COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most brewers spend a lot of time and effort keeping lactobacillus out of their breweries; it was the first thing we brought in (it still has to stay in the corner though). We blend together two different beers to make Troublesome. The first is a somewhat uninteresting wheat beer and the second is an overly acidic & funky beer fermented solely with lactobacillus. We blend the two beers together with coriander and salt at the tail end of fermentation to create a mild, lemony tartness and a fuller sensation of mouthfeel. And yes, itís hard to make.

baraciisch (3173) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Clear yellow orange in color... Aroma of salt, wheat, lemon zest... Flavor is salt, lemon, lots of coriander... Very light and sessionable... Very muted, not much tartness or saltiness in general... Okay at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LilBeerDoctor (3904) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a very thin white head. Aroma of light fruits, sour wheat malt, apple, light spices. Flavor of wheat malt, light fruits with a faint sour prickliness, coriander. Lots of wheat malt, not really sour, kind of bland. An ok beer, not very similar to other goses that Iíve had. 6/4/6/4/13 (3.3/5)

12 ounce bottle from the House of Bottles in Marengo, IL, served in a Zywiec glass a little below cellar temp. A big, stable, lasting snowy head tops a lightly bubbly, faintly cloudy pale gold body....coriander, lime, light yeasty (sourdough) manifest in a pleasant if rather light nose...body offers a very light citric sweetness, like a touch of tart lemonade, just a touch of saltiness which grows somewhat towards the finish along with an increasing tartness...finish is quite tart, just a touch sweet, juicy, long, with the bare hint of pepper as well, after the mouth has been cleared...body is full, just a touch syrupy, moderately carbonated. This is really beautifully done and just insanely drinkable, I had to really resist chugging this sucker; it could perhaps be just a little more tart/sour, and I think a little more carbonation wouldnít hurt, though with the low alcohol it never comes close to feeling sticky. When I took my several-year sabbatical from this site, this style wasnít even on my radar (or most peopleís) and Iíd only had one traditional German example - now itís everywhere and Iíve had half a dozen without even really trying to find them. This is the first "new" example that Iíve really enjoyed though, and itís got me excited to find some more like it.

scooterbub (1064) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUL 31, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of malt, wheat, coriander, citrus and some sour fruit. Wheat aroma. Has a lighter, refreshing body. Very drinkable and quite enjoyable.

mmahut (1859) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle, thank you mifo. Pours in clear yellow body, light hazy, almost like lime juice, medium creamy white head. Aroma has lactic acid upfront with herbal background, light coriander. I get the salt on the nose as well. Taste has very gentle light salt upfront with refreshing wheat malty notes. Citrusy, lemon like. No bitterness. Tart. Body is medium, high carbonation.

Tart and salty in a beer?!? It's really drinkable and yet super complex. Really intrigued. Perfect for the summer and perfect even after an evening of IPAs because of its uniqueness. Worth trying and worth buying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (2168) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle. A- Plastic, funky. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Funky, tart, slightly sour, slightly salty, subtle lemon. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly funky finish. O- They cal it a wheat with coriander aka witbier on the front and a gose on the back. Definitely leans towards the gose. Not much coriander but plenty of funky sour salty goodness. Nothing super special but refreshing for sure.

S_Side_Smitty (766) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours pale gold in color with a thick white head. Aroma is fermenting grains, fermenting apples & sourness. Taste is sweet muted apples followed by tangy quality. The finish is mild toasty grains that kinda sneak in like theyíre not sure, but are really pleasant when they finally do. It doesnít have the salty slickness Iíve experienced in other goses (just exactly how do you spell gose plurally?), but it is not bad.

sunevdj (4084) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 27, 2016
On tap at CBC 2014. Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Malty aromas of grains with light hoppy aromas of grass and citrus fruits. Also peachy hints. Medium to light bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish.

fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
Tasting at Mattís
Cloudy pale blond color. Nice aroma, deep: wheat, coriander, lactic acid, a bit fruity. Nice wheat flavor, very salty, with light acidity, delicate spices, refreshing. Not too dry, not too carbonated, it has a good mouthfeel.
Very good.
