COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Draft. Aroma: Wheat malt, light spice (which doesn’t seem like coriander at all), lemon, and a light caramel and toast note. Appearance: Pale yellow in color and cloudy. White head was small and foamy with fair retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lightly toast and wheat, yeast and very light caramel. Tart lemon has a nice sourness to it. The salt comes in mid-taste and lingers into the finish. Salt adds a richness and roundness to the whole thing. Medium-sweet finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: First time I’ve had this style, and I really liked it. Refreshing and tasty. The salt was interesting and definitely enhanced the beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2621) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Cloudy copper color, medium fine head. Aroma slightly wheaty, spicy but not distinctly coriander, and seemingly salty, perhaps like the smell of the ocean. A bare hint of melanoidin. Flavor, I have to say, is not unlike an American wheat. I detect no esters nor phenols at all. Just the same generic spiciness in the nose, and a definitely lingering saltiness, which certainly makes this one unique. Pleasingly soft, almost full, mouthfeel. Only vaguely tart, I can’t really get any lactic character out of it.

ChainGangGuy (4505) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale yellow body filled with dark floaties and a topped by a thinning white head. Smell: Lightly tart lemon wheat aroma that has, for me, only a mild coriander presence, but a good bit of saltiness to it, like standing near the ocean. Taste: Wheat base imparting a gentle sweetness rounded out by soft citrus notes and a light spicing of coriander. Both the salt and the lactic qualities present themselves in the dry, lasting finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: I am totally powerless to resist it’s refreshing uniqueness. Everyone wins when they play Duck, Duck, Gose.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head. Aroma is salty, sour, and wheat. Flavor is bitter, salty, and a bitter finish. Cool looking bottle.

Lowe1983 (1385) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Pours a brownish-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of spices, toasted malts, caramel and sweet malts, and some creaminess. Flavor starts off with just a slight hint of coriander then it gives way to the toasted and caramel malts. FInishes with a little bit of saltiness to it. Overall this wasn’t bad, it was quite interesting, but not bad at all.

malrubius (2069) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Draft sample at Hop Devil (late June ’07 from notes). Very pale yellow. Coriander (?) spice aroma. Salty, limey flavor, like a beer margarita. Salty finish, cloying. I just don’t get this one.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Had this a long time ago, mostly attracted by the bottle. I remember it tasted pretty terrible, but I think it could use a re-rate.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle - A very unusual beer. Poured a cloudy amber color with thick dark yeast in the bottle. Head lasted a while and was fairly thick. Spicy yeasty aroma. FLavor is sweet with a sour finish. Like a cross between a wheat beer and a mild lambic. Very tasty.

Bottle. Slightly musty on the nose with hints of bread and salt. Pours a nice rich amber with decent carbonation. Lightly roasted malt on the palate. I could taste the salt on my lips minutes after I took a sip. Very subdued flavor. Creamy on the palate.
