12 oz. canned 11/01/2017. Turbid, golden pear colored brew with a sticky sponge of foam. Nose of wheat toast, mineral water, grapefruit, peach and maybe a touch of resin. Near-medium mouthfeel with medium-high (but thankfully not explosive) carbonation. Tastes of matzo meal, salt, grapefruit and a touch of pine resin. Long finish shows a nice little touch of honey. Refreshing and lightly tart. oobawa (1795) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2017
Decent tart nose with hints of wheat, honey, and mildew. Pours a slightly hazed gold with a thick white head and moderate lacing. Sour but not overly so, with a tangible grapefruit bite and a salty, wheat-filled back end. Honey adds a good bit of sweetness, though, which grows unpleasant as the pint warms. Gets a bit too fruity and sugary towards the finish. Good sparkly gose feel. Not for me, but it was a free pint. drowland (9161) - Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2017
11/21/17. Thus begins Thanksgiving break! 12oz can from Habersham into a retro Budweiser glass. I wasn’t making the obvious joke at the time, it’s just that I was pouring this beer for Mrs. Owl and she thinks that glass is cute. Hazy orange pour with a nice fluffy khaki head that sticks. Lactic aroma, tart, doughy, grapefruit. Tart flavor, yet smooth, soft wheat, cereal, grapefruit. Tasty enough! Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2017
Hazy Yellow, Smooth white head. Definitely get the grapefruit in the nose, plus some salt air and wine. Taste is very grapefruity, and tart. Not a ton of honey character. Tasty, though... chinchill (5342) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2017
12 ounce can from Atlanta Georgia.

Draft at Craft Brewed Wicked Weed event. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam. Faint lemon, lime margarita-like nose. Grainy aromas. Tart on the palate, slight funk. Honey and salt towards the finish. I don't know, not doing it for me. edgallow (4560) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2017

Upfront, my variation is 4.1% ABV from the brewer. This pours a hazy golden hue into the glass, with a pillowy head that retains well down the pour. The nose is of strong grapefruit and funk. Flavors follow suit, with tropical citrus, Brett in the mid-palate, lending the funkiness transitioning to sweet notes of honey in the finish. The very end of the pour pulls off a nice "hint" of sea salt, true to style. The mouthfeel is active due to carbonation, but is well-balanced by a nice substantial, complex body and juicy palate. A very nice take on the Grodziskie/Gose style (and very glad I got a "homegrown" version of this vs. an AB-InBev mass product...) Very nice offering! emacgee (4708) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2017
I'm such a fucking sucker for gose. I swear. So, hadn't had this one and here I go. Why would you put honey in a gose? Why.... Dogbrick (13987) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Cloudy/hazy soft blonde pour with a profuse billowing head. At least they're not having issues with head retention. Nose shows way too much of the honey (honestly, any is too much) and hints of the grapefruit with a touch of funk. Moderately tart. I feel like all of their gose fail me on the acidity side. They're all barely tart at all..... Grapefruit comes through pretty well. This beer is fine, at best.
Sample at Kurtkeller 025: Eclipse-tastic 01 on 12/23/2016. Hazy straw color with a medium thin white head that burns away steadily to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of funky citrus, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of funky grapefruit, herbal yeast, doughy malt and a pinch of salt. The finish is tart with a zesty lemon aftertaste. Above average overall.
