4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Notes dated 5-23-2011: Pours a nice hazy cantaloupe color. About a finger of snow white head quickly dissipates to some fine bubbles on the side of the glass. No lacing. The minimal head and absence of lacing is very appropriate for the style as far as I can tell. More pungent then I remember last year’s (2010) being. There’s sourness to it, but not the typical lactic sour found in a wild beer. This has the sour mash smell. A little bit of putridity goes a long way here and promises something special. Granny smith apples, lemon grass, and coriander (upon suggestion) are all identifiable. One of the more robust and interesting I’ve had of the style. Clean crisp wheat provides the backbone while a refreshing squeeze of lemon keeps this bright. Some mint and cucumber make for a refreshing drink. Moderate, spritzy, refreshing.

Nice sour wheat base with a very subtle salt toward the finish. Hints of coriander that is subtle as well. Overall this is finely constructed gose.

The beer pours a hazy yellow with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The atom aid funky and a little bit salty. It’s got some musty character, some peppery stuff, and a bit of lemon rind.
The flavor is lightly fruity and only a touch tart, the coriander and salt are indeed noticeable but not overwhelming. The beer is lightly sweet up front with a lingering dry finish.
Pretty great stuff, but way low on the sour end compared to what a whole lot of folks are doing w/ this style as of late.
Bottle 750mL. White head not sticky, bright golden colour is beautiful. Spicy aroma of yeasts, clear and cool. Pleasant bright floral tastes of malts and salt, and finishes a subtle flavour of hop and yeasts, pretty good. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2015

Cloudy blond color with compact head. It has a nice citrusy touch, moderate acidity, light saltiness, and a light wheat bread character, everything I need for this kind of refreshing beer.
750 ml bottle, picked up at the brewery last week. Pours hazy deep gold with tons of off-white head; good retention, decent lacing. Coriander; toasty wheat; pepper, nice fruit/peppery notes reminiscent of a saison. Refreshing; lightly tart. I suppose it’s a bit non-traditional (or at least, that’s what I’ve been told), but I’m not big on tradition anyway, and this is very tasty.
