4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Piggly Wiggly, Myrtle Beach, SC. A very interesting beer indeed. A usual Hefe nose rises from a classic German wheat beer body of cloudy yellow/off-white deliciousness. While there is little lacing, the beer is true to style being unfiltered and offering some little residue at the bottom of the glass. A mixed bags of flavors hits the palate on first sip, acidic lemon hits the sides of the tongue and throat but instead of some sours, the flavor evolves into a bready, salted peanut taste that is quite unique. Iím not sure I could drink this as a session brew but one glass a day should keep the Fall away. Great summer beer.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/21/2016. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, peach, pineapple, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, light vinegar/funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, peach, pineapple, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, light vinegar/funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic sourness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, peach, pineapple, sea salt, coriander, wheat, cracker, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/sourness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from acidity; that lightly increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately acidic/saline, and fairly bready/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero alcohol warming as expected of 4%. Overall this is an excellent gose! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; even with the higher acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from can a hazy pale yellow with limited head. Aroma was wheat, hay, lemon, as was taste. A bit funky and sour with an excellent balance. Wheat in the finish with some lingering sour. Not a huge Gose fan but I really enjoyed this one, my favorite of the style for sure.

Can. Sorry but i just dont like the style. This tastes like sour purple soda. Or beer that someone dissolved a drug into. Sour, tangy, bitter and not interested.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, glad to be #667. Poured from the can. A light honey yellow with a slight cloudiness. Nose is a interesting mix of sweetness and funk. Palate is carried on the backbone of a smooth not overdone saltiness. Strong lemon, a little wheat through the middle. Nice sour finish on the tongue. Great for the style.
