3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First Gose for me. Expected more coriander. Appearance looked like a standard lager but very little head, no lace. Decent golden color with a lot of carbonation action. As mentioned didn’t pick up any coriander in the aroma (and taste). The salt was not noticeable in the flavor but found in the aftertaste. Similar to the salt-flavor-aftertaste you get after sipping a margarita. The mouthfeel was originally very lively but I didn’t pound the beer and after sitting 10 min or so, it quickly came across almost flat. It was refreshing at first, then became more interesting than sessionable. I don’t have any other Gose reference so I attempted to be fair in evaluating.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Resurrection of a bizarre historical beer style from 18th-century Leipzig, a wheat beer with lactic fermentation, salt (!) and coriander (and thus an exception to the Reinheitsgebot)... Stable, creamy, snow white head on top of a cloudy, ’dirty’ blonde beer. Sour and somewhat grainy aroma with wheat, coriander, sweat, jute, yoghurt, grapefruit and mango and indeed, a sniff of salt seems to shine through. Taste a dry sourishness, wheaty and bready, sour cream, just a tad of saltiness though (fortunately) very subtle, finishing again in dry sourishness, but thirst-quenching alright. Interesting, though not my cup of tea.

Aroma of coriander, maybe no hop at all, fresh character, just a little bit of malty notes. It reminds me somehow a blanche (surely wheat malt) but with more tartness, very light bodied, in the middle between sweet and salty. Fizzy with a very peculiar astringent finish.

Odd gose to me, not as tart as I expect, has a fruity aroma and the taste has some of the banana nutty flavors you get in a Belgian double. Slight salty, slight tart, yeast fruity esters with a barnyard finish. Good gose and maybe more true to the style, but I prefer the more tartness in my gose.

Smooth beginning, hints of coriander. Fresh, smooth, easy to drink. No salt! (where is it???). Not too sour, nice and smooth.
A bit too smooth and a bit too "mainstream"... 10/12/12/11

Clear yellow color with a huge white, fluffy head. Soft wheaty-sour milk nose. Tart lactic flavor fills the palate, while a mild herbal flavor follows on the end. Slightly salty and sweet mixed in for good measure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille d 341ml rapportée des USA
Olfactif: Les notes acidulées sont très présentes au nez; acide lactique, légères notes de coriandre, notes de suri.
Visuel: Jaune / paille, légèrement floue. La mousse est assez abondante, rocailleuse, avec un bon maintient. Aucune trace sur le verre.
Gustatif: La sensation première se situe dans son aspect aqueux et dans sa légèreté. Mais, très vite on entre dans les notes citronnées et acidulées douces et désaltérantes. On y dénote également des accents de coriandre. En bouche, c’est frais, désaltérant, léger. On n’y perçoit presque pas le sel. Malgré son acidité lactique, ses notes de lait suri, elle demeure douce et rafraichissante.

10oz on tap at Neons. Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, light carbonation. Lightly slick finish. More of a full feel than the ABV would suggest. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate satisfying bit of sour taste. Good bit of coriander, noticeable but not too spicy. Some zesty citrus peel hint of lime. Don’t really notice the salt much, it’s very well-ntegrated and in-check. Great, satisfying, refreshing gose. Tasty, interesting yeast note.
