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

bottle... pours a murky copper gold, a bit of copper, off white lasting head... the aroma is lots of coriander, a bit sweet, salt, and tart, not bad... the taste is surprisingly good for a Oklahoma gose, a bit of too much salt that would make it tough to drink the whole bottle your self, but I was impressed

Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with small frothy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is sour fruit and grain. Thin mouthfeel with light sourness and salt in the finish. Easy to drink, very good.

PhillyCraft (3070) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle shared at tasting, pours clearish golden with light head, not lasting. Lemons, salt, wood, wheat and yeast dominate the smell and taste. Light to medium body. Salty and tart.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2012
pours a hazy, ruddy yellow/amber with a thick white head. Aroma is pretty much like a lightly soured pilsner...crisp hoppiness...citrus...with mild soapy notes, grassy with light maltiness. Flavor is much more sour than the aroma suggests...acidic and lemony with some musty funk...wheaty. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a tart dry finish. Interesting and tasty!

Hermod (3001) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2012
15cl sample from bottle @SBWF12. Poured hazy, unclear apple juice looking with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is tart, sour yogurt and light spicy. Flavor has yogurt, fresh orange juice, more tartness towards finish. Very dry, salty. Interesting, crisp and quite refreshing.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Draft - Vintage 2012 - Citrus, mandarin oranges and salt. Cloudy orange/yellow with a bubbly white head. Salty all the way through, mellow tartness and a mandarin orange, vs the lemon that is normal. Although odd in the sweetness, it is quite nice and different. I like it.

750 ml. bottle. Shared with multiple others at brew club, thanks to Chuck. Pours a minimal white head, over a cloudy, yellow (SRM 4) body....nose is citrus (lime), salt....taste is moderately sour, with lime tones, sweat, salt, coriander....mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This is my first tasting of this very different style. It almost has some of the qualities of a margarita with the salt, citrus combination, but there are other more complex tones that are hard to describe. I’ll try it again if I can find it. BJCP 7/3/11/4/7

_angst_ (2556) - 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.

[Bottle] Pours a hazy golden color with a dense cap of foamy head on top. Nose is of Belgian yeast, soured grains, citrus and lighter notes of wheat malts. Sour taste is yeasty and grainy. Wheat, brine, lemon/lime, coriander and cereal malts round out the taste. Mildly refreshing and a bit more sour compared to the German version. Lively carbonation levels. Another great addition to the series from Choc.
