COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"It’s no secret that we like to party, and sometimes it gets wild. So we took Westbrook’s refreshing Gose and cranked up the volume a bit, adding a massive dose of Citra & Amarillo hops, then fermented it various strains of Brettanomyces...Go Westbrook, it’s your birthday, get funky!!" -Brian (Stillwater Artisanal)

Candy sweet, tart and sour. Lots of carbonation. Touch of salt. Compared to the original, a lot more tartness and a thinker body but less salt. A lot of flavor coming from just 4%. I’d say this is a full on wild ale, not just a gose anymore.

Served in a Teku from bomber. Served 6mo old. Oddly, prefer this 6mo old than fresh. Aroma – compelling scents of sea salt and acidity emanate from the surface of this brew. I have not encountered a Gose with aromatic qualities of this nature. Appearance – opaque golden hue glistens and gleams. Moderate frothy, white head-retention dissipates over time, but remains for minutes after pouring into Teku. Sediment congregates at bottom of glass and appears goopy white from outside of glass, but is truly a brownish-white goop when peering in from above glass. As you pour the remaining bottle into the glass, the beer is murky, pastel-like yellowish-white. Taste – fascinating, marvelous concoction of sour, funky, salty sensations. Subtle vestiges of Westbrook’s Gose coalesce brilliantly with Stillwater’s ingenuity. Skeptical one could notice the alcohol in this brew prior to reading the label. Palate – For style, there is nothing this Gose does not accomplish. Goes Gone Wild delicately explores each and every avenue of the palate and exhibits its magnificence throughout each and every sip. Overall – This beer is in a class of its own; a truly transfixing showstopper of a Gose. Typically, I do not compare styles... Sorry, but this is one of my favorite beers of all time. Drinkability wise and quality wise, I cannot put many brews of any style past this one. Take the time to smell the roses.

Pouring at BCTC 2014. Pours a faintly hazed gold with a large white head. Musk, funk and wheat on the nose. Salty and tart, lemon and floral, tangy and beautiful. Long tart and salty finish. I blame this beer for reducing the number of beers I tried during the festival proper, as I kept coming back and drinking this over just about everything else. So damned good.

22 oz bottle shared by devman171 at the Annapolis tasting, thanks Devin! Never seen this in shops or on draft so I was happy to finally get to try this. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of floral notes, tropical fruit, light salt, tart fruit. Tastes of tropical fruit, salt, tart lemons. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Fantastic and lives up to the hype, nice tart and salty gose with a tropical fruit twist.

jbruner (2809) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy yellow from the bomber with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is nice funky citrus from both the hops and the base beer, hint of earth and lactic sour. Taste is amazing balance of sour and funk, citrus is huge, light and effervescent. Wow, a real treat and glad to have tried it.

JStax (3417) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has funky wheat notes with a bit of a tropical fruit hop profile. The taste is all sour, which is delicious, but it’s missing the salt of the standard Westbrook Gose. Lighter body and medium to high carbonation.

Grabbed the last bottle out of the fridge at Julios a few months ago. Time to share. Pours straw with a white head. Aroma is lychee, lemon. Flavor follows, with some salt. Really nice.
