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'...

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.

Beautiful, light pinkish red color with great carbonation and decent head. Aroma is nice with an acidness and malt that balances quite well. Taste is tart cranberries, salt and light spice with a crisp, semi-tart finish...

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.

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

77/100

A: The beer is hazy purple yellowish in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that rapidly dissipated, leaving only a few specks of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cranberry juice and lemons are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of cranberries along with underlying notes of lemons and hints of salt.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. While the cranberry juice helps make this beer more palatable compared to other beers in the style, it does seem to be a little strong and masks some of the taste of the underlying gose.
