3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Diamond, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is plum and plenty of it with some light funk. Taste is somewhat sweet, ever so slightly sour, and a tad bit salty. Interesting beer. I don’t know if I would have called it a gose, but it was tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft in Cleveland (OH)
Having tried a few German goses that feel true to style this was a shock to the system. Hard to define as a gose it is more like a salty fruity beer. Ultimately it is a noble experiment that blends two styles without really succeeding at either.
Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy peach base glows under a starchy white head. Lightly salted pears lack the bite of a true gose. Popcorn with a pinch of sea salt hangs around like the ghost of a high end movie theater. The fruitiness is what throws it the nose off the scent.
Flavor / Palate - Salty peaches make this more of a fruit experience than the salty brine I was anticipating. Light and drinkable it could be consumed fairly quickly if you just wanted to rush it. If not there is some depth that makes it enjoyable although it is not true to style. If it pops up again get a sample and decide for yourself.

Draft at Ginger Man. Pours gold with a white head. Light berry like fruity sweetness, mild saltiness, and a quick finish. Just a faint hint of acidity. Really drinkable and really delicious. A bit more tartness would have made this incredible.
