From can. Aroma is citrus. Lemony-yellow color, pretty clear, with vanishing white head. You can almost see the salt. Average carbonation. Very lemony-sour to start and quite salty-tart finish. No bitterness. Medium body. Very intense gose, way stronger than typical. Don’t really taste the wheat. Nice to sip on, but a little too strong and salty for my taste.

Thanks to RichardBerg & Thomas! 355 ml. can split with Kogymo. Opaque – hazy golden, little white head. Nose is very USA heavily lactic sour, puckering cow milk yoghurt, Vitamin C, stomach acid, tart, puckering lactic wheat. Taste is this super lactic / Vitamin C puckering typical USA taste to the max, tart wheat, lemon acid, stomach acid, artificial grapefruit,… Tad high carb. wheat body, drinks very easily. Enjoyable for sure but way too American. The words traditional & German should be used in the commercial description in my opinion, this is über-American & this tastes nothing like (is def. not on par) with Bayerischer Bahnhof Original Leipziger Gose (which to me bafflingly scores way lower than this on RB).

Poured from a 12 oz can into snifter. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Slight head. Aroma is lemony wheaty smell. Taste is combination of sour and saltiness. The two flavors play off of each other in an interesting battle. I liked this beer more and more with every sip.

16/XII/14 - 12Fl. Oz. can from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - canned: IX/9/14 (2014-1511) Thanks to Klaas for the can!
Hazy pale yellow to beige beer, off-white head, falls down immediately, non adhesive. Aroma: overripe fruits, funky, lemony, banana peel, pretty weird. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very lemony, vinegar, very sour, funky, dairy notes, yoghurt, very weird. Aftertaste: bit fruity, some grapefruit, sourish, lemony, more butter milk, vinegar, stomach acid (so as not to use the word "vomit"). Interesting for sure.
