My first new beer of 2018, enjoyed on draft at the Charleston (SC) Half Marathon After-Party. Was excited to see this limited release brew available at the finish line, and glad they were still willing to give me the full pint even though I only ran 13.1 miles for it, haha. Poured a nice hazy golden amber color with long-lasting white foam, with a mild caramelized-sweet wheat aroma and slight hints of lemon zest and coriander on the nose. Refreshing soft wheaty taste with a smooth light palate and a noticeable touch of both salt and pepper, but the salinity is minimal and hardly approaches anything like a classic gose, and the finish is overtly sweet to the degree that it covers up the salinity. To me this seems to be a gose-leaning summer wheat ale - not true to any particular style and overall not particularly flavorful, but still was pleasant to drink and not a bad way to replenish your sodium level after a long run!

Draft at The Dover Brickhouse, Dover, NH. Completely clear amber, golden color, thin head. Aroma is light grain, salt. GenDV138 (7828) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2016
Wheat backbone with a weak grass and coriander in the back end that helps this dry out the texture, Body is very light, crisp after taste with a spirited carbonation level. Overall, I can see why this would be great after running a marathon. But I had to share my pint with a friend because it is pretty weak and kind of bland.
16 oz pour on draft at Boston Beer Garden in South Boston. Served in a shaker pint. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of butter, herbs. Tastes of herbs, spices, light salt, stone fruit, malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish. No tartness. Another tart-less "gose" from Sam Adams.

Draft at thirsty moose tap house. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much lacing. Not a lot on the nose. A bit of salt on the tongue but pretty faint. A slight tart note on the finish. Not even close to being the best example of the style.

Golden-brown pour, small white head. Aroma of wheat and a bit of fruit and malt. Flavor is wheat, salt, spice, light fruitiness. Not the most exciting gose.

Tap: Light golden color, about 1/2 finger head. Not very aromatic but enough to get an idea of the flavor. Light bitter lemon with a nice complimentary coriander spice. Only available along the Marathon Route and one select pub. Must have if in the Boston area sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2014
Tap. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small head. The wheat flavor is prominent and the coriander adds some nice spice that goes very well with the mild lemony sourness. Pretty god overall and very drinkable.
