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.

This was my first try of the Gose style, and I must say I am impressed. The most interesting aspect is the mouthfeel. It has a dry refreshing summer wheat beer character but a fullness that is quite satifying. It has a light lemony wheat flavor that is alike american wheat beers but with coriander and some brettanomyces funk and acidity. It doesn’t necessarily taste like salt but a saltine like taste is detectable. Perfect for a lazy summer day.

Bottle. Light sour malt aroma - slight hint of coriander. Light yellow amber with small head. Primarily a sour wheat malt flavor - not near the sourness of a Berliner Weisse or lambic. Actually more like a good Zwickelbier. Very nice and smooth - glad I found this one

I have no idea why I liked this one so much (maybe cuz it cost me some bucks), but I reallly enjoyed it. Poured with a very large head, mostly from the high carbonation. The lacing was minimal, slightly hazy pale golden yellow (with light amber hues) color. The aroma was somewhat funky, barn, and sweet coriander. The flavor as incredibly refreshing: a wheat base (with barn / hay flavors), citrus flavors, lightly spiced and coriander. The lactic sourness was refreshing and enjoyable (ie. not overdone), much better than the berliner weiss beers I’ve had. A great choice for the summer, although expensive. Almost a cross between a saison, lambic, and berliner weiss.

Bottle poured pale straw with nice white head. Aroma has a slight noble hop aroma and coriander. Flavor has a sweetness fromt the wheat with a dry dry finish. The latic acid lingers on the palate.

Bottle. Pours a very light copper, extremely clear with a tight white head. Aroma is initially spice (coriander), but after that mellows, the malt is there. Medium light body. Has a sweetness from the wheat up front, but dries out quickly, and finishes a bit tart. Lactic is noticeable in the finish, but doesn’t go so far as to be sour. Overall, a very interesting beer. Basically a wheat beer with coriander, but the lactic and salt add layers of complexity. Interesting for sure, but I’m not a huge fan.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Hazy gold with a fizzy, foamy, white head. Extra point for the cool bottle. Wheat nose from a foot away. Musty funk, light lemony citrus, also. Flavors are musty funk, lemon, sourness, grains, flowery hops. Medium, smooth body. Unique.

Pours a pale amber with lots of floaties and a big white head. The aroma is light lacto, lemons and wheat. The flavor is corriander, salty with a lemony lactic tang. Light body with lively carbonation. Very refreshing

Bottle, RBESG, August 2005. Thought I’d lost my notes for this one as I was reduced to using scraps of paper after my notebook was full, but I’ve just found where I put them. This is weird stuff. The sharp, lemony lambic-like character is interesting, but marry that to an underlying hefeweizen type vibe, throw in some spices and things get very odd indeed. Can’t say I picked up any added salt, which is probably just as well. Interesting and unique. Glad I got the chance to try it.

Tap from the source. Cloudy orange/golden pour with lively fizz and a two-inch soapy head. Strong aroma, wheat and coriander especially. This one tastes a little sweeter and much less sour than the Döllnitzer Ritterguts brewed by Bauer. Big distinction in the taste, however, is the salt! A major player here, really the first salty beer I’ve had, establishes itself in the dry finish and lasts, makes me thirstier, each gulp makes me want to drink more, just like after finishing a bag of pretzels. Coriander comes through, too, but it’s light. This is smooth and nice, but its crosstown rival just has so much more sourness, is so much more challenging. Interesting aftertaste, though, and a good brew on this warm summery day.
