2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is strongly of citrus. The flavor isn’t as strong as the aroma would lead you to believe. It is very lemony, a little bit minerally with a crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Other than that it tastes a littlbe bit like a wheat beer and a non-hoppy ale too. I personally think this is more so a beer for drinking and not for sipping.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while, and finally found it on a recent trip to Minneapolis. Pale yellow in colour with a bit of haze and strong carbonation. Aromas of lemon, well water, seasalt, and mild coriander. More lemons and minerals in the mouth, along with some mild wheat malt and yeast. Very pronounced salt finish. There are some witbier and geuze elements to this beer, but the salt makes it quite unique. I doubt I could drink a lot of this, but I still found it very enjoyable.

Bottle sampled. Pours hazy golden with an average size white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon, fruit, and caramel. The flavor is sweet, citrus, fruit, spices, lemon, and caramel. Good body, decent brew.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well damnit if I’m not glad I bought this last bottle at Eagle Provisions. (off notes from 2-2007)
Pours a clouded amber gold. Nose is yeasty and citrus. Flavor is yeasty, slightly wheaty and leaves a long citric flavor on the tongue. It seems like a cross between a Belgian brew and a German. Quite interesting really. Definite spice influence, though I have to admit that my palate for spices is immature, so I can’t pick them out as I should be able to. On the mouth it is low in carbonation but slightly thick in ingredients. Extremely drinkable. Like I said, this was the last bottle to be had where I bought it. If you see it, go for it.

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.
