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 thereís just the slightest hint of salt, but they may be the "power of suggestion" leading me to believe itís there. Itís light-medium bodied mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. Overall, itís 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.

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. Itís only my second gose, but I think I liked the Bruery version a little better.
