Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear gold with an orange gold head. This is like a soft saison. It is thin. Nothing offensive here but not really a gose.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of wheat, bread, lemon grass, grass, and a touch of citrus. It pours a a slightly hazy dull burnt-orange with a three finger off-white head with good retention. The flavor starts some sweet caramel and lightly fruity flavors. There is some breadiness in the background. The finish some light grass, faint citrus, and a touch of pepper. I want to say there’s just the slightest hint of salt, but they may be the "power of suggestion" leading me to believe it’s there. It’s light-medium bodied mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s an okay drinker, but I liked the Leipziger Gose better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours turbid orangy with a dark straw bottom and more orange toward the top. The head is 3-fingers of off-white beauty, and laces well. Nose is tart fruit, very floral and spicy, with spare malt. Tastes tart, fruity, with grainy malt and a wheaty finish. There is a bit of that semi-sweet cloying malt flavor in this that I have experienced in other SA beers. Not bad, but not something that makes me jump for joy.
