3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap (at the D-House, of course). Hazy orange-yellow with a small white head. The nose is a little citrusy and spicy with some dirty/dusty notes - kinda like a day out on the local fairgrounds. Honestly, after a while this one just starts to smell like feet. I brewed myself a Berliner weiss that didn’t quite get sour enough, and the lacto just made things really stinky in a way that strongly resembles this beer’s aroma. After it warmed up a ways I ended up just plugging my nose to take a sip... It’s interesting at first but gets overwhelming as the beer gets warm. Nevertheless, the flavor starts sweet and citrusy with some apple notes, followed by spice on the palate and a rather dry crisp spiciness from the salt. Finishes sweet. A refreshing and quaffable beer that might not be particularly interesting were it not for the salt and funkiness. I think salt should be an additive in more brewing styles, though, because it really added a lot to this one. That might have to be something I experiment with in my homebrews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is now called Sunshade Gose.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is coriander, wheat and citrus. The beer smells a lot like a traditional Belgian white with a little bit of funk. The flavor is more of the same with a lot of orange and lemon plus the addition of salt. The beer is pretty good overall and is very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow color. Old musty smell. Has a salty scent. Smells like you swam in the ocean and forgot your towel so you had to drive home in your nasty salt pants. Fair amount of salt on the taste. Decent finish. Lemon improves.

Pours cloudy yellow, practically no head. Light citrus aroma, very acidic. Light but full wheat taste, with a little bit of banana flavor from the yeast. The mouthfeel is very bright and fizzy, almost a little sour. The finish is smooth like salt water and tapers off blandy.
