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.

The elusive Westbrook Gose has finally found its way into my glass. Found it at Market Commons Piggly Wiggly in Myrtle Beach.

My expecpectations were somewhat reserved since I figured people in SC and GA that are rating Westbrook so well haven't been had much exposure to many other Goses out there. I'm wrong. This is the best Gose I've ever had. It's amazing. Perfectly sour/salty and even smells good (every other Gose has smelled bad but I've overlooked that. If you like the Gose style you must try this one.

Thanks Steve!

Poured a golden, straw, murky color with two fingers of white, rocky head. Minimal foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention, although I assume that would be the same with all the Gose’s. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled coriander, lemon, orange zest, 7-Up soda, lime, green apple, green grape and faint milk. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted sour citrusy fruit in green grape, kiwi and green apple. Also coriander, orange, cantaloupe, tropical notes faint sour milk and citrusy soda. Unknown spiciness as well. (Taste - 4.25)

Light body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, sour finish. (Feel - 4.13)

This was my first Gose, but it was a damn good one. Really liked it. (Overall - 4.13)

By third sip it tastes like pure sea salt. Lost coriander flavor

Very small head, fizzy, quickly fading. No lacing. Brew is a murky orange/yellow.

Tangy and sour aroma; citrus meets sour milk meets hay. If that sounds unpleasant, it's misleading; it's a very inviting aroma.

Flavor is an excellent match of wheat and hay, lemons and oranges, coriander and grass, and a slightly funky, slightly sour, very tart edge. Slightly milky. The salt doesn't stand out as overpowering, but it's certainly very salty for a beer.

Light and crisp feel, very active, slight sting. Very drinkable. Oily retention balanced against a slight pucker on the aftertaste. Refreshing.

The can doesn't lie; this is a delicious, light, refreshing beer. Definitely would make a fantastic summer quencher.
