Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body under a one finger frothy off-white head that left some heavy lacing. The nose is slightly briney with some pale malt sweetness. The flavor is not quite as intense on the saltiness as many of the other beers of this style that I’ve had. Slightly sweet up front with some bready malt and a slight citrusy note. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty interesting, but not quite as vibrant as most other efforts I’ve had. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
So this is weird. Aromas of bread, salt,cardboard, some unidentifiable ingredients... Maybe coriander. Salty flavors, bready.. Some herbal notes. Not sure I can finish the whole bottle. Not bad.. Just weird. devman171 (1223) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Draft at rustico, pours yellow with medium white head. Aroma is ligth bread and sweetness. Taste is maily sweet lager style, no salt or tartness to speak of. not good TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Lemon and tartness on the nose. Citrus and a bit of wheat on the palate initially, finishing tart. Not much in the way of spice even though that is what the description says. shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Golden orange color. I believe the keg was being kept too cold which killed a lot of the flavor. The spiciness is nice and overall refreshing. The style is difficult and almost bland by design. Sam does a good job of respecting the style and making it just interesting enough.

Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange pour with a frothy off-white head. The saltiness jumped out at me before I knew to look for it. Lots of expected wheat beer notes but it is the odder ones that distinguish it. A lot of hard minerals. Some funky citrus happening here as well. Unusual, but cannot help thinking that someone poured a Margerita in my beer. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
Murky light orange pour with a light beige head. Aroma is spice. Taste is wheat, little peppery in the finish. Didn’t get much salt. Heavier finish than the only other gose I have tasted. Tasty none-the-less. Nice lacing. Stuedmaster (352) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 13, 2014
I don’t get much from the aroma, a slight wheat malt nose with a little spiciness. Pours golden orange with a small head that is gone quick. Nice flavor, kind of sweet and sour with a mineral accent. Fruity and spicy, very crisp and refreshing. Light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and clean, somewhat sour finish. This is the first gose that I’ve had, would like to explore other brands. I like it as well as witbier, it is similar to that style. nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2014
500ml fake me out bomber. Glowing orange body. Thick, steady off-white head. The aroma is nice and true to style, a hint of wheaty funk, salt, lemon. Seems like it is fighting a rugged battle with the Sam Adams base ingredients and wins, kudos to the brewer. Unique, querky. The salt is noticeable, drying out the still present banana wheat tones. Not quite crisp enough to be considered authentic, some medium malts hold it back from that. Enjoyable enough, but doesn’t have a crisp, sharp, clean bite like you might hope for. nearbeer (5669) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2014
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Pint on tap. Lightly hazy amber with a lasting ring of foam. Mild aroma of toast and a hint of lemon. Mild flavor of toast, lemon and lightly salted gum. Light body has high carbonation and a nice balance.
