Cloudy yellow pour. Aroma lacto, lemons, slight butter. Tastes buttery lemoney, corriander, huskiness, brine, light palate. Watery but sticky. Not clean enough finish.

Draft at Fiddler’s. So cool to see goses popping up all over the place these days. Even a fairly small operation like NWP steps up with one now--and it wasn’t that long ago that this was a very tough style to come by in the states. Awesome sign of health for the industry. Pours a cloudy medium amber with very little head, if any. Tangy sweet nose, a little bit of salt, a little bit of lemon, maybe a hint of vinegary note in the background. Creamy medium body with very little carb. Some light caramel, some lemon, a little bit of salty marine tang. Crisp tangy finish. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 Tap at Fiddlers. Very light pour, slightly cloudy, into a small snifter (strange way to drink a gose). Very mild sourness and not particularly salty, gently sweet. None of the vomit that characterizes a true gose. In the end this is an inoffensive and entirely drinkable gose if rather unlike the real thing at the source in Leipzig.
