My first gose...

Poured into stange; cloudy to the point of opacity, like unfiltered grapefruit juice.
Smells like a sour; tart citrus, dry.
Tastes very tart and refreshing, very sour.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp.
Overall, I love this beer style. Sour, dry, crisp and refreshing, I could drink these all night. I don't know enough about the style to tell whether this particular one is good or bad, but all I know is overall they're delicious.

Formed a huge fluffy white head that broke apart quickly never to be seen again.
Dark golden almost apple juice looking body. Kind of looks like golden ocean water when held up to the sunlight, like when the waves ebb and swirl the sand.
Smells sour and the coriander comes out prominently as well.
You really get that sour tartness right away! It's almost like sour pear juice, that sounds bad, but it isn't! I can't necessarily pick out the addition of salt, other than the dryness it imparts. Reminds me a little bit of Bell's Oarsman.
Really refreshing on a hot day, the dryness on the end really makes you want to go back for more.
Overall a decent brew that drinks so easy it should be illegal! Can certainly see buying a ton of this! If I had a 6 pack of this it wouldn't last too long.

Poured can dated 7/10/14 into New Belgium glass

A-Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head that quickly dissipates.

S-The aroma is very wheaty with hints of coriander and lemon.

T-The taste is a wonderful balance of sourness and wheat with the perfect amount of saltiness to accompany this refreshing brew.

M-Mouthfeel has well balanced and medium carbonation. Nice sour finish.

O-My first Westbrook ale and most definitely not my last.
