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.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a foggy gold-tinted yellow color with a quickly fading head. Tart, wheaty aroma...sourdough, lemon/lime, and just a whiff of coriander. Intensely sour from the start, acidic and crisp. Lemon and lime juices and salt brings to mind refreshing pool-side beverages. Fairly light and puckering, leaving the gums dry. Not sure I've ever had a Gose quite this sour. Refreshing!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a murky yellow with minimal head, no light passage. Nose comprises of bready wheat and lemon zest with hints of tangy lactobacillus. The taste is where this beer shines. Starts with tangy tartness followed by huge notes of candied lemon and lemon zest. This is quickly followed by a dash of sea salt and a grainy wheat to finish. The finish is clean and balanced. A ton of flavor is jam packed into this 4% brew and this shows me how incredibly tasty a gose can be. I can see why people scoop up cases at a time of this, hopefully this somehow finds it's way into Chicago's distribution.

4.04/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz can, undated, poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

The beer pours a super hazy and cloudy apricot color, hues of orange and copper with a thick, fizzy finger of white head, that vanishes immediately and leaves no film nor lace, a vigorous swirl of the glass yields nothing. The aroma is citrusy and sour, light vinegar, a bit of wildflower with a nice sea salt finish. The flavors match well, big lemon zest sourness, light grapefruit tartness behind it, mild vinegar, wildflower, pale grain with a crisp and assertive salty bite that linger really well. The mouthfeel is nice, plenty of liveliness, lighter body, coats the mouth well, finishes easily with a nice puckery sensation.

Verdict: A delicious Gose from Westbrook, one of the most sour examples of the style and perhaps less salty, but delicious nonetheless. One of the more refreshing beers I've tried this summer, I could easily run through a case of this with ease, definitely a great warm weather beer.
