COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The German city of Leipzig is home to one of the world’s most unusual styles: Gose (pronounced "goes-ah"), a tart wheat brew. Despite a centuries old lineage, this eclectic brew recently faced extinction. We pay tribute to this style’s rich history by using premium German pilsner malt, wheat, a dash of coriander and salt. The sourness and dry finish are the perfect treat on a hot summer day. Cheers, Michael Lalli

_angst_ (2685) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2012
Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whisky 2012. Pours hazy pale golden with a small frothy offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and sour with bananas, dark grapes, juiocy ripe oranges and lemons, white bread, peppery dry wood and hay. Taste is tiny sweet, sour and salty with white bread, rock salt, cloves, lemon juice, hay, dry soil and hints of rose pepper. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and light bodied. Finish is sour, tart and tiny salty with lemon juice, wood, lemon zest, crackers, hay and rose pepper. A nice surprise.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Into a snifter. Cloudy orange color with a finger of head that is quickly gone. It smells like a German Riesling wine. The coriander comes through and a little banana. Interesting taste. Light flavor upfront, bubbly, salty and sour lemon (lots). Very sour. It kinda grows on you or at least on me. Higher carbonation and lighter body. A little sticky texture. They created a beer that was almost lost... maybe there was a reason for it not being popular. Absolutely worth finding and trying though.

Bottle. Yellow hazy. Funk, sourdough, yogurt, orange peel. A bit of coriander, barnyard. The body is a bit funky, tastes a bit like freshly squeezed oranges (with pulp). Really nice drink.

Tart, dry, has some heft and body to it from the wheat. salty, touch of citrus character, could sip on this all day. Has something on the back end that sets this off.
