AirForceHops (5860) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Draft at The Dover Brickhouse, Dover, NH. Completely clear amber, golden color, thin head. Aroma is light grain, salt.

Wheat backbone with a weak grass and coriander in the back end that helps this dry out the texture, Body is very light, crisp after taste with a spirited carbonation level. Overall, I can see why this would be great after running a marathon. But I had to share my pint with a friend because it is pretty weak and kind of bland.

GenDV138 (5502) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2016
16 oz pour on draft at Boston Beer Garden in South Boston. Served in a shaker pint. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of butter, herbs. Tastes of herbs, spices, light salt, stone fruit, malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish. No tartness. Another tart-less "gose" from Sam Adams.

DiarmaidBHK (4085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2016
Draft at thirsty moose tap house. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much lacing. Not a lot on the nose. A bit of salt on the tongue but pretty faint. A slight tart note on the finish. Not even close to being the best example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

williamstome (1676) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2015
Golden-brown pour, small white head. Aroma of wheat and a bit of fruit and malt. Flavor is wheat, salt, spice, light fruitiness. Not the most exciting gose.

lag91 (55) - Milton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2014
Tap: Light golden color, about 1/2 finger head. Not very aromatic but enough to get an idea of the flavor. Light bitter lemon with a nice complimentary coriander spice. Only available along the Marathon Route and one select pub. Must have if in the Boston area

sailracer (481) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2014
Tap. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small head. The wheat flavor is prominent and the coriander adds some nice spice that goes very well with the mild lemony sourness. Pretty god overall and very drinkable.
