COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The refreshing tartness in this divine, bright golden-colored ale gives way to earthy undertones and hints of citrus followed by a slight sea salt-like dryness and tangy, effervescent finish.

12 oz. can, consumed on 3-26-15. Pale gold. Slight haze, mostly clear. Light effervescence. Small to moderate amount of short-lasting, off-white head. Salt, lemon, mold, and funky cheese in the aroma. Mineral, fungal smell. I understand that this is how it’s supposed to smell, and I love the taste of a good sour and occasionally love the smell of one, but why should I pretend that this smells anything but bad? Such is the curse of certain sours; they can taste excellent and smell like crap, sometimes literally. Tangy, sour flavor. Light moldy cheesiness in the taste. Salty. Apple juice and tart white wine flavors. Lemon and white vinegar Easy to drink and refreshing. Light in body. Frothy in the palate. Overall, this is a subpar sour.

ContemplateBeer (1633) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 22, 2015
A little break from my California boycott. Was trying to find something on tap my wife might like, but ended up drinking it (she didn’t dig this too much). Anywho... Aroma: Lemony with hints of Riesling; light saline component. Appearance: Pale yellow with a white head that fades into a small skin. Flavor: Lemony. Sustained lemon throughout with a substantial tart finish that has a touch of saline. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A little simple, but good.

UXO (588) - CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
Pours a hazy straw with no head or lacing. (3/5) Nose is quite muted, citrus, brine, earth. (8/10) Taste is very mild sweet, mild bitter, moderate sour, mild salt. (8/10) Light to medium bodied, dry and tart finish. (4/5) Nice. Not as sweet and fruity as the blood orange version, which makes it taste more like a lambic. Really worth trying, and convinces me even more than gose is a style that really needs more love. (16/20)

12oz can from Tanakaya. Aromas of lemon, lime, slight funkiness and pocari sweat. Sour and salty on the palate. A rush of lemon-lime on the first sip then a nice long dry finish with a touch of sea salt. Very refreshing and tart, but not overly so.
