3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rather hazy yellowish light brown with a very ephemeral standard white head. There’s are some small chunks that might be either bacterial colonies or coriander capsule remnants. The nose is unique. Initially, I smell yogurt, or perhaps its the Lactobacillus? Some light light malt, some light vanilla and a touch of fruit (apple, lime). The palate is rather thin, though I think this serves the (refreshing) style of this beer well. The carbonation is on the low side. The flavors are subdued, but very unique. The lactic acid and fruitiness shines through a very light grainy (see wheaty) malt. The spices are light, providing nice filler with the sour flavors. The salt becomes noticable as the main flavors dissipate providing something really refreshing. I’d prefer this to Gatorade when playing ultimate on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not the best looking beer, a very hazy pale orange with what appears to be a lot of carbonation. It has the general wheat beer smell but is more sour, and big citrus. The salt is somewhat noticeable in the flavor, at least a little bit- saltwatery. Tastes fruity and sour. Its pretty refreshing, but I think the sourness might keep me from drinking too much of it, to some extent at least.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very unique bottle from Super Saver. Hazy gold pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of citrus, huge lime, hops, and some yeast notes. The flavor is tart, very citric and limey, with subdued spice and floral notes. Gets tarter as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mineral salts and coriander, like seltzer and a Quebec style spiced beer. Really woke up the taste buds, and went with food. Needed much water after. Very foamy head, light copper coloured body. Middle grainy mouthfeel.I had to try this style, thanks for sending jpm30.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours a hazy yellowish orange color with a huge rocky white head. Notable citrus in the aroma, very similar to a witbier. Flavor reminds me once again of a witbier with the notable citrus flavors and coriander. The salt does make a small appearance in this one and makes this beer unique to my tastebuds. It’s 92 degrees outside and this one is the perfect thirstquencher.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours murky orange-brown with a one-finger white head. Salty, lightly funky aroma with some Gueuze-like barnyard notes. A hint of caramel malt, as well. The flavor is a lot like a toned-down and salted-up Gueuze, beginning with the salt and a tiny hint of coriander and ending with a very light sourness. The salt comes back in the aftertaste. Thin and somewhat bland, but interesting nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 oz bottle into an English Pint glass. Pours a light golden yellow that is very clear with a very white medium
foamy head that sticks around for most of the glass. Aroma is intensely sided on the coriander and somewhere in there is a pinch of salt. Nose also consists of a tiny bit of citrus, but is mainly taken over by the other aspects. Taste is a lot of the same of the nose with coriander, salt, a bit of other spices, yeast, and honey. Somewhat lightly tart near the finish. There is medium carbonation with this one. An interesting flavor that I’d definitely try again!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted out of a 500 mL bullet shaped bottle. Foamy, fine beaded head on top of a gold/yellow body. LIghtly soured wheat flavors, just a hint of tart finish. Nice and creamy mothfeel. It has a hint of citrus flavor, presumably from the coriander, the salt isnt really noticeable except a light tingle at the tip/side of the tongue. Nice and refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was my first try of the Gose style, and I must say I am impressed. The most interesting aspect is the mouthfeel. It has a dry refreshing summer wheat beer character but a fullness that is quite satifying. It has a light lemony wheat flavor that is alike american wheat beers but with coriander and some brettanomyces funk and acidity. It doesn’t necessarily taste like salt but a saltine like taste is detectable. Perfect for a lazy summer day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light sour malt aroma - slight hint of coriander. Light yellow amber with small head. Primarily a sour wheat malt flavor - not near the sourness of a Berliner Weisse or lambic. Actually more like a good Zwickelbier. Very nice and smooth - glad I found this one
