Collaboration with Westbrook Brewing Co.

It's no secret that we like to party, and sometimes it gets wild. So we took the Westbrook's refreshing Gose and cranked up the volume a bit, adding a massive dose of citra & amarillo hops, then fermented it with various strains of brettanomyces... Go Westbrook, it's your birthday, get funky!!

Drinking straight from the can. I was a bit worried because the initial aroma came off as refermentation. One sip and my concerns were assuaged. The off notes were certainly just from the Brett, and the taste was actually very pleasant and even unlike a brew that typically has the addition of funky brett notes. The hops were mellowed out significantly especially for something double dry hopped. This makes it a very smooth beer to drink though I would not have minded the pilsner like hop spice bite typical of dry hopping.
It's slightly tart but not even very sour, with just a hint of lactic flavor on the initial sip, with an almost lemongrass characteristic given the tart and brett notes intermixed with the herbal quality of the hops. It's a very nice beer between the mellow lactic, funky herbal hay aroma, and well rounded refreshing smoothness.

22 oz bomber into a pilsner glass

So, I've had this brew in my mini-fridge for years now. Like, years. I'd sampled it before I bought it and had asked my bottle-shop friend if he had any more; he didn't, so I kinda horded it away. Anyway, I figured it was now or never, a brew with this low a gravity just can't age forever, no matter how cold its maintained. And generally speaking, that's truth, but in this case I seemed to have happened upon an anomaly - I'm drinking this beer as I type this, and it's as delicious as i remember it.

Golden straw-yellow in appearance, a sudsy head forms on an easy pour. Tart, crisp, grassy bouquet with subtle suggestions of unripe berries. More sour on the palate than in the nose, lemony nuances compliment the brew's oaky dryness, with bittering hops ushering in one of cleanest, shortest finishes you'll experience in a brew. Eminently refreshing. Now I might be regretting not leaving this thing in the fridge for another few years or so. Oh well.

This is a fun and interesting beer. It has a lot of similarities to other Stillwater sours like moneytree and hopvine bling. The shell is very fruity with berries, melon, lemon, and also some hay. The taste is tart and refreshing. I thought the Brett would add more funk but it comes through with more fruity flavors. There is a subtle hint of rustic barnyard in the background but you have to look for it. Overall very rewarding and delicious. yb

I got a late start on this past Sunday's NBS (Week 774) & I did not finish up my DelMarVa (+ DC) adventure as planned. 8=( Further, I have promised that next week's NBS (Week 775) will be dedicated to the wonderful beers sent to me by @jkblr who seems to have a real handle on my drinking habits. CANsparency is key in these things! As a result, I am going to CANcentrate over the next few days on eradicating everything that would have CANbined to form the finale of the DelMarVa (+ DC) adventure. Sit down, strap in & hang on. It's gonna be a wild ride!

Speaking of Wild, thanks to staying with BAL & MD, I now have a Leipzig Gose as my next beer! If this keeps up, I'm going to get my status as a hophead in good standing revoked! 8=(

From the CAN: "Dry-Hopped Sour Wheat Ale fermented with Brettanomyces".

I did some light in-CANgitation before Crack!ing open the vent on this one. I wanted to ensure that any flocculation that may have taken place in the interim was now back in suspension. Following the Crack!, I went with a hard, aggro Glug into the awaiting glass. This led to the formation of just over a finger of fizzy, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with low retention, quickly falling to wisps. Color was an oh-so-faintly-hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). They must have gone light on the Brett since although I could smell it, I also got a really pleasant whiff of salt! Mmm. I love the smell of salt! Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not far removed, either. The taste had the funkified taste of Brett, but not in an over-the-top way. Instead, it was lightly tart, not at all sour, with a lemony saltiness that I really dug! Dang, this was a recent purchase (yesterday) simply because I am immersed in Stillwater Artisanal beers at the moment & I am really digging it! What a find. Finish was dry, of course, but not puckering or unpleasant as some have been. Yum! YMMV.

1 PT 6 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a sour glass

This beer pours a brilliant pale yellow. The head is fleeting and leaves no trace of its existence.

The smell is tart citrus with some dank basement funk aroma.

The taste follows the smell. It starts with tart citrus. Funk is in the finish and aftertaste along with a citrus tang.

It is nice to have a nice, clean, traditional version of this style instead of the trendy imperial, fruit slushy versions. This is very well crafted and quite refreshing.
