4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got in a BIF from oline73. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 6/8/2016. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of bit sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast. salt/spice, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate tart/sourness and light peppery spice on the finish; with lingering notes of sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, white grape, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/sourness balance, and no astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from sourness/acidity, and lightly puckering. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, acidic/saline, and fairly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an excellent Gose! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; even with the higher amount of acidity and sourness for the style. A very enjoyable offering.

Several cans enjoyed at M&D’s wedding on Jekyll Island, October 2016. Mouthfeel is light bodied, tart and salty. Very easy drinking with a great balance of tart wheat, salinity and a hint of lime. Enjoyable summer gose.

12oz can. Looks light. Aroma of sourness/tartness, pale malts and wheat, light salt, light herbs, and light citrusy notes. Flavor exactly what you’d want from a nice light gose, but it’s not as good as some others. Average to lighter texture. A pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned 4/7/16, drunk 7/24/16.
Light haze to this muted gold body. Small white head is thin and shows low retention.
Nice peachy fruitiness with moderate salinity, soft, creamy malts and biscuity, light wheat. Very solid with no flaw or alcohol.
Floral and lightly cidery, with soft lactic character, low carbonation and a good maltiness. Nicely attenuated. Not overly salty or sour and light and easygoing for a good summer quencher. Like the lingering lemon juice character...
