Disco Godfather by Platform Beer Co. (being judged as a BJCP Style 27, Gose), is a fun, easy-drinking beer that's quite approachable. While the color (“Pretty in Pink”) would suggest a more prevalent fruit component, in taste, it comes through in more subtle, restrained lemony tartness, suggesting Smarties candy. The salty, mineral component of the brew is in all phases of the beer experience, beginning in the aroma and carrying through to finish on the back of your tongue. It offers medium carbonation and the overall dryness of the mouthfeel enhances the Gose impression. Disco Godfather might be a smidge too salty for some folks, and the fruit (raspberry and marionberry) component seems underwhelming, but overall seems like a solid, tart Gose that features some terrific drinkability.
