4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very good beer. Appearance is traditional with a smallish off-white head that soon settles and a hazy yellow color. Aroma is grain and yeast. On my first sip I got wheat, grain, a little tart & coriander, but no salt. Second sip got all of that but then got a little salt too. Body is just right. Very nice drinking beer. Wouldn’t mind another.

Bottle, hazy straw color. Aroma is a nice tart lemon, wheat and hints of spice. The flavor is much the same. Smooth light palate with the salt showing lightly and a nice kick of coriander in the finish. The body is last ghter with a refreshing finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from 7-Eleven. Pours white gold with a white head. Aroma is green apple, sour wheat funk, lemon. Taste is light citrus funk, watery and overpowered by salt. Corriander in the finish doesn’t quite bring my palate back. A first for me, a Gose that’s too salty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle
I was happy to grab a four pack of this as an opportunity to try my first Off Color release. It will not be my last if this is representative. A solid gose does remain completely true to style but ties in some Midwestern roots.
Aroma / Appearance - Carbonated liquid flows a rosy gold hue. A crisp white slowly collapses to a thin layer of ice. Salty lemonade and coriander tickle the air without being overly aggressive.
Flavor / Palate - A salty lick of watery sweat fills the mouth with fluidness. Light citrus carries to a crisp transition that refreshes the palate. It falls just short of world class. Nonetheless this Midwestern gem mixes a bit of old world and new in a way that stands out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the beach. Decent gose- the right flavor notes are all there but pretty subdued. Sort of like gose 101. Hazy dark golden pour. Not much head but decent lacing. Citrus, sour, lemon and very subtle salty notes. Yeast and earthiness balance it out. Could be more tart. Still crisp, refreshing and interesting. Nice summer brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy straw-yellow with medium white head. Aroma is yeast, citrus, malt and spice. Upon tasting get lemon and coriander more specifically, with funky yeast. Don’t taste the salt at all (unlike other gose style beers I’ve had). A bit of sourness, but not overwhelming. Light body. Refreshing. Would enjoy this for summer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, coriander, sea salt, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, salt/spice, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, coriander, sea salt, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Slight fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, coriander, sea salt, wheat, cracker, bread, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, salt/spice, and pale malt flavors; with a good malt/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly saline/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is a very good Gose style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, salt/spice, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. It was not as tart as I was hoping for, but the flavors were very well balanced. A nicely enjoyable offering.
