COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is a traditional, German-style Gose (pronounced ďGose-uhĒ), using over 20 pounds of coriander spice in each brew. It has a bright lemon zest, coriander aroma and a slight saltiness that rounds out this new summer brew. The beer pours clear, golden orange in color, with a thick white foam head. A refreshingly light and citrusy tartness greets your palate, backed by a bready, wheat malt character.

Poured from a bottle. Very light, golden, transparent, with a slight head. Aroma is also very slight, a faint meadowy íGrain Beltí aroma, not enough to detect any other undertones. Likewise the taste has the a bit of the same meadowy Grain Belt when it first hits the taste buds, but the difference is then immediately revealed with a lemony yet slightly salty finish. So I do get the coriander and saltiness mentioned in the description, but it is not heavy, nor does it linger long. I am not qualified to say whether this is a faithful rendition of a Gose. Often, in cases like this it is a balancing act to create a mass producible facsimile of a beer style that remains reasonably true to traditional recipes and methods. How successful Schellís was at accomplishing this, I will leave for others to judge. I can say it is a pleasant beer. A good summer offering that I suspect will find its way to my patio often.

Schell jumps on the gose/ Berliner bandwagon with this Frankenstein mashup. Clear gold pour. Fizzy white head. Nose is corn, sour, yeast, grape skin. Really watery palate. Tastes like a tangy adjunct lager. Finishes dry and very slightly sour, with faint notes of armpit sweat. A sour beer for people who donít like sour beer. Not a fan.

Carlisle (247) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle. Dark straw color with thin white head that dissipates quickly and some lacing. Salty biscuit aroma. Effervescent salty bite upfront with biscuit malt with caramel notes. Not a particularly long finish but with a bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear red gold pour. Aroma slight grass. Tastes lager salt, sweet bread. Leans into the lager style pretty seriously.

On tap at Twins Stadium. Pours a clear a gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has an earthy wheat with a good amount of bread and a touch of salt. Flavor is similar with earthy grain and bread with a touch of salt.

Aroma is like most scrappy domestics. Flavor is saltwater with aftertaste of copper and a little corn. Not awful but really, really boring.

Nuffield (3858) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2015
Sorry, I didnít get the saltiness. I got a decent vein of fruitiness, and plenty of sweetness, and it wasnít unapproachable at all--quite drinkable. It seemed fairly well supported in the finish, too. Though it was still a fairly hum-drum kind of beer. Bottle.

Slight spicy lager tasting beer. Not my style but itís drinkable. Not something I would get again but Schellís makes some great beers get the Firebrick

Bottle thanks to Nathan. Pours a clear gold with small white head. The aroma is corn malt and salt. Medium mouth, strong wheat, light salt, decent.

Sampled at multiple locations. From 12-oz bottle pours a clear light golden pale colored brew with a fast dissipating head that leaves behind a film top and white ring. Aroma of Golden grain malt, a hint of coriander/orange spice and some floral hops. Taste is light bodied, average carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, seltzer water and a hint of grassy hops. Finish is light, crisp with minimal golden grain aftertaste. The 2014 vintage had more grapefruit and lime zest flavors that reminded me of Grafís 50/50 soft drink of the 70s.
