COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Golden Gate Gose is a special draft-only beer inspired by the classic wheat beer hailing from Leipzig, Germany. Traditionally brewed with salt and coriander, our tart California-inspried version is brewed with San Francisco Bay sea salt, lemon verbena and coriander grown especially for us by Dirty Girl Produce in Santa Cruz, California. Fermented with our house saison yeast, this delicate and tart beer is a perfect summer refresher. Pair with fresh seafood and sunshine.

hopscotch (9388) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with no head. The aroma is grainy and touch soapy. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is mostly nondescript - grainy and yeasty. The much-anticipated acidity and salinity just aren’t here. Short, crisp finish. Refreshing anyway. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Bottle from HOTB. Pours a partly cloudy pale orange yellow with a slight white head. Aroma of spices, flowers, light sour aroma. Taste is sweet with a hint of sourness. Not a good example of the style. Not very enjoyable to me.

Idiosynkrasie (4025) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2014
650ml bottle. Hazy, yellow-ish golden colour with average, frothy, reinforced, half-way lasting, white head. Fruity aroma has notes of lemon and yellow apple, salty-herbal background, a touch of coriander and peppery spicy yeast. Taste is slightly tart, lemon juice tartness, a coriander note, a minimally salty touch, fruity hints of apple and quince (at one point there’s nothing else but the flashing up of insipid, plain bitter hoppy Erzquell Pils right before closing hour in the no longer existing pub "Zur Bierpumpe" in K.; amazing - terrifying!). Refreshing, light, slightly too well-behaved.

Bomber to tall glass. The pour is golden but hazy with a big white head. The aroma is salt and funk and wheat. The taste is tart lemon, salt, and juicy sour funk. The finish is crisp and puckering. Overall a really nice Gose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (233) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is slight funk, tart rinds, some zesty earthenware. Taste is wheat-y with a nice tart backbone, some oaky dry notes as well. Has a kombucha / mild apple cider vinegar underbelly that I enjoyed but also thought came across a little too astrigent for my liking.

Pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. Wheat, tart, lemon, spice and fruit aroma. Lemon, wheat, coriander, yeast, apple, pear, tart, salt, floral, grain and biscuit flavors. Light body and lively carbonation. Tart mouthfeel with a lemon, spice and tart finish with a hint of salt.

Pretty nice. I’m not too familiar with this beer style. Sweet, light, refreshing. Light fruit in the aroma and flavor. Not overly tart.
