Aroma is lemon zest and spice with just a tiny hint of mustiness. Flavor is a bit like a lightly salted lemony brioche. Very interesting.

Bottle from Belmont station. Pours a golden/straw color with light haze. Dense head with great clinging of lace. The aroma is very pleasant and subtle. Notes of coriander, banana, wheat presence and lemon zest. The taste is very thirst quencing. The coriander and salt from this brew make it the gatorade of beers! I could drink this all night long and hope to this summer if it’s still available. Great unique style!

Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is corriander with some lemon and spices. Flavor is fruity with some lemon and corriander again but with a touch of wheat and spice. Finish is dry and sour. Kind of like a toned down Berliner Weiss and decent enough to get a few bottles of.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 On tap at the brewery. 6 years after my first rating its time for a new one. The gose in the glass is golden-yellow, nice head. Wonderful fruity-spicy aroma. Starts zippy, fruity, fine fruity notes of lemon. Light sourish. Reminds me of young apricots. More and more salty and spicy, not too intense. I enjoyed that wonderful aroma with every sip of this. Finish less sourish, still malty and salty. Well balanced finish. Could drink liters of this. Awesome!

A bit of funk on the aroma with a nice cloudy amber hue. Decent head with additional aromas of coriander. Pleasant and refreshing with a nice bit of mouthfeel. A bit of lemon peel on the flavour and aftertaste. Some decent complexity in this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Thanks to David for the bottle! Poured a lovely shade of medium caramel with a creamy cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of soft peppery spices, a bit of wheat tartness, and undercurrents of fruit peel sourness... quite nice! The flavor had a dry, dusty wheat backbone with peppery spices and tart fruity notes building around the edges and through the finish.. spices were a little much for me, but this was certainly refreshing.. sticky bananas and spices on the finish. Lighter, bodied, sour, dry, and very refreshing on the palate.. high carbonation.. this was well-done, and grew on me as I drank it. 7 4 6 4 14
Sampled 6/1/08. Poured hazy lighter golden with a short, fine-bubbled cap of white head. The aroma picked up coriander spicage and pineapple upfront with a bit of floral appeal.. lemon zest accents. The flavor was similar with light, fresh fruits paired with dry peppery spices and lemon zest.. complex, tasty, and refreshing. Light, dancing kind of feel on the palate with a delicate balance of spices, tartness, and fruit.. refreshing.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 Pours a cloudy, golden color with a nice white head. Odd, sweet cigar aroma, pipe tobacco maybe... Candy sugars and malt dominate here, strange sourness, and even stranger dry, parching finish. Worth searching out.

Very fresh nose of wheat, grapes,and spice. Pours sparkling clover honey amber. The tall and stiff frothy white fully lasting headthat leaves good lace. The flavor is laced with a heavy acidity that mixes with the dried fruit presence to form a bittersweet tartness that is very interesting and enjoyable. The finish is relatively brief. The light body is super creamy and soft. The finish is crisp. What a great surprise!

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light head that dissipates quickly leaving a little lacing behind. It has a dark brown to gold appearance that looks fairly clear and crisp. The smell reminds me of as sweet bock bier. It’s very fruity like apple and berry coupled with a hoppy smell. This bier is salty, the first bier I have ever had that is bitter and salty. Slightly spiced with salty flavors and hops.
