On-tap at Beachwood BBQ. I don't get the reference in the beer's name, so I suspect that it's a Boont County thing. On to the beer:
Pale yellow colored with golden hues. Not much head on the pour, but not much was expected per style. The aroma has a touch of tartness, and a gentler kiss of salt. Quite mild so far.
The taste has a tartness which is middling. Kisses of lemon and apple give the beer a solid character, and there's just a note of salt. Vague fruitness creeps into the scene. The beer is light bodied and overall refreshing. A hardcore gose lover might expect more, but as a refresher or someone looking to get into the style, this could work.
Serving type: on-tap

Just a slight haze on the yellowish brew, and a modest foam in the small snifter. Carbonation doesn't last particularly well, and the less-than-lively mouthfeel seems to accentuate the overall sharpness.
A very plain flavor of what used to be malt. Moderately tart with lactic acid. Still an echo of grainy sweetness. Overall, this is sharp but not sour with a dry fruit soda sensation.
I don't think this will win too many friends for the style, but it's certainly cheap enough. One of the less offensive brews from Anderson Valley. From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.

The beer pours bright golden color with hints of orange.
The aroma has a sea salted lemon along with some unripen stone fruit and hint of pieapple, similar to Westbrook’s attempt at the style. This however is more bready, less tart, a hint more sweetness.
The flavor follows with that bright lemon juice tartness, hints of guava in the front, which quickly fades onto a bready malt and coriander in the middle, onto a slightly salty and wheat driven flavor on the finish that is very dry.
The obvious comparison is to Westbrook Gose. This is not as tart and complex, but arguably better balanced. Definitely a fantastic summer beer.
