COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Leipzig-Style Gose (Here Gose Nothin’®) is often seen being French-pressed through blueberries for a combination destined to be together, so we’ve done the hard work for you with this edition of our Gose by adding the blueberries at the brewery, which unites another layer of fruity complexity in this sour ale already known for its tart, citrusy, lime-like qualities, slight spicy note from added coriander and a noticeable mineral mouthfeel from added sea salt harvested from the shores of France. Cheers

Nice amber and pink color to it. Smells of champagne. Mmmm first sip is salty, tart, very crisp. This would be the best beer for a 95 degree day in any humid location. It would also be perfect with a heavy turkey or duck dinner as it just cleans the palate perfectly. The blueberry is more a floral fruit note vs a strong blueberry and the coriander is barely there until the final notes where it is blended with malty flavors. Delicious and perfectly balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fairly clear ruby, amber, pink and almost pure red coloured body with no head at all and not much movement - just a crazy glow of colours at the bottom - nice. Aroma of super pungently acidic, soured, tart and funky blueberries, yeast, bread, light alcohol, sour funk and some pure raspberries all noticeable - very strong and incredibly nice. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong blueberry flavour at first that almost shows some muffins, coupled with a nice pungent grain and alcohol finish, but the funky berry and malt flavours remain with a big yeast note and ending with a sweet, but very soured finish - nice throughout. Aftertaste shows more fruits and funky hops than anything else that echo that completely on the end with not much malt character and/or complexities with more of a tart and funky blueberry and fruity bite near the end without any pungency or malt flavour - just light sweetness and fruits that take away from the larger flavours right behind. Overall, a nice beer to try and if you can find it - worth carting home if it isn't local! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Milk & Hops in New York, New York on 02-December-2018 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 19-March-2018.

Pours orangish gold with a fast disappearing off white head. Aroma is berries and sour. Flavour is more berries and sour with a perfect crisp light body. Finish is berry sour and nice.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Can picked up in Indy. Pours a slightly hazy pinkish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, tart blueberry, mild salty character and light spice, ok.

Started sampling gose a few years ago, but still haven't had more than a dozen different kinds. This has learns towards the light sour notes, and sort of mild on the saltiness. Blueberry is also on the subtle side. Gives a light blue to purple appearance. Not bad to try, but a little too fruity for me.

Can. Appearance is a reddish color, hazy. Blueberry comes through strong in the aroma. Tart notes in the flavor, cheek tingles, some salt. Blueberry in the flavor as well but not as strong as in the aroma. Finishes fruity and tart.

A little too much blueberry for my tastes. Sourness is pretty potent but the blueberry is so powerful, it distracts from the fruit. Not my favorite in the Wild Series, but its pretty solid.

Sampled on draft at Dad's Pub this beer poured a reddish caramel color with a medium sized foamy pinkish head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The stomach was tart, sour and almost vinegary with a vague berry note. The flavor was astringent with blueberry, yeast and vinegar. Very long finish. Light to medium body. Ok

Can. A- Coriander, slightly tart. A- Pink color, clear liquid, pink head. T- Coriander, tart, salty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sour finish. O- Strong coriander. In fact, that seems like a stupid addition. It overpowers everything. It's more like a sour wit than a gose. Lots of salt and tartness too but the coriander overpowers everything. Hardly taste any blueberry either. Really, it seems like the blueberry only added to the color of the beer and not a thing else. Not really impressed here but not a bad beer by any means.

Knightly Spirits can saved from freezing in the Hilton fridge. Overall a nice gose with some tart fruit but just a hint of salt. Nice enough.
