3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20120629 bomber from Wine Source. As SA beers go, this is a great one. As gose goes, so so. Lightly clouded medium amber with small lasting white head. The aroma is peach cobbler with some mildly sour doughy notes. Nice coating mouth feel but just slightly tart and refreshing. A bit sweeter than Iíd hoped, but with the pleasant late esters of a good hefe. Not a bad attempt, but light years behind the Triumph gose I pine for.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild herbal aroma, pours a clear amber with a full white head. The salt and the spices create a complex beer, thatís light on the palate, and refreshing on a warm summer night. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle poured a golden yellow color, aromas of salt water, and a touch of light citrus. Flavors are all salt, almost as much as a brine treatment. Each sip made me want more to quench my thirst, saltest beer Iíve had for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty aroma has firm fruity and yeasty notes. It pours a clear golden amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, off-white head. Flavor has a malty core with subtle notes of apple and banana and a hoppy, but not bitter, undertone. Or is that coriander? I get a touch of that. Salt? Well, a teeny bit of salt. Salt in beer? Thatís the most unheard-of thing Iíve ever heard. Ha ha. (Or tasted.) OK, enough being a wisenheimer. Smooth texture has firm body and a fair bit of fizz, leaving a rather persistent tingle on the lips and tongue. I hope that Samuel Adams keeps us this series.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange gold with a dense off white head. Beautiful lacing. Wheaty malty base, with a citric hint and a very slightly salty finish. Subtle, balanced, and actually quite refreshing. Sam Adams has hits and misses, and continues growing bigger than anyone probably ever expected. But itís nice to see them staying true to their craft brewing roots and brewing wacky styles like Gose.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy orange with a large sizzling off-white head. Smells of caramel and a touch of spice. Taste is sweet with a bit of pepper notes and a slight mineral taste. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Verloren finishes with a bit of bitterness and mineral kick.

It poured a hazy orange/amber color with a white head. The aroma was notes of coriander, lemon peel and some pepper. The taste was wheat bread, pepper and a hint of light salt. A very good Gose.
