Another interesting and largely successful beer from Freigeist. Spruce assumes the responsibility of hops. There’s a nice spiciness as a result. Malt body accentuates the herbal qualities and a light dry sourness finishes it off.

Gerbeer (3130) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2016
On tap. Pours a copper color with light head. Aromas of wet malts, citrus and forest floor. Flavor of limes, lemon cleaner, wheat malts, and salty herbs. Heavy on industrial cleaner. Knocks me off.

fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Draught at Steel Toad, Vancouver, as Freigeist Geisterzug Gose; 250ml
Light amber, strange color for a Gose, cloudy but bright, with compact head. The aroma is mild, bread and spruce. Good body strength, it’s lowly carbonated and it has some residual sweetness, very low lactic character or acidity, moderate salt, and a trace of spruce. A bit soapy and minty.
It’s clean and it’s not a bad beer, but it removes the good expected characteristics of a Gose.

ebone1988 (1371) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Aroma is salt, metallic, some wheat I guess, smells like a bad lager. Appearance is darker golden, white head, somewhat hazy. Taste is wheat, metallic, then salt, not much on spruce, pretty plain and boring. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, not crisp initially bit it gets there I guess, with a strong Budwesier aftertaste. Overall, this one is incredibly disappointing.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle - Hazy golden colour, medium whithe head, good retention. Bready aromas with dough and lemon juice. Taste is mildly salty with some crushed grains, some bread and lemon and orange juice. Light body, average carbonation, smooth texture dry and tart finish. Nice refreshing beer, but not my favourite.

SPDickerman (1178) - Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Smells of wheat and tartness. Taste is tart, subtle sweetness, and hints of fruit. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Freigeist Geisterzug Traditional Gose finishes with a subtle tartness.

degbert (1680) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2016
OK. Let’s discuss this beer by the label. ’Spruced Traditional Gose Beer’. SPRUCED: Could hardly taste the spruce. There were earth notes, some sort of weird lactic thing like Camembert rind, and a lot of sweetness. TRADITIONAL: Not even. No carbonation. As for the rest, see below. GOSE: Checking RB’s own definition, this beer failed on "salt", "tart", and "strong wheat character". Depending on how you feel about 5%, it might fail on "low-alcohol". BEER: No carbonation. No head. No essential...beeriness. And I’ve drank a lot of funky beers in my time. This thing was as lifeless as a vampire convention. In short...utter fail. There is a fine line between "experimental" and "utter disaster". This beer crossed it, then for good measure crossed it twice and then peed on it.

Oakes (15617) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
Draught @ Bestie. Very cloudy. Yeasty nose with subtle fruitiness and a dash of pepper and limey fruits. Salty up front, mellow wheaty tartness. Nice balance, light refreshing and complex.
