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

ben4321 (4444) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Location: 750 ml bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 11/16/11

Aroma: The nose is a little tart, some citrus, a hint of funk, and just a little bit of spice
Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange color with a clean looking, foamy white head
Flavor: Tastes quite a bit more sour then the nose would indicate, citrus/lemon, lightly sweet, and salty too
Palate: This one is medium bodied, its a touch watery, and it finishes with a salty tingle on the tongue
Overall Impression: This was an interesting beer. It’s like a much better version of Miller Chill! (I kid, I kid) Sorry, that was mean, it doesn’t really taste anything like Miller Chill, but it is a combination effort of a sour citrus fruit (lemons in this case) and salt, so it has that part in common. I’ll stop with the poor attempt to be funny and just say this: I liked this one, it is rather sour, and a touch salty, but the combination seems to work. It is a touch watery on the mouth, but otherwise has a pretty decent feel. The head has a nice, thick foam on top of it, that looks a little cleaner then the heads of most beers. I’d drink it again, but it isn’t something I’d want to drink in this kind of quantity again anytime soon. A 750 ml bottle of this one is probably better for sharing.

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.
