3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half-pint draft for "Union Craft Tap Takeover" at Old Line Fine Wine, Spirits & Bistro in Beltsville, MD. Not the biggest fan, but I think that’s just because I don’t really like the Gose style of beer, no matter how much I try to like it. Very sour, and tart, just a bit too much for my likings.

Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso. Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is tart lactic notes, some wheat, and a touch of sea breeze. Flavor was nice tart notes, salt ocean, with a light twist of lemon zest. Very enjoyable, tart but easy to drink. Girlfriend loved this one. I look forward to trying this one again.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Taste the Rarity
After a long afternoon of tasting, this was the last pour of the day for me, and had I had it earlier I would have camped out here as this tied Zombie Dust for best of the fest for me.....take that FWIW as I’m a sucker for the style.
Pours a hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is summer at the beach. Peaches, salt, floral. Lightly tart, lighly salty, really quenching and one that just was so pleasing I wanted more after every sip.

Aroma is initially the familiar funk of a gose but then gives off some sour fruit too. Flavor is tart and sweet ( but not too sweet) with a sour slightly briney finish. Very nice sour.
