3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deeper hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, wheat, floral and faint brine. It smelled a little funky but I attributed that to the salt. Taste is sweet with some light bitters, I did not pick up any saltiness, it was more tart. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Interesting, the aroma did not match the taste.

12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of coriander and salt upfront, especially coriander. Flavour is along the same lines, with loads of coriander spices that dominate, with light salt and some citrus. A bit different than most goses due to the coriander. Nice stuff.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, leggermente velata. poca schiuma e poco persistente. Sapori tenui di coriandolo, lattico, e cereale. Al palato corpo leggero, scorre veloce lasciando un retrogusto leggermente salato e anche un lieve metallico che disturba la bevuta.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - though significantly drabber than the one pictured. Nose is hint of sour , lemon, the corriander is very pronounced. Taste is lightly sour (think very gentle Berliner Weiss) leading to lots of corriander, then a suprisingly sweet fruity, caramel, larger like midsection and a light finish, with a hint of the salt. It’s too fizzy for me and the finish quickly starts to feel too thin.
This is a difficult beer to rate, it seems to be an outstanding alternative to a larger, it’s a light refresher with more depth... but... that in of itself does not make it a great, or even a good, beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazy yellow with a cm of fizzy, medium-fine egg-shell head. Aroma is dusty wheat grain, light berry, lager-like. body is creamy, but slightly watery, rather light. Light burn. Flavor is a bit of fake berry (strawberry, blue raspberry dum dum), a touch of lemon grass, candy, and salt. A touch of tartness. A nice, somewhat standard tasting gose. The tartness becomes more and more refreshing.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The description above is incorrect. The herb is coriander, not cilantro. But, it doesn’t really matter as they put so little in that you can’t taste it anyhow. They also put little to no salt in, so you can’t really taste that either. That is, the two special qualities of a Gose are both missing from this beer. It is drinkable, but not a Gose.
