3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of sour and tart barnyard funk with some wheat, pepper, salt, and a touch of citrus and floral smells.
T - Starts off with a mix of tart and funky flavors with some light fruit, wheat, coriander, and a touch of salt. Through the middle, some light sourness starts to come through with some floral flavors and a bit of lemon zest. The finish is a mix of wheat with some barnyard funk, tart light fruit, lemon, and a bit of bready malt.
M - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and tart finish.
D - Very drinkable. Interesting take on the style, a but a bit mild and watery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to snifter. Pour is orange colored with a white head. Aromas were of lemon zest, spices, coriander, some light hop aromas. I also got a good amount of ripe citrus fruits from the taste with bitter pith mixed in. Some grainy malt and spices also played a part in making this brew up. Cherry notes. Not bad at all. Interesting.

This was a nice and light brew with a really nice mellow fruit flavor. Light flavors of spices and bread make for a very session-able brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From batch no. 1, called Verloren Gose. Interesting floral and yeast aroma, with some brett. Dark gold pour. The bready taste is close to a wit or Belgian golden ale. Coriander, a little pepper and ginger. It is brewed with wheat and salt, but doesn’t taste salty. It is pretty dry and summery. Another interesting release from Samuel Adams.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
had a sample at this at craft fest but then bought a bottle of batch #1 to do a rating. The color of this beer is the same orange and yellow of the label with barley a finger head and lots of visible carbonation. The aroma is sweet and hits you with that coriander and malt. This a a very sweet wheat beer but still oddly light. Normally i think of this level of sweetness with more high abv beers. The taste is sweet almost caramel and finishes with some sea water. Odd but cool to discover a new style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma- sea salt, seaweed, fruity esters, funk, wet hay
Appearance- funky yellow with sediment and haze
Taste- initially very salty with a mild sweetness, flat thereafter
Palate- medium-body, feels nice in the mouth
Overall- First half of the bottle was pretty good. Second half was cloyingly salty and sweet. Unique but a one-off for me.

Bottle. Light sour malt aroma with a hint of lemon and salt. Hazy golden yellow color with giant off-white head. Slightly sweet wheat malt and lemon peel flavor with a hint of salt in the finish. Light body. Decent - pretty light though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
