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 purchased at Julioís Liquors. Murky gold color. Aroma of salt, musty, old lemons and lactic acids. Ok...

Flavor is mostly the same thing going. Tart lemon, mild lactic note, sea salt with a wheated malt and underlying grain body. The carbonation gives a light effervescent feel. Light body with a mineral note down in it. Nice balance of tartness with salt. Really dig gose in a can, this is a nice example of the style.

Poured a golden color with aromas of light slat, some light lemon, a touch of wheat, and some light tang. Flavors matched the aromas, light sour, refreshing with the salt. Nice beer to drink in the heat.

12oz can opens with a splash onto my hand (all six in the sixpack did this, I guess these are high fill cans) and pours with a clear gold body that supports a weak white head. The aroma offers up lime and lemon sweetened up a bit and blended into salt, wheat and sourness in the background. The taste starts tart and refreshing with lime and lemon and then a salty note heading to midway. Just like the nose a mild wheat and sour sensation pops up here and there. A bit of sour mash would be pretty neat here and would lean more toward my flavor preference. Still this is a solid refreshing hot weather brew.

Can: Thanks, Kevin. Mostly clear, pale yellow color with a soapy & bubbly white collar around the edges. Light aroma of lemon flesh, soured wheat, cereal grains, & a good amount of citric, almost lactic tartness. Big-time lemon flavor with that mild, backing acidity & lacto sourness. Wheat, stone fruit, apple, & a nice saltiness that crashes in mid-palate, mellowing out the sourness as it leadings into a dry, wheaty finish. Crushable gose, this is really tasty stuff,

Pour is a murky yellow with a small white head. Aroma Is tart and sugar. Flavor is tart fruit with a palate cleansing lactic acid. Finish is a bit thin and mildly salty. This was a decent beer with a nice tartness.

dinnerstick (2) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014 does not count
Salt, tart, and savory in excellent balance. The salt comes across more like a strong mineral white wine, rather than drowning in seawater. Very light acidity, fresh but nowhere near puckering. First sip is perhaps odd, easier drinking with each subsequent. Excellent body and mouthfeel for a light beer. Foamy white head started to fade, but the beer didnít stick around that long. Snifter glass, on tap at Kafe Belgie, Utrecht.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Can: The aroma consists of moderate musty sour lemon, light wheat, a touch citrus, and some mineral notes. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two finger fizzy white head that quickly diminishes to a few stray bubbles around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts moderate sour lemon with some light citrus. There are some faint wheat flavors in the middle. The finish has more puckering lemon notes with a touch of mineral salt and hints of must. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, Iím really liking the canned Goses that are coming out. Hopefully Anderson Valley keeps this around because I can see myself drinking a lot of this.

Clear and straight with the focus on the sourness. It's soft and lightly carbonated. It sour at first and at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
