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 ďGoseĒ 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.

Orange color with a medium head. Aroma of oranges with some corriander. The taste was overwhelmingly corriander, so much so that I found it hard to pick up much else but a little wheat. It was almost like a cranked Wit.

Marmalade Coloring. With Good White Head. Spicy Aroma...Coriander... Carbonated on The Tongue...Tasted LIke a Wheat Beer...and Now That I Read the Descripton, I see Thatís the Case. A Little Odd But Overall an Interesting Experience..Worth Trying.

joet (2056) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Medium sour with a light medium body and plenty of yeasty aromas. Light toasty aromas. Some light sour fruit. Very dry. Citric flavors. Not real pretty in the glass - ephemeral head and sticky lacing. Very interesting and gets better as it warms yielding earthy basement and topical fruit aromas. Some light mineral feel. Very attractive bottle. Much thanks to pivo and yogi for this treasure!

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Pours a hazy gold orange color with a nice creamy head with small bubles that give a good lacing to the glass. The nose is of coriander with slight sour, bread and malty notes. The body and testure are nice and light. It has a citrus and coriander flavor to it that is very nice. This is a very drinkable beer.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 When I was a kid, some of the old men used to salt their beers, and I never knew why. This beer, in which the brewer adds salt to the boil, tells me that it was done to add another dimension of bitterness to the drink. It pours a hazy, dark orange color with a slight, cream colored head. You can detect the salt in the aroma, along with coriander and peppery scents. It tastes surprizingly good, a malty flavor, bitter with fruits and spices. Finishes fairly bitter and pretty dry. Iím glad I tried it.

Bottle: I didnít really know what to expect with this one. Hazy orange/light amber color with a small white head. Real nice aroma from the beer, like nothing Iíve smelled. Salty aroma, with coriander, sweet malty alcohol, lots of sweet fruit (apples, pears, banana), some citrus, and pepper. Tastes intially salty and bitter. This quickly changes to highlight some of the geuze-like qualities combined with some nice apple, pear, bitter chocolate, plum. Finishes acidic, very dry, and a bit watery. Interesting.

Come on people, those of you who donít taste the salt just arenít paying attention...just kidding...a dark golden beer with a slightly fruity, salty, and dry scent. Taste is the same, salty, corriander, sublime malt and hops. This isnít my idea of a session beer, and I may or may not ever try it again, but if I were in Leipzig and was drinking this baby fresh on tap donít ya know I would be drinking it and loving it. Unique, tasty, interesting brew!

Odd appearance, hazy golden orange, decent size off white head. The body looked lifeless, but that head just never went away. Aroma akin to a hefeweizen, some banana, some wheat, some yeast. Banana in the flavor, along with a bit of spice, slightly tart, maybe even a little cidery. Interesting flavor to say the least. Not highly carbonated but yet prickly in some way. Also a bit creamy and easily quaffable. Quite interesting and would certainly make for a refreshing summer beer.

2004? Draught @ Redbones. Well hereís to drinking at 1 o clock in the afternoon on Saturday. No idea what to expect. Pours a copper-amber pretty clear with a small white head. Aroma of faint wheat and yeast and a hint of dried leaves (thatís what it reminded me of, dried leaves being gathered up to be burnt). Anyways, it tasted very similar to a gueuze. Very tart, lightly yeasty, though not funky. No real salt touches, though it was a bit strangely watery/dry. I cant put my finger on this one, but itís pretty tastey. I just didnt like the fact that it was fairly watery and thin at the end. Good spicy, lightly dry caramel flavor. Interesting.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2004
My first "gose" ever...didnít even know what one was until I bought this bottle. Okay, so "gose" it is! Appearance: cloudy pale orange color, with a thick, creamy white head. Nice, attractive. Aroma: spicy, yet soft, with whiffs of fresh sea-foam like Iím detected in weizens, big with spice, and citrus, and so far Iím geared up for something like a hefe or a wit... Taste: unusual! Dry, and mellow, with an initial sourness. Not at all like I was expecting after that nose, way too flat on the palate. Rather light-bodied, cool and mild, with a very soft finish. I think I can actually taste the salt, too, I get the merest taste of salt, without it being too salty. Very drinkable, this, very, very, although I liked it, but it couldnít love it. I needed more of a kick in the flavor for that. An intriguing style, rarely encountered, and quite easy to appreciate. If Iím ever in the mood for a mellow, dry brew that wonít go and blow my mind, gose it is!
