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 from CANBIF 2014, shared at the 2014 end of year Ottawa tasting. Pale straw pour with an off white head. Epson salt, lemon rind, wheat and turnip. The nose just didn’t follow through into the palate though where it turned into flat lemonade (un-sweetened) with high carbonation and mild body and a slightly dry finish.

Salmoniform (1073) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Poured from tap to glass. Clear straw hue with fizzy white head that lingered. Aroma is corn, straw, lactic, butter. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a tart finish. Overall this is an ok brew but it’s I definitely get DMS and diacetyl.

rejtable (1454) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
I really liked this one. Pours clear gold with lots of head. NOse is lemon pledge, some cereal. Flavours of lemon, wheat, some epsom salt and floral notes. Taste light sweet, light tang. Mouth is pretty light with some acidity. Really drinkable, and this is not typically a style that works for me.

Fritz123 (1145) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle shared by Jeff at the Dolphins tailgate. Snifter pour. Light golden yellow with a slight haze. Small head and some lacing. The aroma is light fruits, tartness, cereal, and coriander. The taste is similar with coriander, light floral and fruitiness, cereal, and finishes with a slight salty dryness. Not my favorite gose but certainly drinkable. Moderate carb.

slowrunner77 (6160) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Really nice example of the style. Subtle but complex. restrained funk, frutiness, spices and salt combine to make a wonderfully refreshing tart brew.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a glass. Hazy light orange with big white head with some staying power. Aroma is coriander, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and good small bubble lacing. Taste is tart, coriander, some yeast, and nice salty finish. Really good gose.
