On tap at ABC Microbrewery. A clear golden beer with a white head. Aroma is pickle-y. Also tastes like pickle, but the cucumber, lime, and salt are recognizeable as forming that briney pickle taste. I feel like there's dill in there even, though the description makes no mention of such a thing. It's light on the palate so there's no unwelcome aftertaste; there's just a light pickle finish. Perhaps a beer that tastes like a pickle shouldn't work, but they got the palate just right so that it does. They really thought this one through. svandyke (259) - USA - SEP 16, 2017
12oz bottle- Lots of foam initially, but it dissipates quickly. A dull gold color. Lots of cucumber in the nose, with a bit of mowed grass too. Taste is has lots of dirty cucumber with just a hint of lime. Little salt- a bit more would make it more refreshing. Still I suppose I might like it if I didn't have cucumber for every meal on my archaeological dig... As is... meh. piraat83 (40) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Pours light golden color. Heavy cucumber taste with slight saltiness. Not what I'm looking for in a gose, but not bad either. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2017

Pours a golden color with a white foam head. Aroma is strong cucumber with some salt and lime. Flavor is tart, heavy on the cucumber with a good dose of salt and mild lime. Well-carbonated and crisp. Interesting and actually pretty good.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/28/2017. Pours lightly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge cucumber; with some lemon, lime, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas; way too strong on cucumber, but not offensive. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, cucumber, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, coriander, sea salt, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness and light yeast/coriander spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, cucumber, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, coriander, sea salt, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, coriander, salt, cucmber, lime, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from tartness. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic, fairly saline, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is a delicious gose. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, coriander, salt, cucmber, lime, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mellowly tart/acidic/drying finish. Really well balanced classic gose and fruit/vegetable flavors; very flavorful for the low ABV. If the nose was more balanced, I’d have no complaints. A very enjoyable offering, and very nice style example. milewide (2332) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Nothing but cucumber in both aroma and taste. No lime, coriander or salt. Cloudy golden color.
