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!

gramity (1600) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
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.

beastiefan2k (3336) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2016
22oz bomber gifted by fiulijn. Bottle dated 6.23.14, so almost 2 years old. Love the label art. Pop the cap and foam slowly rises up the neck. Poured into St. Louis flute glass. As expected, the head is strong and voluminous. Very hazy pale color. Aroma has light coriander, light fruit ester. A little sweet and a little herbal-citrus. Flavor is again a very fine blend of ester and citric herbal character. Not tart but light with a fuller body. Finishes light. I’ve been drinking a lot of Gose in the New World in the past few years and this is one of the more superior ones. The average is way low, damn Canadians.

pushkinwow (2495) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 Ottawa Year-end celebration. Pours a very pale gold with a faint white head. Bready and bubblegum with a salt overlay, slightly sweet with an overlay of light tartness and saltiness, moderate carbonation and mild body, refreshing but just can’t get past the salt which isn’t my thing.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light hazy yellow color ale with a large white foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of light tart notes is refreshing and pleasant. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with hints of salt. Body is light with good carbonation. Refreshing and pleasant but maybe a tad one-dimensional.

barnyard, herbs, pale, hazy, salty, medium sourness. Just not very good, but maybe true to style.

DiarmaidBHK (4085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2015
draft at the Churchill. Served in a frozen glass which I’m sure made an impact on the experience. Poured golden with a white head. slight sour notes on the nose. A bit of salt on the tongue. finishes clean. it’s a decent enough beer but not particularly exciting for the style.
