Westbrook Gose

Brewery: Westbrook Brewing Co.
Country: USA
ABV: 4%
Style: German Gose
Other Notes: 5 IBUs

Brewer Description: (from website) This is our interpretation of Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), a traditional German-style sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback.

My rating: 4
My rating: 4.04
My rating: 3.9

Intro: On tap at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, into a Fermentoren wine glass.
Appearance: It was a clear golden colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving only sparse light lacing.
Aroma: Sour, tart, grape and white wine.
Taste: What you smell is what you taste. Salty, sour, tart, grape and white wine.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It was very refreshing and great to drink outdoors on a hot summer day.

(picture below) Westbrook Gose is obviously the glass on the left. On the right is the Verzet Oud Bruin.

ABV: 4.2%
Style: German Gose
Other Notes: Malt – Pale Two-Row, Malted White Wheat. Hops – Bravo.

Intro: A 12 fl oz can poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a clear golden straw colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly.
Aroma: Aromas are mainly bready, tart, sour, lemon. There is also a slight dank finish.
Taste: First a doughy malt flavour, followed by tart, lemon, sour and salt.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.
Overall: This was not bad as the tartness is refreshing. It’s also easy to drink. However I tried the blood orange version first and easily prefer that over this one.
