3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear yellow with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is salt, wet straw, hint of caramel and stone fruits. Light bodied, some sweet, salty and sour notes on the palate, with the salt lingering in the aftertaste. Flavour is honey, lemon, salt, hint of wheat-like sweetness in the background. I quite like it

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber. Unclear pale yellow, big frothy white head settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of spicy coriander and saltchuck. Tart citrus, wheaty and yeasty taste, no bitterness, sour spiciness, coriander with a peculiar saline quality. Well carbonated, lighter bodied, low hopped. Finishes crisp and dry. Needs an infusion of sweetness to balance it out, which apparently used to be the practice. Not a fan of this style. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is my first gose, so I really have nothing to compare it to, but it was enjoyable. Hazy straw golden with a acidic head. Aroma of bread dough, coriander, sour wheat. Taste is a bit soapy and salty, not a sour as I thought it might have been, quite mild actually. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a large rocky white head that slowly dissolves leaving a bunch of rings of lace. Aroma is lemony citrus, perfumey, salt water like, and a bit bready. Flavour is salty, mildly lemony, lightly sour/tart, grass and wheat. I?m loving this style for the summer, personally I would drink this before a hefe 9 times out of 10.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a lacey white head. Aroma of straw, malts, lemon tartness and cereal. Taste is crisp lemon tartness blended well with a pale malt and cereal like flavor. Even a bit of honey flavor in there too, nice crisp and refreshing gose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pale malts, lemon, straw, little farmhouse and some yeast. Cloudy pale yellow with a rich bubbly head. Quick hit of honey, lemon, grassy flavour then it disappears completely with a mild soapy salty finish. A great summer beer I could drink all night.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light notes of salt, some noble hops, some grass and biscuity malt. Flavour brings out moderate salt, some grassy hops, a little bit of spice, and biscuity malt. The salt isnít *that* dominant, but is well-situated. Thirst-quenching and solid, but nothing spectacular.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours gold with white head. Smell of salt is very noticeable at first but lessens. Also wheat notes and pear. Flavour is heffy with a bit of salt. Pretty soft. Enjoyable. Donít think the critters had as much an effect as expected. Wouldnít be surprised to find more of that aspect in a future batch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 650ml bottle. Murky amber-yellow with wispy white head. Lots of citrus on the nose, but very little hop flavour. Instead wheat, doughy yeast, seawater, coriander. Light and slightly salty -- has a mouthfeel like very dry club soda. Unusual.
