A crisp and refreshing palate cleanser. Good balance of tart and wheat. Not as much saltiness as others that I've had. Still enjoyable.

Excited to find this beer locally because I don't think I've ever seen it before, let alone tried it.

Full disclosure up front -- I'm not a big sour beer fan, but I was pleasantly surprised by August Schell's Gose, so my mind is open.

A -- Hazy gold with a dense, off-white head that fades fast to nil.

S -- Nose of bready maltiness and light sulfur. Wheat malt becomes more prominent with warming.

T -- Tart, sour saltiness right up front that that blends quickly to a straightforward citric, lactic sourness. There are hints of breadiness back, but the dominance of flavor is sourness. A blend of tart citrus & saltiness linger at the back of the throat in the aftertaste.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft up front to light astringency in the finish. Body is light-medium.

O -- My overall impressions are reminiscent of first samplings of Gueuze. While this beer may be the hallmark of the style, and sourness may be something that's being rediscovered by today's beer drinkers, this beer may as well be pickle juice to me. Since I tried my first Gueuze almost 20 years ago, and I still can't enjoy the similar character, I don't think I can ever develop a palate for the flavors.

I would love it to be more salty; this is a nice light Gose that is refreshing and well balanced. HOG

Poured from a 500 mL capped bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.

A: Hazy, pale golden yellow body. 1 finger white head that quickly fizzles to a layer of coarse bubbles.

S: Coriander and salt. Cracker. Lemon. A touch of noble hops. Honey as it warms. Nicely inviting and with a certain sophistication.

T: A pleasant tartness with a mild salinity opens. Pale malts swell and balances things out with a touch of grainy sweetness. A hint of hops brings things to a reasonably dry close. No alcohol presence. Clean aftertaste.

M: Light to moderate carbonation with a light body. True to style. Refreshing.

O: Well balanced with a tasteful sour and salt presence. Quality malt notes. Top notch Gose.

Prost!

I am definitely spoiled by the more 'in your face' Gose versions, though I would imagine that this is closer to the classic take. Subdued coriander and barely noticeable salt. More akin to a witte than what I am accustomed to in a Gose (Westbrook, AV). This is even far more subdued than Jammer. That being said, the slight acidity, balance and light refreshing mouthfeel should be considered in the Gose conversation. Glad I tried it, but would personally reach for something more pungent next time. Cheers!

Disappointing. Had heard great things about this but it's very flat, poor carbonation, very little flavor or depth. Mainly just a mildly sour flat mildly salted beer.
