COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour ale is a re-creation of a historic German beer style, spiced with coriander and sea salt to replicate the water in the town of Goslar where the beer originated.

Mep3222 (792) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Tart lactic aroma with salty, lemon and slight spice. Taste is wheaty, lemony, salty, and of sour. Fairly sour, maybe 4 of 10 but I would say this is slightly less sour than say Westbrook gose, maybe about the same, but definitely not over the top sour. It is balanced and full flavored, and feels like a very authentic gose. With how puckering some other cascade beers are I was thinking this one might be more sour, but still great. That being said this is one of the best gose I have had, with Westbrook maybe edging it out? Maybe a tie. But Westbrook is $12 a 6 pack vs $25 a bottle. So at a 3rd the cost Westbrook wins. I love cascade. My favorite brewery overall, but for the cost I will buy their more complex sours. The gose is a lighter, more session able beer and the cost is prohibitive here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with smal frothy white head. The aroma is funk, salt, lime juice. Medium mouth, lime, funk, salt, light tartness, very nice.

Gerbeer (2246) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
759 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with light head. Aromas of coriander and green grapes. Flavors of dry dough, earthy yeast and coriander. Slightly tart and salty. Okay but not worth $40.

Prufrockstar (1384) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle shared by Nick. Hanging with friends so keeping this short. Hazy gold with white head. Metallic; coriander; citrus; tastes refreshingly salty-tart. Light body, prickly carbonation.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with a small, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is doughy, lightly grainy and mildly citric. Medium to full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor offers lightly sweet biscuits, a modest level of bitterness and faint acidity. Finishes bready with only a hint of tartness and a tiny pinch of salt. Bottle courtesy of growler. Thanks Scott!

dmac (4538) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
750ml c&c bottle from www.craftbeerkings.com. Poured a milky/hazy yellow body under a smaller fizzy white head. Aroma is salty, sour lemon, lime, beach sand and a touch of milk. Flavor is the same but more limey than the aroma. Bigger bodied with strong carbonation and a yummy long lasting aftertaste. Good stuff.

slowrunner77 (6698) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 2, 2015
This ended up being a mellow but very nice example of the style. More coriander than salt, and light hay/funk. I’d think highly of it if you couldn’t get comparable beers in this style for far less $$.

Sarlacc83 (1216) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2015
On tap at the barrel house. A: Cloudy yellow, foamy white head, no lacing. N: Green apple, salt, pear, lactic acid, sweet-tart, orange peel, grapefruit. T: Salty, sour, sweet-tart. (Shocker) M: Light body, tingling carbonation, a bit slick. O: Decent Gose. Not in the same ballpark as Gose Gone Wild or even Block 15’s spontaneous version. Basically a saltwater Cascade sour.
