4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got myself a can thanks to Eric Teusink! Pours cloudy grapefruit, medium off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving some lacing on the glass Light aroma of citrus fruit, spices. Flavor follows, fruity, slightly tart, grapefruit juice, salt apparent. Not really a lot of coriander here (thankfully), a bit of acidity. Light body, bubbly carbonation. This is really quite drinkable. I would sub this for Gatorade on any hot day outside!

12oz. can. It poured a cloudy light golden color with a white head. The aroma was of sour lemons with some metalic notes. The taste was sour with a medium body and big carbonation. There was a big lemon pulp aftertaste that really made it sour. Nice.

12oz can shared by joemcphee with me, blankboy, jercraigs, mabel and gregclow. Cloudy pale yellow, minimal white head. Sharp aroma - salt, mineral and something like .... unripe pear? - no alcohol. Taste- mmmm - lemon and salt. Awesome. Acidic, slick, decent carbonation - quite a tart finish. I love it!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cans courtesy of icehawk. Thanks! A hazy yellowish-gold comes out of the can with a loose white head that quickly fades to a very thin blanket. Minimal lacing. The aroma shows an interesting soft herbal character; that of lavender or perhaps chamomile. An ocean breeze scent follows, with light flowers, and some lemon notes. This is crisp and tart with some citric acidity tingling the senses. There’s a strange dryness in the finish, which is where the salt shows the most. It’s fortunately not overbearing. The whole package here is rather light, which you’d expect from a 4% beer, but there’s still a fair amount of depth to it. Soft herbs, lemon, coriander, floral notes, dust, and salt all noted. Pretty refreshing. A Gose is not my go-to style but this is well done and a nice change from the norm.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at RBWG, the Grand Tasting event. Pours a clear gold with a small white ring for a head. Notes of lemon and lime (almost Gatorade), with salt, sourdough, and not much else. A lot of lemon. Wow. Almost acidic. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, dry mouthfeel. Excellent beer, although the Gozu seemed to work better for me.

[ Bottle ][ RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting ][ 22oz ][ Globe ][ Free ][ 2/8/14 ]
>> Pours a clear straw with low foam. Nose is powerful tropical, sharp and fresh red grapefruit, Thai green orange. Taste is salty lemon lime Gatorade, super citric lemon juice, not too salty. Perhaps a bit too much lemon juice. Like the Gozu better, but this one was bright and refreshing. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at Craftsmen Kitchen and Tap House in Charleston, SC. May be a really good example of the style, but definitely not my style. Almost more like a refreshing cider than a beer. Pours a pale hazy yellow- white head. Sour nose and taste. Salt right there on the palate. Spices there too. Just not all that "beer like" to me. Perhaps I need to expand my horizons.
