look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

Had this on-tap at The Griffon in Charleston, SC. This beer is Westbrook's Gose with Yuzu fruit added to it.

A: It poured a hazy golden, orangey-yellow and a white airy two-finger head.

S: The smell of this beer is not my favorite. It's a very citrusy smell, but a sour citrus as opposed to a sweet citrus. The fruity, citrusy Yuzu aroma is extremely prominent (even though I've never smelled a real Yuzu). There was also a malty aroma underneath the sweet fruit and sour Gose.

T: The sourness of the Gose is very prominent right up front. You also quickly get a good taste of the citrusy Yuzu up front. The Yuzu adds a sweetness to the Gose and also another level of sourness other than what the Gose alone offers. I think the fruitiness and sweetness of the Yuzu balances the intense salty sourness of the regular Gose and that's why I like this Gozu a little better than the Gose.

O: This is a very interesting beer. The fruit isn't overpowering and I think it works well with salt and sourness of the Gose. This would be a great summer beer for enjoying by the water.

a - poured a one finger thick fizzy, off-white head into a tulip glass that disappeared quickly. the body was a hazy straw golden color.
s - juicy aroma with some breadiness.
t - much juicier tasting than gose and the wheat comes through more.
m - medium, bubbly.
o - not as tart or salty as their gose and as stated above much juicier. delicious beer but i prefer gose as it is saltier and more tart to me.

BOD 10/23/13. Hazy golden pour with very little head and lacing. The nose is slightly sour citrus against a slight mineral background. Light medium body, low carbonation level but an almost slick mouthfeel. Quite an interesting taste that is a nice balance of sour, citrus and salt. Yuzu juice yields a nice tartness that carries beyond the smooth finish. Another very well crafted ale from Westbrook and a new take on an old style.
