Pours hazy yellow amber with a fast falling head of creamy off white foam that made a good stand. Malty nose with the light scent of fruit. herbal and a soft floral. A minerally scent. Drinks just acidic with a hearty yet refined cracker malt. Just a hint of salt int he finish. prickly bubbles, soft body, lightly fruity. The earthy coriander is feather light. Low bitterness. The body of the Lepzinger gose is what this beer reminds me of. It has the white rock like mineral taste of salt. There is also a light tropical scent. Finishes light, refreshing and tart. The floral and herbal on this hop seem to be perfectly matched. Mouth watering tartness sweet lemon peel.

This one pours with a slightly hazy golden hue, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells like sour lemon, with a bit of sweet orange and guava, a bit of acidity.

Ellicottville definitely could have gone into this a bit more bravely with the fruit additions, but it's a very crisp and drinkable gose. The sourness level is nice, slightly lingering, and the salinity level is subtle but nice. I don't get all the fruits- mainly orange and guava.

This is light bodied, and crisp and very clean, with a pretty refreshing drinkability to this.

I wish Ellicottville hadn't held back with the fruit here, as it could have really elevated this, but the base gose is surprisingly sturdy and solid.

L: Hazy translucent gold with a small white head. Slight retention, with some spotty lacing.

S: Salty and tart with orange and pineapple. Hints of passionfruit, guava, and mango. Grainy, wheaty, cereal-like malt with a touch of coriander.

T: Orange peel and pineapple upfront. Lightly tart with a good amount of salinity. Passionfruit and guava are there, but more subdued. Wheaty, almost harshly grainy malt with toasted coriander. Moderately tart throughout.

F: Light, but not watery. Well carbonated. Crisp, clean, and lightly dry.

O: A decent tropical-fruited gose. I wish the fruits popped a bit more, but this is quite refreshing.
