Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose has been canned once again

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose can

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose has been canned once again this week, shipping soon from the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina brewery.

Regular Westbrook Gose (simply called Gose) debuted in 2012 and is still fairly hard for stores to keep in stock years later. Key Lime Pie Gose is no different. You say the word pie and people come running.

The slightly sour beer is brewed with coriander and sea salt, plus a touch of key lime juice.

Fans of the the brewery’s original gose will definitely find the resemblance in Key Lime. When cold (like, refrigerator cold), the beer has a strong lime tartness. Key lime juice is the boss. As the beer warms up a bit, there is some hints of graham cracker. Or… we could be completely making that part up. We can’t stop thinking about pie. It does become more pie-like as it gets warmer. Or we maybe we just want pie.

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose will be available again in 12 ounce cans, and draft, as a limited seasonal.

Style: Gose (w/ Key Lime, Sea Salt, Coriander.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal release.
Latest Return: April, 2017

4.5% ABV

    was this a brewery only release?

    • Limited distribution where Westbrook is sold. (Gone in under an hour at the stores that have already received it this week.)

    Did they actually use key lime juice? Kudos, if they did. Key limes have a stronger, more complex, and more long-lasting flavor. They’re in short supply, though, because of Hurricane Andrew’s destruction of the Florida orchards, & now disease issues in Mexico. That picture above shows “normal” Persian limes, which is why I ask.

    • The brewery used real key lime juice in the beer. Those are indeed key limes in our photo as well. They probably look bigger than they are next to the pie slices.

        Great!
        Now if I could just get hold of the beer. 😉
        Last year, as I was sampling a (fully ripe!) Key Lime off the tree at work (in a pot), I said “Somebody should make a gose with this.” 🙂

          Bottle shop down the road from work got some yesterday. Called as soon as I could, & already gone, despite a 3 can limit. :(,,,,,,,

          • We’re seeing a second round hitting shops from distribution…. perhaps you might get lucky yet?
