3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Aroma: Wheat malt, light spice (which doesn’t seem like coriander at all), lemon, and a light caramel and toast note. Appearance: Pale yellow in color and cloudy. White head was small and foamy with fair retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lightly toast and wheat, yeast and very light caramel. Tart lemon has a nice sourness to it. The salt comes in mid-taste and lingers into the finish. Salt adds a richness and roundness to the whole thing. Medium-sweet finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: First time I’ve had this style, and I really liked it. Refreshing and tasty. The salt was interesting and definitely enhanced the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy copper color, medium fine head. Aroma slightly wheaty, spicy but not distinctly coriander, and seemingly salty, perhaps like the smell of the ocean. A bare hint of melanoidin. Flavor, I have to say, is not unlike an American wheat. I detect no esters nor phenols at all. Just the same generic spiciness in the nose, and a definitely lingering saltiness, which certainly makes this one unique. Pleasingly soft, almost full, mouthfeel. Only vaguely tart, I can’t really get any lactic character out of it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale yellow body filled with dark floaties and a topped by a thinning white head.
Smell: Lightly tart lemon wheat aroma that has, for me, only a mild coriander presence, but a good bit of saltiness to it, like standing near the ocean.
Taste: Wheat base imparting a gentle sweetness rounded out by soft citrus notes and a light spicing of coriander. Both the salt and the lactic qualities present themselves in the dry, lasting finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: I am totally powerless to resist it’s refreshing uniqueness. Everyone wins when they play Duck, Duck, Gose.

Pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head. Aroma is salty, sour, and wheat. Flavor is bitter, salty, and a bitter finish. Cool looking bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brownish-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of spices, toasted malts, caramel and sweet malts, and some creaminess. Flavor starts off with just a slight hint of coriander then it gives way to the toasted and caramel malts. FInishes with a little bit of saltiness to it. Overall this wasn’t bad, it was quite interesting, but not bad at all.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft sample at Hop Devil (late June ’07 from notes). Very pale yellow. Coriander (?) spice aroma. Salty, limey flavor, like a beer margarita. Salty finish, cloying. I just don’t get this one.

Had this a long time ago, mostly attracted by the bottle. I remember it tasted pretty terrible, but I think it could use a re-rate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - A very unusual beer. Poured a cloudy amber color with thick dark yeast in the bottle. Head lasted a while and was fairly thick. Spicy yeasty aroma. FLavor is sweet with a sour finish. Like a cross between a wheat beer and a mild lambic. Very tasty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly musty on the nose with hints of bread and salt. Pours a nice rich amber with decent carbonation. Lightly roasted malt on the palate. I could taste the salt on my lips minutes after I took a sip. Very subdued flavor. Creamy on the palate.
