Description 

A dash of salt. A touch of tart. That’s what makes this unique German-style wheat beer a seasoned professional at serious summer thirst quenching. With its glowing golden color, peach & citrus nose followed by a prickly mouthfeel that leaves a gentle tartness and a dash of salt on the palate, the Old Pro never fails to bring you back for another sip.

The first impression is a salty, sour aroma that is followed by zesty coriander and hints of orange peel and lemon. As it warms, there is a very light bready aroma. The beer has a milky white hue when first poured, then settles to a cloudy yellow. Its thick, pillowy, white head eventually collapses to a ring. The flavor is bracingly tart and moderately salty. It is very well attenuated and finishes dry and clean with refreshing acidity. Additional carbonation would complement this beer's quenching qualities. Although the cutting tartness in this beer bears closer resemblance to some examples of Berliner Weisse than is typical for a Gose, it is a fine example for those wishing to explore sour beers.
