COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gose was first brewed in the early 16th century in the town of Goslar where the style gets it’s name. It became so popular in Leipzig, that local breweries started to make it themselves. Originally, Gose was spontaneously-fermented, however brewers worked out how to achieve the same effect by using a combination of top-fermenting yeast and lacto bacillus bacteria and when the beer was filled into the characteristic long-necked bottles (illustrated on our label) the beer began a secondary fermentation where a plug of yeast would rise up the neck and naturally seal the bottle. Our version of Gose is brewed in a very traditional method (without the yeast plug) and presents as dry, tart, effervesent and citrusy. It is an amazing refresher on a hot summer’s day!

Hazy light tan, the aroma has a bit of footy yeast, otherwise maybe a hint of tartness. Tart, with a bit of wheatiness, fresh, and a hint of saltiness. This is a decent wheat ale...doesn’t really scream gose...not great.

GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Clear yellow with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is salt, wet straw, hint of caramel and stone fruits. Light bodied, some sweet, salty and sour notes on the palate, with the salt lingering in the aftertaste. Flavour is honey, lemon, salt, hint of wheat-like sweetness in the background. I quite like it

Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
Bomber. Unclear pale yellow, big frothy white head settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of spicy coriander and saltchuck. Tart citrus, wheaty and yeasty taste, no bitterness, sour spiciness, coriander with a peculiar saline quality. Well carbonated, lighter bodied, low hopped. Finishes crisp and dry. Needs an infusion of sweetness to balance it out, which apparently used to be the practice. Not a fan of this style. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

A pale ale with significant and not overwhelming gose character. Orange taste. Light mouthfeel. Thanks Rutager.

dresden (730) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
This is my first gose, so I really have nothing to compare it to, but it was enjoyable. Hazy straw golden with a acidic head. Aroma of bread dough, coriander, sour wheat. Taste is a bit soapy and salty, not a sour as I thought it might have been, quite mild actually. Not bad.

andrewturba (920) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a large rocky white head that slowly dissolves leaving a bunch of rings of lace. Aroma is lemony citrus, perfumey, salt water like, and a bit bready. Flavour is salty, mildly lemony, lightly sour/tart, grass and wheat. I?m loving this style for the summer, personally I would drink this before a hefe 9 times out of 10.

Reimer96 (1064) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a lacey white head. Aroma of straw, malts, lemon tartness and cereal. Taste is crisp lemon tartness blended well with a pale malt and cereal like flavor. Even a bit of honey flavor in there too, nice crisp and refreshing gose.

Ferris (2019) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle - Pale malts, lemon, straw, little farmhouse and some yeast. Cloudy pale yellow with a rich bubbly head. Quick hit of honey, lemon, grassy flavour then it disappears completely with a mild soapy salty finish. A great summer beer I could drink all night.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
650ml bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light notes of salt, some noble hops, some grass and biscuity malt. Flavour brings out moderate salt, some grassy hops, a little bit of spice, and biscuity malt. The salt isn’t *that* dominant, but is well-situated. Thirst-quenching and solid, but nothing spectacular.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Bomber. Pours gold with white head. Smell of salt is very noticeable at first but lessens. Also wheat notes and pear. Flavour is heffy with a bit of salt. Pretty soft. Enjoyable. Don’t think the critters had as much an effect as expected. Wouldn’t be surprised to find more of that aspect in a future batch.
