I will be the first to admit that I am far from a style expert. Ultimately I like what I like and if it is not to style that does not bother me. Gose is one of those styles that not many breweries are making so my experience is limited. My favorite is Westbrook’s which is probably an extreme example of the style as it is very tart and salty.
This one from Tributary is on the other side of the scale and drinks more like a hefeweizen than what I think of when someone says gose. Appearance is a nice cloudy orange color with a decent white head. The little growler retained the carbonation better than the large one did.
Aroma and taste again are similar to your standard hefeweizen with a nice light fruit character and some coriander. Finish is clean and very refreshing. Tributary’s Gose might be a good introduction to the style for those that are not familiar with a gose with its very low salt and almost no sourness. I would prefer a more tart and salty brew.
