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

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2011 From the bottle into a tulip glass: appearance is a hazy golden-orange honey color with lively eggshell colored head which dissipates gradually. It contains a definitive aroma of Belgian yeast, barnyard or damp hay, citrus and alcohol, sort of wine-y. Pucker up... tastes a bit like a lemon slice with a dash of salt. Carbonation is lively. I would say it’s medium bodied. It dances well on the tongue. The flavor is straight forward and offers only slight complexity as it warms. I apologize to the community, as I am the one who added this beer and clicked submit without correcting the fields. The name is Choc Brewmaster’s Signature Michael Lalli Gose. It is a tart ale, per the president of Choc Brewing Co.

11/4/11. 750mL bottle courtesy ericandersnavy! Super hazy/cloudy yellowish/orange pour with a frothy white head that fades fast. Funky aroma of chinese food, salt, sourness, and chalk - it reminds me of a salty berliner weiss. Tart, dry lemon peel flavor that lingers salty like a small mouthful of sea water. It’s like a salty berliner weiss. Interesting, but good.

Bomber : Poor is murky medium gold, with a one finger, fine bubbled spirtzy white head into this glass. It retains poorly here. I think this one has faded a touch at this point - Whatever. The nose is metallic, coriander, with doughey malts and a touch of lemongrass. The flavor profile is quite nice, though (still) - tart lemon and spent grain, with a nice spice note and a salty, dry finish.

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

Very excited to see this sitting on the table, so when i picked it up to read the back label- i was told by the owner to pop it and take the first pour, so i did! .. . pours a lightly bubbled light gold .. . good propa foam, lacing is a beast .. . light light dough, hay, and an old pretzel .. . a touch muddled and middle of the road for a gose, some might call it balanced but i like my gose’s doughier or tarter .. . . Somebody stole my pants.
