Tasted like Lacroix and lime juice with carbonated water. Not as dry and salty as I'd like. It's a try.

Comes in a clear, pink color with some rising bubbles. It has a small white head that lasts longer than expected for a gose.
The aroma is tart cranberry, but the coriander and salt is very prominent. It smells like saltwater with some cranberry.
On the palate, you get tart cranberry right up front, followed by light but slightly creamy wheat malt. Salt and coriander are quite prominent and open the palate up, allowing the cranberry to further shine. Hints of green apple skin and lemon. Iced tea.
Mildly acidic, tart, but not overly sour. Finishes with some lingering coriander and salt.
Medium-light body, well carbonated, crisp and refreshing.

L -- Ripe red nectarine-hued body with a two-finger solid white head produced with aerated pour. As usual for the style, zero retention or lacing
S -- Very unexpected aromas. Predominantly caramel, toffee, brine, and cranberry. Mild
T -- A hint of the same caramel/toffee notes picked up on in the aromas, followed by a dry cranberry/lemon tartness, wheat, salt, and coriander
F -- Well carbonated. Mild mouthfeel. Very refreshing
O -- As good – possibly better than – Lost Nation's Gose, and at a lower price point

This was poured into a pokal. The appearance was a hazy burnt pink color with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head (I find that with most American made goses). The smell has the tart/sourness of the cranberry up front and then some "lemon". Saltiness is ever so slight. The flavor is basically the same and the sourness seems to come from the cranberry more than the portion of wheat. There’s no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, this one was light bodied with a low riding carbonation. Nothing clings to my tongue, no bitterness, no harshness, no tartness, no sourness. Overall, as a gose, its a bit lighter than American made ones.

Pours from bottle to glass pale pink-red with abundant carbonation but little head or lacing. Smell is of cranberries and seawater. Taste is cranberries and salt. Soft but dry feel in the tongue, as is customary for the style. Simple, refreshing, and well done. I don't normally even like cranberry, but this was good. I misread the bottle as saying 'raspberry'...
