4.08/5  rDev -4%

Appearance: Heavily hazed, dirtied yellow body with a thin, dissipating, white head. Nil lacing.

Smell: Sourish, briny nose with a touch of sourdough, wheat, and spoiled lemons that presents just a slightly fruitier quality than its predecessor.

Taste: Slight, muddled graininess, damp straw, and the sourdough with a vein of cream of wheat underneath the staunch, salty, lactic flavors. Jarring jolt of lemon juice bursts onto the scene soon, as with the original, but more of a defined, authentic fruitiness. The coriander remains rather subtle beneath the peppier elements. Still rather salty. Remains sour and tart on the salty, minerally, saliva-rushing finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Medium-plus.

Overall: Skanky and tart, but deliciously, even refreshingly so. Can you imagine? Can y-- Well, you can probably imagine, but yeah. Skanky and tart!

4.16/5  rDev -2.1%

poured from a 22oz bottle, dated 23 Oct. 2013, into a snifter.

Appearance: cloudy, golden yellow. A thin head leaves a good bit of lacing

Smell: lemon, yuzu(?), other citrus, and a touch of malt.

Taste: wow! hints the front of the tongue with a momentary sweet and fruity flavor, but this is quickly followed by strong sour flavor. Lemony and quite sour, but not like the puckering sourness of an actual lemon. Lightly salty.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body; nicely carbonated.

Overall: Better, and perhaps less challenging, than their regular Gose. Loads of well-crafted flavor in a low ABV brew.

On-tap

A - Hazy yellow with a hint of orange and a small white head

S - Salt, tart orange, light sweettarts and vinegar.

T - Tart vinegar, saltwater, light wheat presence, grapefruit and orange peel. Finish is a light tart citrus and slightly bitter grapefruit.

M - Thick, chewy beer with a tartness that lingers on in the finish

O - A good tart gose that isn't as salty as the regular as the fruit tempers down the in your face saltiness of Gose but adds adds an additional complexity that you don't get in the original. It also softens the flavors in the original which makes this one more approachable.

3.19/5  rDev -24.9%

Unlabeled 22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale body. No real head. Lifeless.

Smell - Citrus fruit. Kinda funky and grainy.

Taste - Fruity. Citrus. Faint salt. Some funkiness too. Deep flavor, which is odd.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium body, moderate sourness.

Overall - Somehow Westbrook ruined their Gose. It's not terrible, but I had high expectations.

5/5  rDev +17.6%

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a New Glarus glass

Appearance is a golden yellow. A small amount of head that turns into a bit of lacing

Smell is citrusy and malty.

Taste is a nice sour flavor with citrus mixed in. An awesome malty backbone that lingers for a bit. Fantastic

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated. Not overly harsh. You can tell its only 4%

Overall, their regular Gose was my favorite until this came along. This takes the regular Gose to a new level. By far my favorite Westbrook offering.
