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.

12oz can. Not really sure what this style should look like. Rather becalmed looking compared to most other brews. Hazy yellow gold. Some white head that disappears.

Aroma, Yeasty citrus to me, some minerally saltiness. Wheaty and corn like malt.

Taste, It is quite puckering up front, straight lemon. Dry but not overyly so. Other things come out much later in the finish. Again minerally salt, and a large hay and wheat grain.

High carbonation compared to what the appearance would lead one to believe. Drinks very easy, light body, but it is VERY tart. Never had the style so I guess this is fine.
Feels "trendy" because of the sourness. Probably wouldn't bother with this style again.

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.
