hopsbreath (24) - St Helens, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Notes dated 5-23-2011: Pours a nice hazy cantaloupe color. About a finger of snow white head quickly dissipates to some fine bubbles on the side of the glass. No lacing. The minimal head and absence of lacing is very appropriate for the style as far as I can tell. More pungent then I remember last year’s (2010) being. There’s sourness to it, but not the typical lactic sour found in a wild beer. This has the sour mash smell. A little bit of putridity goes a long way here and promises something special. Granny smith apples, lemon grass, and coriander (upon suggestion) are all identifiable. One of the more robust and interesting I’ve had of the style. Clean crisp wheat provides the backbone while a refreshing squeeze of lemon keeps this bright. Some mint and cucumber make for a refreshing drink. Moderate, spritzy, refreshing.

Bottle shared by Puddintane. Thanks Pud! Clear gold color with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and peach with some tartness and brine. Sweet fruit and estery flavor with a sweet finish.

Steve_0 (2575) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle in Bend with my wife. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Tangy, lemony, biscuit, hibiscus, somewhat salty, and herbal aroma. Taste is sour lemons, salty, herbs, basil, urine and slightly funky with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Cool beer.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. A little salty, a little tart, some lemon and spice. Nothing outstanding, but not bad at all.

djd07 (3468) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a clear orange gold with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is salt, coriander, and floral. Thin mouthfeel with nice salt, funk, oak. Easy to drink, very good.

Bottle. Nose is perfumy and tart. Taste is only slightly tart with some citrus character. Really good but not puckering

brystmar (1234) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Earthy, herbal, wheaty, interesting. Surprisingly strong coriander (& thyme?!) presence. Could use a tad more wheat and sourness. Totally different from Westbrook Gose, and my preference is for that brew.

ineedbeer (697) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 23, 2014
I believe this is a 2012 bottle. Aroma has a medium citrus note with moderate coriander character. Moderately strong, musty wheat notes. Light tannins and funkiness with a bit of staleness. Pours a surprisingly clear, pale yellow gold with a big, fluffy white head with seemingly never ending retention. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is moderately musty and funky with medium citrus and coriander. Medium light acidity and light saltiness. Light tannins with moderate red apple cider notes. Faint bitterness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a decent beer, but I think the age has muddled the brightness I would expect in this style of beer. The cider notes are also a bit unpleasant.

1 finger head, cloudy orange. Coriander dominates the nose. Slightly sweet. Taste is nice. Very wheat heavy. The salt hit at the very end. Sweet and lovely spice. Quite sessionable.

bytemesis (3076) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with AJ and friend. Pours hazy butterscotch, medium off-white head, dissipates fairly slowly and laces well. Aroma is wheat, lemon, a touch of cardboard. Flavor is wheat, lemon/citrus, a bit of salt, biscuit. Light body, high carbonation. Easy to drink for sure, but not a lot going on here.
