2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at France 44 in Minneapolis. 072514 printed on the bottle neck. The pour is crystal clear yellow golden with a well formed 1 ½ inch head that is quite lasting. The aroma is semi-sweet cereal grain malt along with a hint of the spice and salt. The taste is the cereal grain malt, slightly sweet, hint of lemon citrus, slightly dirty, muddled floral coriander and finishing with some of the salt. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and a lingering malt sweet, floral and salt after taste. Just OK.

12 oz. bottle. Clear golden orange color with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, light bready notes. Flavor is mild citrus, medium coriander, and mostly sweet bready notes. Maybe a twinge of saltiness. Medium bodied. Finishes on the sweet side. This is kind of flabby, to be honest. Wish it were less sweet.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazed pale straw yellow with a quickly fading white crown. Aroma is faint and bready with wood and coriander. Taste is salty and bready with coriander, faint wild notes and finishes semi-sweet. Only my 4th beer in the Grodziskie/Gose/Lichtenhainer trio and not in any hurry to try number five.

Best by 15SEP13
Light gold with a solid cap of dense white foam. Smells of coriander, salt, lemon pith, some grain and a little banana and clove. Flavor is nice and floral from the start, some gardenia, sweet honeydew and sweet pear. Some grain and banana. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a wet finish. Nice beer, not quite the gose I’m used to, but nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold Color, Medium Head, Some Lacing. Did not get any aroma in this one. Taste like sparkling seltzer water. Carbonated and salty. Did not get coriander at all. Some wheat sour on finish. Never had this style before, so not sure what to expect. Definitely different and weird but that is a lure when you try out different beers. Not necessarily very pleasant or enjoyable but drinkable and interesting so I want to try and explore a couple more beers in this style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a Kölsch glass... this is actually a strikingly beautiful glass of beer, bright golden, perfectly clear with lots of tiny bubbles ascending into a big rocky white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is mild & sort of clean... there is some doughiness to it, some lemon rind, and a good bit of coriander.
The flavor is crisp and very forward with coriander, perhaps a little too forward... but it’s not an unpleasant flavor, and not one that eclipses the other flavors of the beer too awful much. The beer displays a nice level of soft bitterness throughout. The saltiness is really very low, as is the tartness... but both are detectable. It’s got a good light breadiness without being overwhelmingly yeasty. There is nothing especially exciting happening here, unless you’re a fiend for coriander... but it’s all really well balanced and nicely put together... easy drinking but with enough flavor and subtlety to keep you thinking.
So what are people hating so much about this one? I can’t find much offensive about it unless you’ve got an aversion to coriander... which I’m sure lot’s of folks have. But it’s crisp and refreshing, it’s easy to drink without any real flaws. Pretty enjoyable beer all together.

Described by Four Firkins as "Medieval Gatorade," so of course had to try a bottle of it. Clear golden pour with nice amount thicker white head. Taste was coriander and a bit floral. Finish was mildly spicy and salty. Consistent palate.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at New Bohemia served in a pint glass. Ordered only because it was the only decent happy hour option. Little to no aroma and, shockingly, little to no taste. Grainy taste not very memorable. Meh.

Not exactly a shining style of the beer but if this isn’t a summer crusher I don’t knwo what is.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large fluffy-foamy orange-white head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was a bit tart, salty and bready. The flavor was tart citrus, coriander and salt - nicely mixed and with a pleasant subtlety - with an undertone of bread and Sprite soda. Medium finish of Sprite, salt and bread. Medium body. Pleasant.
