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. I’m not sure I could drink this as a session brew but one glass a day should keep the Fall away. Great summer beer.

Can from Beerlover_Ben. Many thanks! Aroma of buttermilk, greek yoghurt, lemon and some vinegar. Also salty notes, like a turkish Ayran. Very light and easy drinkable. Lactic sourness. Special beer, not bad, should be refreshing on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).
