4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden with a thin head. Flavor is Light lemon, wheat, and citrus with a very light saltiness. (this is barely a gose)... but closer to a german gose than an american gose. In general its a very nice beer. And at the ABV, mouthfeel is amazing. Probably one of the best Gose I’ve had.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Supporting Kentucky products and nothing more. I don’t care for the style but I have been surprised before: see Abraxxxas. Salty kolsch nonsense. Refreshing but still not my style. Slight hefe character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Louisville (KY)
Settling down at the Holy Grale I began my session with a pint of this. Much more a fruity sour than a gose it lacks the saltiness of other examples. That established if you enjoy good local drafts then get your own glass. There are worse sours out there.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden semitransparent base harbors most of the light that slowly filters through. Light lemon, wheat, and citrus are offset by the ghost of saltiness. The profile is more lemon wheat beer than gose.
Flavor / Palate - Light lemons and peach give this a fruity vibe. The sourness is tame by comparison to an average gose or berliner weiss. It does deserve some credit for being refreshing even if it does not stay true to style. If that is want you are looking for seek elsewhere. Otherwise a small sample could turn you on to a nice draft from the Midwest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at the brewery. Kind of dingy golden. Only a little foam. This was short on salt. Mixed fruit. Wheat notes. Not nearly enough going on for a Gose. Wheat ale might be closer.

Pint on tap. Nearly opaque golden pear colored with a disappearing head. Nose is cracker and lemony bread yeast. Taste is saltine cracker, lemon juice, yeast and a touch of bubblegum. Light body is dry and has high carbonation. Decent summertime refreshment.
