Golden amber hazy with a thin head. I am sure glad I knew what I was getting. This was a Gose with added flavors. Lots of extra goodies in this beer. .

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden color with no head. Mild raw pumpkin, fall spice, pie crust aromas. Medium body with very light co2. Big lactic sourness at first gives way to salty, spicy herbal cumin flavors with a dash of pale malt and vegetal pumpkin--typical twisted Epic brew--not bad

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Vibrant, hazy orange body. Smells of sour citrus fruit, with a touch of salt. No head to speak of. Sour citrus body, with a little salt at the end, but completely fucking flat. Disgusting texture. Couldnít have said it better, when someone said "brine", as thatís, pretty much all this is good for. I donít know what the straw is thatís going to break the camelís back at this brewery, but this is the last beer that I will purchase from this brewer, until I see some stellar improvement. Seriously, Iíve been constantly let down by this brewing company, and canít say anything other than the guy is nice, but heís doing horribly, when it comes to brewing.

Tap @ Elysianís GPBF 2012... Epic Ales doesnít have the best track record in my book, so I took one for the team here with this pour. Honestly, wasnít as horrid as I expected. Poured bright, yellowish-orange with no head. Brine-like mouthfeel and character. Didnít get much pumpkin here, nor salt, but I am guessing the salt contributed to the mouthfeel. Some malt sweetness and spices and earthiness with an awkward tanginess towards the end.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark orange, no head. Funky nose. Sour, salt and old shoe. The body is funky and acerbic. Sour. Tart. Rotten salt. Twangy. Grapefruit rind finish.
