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

Shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt. The beer is transparent and light orange colored, with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers white grape juice, grape skins, white wine, spice. The flavor resembles ocean water. Salty and earthy. Lingering sea salt in the finish. A bit of a puckering sensation in the cheeks. Very bold flavor. Definitely recognizable as a gose right off the bat. A very good example of the style, I would definitely have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2011

[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.

Poured and shared with a group of friends at an amazing lil brewery up here in Maine ! Poured a slightly hazy golden hue with a small head... aromas of wheat, beeswax and a hint of cheese... never know what the flavor is all about by the smell... flavors were great; tart, crisp, snappy, citrus, seawater and grass ! Wish I could get more...
