This original Leipzig beer specialty lends us the name for our brewery. Gose is a regional beer specialty that was brought to Saxony-Anhalt in the year 1738. Originally Gose comes from Goslar, a small town in Lower Saxony, and the river “Gose” in this town. This beer specialty has a refreshing, slightly sour taste and is ideal for quenching your thirst. Gose is brewed with the additional ingredients lactic acid, cilantro, and salt. Gose is a top-fermented beer with 4,5 Vol. % alcohol and 10,8 % wort. You can enjoy it in different variations.

Pours a clear orange, with a thining head. Little in the way of salt influence in either the aroma, or flavour, tastes rather like a lager.

Tap in Leipzig - If I remember correctly, this was presented to us by the barkeeper as the "Girls-Gose". Fewer lactic and salty aromas, higher drinkability.

Wischylini (240) - Grimstad, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2015 Appearance The bottle cap claims that the beer is brewed according to the dumbest consumer law ever Reinheitsgebot; funny thing to claim for a beer brewed with wheat, spices, lactic acid and salt. The beer itself pours a hazy gold, with a miniscule white head.
Aroma Coriander and pale malts, lemon and horse blankets.
Taste Mildly sweet, no bitterness, lactic tartness
Palate Moderately thick, low carbonation
Overall A very nice and drinkable take on the gose style, but it could have taken more salt

Holmen1 (4733) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2015
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal okt-15: lett uklar gylden med kort skum. Hvete, koriander, litt salt og brett. Tynne saker i starten, men vi ristet opp bunnfallet og ble belønnet med flere forsiktige nyanser: gummisolusjon, krydder og syre. Men fortsatt litt slapp.

Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 12.10.15. Pale straw colour. Off-white head. Aroma of lemon, grass and horseblanket. Similar and sour aroma, with lime and coriander. Mouthfeel like 7-UP. Moderate bitterness. Refreshing.

Bottle from Gulating, Larvik. Pours almost clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is citric fruity with fresh limonade. Taste is refreshing, mild lemon, weak acidic and salty with a short aftertaste. Thin bodied, high carbonated. Yes, this was a nice Gose.

Leipziger Gose is an original old school, traditional gose from the land it was created. It’s not quite the same as the versions we’re used to here in the USA, though it’s not like it’s completely unfamiliar, either. This beer is a less flash and more substance, and it’s just as tasty as the American craft brews.

I poured an 11.2oz bottle into a flared snifter. There was no freshness date and it cost $4.79 ($0.42 per ounce).

Appearance: Pale orange hue with an extremely cloudy body. Initially pours to a large, bright white layer of foam but it mostly dissipates and leaves little lacing. For what it’s worth, this is the foamiest gose I’ve ever seen.

Smell: A light citrusy scent of orange and coriander. The bacteria presence is noticeable and gives the nose a bit of a tangy quality – but in a good way, of course.

Taste: Most brews of the style I’ve had tend to come out swinging, but this one is cool, calm and collected. I get a lovely orange and coriander flavor right away, along with a bit of a wheaty sensation. There’s a mild salty sensation that lingers in the background. Once the swig hits the apex, it punches the tongue with a dry bitterness and a light sourness. On the aftertaste there is a lingering sensation of tartness and a bit of sour. I also notice a distinct lemon/lime flavor as well. The flavor fades rather quickly, but what’s there is quite enjoyable. I don’t think anyone would be put off by this palette.

Drinkability: The best way to drink Leipziger Gose is on a hot summer’s day (or night) so that it can deliver on its performance promise of being refreshing and quaffable. At only 4.6% ABV, this is definitely what I would consider a session beer for the warmer months…. That is, if it weren’t so expensive and rare. This brewery should sell this in 500ml cans – it would sell a lot of units very quickly.

RATING: 8/10
