Bottle. Poured a rose wine in the body that was mostly clear, with a small white head, average retention. Faint floral notes on the aroma and salt. Taste is mildly salty, again faint floral notes. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Easy to drink and refreshing. BigBeer45 (1532) - Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle sampled in a glass,
this beer was a clear gold in the glass with a faint red hue, the pour gave a white and faint off-white cover, some nice lacing,
the aromas were wheat, faint berry fruit with a floral note (hibiscus), light wheat/malt with a bread note, malt and fruit sweetness, there was a salt-wheat aspect to the nose,
it had a light flavor of sour fruit, a hint of raspberry, light wheat, a little fruit like sweetness,
there was a sourness at the finish to give some dryness on the tongue,
the mouth feel was light, it had soft to average carbonation and it had a bit of creamy feel on the lips,
the nose reminded me of a fruit ale, the flavor a light sour fruit beer, it was an ok drink. euniceradio (537) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2017

ours a hazy pink color with a thin creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of doughy, bready malt, tart berries, a mild bit of brine. The taste is tart berries, cherries, cranberries, pale malt, salty finish. Medium bodied, bright, good balance Rumbero (85) - Miami, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2017
from a fresh 12 oz bottle:
aroma - floral hibiscus up front and center, hay and light bready malts, salt with hint of coriander.
appearance - deep gold/pale amber with a reddish tint, a 1/2" white head with low retention. perfectly clear.
taste - just a bit tart not quite sour. the flowery hibiscus flavor combines well with the mild bitterness, which stays at the palate, the saltiness and the spices.
palate - medium light body, but with a substantial, almost rich texture. lively carbonation and slight astringency. finishes long, tangy and smooth with persistent saltiness.
overall - refreshing and light as a good gose should be. the hibiscus gives it its own identity and makes it more interesting that a straight gose.
