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.

Poured into a tulip glass

A: Pale yellow, opaque, with a half finger head that dissipates quickly. Thick lacing.

S: Wheat, salt, coriander.

T: Tart and salty. Not as sour as I expected. Coriander, lemon and wheat pop in to give it a summer appeal. But the salt overwhelms, pushing everything else to the back seat.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: Too salty for my taste. This beer is more of a novelty that should be shared at tastings just to finish off the can.

I really shouldn't rate a beer in a category I probably don't like. This was my first Gose beer and I don't care for sour/wild ales either. I went easy on it (could've rated it a 1.00 to my tastes).

The sour and saltiness dominates big time. So if this is something your tastes buds crave, then this one is for you.

Can from Adam. Thanks man! Pours a cloudy light yellow color with a one finger white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is heavy sour and salt as the can says, lemon peel, interesting. Flavor is like a tart lemonade with some salt added. A bit of wheat and dirty finish lingering. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation. Crisp finish. I like that Westbrook decided to make something different. Not bad, and definitely a change up from the norm. Tangy for sure.

Can: Poured a light yellowish color Gose with a nice pure white foamy head. Aroma of tart notes with light salty notes also discernable. Taste is a mxi between some tart and sour notes with a salty finish and limited coriander notes. Body is light with good carbonation. I had really high expectation considering all the noise this one is making but I thought it was an OK version of the style at the end of the day.
