3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy medium amber color with a decent white head that leaves lots of stickage. Smells of spicy wheat and a pepper with hints of earth and salt. It kind of smells like a peppery macro wheat beer. the taste is sweet with honey like malts, a bit of a spicy peppery bite to mix things up a bit as well as a bit of mineral earthiness. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a slick sweet mouthfeel. Kind of an easy drinking brew, a bit different. It’s only my second gose, but I think I liked the Bruery version a little better.

Hazy gold/orange color, creamy white head. Bready, yeasty aroma with maybe a hint of saline. Flavor is lightly salty, bready, yeasty, sugar cookie flavors. Tasty.

Pours a cloudy soft orange. Massive billowy head. Fruit, wheat and yeast in the nose. Taste is semi sweet with a hint of that coriander they talk about. The salt in the beer continues to build as a flavor profile, but does balance out. Yeasty and salty on the tongue on the way out. Interesting beer, need to try it with food.

Attractive label. This was definitely an American take on a classic style, but not bad for that (just not as aggressive perhaps). The notes that came out later, as it warmed, projected a floral quality, and it was an earthy, honest sort of beer. Light color, moderately ambitious flavors. Nice effort. Bottle.

1 June 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is straw and dried malt. Thin body and slightly fizzy. Toasted malt and caramel. Meh.

500 ml from Liquor Barn. Straw. Wheat. Yeasty. But not a Gose. Pretty disappointing since I had high expectations for Sam Adams doing a Gose. Not the best six bucks I ever spent.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
16.9 oz bottle, batch 1. Poured into a flute. Half hazy pale yellow color. Thin white head. Some lace. Fruitier than I was expecting. Some tropical flavors, like mango, apricot, peach, strawberries, or watermelon in there. More dry texture. Lighter carbonation. Yeah, there’s a light salty taste, and that’s prominent. Not much sweet or bitterness, really. I should’ve shared this with somebody, because... This isn’t interesting or tasty enough to kill on my own. Yeah it’s kind of salty, but I’m not sure what that adds here. I’m not sure what a "gose" is supposed to taste like, but if this is it, I can’t call myself a fan (nice to learn about a new style, though). Had to toss the last bit out.

Deeply golden with a lasting head. Rich malt aroma. Full nectar with plenty of carbonation. A rich brew with mild sweetness, defined spice essence, and a real skanky finish. I wonder to myself, why even bother bottling a beer like this let alone brewing one. Drain pour.

Bottle from the Folsom Whole Foods. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger foamy white head. Aromas of wheat and light lemon. Med+ body. Flavor is wheat, lemon zest and a touch of peppery spice. The finish is all that but somehow a bit different - maybe it’s citric sour, maybe it’s salt. Overall a very mild flavor, but somehow suggesting a good pastry (without sugar, etc.)

Pretty bland brew, but coriander did add a promised "spice" taste. Cloudy amber color. Described as having a "softness" is accurate.
