3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared by me, in my dining room, just now.
Pours a nice pale golden color, hazy, with a pinkish hue, a nice frothy white head and some decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma has some saltiness & floral notes, itís got a really nice lactic funk, some tart fruit and some mild spice.
The flavor is just lightly sour & nicely lemony with some yougurty lactic character. The hibiscus is mild, but well employed and certainly noticeable adding some floral flavor and bitterness. The beer has a mild sweetness but finishes fairly dry. The saltiness is maybe a little more prevalent than what I usually find in a Gose, but by no means is the beer overly salty.
Refreshing 4 damn sure.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 1/22/15
Aroma: The aroma is fairly sour/tart, some floral notes as well, some light fruit notes.
Appearance: Pours a clear pinkish-orange color with a fizzy head and some light, drippy lacing.
Flavor: The flavor is fairly tart, fairly sour as well, it has a fruity sweetness, finishes a little salty.

This is some fairly tasty stuff. It mixes the tart and sour flavors with the sweetness and salty hints nicely.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into pint. Pours a slightly pinkish gold with a two finger head that rapidly completely dissipates away. Aroma - floral with sweet citrus notes and a touch of ocean/salt. Taste - dominantly sour initially, with citrus predominant, some floral notes, and then a salty wheat/bready finish. Good grief this stuff is delicious and I should have bought far more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy pink color with thin lasting head retention. Aroma shows strong amount of ocean salt, light hibiscus and sour wheat.
Flavor has the floral hibiscus mixed with the sour wheat with a blast of sea salt in the finish. Very salty in the backend. Effervescent carbonation level with a lighter refreshing body. I like it but the salt in the style is slightly off putting to me personally. Still a really brew. 12 oz. bottle provided by shrubber85.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 ounce bottle
A refreshing gose demonstrates that in capable hands an American brewery can do just as effective a job as a European one. Adding a little bit of a twist with hibiscus this release does not aim for complete authenticity. Even so it should be in the fridge of every serious beer rater who likes world class low gravity beers.
Aroma / Appearance - A peachy transparent body shimmers with active carbonation. Fresh offwhite head adds a pleasant contrast as well as trapping the salty peaches, fresh hibiscus petals, and more springtime depth.
Flavor / Palate - Peach, saltines, and sardines refresh a parched palate. Flowers in bloom in the middle of summer sweep towards a slightly sour finish. Polished from start to finish this well priced Boulevard offering provides something for everyone. If you see it locally do not hesitate to buy at least a single.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of my favorite refreshing summer beers. While I find the smell slightly off (most likely just the "sour") I absolutely love the flavor. It is, however, a subdued Gose. In this case the subdued salty flavors aid the flavor while leaving it sessionable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Cheese, coriander.
A- Light peach color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Sour, tart, slightly sweet, slightly salty, subtle spice, citrus.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, tart finish.
O- This was surprising. Quite sour and a unique cheese from a can aroma. At first I didnít think I liked this but the more I drank of it, I decided it was refreshing. Would be a very good hot day or warm weather beer, not a below 0 temp beer. WIsh this was a summer release instead.
