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.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Poured a cloudy white. Aroma of coriander and lemon. Taste is acidic with a touch of banana. Salt can be tasted in the finish, which doesn’t seem to add anything of importance to the beer. Refreshing and different.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is a little salty and grainy. Flavor has notes of grain, citrus/lemon, salt, faint spice and light sourness. The body is medium to light bodied with lively carbonation. Didn’t care for this one too much.

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2005
500ml bottle. Interesting aroma, faintly sour and citric with traits of wheat and grain, some doughy bread as well. Medium golden amber color, quite hazy and lightly sedimented with a foamy, lasting head. Malty, wheaty flavor profile, lightly citric with traces of lemon and spice, some tartness, faint saltiness and mustiness on the dry finish. Bubbly mouthfeel, clean and light on the palate. Refreshing and different.

Well, my bottle was not the long necked funky kind, but the beer was unusual nonetheless. Who needs a beer purity law ... let’s through in some coriander. Definitely a wheat beer, definitely the spicey clovey kind, not the sweet banana fruity kind. Beautiful orange apricot appearance, with a white head that disappears very quickly and very little fizzy mouthfeel. Dry finish, with a lingering saltiness. Not at all what I expected; with the low alcohol, low sugar, and limited coriander it is not at all like a Belgian coriander wheat. But with the low alcohol, dry finish, and residual saltiness it is a great beer on a hot summer day ater an afternoon on the golf course. Don’t let the slightly lambic nose through you off, this is an easy beer to drink.

Hazy golden orange color with a modest soft head and very little carbonation. Aroma was apple cidery with some coriander. Tasted tart with wheat and touch of orange peel-quite dry with a distinct underlying saltiness. Short finish with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Different and well worth trying.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a hazy copper with a lacy off-white head. Smell is spicy and lightly salty and sweet wheat malt. Taste is grainy wheat with underlying spice. Saltiness doesn’t come through until later, it’s cumulative. The more you drink, the more saltiness on the palate. While the beer is smooth and creamy in the mouth, the saltiness builds and makes this brew less than drinkable, at least more than one bottle at a time. But a unique experience that I would recommend and I will indulge in again.

Has an aged german beer quality in the aroma -- same yeast probably as a German wheat beer. The coriander and salt are not distinguished. A quaint little brew.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2005 Re-rate 10-13-05: Pours cloudy gold with a white odd consistency ring of bubbles. Smells of straw, grass, lemon. Taste is very unusual with strong grapefruit notes, but very citrussy, salty and not bitter at all. Some piney elements are also present and the bubbles are flat and champagne-like on the tongue. Very strange beer, but very enjoyable.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2005
An unspectacular drink. Hazy orange with small creamy head. The aroma was wheaty, spicy, fruity. Medium body and watery texture. Flavor was uninspired. Mediocre wheat style beer.

I had a leinies right before this, and I didn’t realize that I had begun drinking something different. The aroma is a bit malty, but otherwise nothing doing. Pour is dark cloudy orange with a head that seems to have taken out a 30-day lease. Palate is bright, coppery (metallic), astringent, and crisp. Lactic acid is incredibly obvious, and not welcome. Finishes with a near-barley nose, but edges back toward a generic yeastiness. Not a major find for me.
