COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Loosely based on an obscure style of sour from Germany, a Gose is soured in the mash, ofter herbs are added, but salt is always added. The salt creates a truly unique mouthfeel and helps pull out the flavors. In this all barley base, we add 14 pounds of pumpkins per barrel and also put a little bit of pumpkin pie spice. Refreshing and classic, this is an amazing food beer.

Sampled at the Gastropub. Dark mahogany with no head. Brings me back to childhood with the smell of 5 cent coke bottles (the jelly kind) that you could buy from the corner 7/11 with a bit of tang and some salt. Definitely an odd duck but because of my fond memories I sorta like it.

AirForceHops (3100) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 9, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark muddy water in color, no head. Nose is almost pumpkin and spice with a real strange funk over top everything else. The flavor is salty (really too much salt) bad barley, odd funky dirty dish rage flavor. I really donít like to insult anybody since I am a real novice home brewer and canít claim to have much skill butÖ.. I have had much better home brews. Sorry this is a drain pour.

Totally dark caramel beer. smells spicy and oaky.notes of spice but nothing crazy.Very sweet. I do get that lacto tartness and saltiness is totally there but thereís something else about this that just doesnít taste right. Too salty, too spicy and too much resinous acidity. Sorry to the brewery which Iím sure heíll see this review. It just is not a very good beer. Purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Pours dark hazy mahogany no head. Smell mild amber flavors. Taste super salty. Bit of lactic funk and bit of pumpkin spices, but for the most part, just salt. Medium bodied. Hard to drink a full size of this, but a three oz pour is ok.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Amber, a little dirty, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Tart wheaty nose, spicy, notes of pumpkin pie and crust.   Smells good! Not as sweet or spicy on the tongue.   Wheaty, dry, a bit sour.   Probably not supposed to be as sweet or spicy as the nose suggested.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dry tart finish, borderline sour.   Wheaty, with very faint pumpkin pie spices.   The yeast, which I dislike, wasnít all that noticeable making for a better experience.

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. .

AmEricanbrew (5792) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 1, 2012
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

CheersMate (1309) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2012
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.
