COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermenting, sour and slightly salty tasting special beer of Leipzig. The Gose is an own, very old beer type and does not correspond to the German purity requirement. It is brewed traditionally with coriander and salt - thereby and by the additional lactic acid fermentation her quite special characteristic gets the Gose. It has certain resemblances to the Lichtenhainer beer as well as to the Belgian Geuze.

Ontape (344) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
500 ml bottle. Absolutely classic and hard to fault. No head, clear orange/gold. Aroma is lacto tang, sea water, touch of spice. Taste has a smooth tartness with very pleasant lacto characteristics -- very clean and delicious. Perfect amount of sour and salt. Yum!

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Slightly cloudy straw color with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of lemons, yeast and herbal wheat. The finish is mildly tart with a citrusy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ragnampiza (512) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
On tap at Les Vignerons. Didn’t bother to review it properly, but I did like it, a lot. So refreshing and juicy, properly dry and crisp. Not as salty as other goses, but spot on. Moderately acidic/tart. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Solid.

Many thanks to kappldav123 for this bottle. Very smooth, slightly salty, not too deep, but nice and easy to drink. Slightly salty hints, very fresh and slightly sourish. No bitter hints in the aftertaste, slightly sourish, fresh and nice!

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep gold color with a fairly lasting white head. The nose has a light touch of grain and lemon. A pleasant tartness greets you up front with a touch of grain, lemon pith, and just a bit of salinity. Light in body and very refreshing. Recommended.

Lilja (1714) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Fat på Söder om Småland. Smak och doft av syrliga äpplen, jäst, ladugård, hö, vita vinbär med toner av vinäger, koriander och mjölksyra. Syrlig, frisk med toner av passionsfruktskärnor i beskan. Välbalanserad mellan syra och sötma. Fantastiskt uppfriskande och gott.

Bottle; pours a cloudy straw color with a fast dissipating white head; aroma is a little sour with citrus and malt with some spice; taste is tart with fruit, some saltiness, and spice; has bitter and dry finish but is very refreshing; I like this beer the more I sip on it.
