The aroma is of a mix of citrus and salt, much like the margarita namesake. The taste was light salt with some lime. Very nice highly carbed mouthfeel.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate lime, light lemon, faint minerals, and a hint of salt. It pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of lemon. The finish has moderate lime, lemon, and a hint of salt. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the mix of margarita with a Gose is a good combination.

Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Cloudy, olive-tinted yellow pour with a modest white collar that forms around the edges. Aroma has tons of lime juice with light stone fruit, wheat, hay, & salt underneath. Flavor starts with a strong hint of stone fruit, lime, lemon, & a touch of funk. Mid-palate of hay & salt fades into a bone-dry, wheat finish that ends pretty abruptly. Overall, pretty nice stuff & relatively unique.

Pouring at EBF 2014. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Big lime on the nose, funky and tartness. Huge lime flavor, lime zest and tons of peels. Tart and faintly salty. Lovely lingering lime acidity on the finish.

1/7/15. 750mL bottle thanks to Carl! Golden pour with a nice off-white head, good lacing. Nice aroma, a touch of sweetness, sour, lime, salt. Great flavor, lime, sour, lactic, a bit of salt... really reminds of a sour margarita. Tasty!

Martinus (3489) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2015
Hazy pale golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus, malts, hint of tequila, salt. Salty flavour, Margarita, lime, bit sour. Finish Margarita, even some booze notes. Nice! Maybe a bit gimmicky, but I quite like it!
(from draught @ CBC green session, Copenhagen 2014. Thanks for sharing today’s beers, RateBeer crew!)

Rated based on notes taken on 3 July 2014 -- On tap at the Craft Bar in Destin. This is a phenomenal Gose. Cigar City never disappoints.

Excellent beer, thanks for the share Carl. Very sweet gose. Hazy yellow pour. Lemon, acid, saltiness…pretty close to a margarita in the aroma. Taste had more sweet fruitiness, but still decently sour. Bubbly and lively. Really enjoyed this one.

markwise (4605) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle from CCB. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some salt, some lime, some citrus, some dryness, and some bite. Flavor starts out with lime, then goes to salt, then goes to citrus, then to some lactic bite finishing with a nice lime character. Light in body, sessionable as hell, and flat out delicious.
