COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rare German style, the gose is a slightly tart wheat ale made with salt during the brewing process. Our version has flavors of melon with yeast esters and a firm finish provided by Himalayan pink sea salt.

Tap @ Pour. Light yellow with delicate foamy head. Smelly a little like hay with daisies and cereal. Tastes a little like Capín Crunch cereal plus some hops. Dry with a fruity aftertaste.

GTAEgeek (1390) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Sample in a flight at the Craft Growler Shop. Pale yellow, with no head, but lots of bubbles. Light lemon juice, salt, hay, and some cloves. Sweet and citrusy, but a little weak. Very light body, sharp, and a little watery. This is a weak, watery take on a gose.

Keg @ Champion. The pourís gold with a small head. The nose is mashed apple. Some earthy saltiness. The taste is lightly tart. More apple, fruit sweetness. Strong mineral quality. Wheaty, pissy tang on the finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid gose. Refreshing stuff.

Kinz (3415) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Growler from Whole Foods. Hazy gold. Aroma is primarily wheat, with a bit of yeast character. Flavor matches. Faintest hint of lemon tartness, quite dry. Refreshing. I havenít had very many of these beers, but this was probably one of my favorites.

Emeister84 (1405) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Hard to pinpoint any aromas whatsoever. Appearance is gold, with almost no head. Salty, lightly tart, and savory. Light bodied, with low carbonation, and a short, dry finish. Not bad, but not much going on aside from the salty and umami taste characteristics. I feel I need to revisit this beer in a traditional glass, rather than the cylindrical 4 oz as part of the flight.
