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.

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. This is my first gose, and I look forward to it. The color is murky, dark golden and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of fruit, peach, dust, grain and chewing gum. The flavour is slightly sour, slightly sweet and fruity with lemon being the dominant fruit note. It’s very refreshing, uncomplicated and nice.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 17, 2008
(330 ml bottle from Bootlegger’s) Pours cloudy gold with a sturdy two fingers of white head. Aroma is sort of honeyish with some hops, perhaps a hint of smoke. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a bit fizzy from the noticeable carbonation. Weepy sheets of lacing. Flavor is quite gueuze-like, sourish and tangy with some honeyish maltiness underneath. Spice/coriander notes emerge more toward finish as it warms. Fairly acidic. Guess this would a German gueuze? One of those that I didn’t particularly enjoy but appreciate its quality.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle: Pours a hazy pale yellow colorw ith small white head. Nose is light but with touches of wheat, salt, coriander, citrus orange, funk and earthiness. Initial taste tart, citrus, salt, coriander and some grassiness. Similar to lite version of lambic gueze. Mid palate displays some other citrus qualties like lemon. Finishing with a good palate duration and refreshing. Extremely light bodied and easy drinking for a tasty treat. Mouthfeel is a little aggressive like champaign but is interesting. Average head retention.

Bottled. BBOLG pours hazy and yellow with a medium-sized fine head. I smell hay and citrus acid. the body is light and crisp. The taste is tart and refreshing with grassy flavors along with coriander. The salt makes a nice balanced flavor with the acid.. I’m drinking this beer after a hike and it is quite thirst quenching. The finish is quick with little aftertaste but a certain nose-tingle does linger.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2008
bottle by way of thecheeseman... pours a hazy rich copper/orange brown with a wispy off white head. initial metallic malty smell disappears to reveal aromas of musty wheat, orange, earthy spice, grass, tart and a very noticeable mineral/stoney quality like instant lemonade of a vitamin pill. the palate is much more tart than i was expecting... yet very well balanced. flavors of lemon, orange, grass, grain/malt richness, coriander and a bit of chalkiness. warm spicy finish with a salty yeast aftertaste. it later burps up milky lactic acid. medium body with a killer foamy soft mouth feel. neat...

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2008
11.2 oz bottle: Pale yellow pour with a dash of amber and a two finger head that settles into a firm cap. The nose is inviting with tart wheat, sweet orange and soft coriander. The tart note is amplified on the tongue, leading the way into a nicely complex body. Light and drinkable, the Gose offers sweet wheat, sea salts, esthery lemon and sourdough bread. Finishes spritzy and tart, cleaning the palate in its wake. Very interesting.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Re-rate 6/10/14: Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of coriander, yeast, wheat and fruits. Moderately tart flavor with wheat, coriander, citrus and a salty note. Light-bodied. Refreshing. 6/3/7/3/14=3.3

(6/22/08) Draught at Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof in Leipzig. Cloudy yellow-orange with a medium white head. Big coriander nose with wheat, some yeast and some fruitiness. Sourish wheaty flavor with lots of coriander, some salt notes, some citrus and a bit of banana. Medium-bodied. Not as good as the Döllnitzer Ritterguts Gose but still nice and refreshing. 6/47/3/14=3.4

Wow, this is interesting. Definitely a lot of lactic acid and salt in the aroma. Some melon and pear- white fruits. Taste is fruity white melon, salty, with touches of spice. Finishes with a lingering lactic sourness and saltiness that is not overwhelming. I really like this style, I think.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2008
By all accounts a good looking german ale with decent head and a mild hope wheat aroma. The beer was great on the pallet, crisp and clear but what gave me the twist was the wild salt flavor on the back of the palate like a salt lick! It makes you want to drink more and keeps you thirsty. A bit of a dry salty after taste.

moseslikesbeer (183) - conestoga, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
bottle shared by the_Captain with the other Devonshire bros. I didn’t know what to think going into this one and I have to say I liked it. Looked like a wheat beer and tasted like a sour. My only real complaint was that the salt in the taste was a little too over the top. Nice ale. Thanks Mark!!!
