Notes/Commercial Description:
This is our interpretation of Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), a traditional German-style sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback.

4.3/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass at slightly-warmer-than-fridge temperature.

L – Hazy straw color with a 3-finger frothy, foamy, white head. Decent retention

S – Earthy, grainy, cereal malt and wheat, sour lemon juice, and a salty aroma similar to chicken broth. Seems on point with the style so far; let’s see how this one tastes.

T – My first thought: wow this tastes like lemonade! It starts off with grainy wheat malt and sour lemon juice and progresses to a slightly spicy, earthy coriander and salty finish. Toward the finish, as the tartness fades, the grainy wheat reappears, too.

F – Light-bodied with good carbonation, a tart and mouth-coating feel, and a tart, salty, and wet finish. Tart lemon juice and earthy coriander flavors linger for a bit.

O – This is a very interesting and extremely refreshing beer. As others have said, this may be the perfect lawnmower beer. At only 4% ABV, it is extremely drinkable, and you can have a good amount before you start to feel it. I’m going to be looking out for more beers from this style for sure. Another hit from Westbrook!

4.18/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Tasted On: 07-23-2014
Freshness: Canned on 04-24-2014
Packaging: 12 oz. can
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Purchased: 6-pack from Liquor Express, Huntsville AL

A: Honey-colored, semi-clear beer. The white head starts tall, but fades quickly leaving no lacing in the glass.

A: Smells have both salty and sour notes, with fruity citrus from lemon peel.

T: Taste is first up very mouth-puckering, like a good lemonade. The salt adds an interesting and complimentary effect.

M: Light in body with a high amount of carbonation. The finish has sour flavors but also a little sweetness.

O: This style always throws me for a curve with its sour and salt aspects, but proves itself to be an excellent summer thirst quencher.
