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.

4.2/5  rDev +0.5%

Poured into a La Cumbre Weizen glass:

A- Cloudy, golden blonde. 1/2 inch to an inch of head.

S- Enticing. Tart, citrusy notes and a strong presence of salt.

T- A lot going on here. Tartness, salt, wheatiness, citrus, and a nutty back end.

M- Highly carbonated, but smooth on the palate, easy-drinking. Could easily be a summer pounder for the frat boy set.

O- A unique approach to the style with the tartness and citrus, but this brings out a strong character and makes the beer unmistakeable. It's both a complex beer to sip slowly and analyze and smooth sipper for summer afternoons. Just outstanding like most Westbrook goods.

Light, crisp, at 4% ABV I can pretty much drink a six pack in one sitting of a Netflix movie

Poured from can into small tasting glass. Date of review is 7/05/14, GO AMERICA!

Appearance- Thin dark white head that disappears immediately. Murky pale orange color with high carbonation. I do not know what the style is supposed to look like, but this is pleasant.

Smell- Salty and lemony are the two major scents. I get orange peel as well. This may be a bit weird, but it smells fruity, almost like a fruit roll-up or gushers.

Taste- So much happening in this 4% ABV beer! Just like in the nose I get lemon and salt right away. There is a bready earthiness to this beer as well. Fruitiness is also present with a lingering ocean taste.

Mouthfeel- Sweet, sour, bitter and salty all at once. This is like a Picasso painting in a glass. I have no idea how this is done, but I am very happy that someone knows.

Overall- Just fantastic in every way. This is easily the best tasting low alcohol beer I have ever tried. I could drink about 24 of these in a day and be a happy man.
