12oz. can into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is lemon zest and Warhead tartness mixed with a subtle hint of cucumber in the back. Admittedly, if I wasn't looking for it, I wouldn't have noticed it. But its definitely there. Beer opens lemon heads. A nice balance of zingy tartness and mellow sweetness. The cucumber is much more prominent on the palate than on the nose. I don't know if I like it. More puckering towards the middle with a slight rind bitterness. From the cucumber? Finishes soft with barely a finish. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and foamy on the palate and goes down aggressive. Clean finish with near no aftertaste. Really drinkable and refreshing.

I'm not sure if I like this more than the regular gose as the cucumber presence takes a little getting used to. Still, it's interesting and worth a try.

Picked a four pack of this up in a trade. FedEx kept losing the package unfortunately. Canned 8/13/18

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice clear darker gold with a one finger white head that fades slowly to leave thin wisps and a light halo.

S - Aromas of super bright lemons, sharp and zesty, followed by..well...cucumbers! Just really prominent fresh cucumber aroma. Paired with the lemon and coriander and light salt from the base almost gives it a 'quick pickle' like aroma. Swirls really bring out even more cucumber aroma. Super neat.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Really nice lemon flavour followed by just really pleasant fresh cucumber flavour. Crisp, clean, almost pickle like. Nice light salt, good coriander, really nice creamy wheat. Absolutely delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, however, the lingering finish is on the flemmy side.

O - Overall this was a very, very enjoyable gose. The lemon and cucumber pops just wonderfully. The cucumber is quite impressive. Definitely a lovely summer time beer, however, I think I like the Key Lime Pie one a little bit more.

Canned on 6/18/18

Pours a pretty hazy golden straw with a good finger of uniform white foam; decent retention and traces of spotty lacing left behind.

Aroma is bright but nicely restrained with a mild tartness mingling excellently balanced lemon acidity and vegetal cucumber; furthermore, I’m getting plenty of grass, rose petals, and various wild herbs from the vegetal aspect, with a slight backbone of hay as well; very well-formed and detailed bouquet.

Taste brings plenty of tart, juicy lemon with the cucumber, slight salt, and plenty of herbal essence following closely; some earthy straw presence adds another element to a rounded profile.

Mouthfeel is clean, tart, zesty, and smoothly crisp all at once, and packed atop a lighter body with medium carbonation; fades on the palate with relative ease while acknowledging all flavors.

Bright lemon and a unique herbaceousness really are the highlights here; a good heft to the body adds a fuller element to the body while holding nicely to the style’s ultimately refreshing quality; good flavor profile and overall just a really well-made gose.

L: Hazy transparent straw-yellow with a small creamy white head. Medium retention. A thin film remains. Good retention for the style. A bit of spotty lacing is left.

S: Cool and zippy cucumber flesh accentuated by tart acidity and sugary lemonade/candied lemon sweetness. A perfect mix of lemonade, lemon candy, and cucumber.

T: A big smack of sourness upfront. Lemon zest, lime, a hint of pineapple and a ton of cucumber. Tart and moderately acidic throughout. A nice white bread wheat backbone. Mild to moderate salt in the background wets the palate. Finishes crisp and clean with a lingering puckering sourness.

F: Light, but highly carbonated and zippy. Incredibly thirst-quenching.

O: An incredibly refreshing, delicious, and flavorful Gose. Amazing!

Can stamped 07/17/18

Hazy gold with a short white head that quickly disappears for the most part. Fragrant cucumber, salad greens, minerals, and mellow lemon. Bright lemon acidity, cucumber water, brine, and a bit of wheat right at the end. Light bodied and crisp. Super refreshing.

Light refreshing gose! The name matches the smell and tast, also with the Westbrook name it’s on point for these hot summer months. I got some spices on the nose and some mint on the taste, but the cucumber and loads of tart lemons are the main players.
