Notes/Commercial Description:
It's no secret that we like to party, and sometimes it gets wild. So we took the Westbrook's refreshing Gose and cranked up the volume a bit, adding a massive dose of citra & amarillo hops, then fermented it with various strains of brettanomyces... Go Westbrook, it's your birthday, get funky!!

this is amazing, such a puckery experience, as if the regular westbrook gose could get any better, well, it did. the addition of brett to the mix t play with the lacto is really what makes this different. its pale yellow and hazy in its look, very heady, with a ton of sediment in there too. the nose and taste are both tangy, more like the gozu on the fruitiness than anything else. the saltiness is there too, clean though for its yeasty look, and really really dry and brightly carbonated. the funk of the brett adds a layer to the sourness of the lacto, and the result is splendid. the fruitiness has a grapefruit character, maybe from some hops? you dont usually see hoppy gose. its also got a peachy creamy thing going on, which really works in the style. this is easily the most evolved example of a gose i have ever had, wild yeasts on both the hot and cold side, which make this all the more interesting from a process standpoint. thanks to drlovemd87 for sharing this with me, what a treat! perhaps this is the most refreshing beer ever made...

Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

I always said we needed more porn-ish references in beer names, but I think we can do better than sophomoric soft-core garbage from Florida. Regardless, this stuff pours a mostly clear straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet/tart lemon, ruby red grapefruit juice, and a hint of almost peat-like phenols in the background (not unlike an Islay Scotch). The taste continues the sweet/tart lemon tradition, bolder now (nearly bleeding into a well-sculpted version of Country Time...in a good way...), backed up by what is now clearly a briny character (again, much like certain Islay Scotches). And, boy-howdy, does it work! The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this was a decidedly enjoyable beer, my favorite of the day. The slightly-increased heft allows the tartness and brine to dance their lovely dance longer on the tongue, allowing more of the spectators (ie. my tastebuds) to recognize the quality of their motions. Good times, indeed.
