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.

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.

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

Very limited availability on tap in the Boston area. I was shocked to see this hadnít been added to BA yet. This is a new beer style for me. As Steve Greenlee at Boston.com writes, "Itís a light German beer brewed with at least 50 percent wheat, plus coriander and salt. Few brewers make a gose, which is too bad, because it can be quite tasty, with fruity esters, a spicy character, and a tart finish." I never would have expected the wheat content. The head was flat, there was no lace and the liquid was only mildly hazy. It also didnít have the traditional malted wheat flavors. The beerís aroma was on the light side. It smelled like a very pale ale, even though the brewís color was dark gold. Little hop nose, nor on the tongue. The taste was very sweet--not quite to a Bock level but certainly not wheaty. I found it reminiscent to the Blueberry beers often found in New England. The body was moderate while the carbonation was well above average. The aftertaste is brief and leans to the sour side. Worth seeking out just to try a Gose.

Draught @ Doyleís: This one pours a hazy, darker golden color. It has a small white head that leaves some lacing. Lighter but nice aroma. Mainly notes of coriander and wheat. The taste is good. Medium to lighter body. Wheat and coriander are the main flavors. No real sweetness or bitterness. Crisp, refreshing. Pretty nice brew.

Tap at brewery. Pours lightly hazy amber with thick, creamy white head; good retention and decent lacing. Aroma is cereal and biscuit malts, light caramel, dates, pears, grassy and floral hops, and light toast. Flavor is sweet, bready malts forward with supporting light fruit esters, light herbs, and some floral and grassy hops. Medium body and low carbonation.
