2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Right after Sam Adams charmed me with their Dark Depths, they go and louse things up again with Verloren, a fairly piss-poor attempt at a gose. This beer drinks like a harsh hefeweizen with a faint salty lemon aftertaste on the fade. All the character has been removed from the brew, leaving a pretty, vapid, frustrating pint. Skip this and get another bottle of Dark Depths.

A nice beer. Great for the summertime. Aroma was decent. Grains and light malt with a hint of lemon. Pour was a nice cloudy murky light orange with a one finger white head. Taste was delicious. Sweet malt and a light berry flavor with just a slightly tart lemon and wheat flavor. Very different and refreshing. Nice carbonation. You can taste the mineral-y flavors and the salt just adds a thicker mouth feel. Slightly wet and quick finish.

Pours a mostly clear medium orange color with a decent head that quickly fades. Mostly pale and caramel malt in the aroma but also some lemon and spiciness. Taste is mildly sweet at first with lemon and orange on the tongue, then turns slightly spicy and very salty which dries the mouth on the finish. Slightly tart but fairly smooth as well. Definitely a unique beer to me. Kinda like a malty scotch ale with some added spices. The added salt is weird and dries out the mouth too much. Still worth a try for something unique.

Bottle: dark gold/ orange pour with a thick off white head.
aroma is grainy wheat, earthy, some sweet orange and corriander spice.
flavour is bready, candied orange peel and corriander, has that salty tang to it and a slightly minerally finish.
Hats off to the breweres at BBC for trying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle from Spirits Brick. Poured a far darker shade than I was expecting, orange amber body of medium density sitting underneath an average sized slightly foamy brighter white head. Aroma of wet wheat malts, salt, corriander, grains and slight berry. Far fuller bodied than I was expecting, medium to fulll bodied that really fizzes up with some warmth and average to stronger carbonation. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a slight saltiness that adds a nice touch, bready and grainy with slight corriander that really comes across as berry. Not bad, actually think this one should be a touch colder then what I drank it at.

Pours gold and slightly hazy with a white head. Smells minerally with some lemony hints, grassy splashes and some wheaty undertones. Tastes minerally and dry with some wheat elements on the finish. A good attempt at the style, but not a gose.

Wow. Coriander comes thru the dryness. Dry feel but still sweet. Citrusy. Right at the last second you get a saltiness. Like this beer.

Wow, a saaz balance with a light salty mineral mouth feel. Smells of a wheat beer. It’s mineral balance of taste is unique. Worth a try for a bottle. Wished there were more to compare it to.
