Unlabeled 22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale body. No real head. Lifeless.

Smell - Citrus fruit. Kinda funky and grainy.

Taste - Fruity. Citrus. Faint salt. Some funkiness too. Deep flavor, which is odd.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium body, moderate sourness.

Overall - Somehow Westbrook ruined their Gose. It's not terrible, but I had high expectations.

Pour is golden yellow with lots of tight white head. Nose has a fairly bright citrus, light salt, faint wheat, white pepper. Flavor has a lot of juice and citrus to it, gets a little oily from the juice, moderate acidity, lighter body, assertive carb.

Had this on-tap at The Griffon in Charleston, SC. This beer is Westbrook's Gose with Yuzu fruit added to it.

A: It poured a hazy golden, orangey-yellow and a white airy two-finger head.

S: The smell of this beer is not my favorite. It's a very citrusy smell, but a sour citrus as opposed to a sweet citrus. The fruity, citrusy Yuzu aroma is extremely prominent (even though I've never smelled a real Yuzu). There was also a malty aroma underneath the sweet fruit and sour Gose.

T: The sourness of the Gose is very prominent right up front. You also quickly get a good taste of the citrusy Yuzu up front. The Yuzu adds a sweetness to the Gose and also another level of sourness other than what the Gose alone offers. I think the fruitiness and sweetness of the Yuzu balances the intense salty sourness of the regular Gose and that's why I like this Gozu a little better than the Gose.

O: This is a very interesting beer. The fruit isn't overpowering and I think it works well with salt and sourness of the Gose. This would be a great summer beer for enjoying by the water.
