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!

On tap @ Alibi Room. Milky golden pour with white foam. Smells of lime zest and banana cream pie. Some melon and peach, tart citrus, and lemon peel. Subtle spiciness. Flavor has what I can only describe as sea foam; slightly salt and very, very light. Some bananas, lime zest, and a hint of coriander spiciness. Mild tartness of melon and lemons. Bready, too. Nice.

Bottle (650 ml). From Damon, thanks! Clear golden with a small persistent white head and little lacing. Aroma is mostly of coriander, but there’s also wheat, herbal notes and light salt. Taste is also dominated by coriander along wheat acidity, light salt and herbal presence. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Citrusy and coriander finish. Short aftertaste. A tad too Wit-like for my liking, but still quite drinkable. Decent/good.

2014-08-03, bottle from Hillside Liquor, Victoria, 7-4-7-3-16=37
Cloudy blond color, but also with a orange hue and a bright light; generous, persistent head. Very nice aroma, bready, with evident lactic. Well carbonated, with soft mouthfeel; there is some malt flavor, lemon, salt and lactic acid, each in moderate quantity; light crackers.
Excellent thirst quencher; I will see if it develops further, in a few months.

2014-07-02, draught at Darby’s Pub, Vancouver, 7-3-7-3-16=36
Cloudy light blond color with small head. The aroma is lightly lemony, fresh, lactic, hint of berries. Soft mouthfeel; it has a mild bready flavor, lactic acid, lemon touch, and the saltiness is well integrated; great balance, finishing with correct bitterness.
Excellent Gose.
The next step would be adding some smoked malt for even more greatness.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
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 (1159) - 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 (1212) - 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 (828) - 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.
