3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle, brewed & packaged for US export...sad that this is not even being considered for the domestic market apart from one online retailer. - Gentle kitchen salt briny nose, fresh yeast, indistinct orchard fruit peel. The quince tartness enters the lactic central character of this beer very organically, while remaining a "room spray" kind of perfume. Never becomes really sour nor develops any stand-alone funk, is just an overall palate-pleasing chugger. Dry, powdery, extremely easy to drink, pricey.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Semi-clear golden body with a soapy bright white, thin skin stretched across the top. Aroma of faint lemon, florals, light gum, sweet citrus, dusty hay, & some fresh graininess. Flavor is very slightly tart with some citrus & lemon up front. Not sour, just a mild hint of fruity tartness. Hay, faint stone fruit, grain, & a small hint of cotton. Really, really easy drinking & refreshing. Finishes clean with a very small kiss of acidity. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, light lemon, sweet tarts, and faint mineral notes. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal ring. The flavor starts with a light dose of citrus (I assume quince, but I’ve never tasted one before). The finish has light lemon, faint sweet tarts, and a touch of salt. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty and refreshing Gose.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a pale straw color with a big white head that fades to a pretty small one.
The aroma has a sort of pear & tart fruit thing going along with some fresh baked bread and some yogurt.
The flavor is really nicely balanced. It’s certainly forward with the tart fruit and it’s got a nice lactic twang. The sourness is bright but well restrained. The malt character is clean. Going in blind I wouldn’t have guessed that there was any fruit in the beer, but I can see where it had a very positive influence.
