Refreshing!!! If you’re a Sour brew fan this one is a winner! The strawberry notes in a sour body beer are the equivalent of peanut butter and chocolate! Love love love this brew. Can drink year round.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Date: 09/24/2021
I just tried the last Gose from Westbrook, and I enjoyed it; I am hoping the same. Growing up, we ate strawberry rhubarb pie; it was the highlight of a long work week. I used another footed pils glass and served it around 36 degrees. I anticipated a pinkish color when I poured the beer, but I did not. A frothy and creamy one-fingered head was created. The slow dissipation did leave bits of lacing on the glass. A golden yellow with amber hues charts the beer around SRM 7. The clarity is almost clear with bits of yeasty floaties.
The aromas are dominated by Rhubarb. Notes of berries come through but faintly. Lemon, salt, and crackers Nare what I smell next. Nosing the glass several more times, I detect a faint bread note.
The flavors are rhubarb and a touch of strawberries. This beer is more like a Gose than the last beer. It has a pungent lemon and salt with some cinnamon and vanilla that linger on the back of the palate.
The mouthfeel is bright and crisp. The body of the beer is light and has high carbonation. The finish is tart and sweet.
I do not think this is better than the Apple Pie Gose, but this beer is tart and crisper. The other beer was sweeter. I enjoy the other Gose better. I wanted the strawberry flavor to have more presents along with the spices. The rhubarb was overpowering and made it difficult to enjoy.

Dark reddish pink body. Strawberries for days, nice rhubarb tartness to balance it out a bit. Lots of strawberry fruit along the finish. Medium lighter bodied, good carbonation, lighter medium lemon acetic acidity. Smell's good, almost a funky strawberry lemonade.

Cloudy golden body with a white cap. Smell is really impressive: strawberry coulis with vanilla, yeast, wheat, light baking spices, and a hint of lacto laced rhubarb. Taste has large wheat to remind you this is a beer you are drinking: rhubarb is still on the backend but stronger, strawberry, yeast, vanilla star. Does starts to separate a little as it warms. Feel is classic westbrook with the gose wheat and yeast with a light fun tartness, crisp for style, smooth and has some residual sweetness on the tongue. As a lover of strawberry rhubarb pie, this beer is a welcomed dessert in the summer

Pours a murky dark orangey pink, initial 2" off white head that settles out slowly, little lacing. Nose off the bat has grassy, fruity notes most reminiscent of parmigiano reggiano, which in this context isn't too pleasant. As it warms, strawberry notes become more prominent, though closer to strawberry candy than any actual strawberry. A bit of musky saltiness as well that fits with the base. Taste is oddly dull - there's some mild tartness up front and some strawberry (even strawberry-banana) candy, but little that lingers on the palate. The flavor hint is more like a zero cal seltzer than anything else - it really doesn't stick around and is more of a suggestion of flavor than anything else. Mouthfeel is solid - a little on the heavy side but with good carbonation. Overall, this doesn't work for me.

A: Pours a murky medium pinkish golden honey in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate pale orange + pale ruby red + dark golden yellow + amber + apricot colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy fizzy foamy pale beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering 95% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy sweet + tart strawberries and light to moderate aromas of rhubarb over the top of moderate aromas of wheat + graham cracker malts with a light to moderate amount of lactose sweetness and a light to moderate amount of citrus lemon lacto tartness. Light aromas of vanilla and a hint of brininess. Hints of spices.

T: Upfront there is a just shy of moderate flavor of wheat + graham cracker malts with a light to moderate amount of lactose sweetness and a light to moderate amount of citrus lemon lacto tartness. That is followed by light flavors of vanilla and a hint of brininess. Finally there are moderate to strong flavors of juicy sweet + tart strawberries and light to moderate aromas of rhubarb along with some hint of spices. Light to moderate amounts of lingering tartness.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with a slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth in the mid-body with a moderate amount of acidic prickliness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a very pleasantly soft/creamy + acidic mouthfeel. Very enjoyable and really reminds me of the pie (which I made for the first time this past summer). Refreshing.

Got as a gift from dbrauneis last time we hung out. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/24/21. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden orange, light pink color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing on the glass, moderate streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas and flavors of big juicy strawberries, lemon, lime, orange, green apple, melon, rhubarb, wheat, hay, straw, grass; background notes of fruit skin/seeds, vanilla, cream, cinnamon, lacto funk, salt, pepper. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness and fruit tang on the finish; light spice and herbal bitterness. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; nice crisp acidic finish with some wheat creaminess. Light salinity. No astringent or puckering flavors, make this super drinkable and refreshing. Not really huge on cinnamon or vanilla, but this is right on the verge of jammy levels of fruit flavors; and they didn't overdo the rhubarb character. Top tier milkshake sour or whatever you want to call it.

Poured from 16oz can into a dimpled mug. Canned 9/24/21.

Appearance: murky medium-dark orange with a thin layer of fizzy foam atop.

Smell: that's a strawberry gose all right! Wheaty, a bit tart, and quite a bit of strawberry. Vanilla isn't jumping out at me explicitly; perhaps it's adding to a sense of sweetness. Not bad, but I really don't think the strawberry is adding a lot.

Taste: wheaty and slightly tart with a good dose of fresh, delicious strawberries. The fruit is substantially more successful in the flavor than in the aroma. There's enough sweetness to really make this beer pop; it's one of the most successful applications of strawberry I've experienced in a beer. Definitely executed on the plan!

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a moderate carbonation and perfectly decent creaminess.

Overall: I like this beer; it's very strange. I probably wouldn't want to drink a bunch of them, but it's definitely an interesting treat.
