   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
sulawang (1030) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2016
Visual: Pours pale reddish-brown with no head, very thin ringed retention, several slow steady streams.

Nose: iced lemon tea (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp, low CO2, immediate tartness

Mid-palate: more tartness, lemon, rhubarb-red berries, medium sour-tangy subtle pukey, (lvl-4-sweetness), biscuity malt backbone

Finish: a touch salty, dry palate slight rough

Summary: Interesting in that the more drink it, the more you want to drink it - the tangy sour fruitiness is satisfying while tart finish yearns for another sip. Strange as it may seem, it tastes like a fruity lemon tea, but barley subbed in for the tea.

Maxbier (890) - Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Hazy golden pour white head. Fruity barnyard aroma. Rhubarb right up front with some sweetness. Hints of salt and a tart finish with more rhubarb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skarecrow (226) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2016
500ml bottle. Very slight fruity aroma. Hazy gold color with no head. Salty Gose taste with tart rhubarb finish but thin at the back end.

bubblehouse (1343) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 12, 2016
It’s interesting. Not quite as sour as I like my gose. Got better the longer I drank it.

sjogro (2722) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle shared at Maakun’s. Light hazy golden with thin head. Sweet grain, seasalt, vegetal and fruity rhubarb notes. Light soapy, elderflower lemonade-like. Wet popcorn. Christmastree. Piss. Weird. Light sweet, bit sour, bit salty. Bit cardboardy. Under medium body, average carbonation, quite sessionable.

Maakun (3926) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear golden with short lasting fizzy white head. Very floral, soapy, light caramel and bread, some milky rhubarb, algae, dusty newspaper. Light sour and very light sweet, maybe a hint of salt. Under medium bodied with slick feel and low carbonation.

Cybercat (5121) - Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Taps hazy apple-cider golden with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but offers rhubarb and malty notes. Flavor features rhubarb, sour fruit and fresh malt tones. Body and fizz are typical but enjoyable. Rhubarb rhubarb!

ben4321 (5697) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Draft at Haymaker. Orange pour. Nice, fairly sweet aroma. Lightly tart. Rhubarb flavor works quite nicely actually. Smooth, clean, drinkable. Less sour than most in this style but pretty nice.

dysenteri (130) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2016
Flaska från Boxbeers. Arom är rabarber och jordbubbar. Smakar mest smaksatt mineralvatten (dåligt kolsyrad), en del sälta, lätt syrligt. En skum blandning som inte fungerar.

On tap. Not quite a typical Gose, makes me think smaller brewers feel their customers want the oddest additional ingredients possible. Maybe they do. The rhubarb in this case does not bring anything special to the tap. OK, but this is meant more pejoratively than usual. Where can this trend end?
