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.

3.8/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Growler poured into a weizen glass. Hazy gold with a bright white head that sadly fizzes away to nothing in no time flat. Plenty of carbonation is visible bubbling up through the body, though.

Smells of salty sea air with light notes of coriander and vague sweetness. Just enough malt sweetness to keep the salty/lemon juice combo from becoming completely puckering. Crisp and clean finish with light grain and coriander flavors. Overall a very solid stab at the style. The folks at Westbrook certainly aren't shy about variety, and as with this Gose, the results are generally positive. Well done.

Serving type: growler

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.

Serving type: can
