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.

I don't like to gush about beers. But Westbrook is a brewery, that in my mind, has proven their commitment to producing beers of exceptional quality. And while I have partaken of several of their offerings (and thoroughly enjoyed them) the Gose stands out as a truly world-class beverage. Light, crisp, citrusy, sour, salty, and delicious; this beer was crafted for kids who loved sour candies and then grew up. It is bright and refreshing without completely overpowering the palate, despite the intense flavor. It has a very light mouthfeel, much like a skim or 1% milk, but the flavor asserts itself onto your tastebuds and then vanishes leaving a memory of tart salty goodness that lingers for a moment and then is gone. Drink it and prepare to be amazed.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter. Purchased in Myrtle Beach this past weekend, canned 3 weeks ago on 6/16/14.

A - Pours a dull, hazy yellow-orange body with a 2 finger white head that reduces to a layer of foam to leave spotty lacing.

S - Hard to explain.. I've drank multiple cases of this beer and I still can't exactly put my finger on the specific aromas/tastes, you just have to try it! I definitely get lemon juice, citrus rind, some spices, light malt, bready.

T - Perfectly tart, borderline sour, definitely salty upfront.. like yellow gatorade. The follow through has subtle pale malt notes, coriander and clove, and a subtle fruitiness.

M - Crisp, refreshing, light, and easy to drink. The shining point of this beer.

I call this the perfect session beer. If you're into sours, you'll like this as a drinkable brew that you can drink a lot of to get your sour fix, as opposed to having to crack open expensive bombers. Not traditionally funky-sour, but definitely different and definitely good.
