OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 1, 2013
22oz bottle served in a SN IPA glass Bottled on 12/19/12 A - Extremely pale golden color, slightly hazed with 1.5 fingers white dish soap head. S - Nice delicate smoke, wheat malt, lemon/lime citrus, some sun block aroma. T - Wheat husks, lightly smokey, fresh oak wood, white pepper, salty lemon/lime, slight vitamin mineral note towards the finish. Finishes very clean and refreshing. M - Light clean body, effervescence carbonation, clean and refreshing finish. It was hard to drink this slow. I honestly could have chugged it without blinking an eye. Lots of flavor packed into such a low ABV with effortless balance. Refreshing just keeps coming to my mind. This is my first beer from Westbrook and I donít want it to be the last! Thanks to Hopswagger for the bottle. Serving type: bottle 04-09-2013

Bottle thanks to Brad. Pours a cloudy yellow with frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is pepper, smoke, salt, lemon zest. Medium mouth with strong smoke, light pepper, citrus and wheat. Good.

Bottle. Pours clear to hazy butterscotch, large puffy white head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is smoky, grassy, touch of lemon, a bit of mushroom like damp basement. Flavor is very light sweet, light plus smoke, some damp basement funk and a bit of citric tartness. Light body, too carbonated - let it rest a bit. Pretty enjoyable.

Pours a light hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat and smoke. Taste is bitter hops, wheat, smoke . Light on the components but thatís a good thing. Nice beer.

Grower from The Charleston Beer Exchange. Hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Smoke, hay, ripe fruit, wheat, light yeast. Smooth and slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Great.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Had this while family camping. I am not a huge smoke beet fan, but this was subdues enough to make it quite enjoyable. Big frothy white head is all I got on appearance as it was drank out of a Solo cup. Yeasty, easters, light hoppy, some smoke. Very light on the palate with nice carbonation.

A: Smoky... big smokey note. Like a bonfire. And oaky. Very oaky. Sour lemon in there as well. Looks strange. Lemonaid like. Hazy light. Explosive head. Taste is like eating a bonfire: oaky, smoky. Not balanced at all. Maybe itís not supposed to be? Ok.... I researeched and I found a brewers association definition and some guys rant about the brewers association definition: neither one containing citations. Fuck that! Is this rate 100% my opinion? I feel like it has to be. I guess this barclay perkins guy is a beer historian? But the citation for that is his blog? Could I write a blog and say that beer is like is brewed by God himself and it be true? (for some belief systems I suppose that would be true... but I donít roll that way (itís cool if you do though: just donít get up in my biz about it)) Anyway: this fucking gratzer. Itís not bad: really exactly what I was looking for. Looking at a fridge where the next lowest ABV beer is 8.6% this is what I was looking for. Not as multidimensional as their Gose, but this beer is chill. Not hoppy though... not hopy at all. I get a little sourness on the tongue but the taste is all smoke and oak. Maybe this gets back to the taste debate.... yeah I taste sour but the flavors are smoke and oak. Like BBQ which I wish I was eating right now.... instead Iím on a freaking diet. I need to get back on the bike................. why do all cyclists love craft beer? Seriously.... thatís like a psychology study waiting to happen. Palate is sour, smokey, oaky. Not roasty though.... so the balance is strange to me. Very light and watery. Overall this beer is chill and I can dig that. Itís like drinking a liquid bonfire though... which is intense. And the sad part is I donít know if itís true to style because I have no good citations. Maybe Iíll email Westbrook.... Iím drunk enough to do that. A fine beer.

Draft at brewery. Pour is very hazy. Large white head. Nose us slightly smokey with a touch of sour. Taste is primarily smoke with just a hint of the sourness. Overall just kinda ok but probably just too much going on at once here. For me anyway.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle shared at the Aloft post-Grand Tasting fart/bottle tasting/share. Wowe, another Westbrook gose. Dominating those this weekend. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Some smokiness in this one, smoked wheat, with straw, grass, earth, lemon-lime, and a dash of salt. Light-bodied, with a dry, smoky, mineral mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good, but not at the level of their other goses.

[ Bottle ][ RBWG Afterparty3 ][ 22oz ][ Globe ][ Free ][ 2/8/14 ]
>> Thanks ygtbsm94 I think for the share. Pours a low haze straw, weaker foam. Nose is phenolic style smoke, fresh lemonade. Taste is very light bodied, almost a pure lemon ice water in taste, low to no smoke. Not much to it, refreshing at least and no brewing flaws. Just not assertive.
