Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting ale that was first brewed in 1824. It is the beer specialty of Leipzig and the oldest still existing Gose brand in the world. Gose is an own, ancient style of beer that does not correspond to the German purity law. Even today, it is still brewed with an admixture of coriander and salt in the traditional way with the special historic Gose yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by the additional lactate fermentation.

Oddly grapey nose, concord grapes and white wine. Hazy amber, thin head. Tart sauvignon blanc, oak, faint wheat bread. Medium body, somewhat spritzy. I like it.

Zlotta (1910) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2016
0.5 l bottle from ’Rudat’, best before May 2016. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, fluffy, quickly collapsing, white head. Sweetish, spicy and a bit sourish-fruity aroma of lots of coriander, apple peel, some citrus and wheat. Sourish-fruity, slightly spicy taste of citrus, apple peel, wheat, some vanilla and coriander, followed by a short, slightly tart, rather spicy and a little salty-minerally finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Tasty and refreshing, very well-balanced, overall highly drinkable and a good Gose!

Clear and golden. Aroma is strangely salty and perfumed. Salty and a bit sour. Good if you have a mouth ulcer.

Beachmaster (445) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy light yellow, with a small white head that fades quickly. Nose is a very faint aroma of citrus. Taste is light malt up front, giving way to slightly tart and slightly salty wheat. Short finish. Not bad, but not my favorite gose.

mrjez (440) - Osaka, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2016
500ml bottle from Seijo Ishii. Pours gold with a decent head of white foam. Sour aroma, acidic, a hint of yoghurt, ale malt, citrus. Nice flavour, very citric and tart. Mild undercurrent of salt which carries a refreshing aspect. Light, reasonably dry summer beer, lingering citrus. Nicely balanced and enjoyable.

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 8, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma has wheat, honey and lemon. Taste follows with a light lemon tartness but also an underlying honey like flavor. Body is on the lighter side and has a crisp carbonation. Really classic, well made gose.

Bottle. It poured a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma was light fruit and the taste was sour fruitiness - grapes and lemon and some spices.

Ritterguts Gose is one of the better-known longstanding beers in a little-known style. Thanks to the resurgence of Gose, more people should be finding out about this brew. It’s a strange one, as you’d expect from the style. Cloudy yellow pour. Yeasty, salty, lemony, and spicy. Not as spritzy and intensely sour as some of the more modern variants. Still, it’s pleasingly traditional and well-suited for a hot day.
