3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
