3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Hazy amber, moderate to large frothy of-white head, fairly nice lacing. Soft sweaty nose, a bit wheaty and mealy. Pale fruity wheatiness up front, a little tart, some pink peppercorn like flavors. Very interesting. Needs a bit more umph, seems to start of nice but it falls off quickly. Tiz clean. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. As it warms I get a bit of that corriander. Sort of a pale wheaty beer with non-traditional spices. Not bad, certainly different.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of tangy dark fruit and bread. Flavor is a fluffy biscuit with stale fruit and stagnant water. Oily onm the tongue. Yes, this is supposed to be a reproduction of an old style but c’mon. Up the ante a bit.

20oz bottle from bevmo
Pours clear straw yellow with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly leaving some light lacing. Aroma of berries, honey and sweet caramel. Taste of berries, lemon, bready and herbal. A lot going on that just didn’t mesh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle - $5.98 at Sherlock’s in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clouded, dark amber-gold body with a short-lived, whitish head.
Smell: Sweetish, spicy, from the honey and caramel coated wheat and cereal grains and the coriander and continental hops.
Taste: Honey atop malted wheat with an added edge of sweet caramel squares. Pinch of ground salt. Then, a bit of spiciness from the German hops, followed by a nice bite from the coriander. Muddled citrus character. Small fruity hints of tart pear and yellow apples. Also some light banana. Remains malty through to the end with final pops of salt, spice, and sweetness on the soft finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth wheat character.
Overall: Tasty, with a cheerful approachability as all the flavors plan very nicely with each other.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours an orange-amber color with a large white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat and lemons in it, as well as some salt. The flavor has some toffee and biscuit malt. There is also a bit of saltiness and some very light tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I haven’t had a lot of goses, but this one was as good or better than the other ones I have tried.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear dark gold, with a funny aroma that’s hard to explain. Fresh nose of wildflowers, wheat, honey, pear, coriander...neat and different. Pleasant taste with a peppery fruitiness and some light saltiness (in a good way), light pear and honey flavors as well

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Barely an aroma of salty pool malt. Weird and slight. Golden red, good lacing. Slight head good lacing. Salty tart sweetness. Aggressive on palate with carbon and salt and neutrality. Some white flavor.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear yellow gold from the bottle with thin white head and no lacing. Aroma of soury sweet fruits and corn malts. Taste is like a sour pale lager, no real salt like a normal gose. Meh.
