just think there was a missed opportunity to do something really boundary challenging here, and this isnt it. any fan of gose will enjoy this one.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a modest head, soon reducing to nothing (like most goses I have seen). I get some funkiness in the nose, almost like old socks. The mouth gets a slightly salty sweetness, which is interesting.

On-tap at HopCat Detroit.

This grossed everyone out at the table, but I enjoyed it... no shame. Yes, there's a definite essence of sea to it, but it works well with the style. Funky as hell... let's say that. It definitely tastes like salty oysters, with a heavy saltine cracker and vinegar vibe as well. The seaweed adds an earthy/gritty/dirty flavor to it as well. If you want something bizarre, this should do it for you. There's just something oddly compelling about this beer and, again, as a gose, I think it's pretty nice. Worth the price, though? Not to me, no... but I'm glad to have tried it.

Tastes tart in a fairly mild Woodchuck cider sort of way. Actually looks like a Woodchuck too. Certainly nothing aggressive about this beer, but it is fun. A little more color and sweetness than your typical gose, and the oysters/seaweed lend some salinity (obviously) and subtle earthiness. Also some nuttiness, perhaps? There are also fruity plum/strawberry flavors mid palate. A little bubble gum on the finish. Unfortunately, it's a little flat both in appearance and mouthfeel, but still a pleasant surprise.

dig the style but not the oyster seaweed thing. tart, yes, but the flavor was a bit of a turn off. nonetheless, pleased to have found and glad to have tried.

A truly interesting gose. The ingredients gave the beer a unique element missing from the many simple salt + sour = gose being churned out these days. The oyster element was so subtle as to be barely perceptible, but the salt was dominant, and served this beer well.

Color: Amber color but orange/red when held in front of the light
Smell: Very slightly fruit/floral, not rich or powerful.
Taste: It's cool and slightly bright on the tongue. I've never tasted oyster shells before but I assume its there. It's a good gose and I give it a star for that ingredient alone. I was not impressed but I would try it again.
Feel: Typical product expectations

Overall, it was a nice change to try another gose and one with a new ingredient (oyster shells) but I was not taken back by its light body and mild sour. I wish there was more flavor. That bottle graphics were cool.
