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.

this is a weird one because it scores well objectively speaking in all the categories, like, its hard to argue that this doesnt smell and taste appetizing, but in the end, it has limited drinkability for me in a style i like to be able to pound on, and i dont think its all that good overall, not as good as some of the other iterations of this, but yet i have a hard time marking it low in any specific field here. weird. the cucumber and the lemon are both strong in the nose, while the salt and the sour are there as well, it is obviously what is says it is. the lemon and cucumber are surprisingly natural in the flavor, especially for how bold they are, usually at this intensity it has to be fake, but its not. i remember that being essentially the same thing with the lime version of this. more cucumber than lemon, like hotel lobby water, and super acidic, especially as it warms, but it has enough carbonation to stay refreshing, the added flavors distract me from what i have always admired as a very solid gose, and they add a lot, but i prefer the base beer to this one i reckon. still salty which i like, summery for sure, just maybe not my exact cup of tea. personal preference i think rather than objective criticism...

12 oz can poured into willybecher glass. Canned on 5/30.

A: murky yellow body with a tiny bubbled creamy looking white head that disappears quickly.

S: lemon then cucumber then pickle a little vinegar and some light saltiness.

T: lots of cool cucumber and earthiness from the cucumber then some lemon and a little bit of sourness not as salty as the regular then the lemon comes back with an acidic finish.

M: medium bodied decent carbonation lots of clingy after taste notes acidicity.

O: the cucumber works nicely in this making it refreshing the lemon clings too long and the aftertaste isn’t the most desirable, overall it’s just ok.

12oz can

A- pours a hazy golden-orange with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- lemon zest, cucumber, toasted wheat

T- plenty of lemon tartness up front, complimenting the classic WB gose flavors at the mid-palate. The finish is wearty with the cucumber coming out on the linger, subtle but noticeable

M- light body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp tart finish

O- a welcomed addition to the WB gose lineup. As with the others, I could easily go through a 6 pack

L: Poured from a can to a cylinder glass. Had a yellowish color and a very cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of citrus fruit, salt, cucumbers, and wheat.

T: Tasted of a little bit of sea salt (not too much), a lot of citrus (the advertised lemon), some cucumber notes, a bit of wheat (mostly in the finish), and some definite tartness. A light and refreshing flavor that's easy to like. The cucumber is more noticeable at first, but the lemon takes over after a while. Sweet and tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: This is one of those oddly enjoyable beers. Another good one for the summer months.

I really enjoyed this beer. It's perfectly balanced and goes from a lemon taste (that starts sweet and turns into a sour and tart taste) then the cucumber kicks in and the flavor totally shifts. The cucumber immediately shuts off the lemony flavor and becomes a bitter flavor that leaves you wanting more of the sweet lemon flavor that came first. This beer is very well done and the waves of flavor that make this beer enjoyable aren't common when it comes to a gose. complex and delicious.
