MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
My Bottom Line:
This lean and subtle Gose profits from its delicate tartness and spiciness to build a quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the veiled pale blond.
-Salt is mostly perceived in the nose.
-This feels even lighter than it is.
-Coriander is well levelled with the rest of the flavor profile.
-I would have liked a softer mouthfeel. Carbonation was prickly and made up of tons of minute bubbles. Poor head retention too…

Bottle.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Pours a lightly hazed pale yellow with a nice fluffy head. Nose is pretty nice and balanced. Soft yogurt and citrus, floral coriander. Pretty clean overall, akin to a Belgian wit. On tasting, mild salinity, could use a touch more salt and a touch more tart. Bready and dry, more of the citrus comes through again. Really solid beer but could be amped up a little bit. Nice.

Indra (2649) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Lightly lightly bready/grainy malt and clove in the aroma, almost a briny character appearing here, some unusual herbal/spicy tinges and very faint tartness as well. Faint hint of trash(? -- This might sound odd, but I don’t mention that character in a bad way, it’s just interesting, I think). Fully hazy light golden color, head is fully subsiding. Spicy, lightly citric, salty flavor, gently malty and herbal, some pale grains and mild spice appearing at the finish. Some very light tartness and acidity here as well. Smooth and very low in carbonation, very clean and light-bodied. Refreshing!

arminjewell (6413) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Poured hazy yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of slight fruit, honey, some spice, funky barnyard, touch of salt, hints of lactic tartness as well in there. Taste was fairly nice, notes of some fruity wheat, honey and biscuit notes, some slight funk and lactic notes going well with the hint of salt that you found. Wish the salt was a bit more pronounced, but a fairly well done brew.

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Gabf. Moderately hazy, light yellow appearance with a pearl white head. Slightly spicy, yeasty, wheat malty aroma. Moderately spicy, yeasty, quite salty, wheat malty flavor. Interesting but I have a bit of a hard time dealing with the salt.

notalush (4990) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2011
GABF 2011 - fairly light and a little thin, but a nice, refreshing beer with light touches and lacto tartness, tangy wheat, peppery and coriander seed - a bit of earthiness and very light salt - lacks the depth of the traditional examples, but is very refreshing and quenching - decent.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Ap. Cloudy white gold .no head sparse lacing.

Aro. Light banana and sea breeze.

Taste. Toasted wheat banana with a funky yeasty finish.

Mouth. Thin.

Overall: I dunno I’d take The Bruery’s Salt of the Earth over this. I think the Gose character could have been bigger, when I had this in there lineup of blonde beers, there wasn’t a big difference.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Pours hazy murky dark sort of grapefruit juice with no head. The aroma has some fruit notes like dull apricot, coy apple-ness and faint yeasty notes. The taste is smooth with wheat notes, hay, meadows, a touch of salt, smooth yeasty like spices and subdued light skinned fruitiness. It ends with salt on the edge of the palate. Cool brew.
