    12oz can pours with a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a white head. The aroma offers up wheat notes, some salt, earthy apricot and peach fuzz, cool. The taste has apple and peach fruitiness to go along with salt and some pleasing funky notes. Dang this is nice with wild modest sour notes mixed with light skin fruity esters and a salty touch. I just had the Bayerischer Bahnhof Gose while I was in Germany and this one just seems to do it all and in a nuanced and easy going way. Wow. To me this is now the defining Gose and I love that it’s in a can too. Well done!

    Extremely murky bright yellow with a white head. Aroma contains citrus and clove. Very sour and salty with some lemons and coriander. The finish is also sour. This is like licking salt and sucking a lemon. Overall very interesting and good.

    Picked this up tonight at a local bottle shop. Poured from a can, hazy yellow with a thin head that didn't last very long. Sour, leathery, salty, yeasty. Tart and sour with a lemony finish. A pretty good beer. I'll probably try another from Westbrook Brewing.

    12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big fizzy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is tart lemon, salt and wheat malts.

    The flavor is tart and sweet lemon with some salt in the background. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a solid gose with lots of tart sour lemon and some salt.

    Malty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone and a fruity hint. Pours a hazy yellow with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled eggshell head. Flavor is fruity and lemony sour, though not so your face will do a workout. Hints of coriander and sweetish wheat peek through. Texture is firm and very lively, leaving a persistent tingle and a sour citrus finish.
