12 oz can; light gold color; fruity aroma; slightly tart, fruity flavor - almost more sweet than tart; could be tarter; lacking the dry, salty finish of a gose eRock_2013 (475) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 Recently was able to sample this fresh on tap in Asheville, although not at the brewery. Anyhow this may be my favorite offering from Hi Wire so far, as I personally have not been impressed by their other brews I’ve sampled. This was a good mild Gose, not too far behind Westbrook’s Gose from SC in terms of flavor. Fresh and light bodied, this was one of the least tangy Goses I’ve tried, but I enjoyed the switch-up. Rounded out with a salty finish and a wheaty aftertaste. Balanced and refreshing.

Can. Pours a light and slightly hazy straw color with a thin head and with those oddly lovely gose aromas... a whiff of sea air and a little bit of funky barn. I’m sitting here fairly happy until I take my first sip and I get that kind of flabby honey and dough presence that accompanies a Caribbean lager or something. The slightly tart presence comes through shortly thereafter, but I’m lost... adrift. My depression has hit a level that is now almost too much to bear. Err... sorry... that was a bit overly-dramatic. Still, it almost does have that corn lager edge up front and that takes away from whatever sour and salt might push through to the finish. The salt is subtle enough that I can’t pick it up and the sourness also needs a kick. As a gateway gose, this might be OK, but I just can’t find it interesting enough to reach that decision on my own at this point... Shag (3026) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2017
A pale yellow color with a white head. A faint lemony aroma. The flavor is actually as sweet as it is sour with some lemon maringue and some saltiness. Overall ok but lacks that sour punch of a great gose. oobawa (1500) - Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2017
Fairly tame gose, a slightly tart, wheat-tinged middle meshing with a shitload of Himalyan salt. Never reaches much sourness, almost like a very bready kristallweizen instead of a gose, but it finishes clean and seems to be disappearing easily enough. Meh nose, good texture. Decent brew.
