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 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.

Pours a cloudy straw with a quickly fading, fizzy head. One word best describes the aroma - sour! Smells like no other beer I've ever had! Bitter and sour strike the palate front and center followed by spice and salt notes. Finishes sour. Very light bodied with effervescent carbonation make this an extremely drinkable. Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by ths beer, it was perfect with sushi on a very warm, late summer evening. Great job Westbrook!

The beer is light orange and hazy with a half inch of white head that quickly fizzes away to nil. The aroma brings sourness, citrus, funk, earth, salt. Puckering from the onset with salt character immediately following. Light acidity with spritzy carbonation tickling the palate. Sweet tropical fruit, particularly pineapple. Well done.

6-pack - 12 ounce cans - $11.98 at Sherlock's in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Heavily hazed, dirtied yellow body with a medium-high, airy head that steadily retreats. Nominal lacing.

Smell: Sourish, briny nose with a touch of sourdough, wheat, and spoiled lemons.

Taste: Slight, muddled graininess, damp straw, and the sourdough with a vein of cream of wheat underneath the staunch, salty, lactic flavors. Jarring jolt of lemon juice bursts onto the scene soon. The coriander remains rather subtle beneath the peppier elements. Still rather salty. Remains sour on the salty, minerally finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Medium-plus.

Overall: Skanky, but deliciously, even refreshingly so. Can you imagine? Can y-- Well, you can probably imagine, but yeah. Skanky!
