3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Into a snifter. Cloudy orange color with a finger of head that is quickly gone.
It smells like a German Riesling wine. The coriander comes through and a little banana.
Interesting taste. Light flavor upfront, bubbly, salty and sour lemon (lots). Very sour. It kinda grows on you or at least on me.
Higher carbonation and lighter body. A little sticky texture.
They created a beer that was almost lost... maybe there was a reason for it not being popular. Absolutely worth finding and trying though.

750ml c&c bottle shared by jcwatts. Sorry for hiding your turkey meatballs on you John. Pours a hazy gold color with almost no head. Aroma of funk, lemon citrus, and hints of herbal tea. Taste of sour acidic lemons, salt, and sour white grapes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml C&C bottle shared by jcwattsrugger, thanks John. Poured a clear apple cider brown thin to medium flat body and a very small white foamy head. Aroma is a bit odd, notes of vanilla candy, candles, rotting apple, bad fruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation to slightly stronger carbonation that has a lingering sourness on the aftertaste. Taste is more to style with a nice tartness that is not overpowering, like a watered down lemon, along with soft saltiness, some hint of green apple skins and a touch of funkiness and wet wheat. Nice beer but the aroma needs work.

750ml bottle, shared by dudeabide. Hazy amber orange yellow color. Minimal, thin off-white head. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Bigger body. Good sour salty texture. Tart, sour taste. Good, sour, oaky, lemony citrusy aroma. Very solid gose. Nice balance of tart and saltiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by dudeabide- thanks again, Nate! New label. A lot better looking than the old Signature series labels. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Aroma of salt, pale malts, husky grains, straw, and lemon. The flavor hits the same basic notes, but with more lemon. Wheat in both, too, maybe some sourdough and coriander. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, dry mouthfeel. Refreshing and nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden appearance with little to no head. Aroma is sour/tart apple with some mild locker room hints. Flavor is mildly salty/sour with a somewhat funky finish. It’s a little weak if you’re a fan of gose, but it might be a good introduction for people who want to try the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL I missed the coriander in this but its still a nicely tart, light colored big fluffy white headed beer, not a ton of sour or funk but really pleasant to drink, drying on the finish to me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at tasting, pours clearish golden with light head, not lasting. Lemons, salt, wood, wheat and yeast dominate the smell and taste. Light to medium body. Salty and tart.
