3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is like most scrappy domestics. Flavor is saltwater with aftertaste of copper and a little corn. Not awful but really, really boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
