Bottle. Hazy light amber color, huge off white head, decent lacing. Aroma of feet and lemon polish. Taste is sour grapefruit, lemon, caramel. onceblind (10330) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Tap at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear dark gold, with a funny aroma that’s hard to explain. Fresh nose of wildflowers, wheat, honey, pear, coriander...neat and different. Pleasant taste with a peppery fruitiness and some light saltiness (in a good way), light pear and honey flavors as well thomas15 (689) - Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Barely an aroma of salty pool malt. Weird and slight. Golden red, good lacing. Slight head good lacing. Salty tart sweetness. Aggressive on palate with carbon and salt and neutrality. Some white flavor. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Slightly hazy orange-brown body, medium off-white head. Soapy nose with berries and dust. Soapy, herbal body with notes of potpourri. Tame and lifeless. jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a clear yellow gold from the bottle with thin white head and no lacing. Aroma of soury sweet fruits and corn malts. Taste is like a sour pale lager, no real salt like a normal gose. Meh.

22oz bottle-pours gold with a tight light tan head. Aroma is sweet light/medium malt, lemon, salt. Taste is sweet light/medium malt-some caramel, lemon, salt, slight earthy hops. Soft carbonation. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2012
22oz bomber poured into a weizen glass.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a one finger white head. Not much in the way of head retention and lacing.
Aroma of citrus and coriander. Pineapple is quite predominant.
The flavor starts out with citrus along with a peppery spicyness and a distinctive iced tea flavor. The lemony tastes helps this stand out. A little bit of yeast flavor reminiscent of a hefe along with a touch of salt. The saltiness is very light but it is there. Mouthfeel is fairly full with a sticky finish.
Overall, this is just an ok beer. It is the only Gose I have sampled so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I was expecting more salt and more tartness. It really seem like a lower quality wheat beer.

Bottle from Jessup Plaza. Pours old gold with an inch of khaki foam that doesn’t leave any lacing. Not much on the nose. Bits of lemon and salt on the tongue plus a bit of tartness as well. finishes clean. Solid but I tho magsinva (1423) - Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle - pours clear orange with a white head. I’m not getting a lot on the nose, some citrus a little spice. Taste is salty sweet with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Meh. Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2012
A little sweet with some tastey spice notes. Medium head, full bodied. Tastes like a belgian ale. Not too bad.
