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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2364) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2014
4.2% on tap at Luppulo 12. My first German Gose a lovely cloudy honey gold with a foamy white head. A sour salty funky nose. Light bodied but wow what flavor! Salt, yoghurt, tart, lactic, wheat, think an amped up salty sour Yakult. Great. The nose is so so but the taste is phenomenal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I first tasted this beer 7-8 years ago at the Berlin beer festival. I thought it was a very nice beer and quite enjoyed it. Unfortunately, Ritterguts has changed its contract brewer and the recipe. The beer is quite simply no longer a Gose. It may come close to a Berliner Weiße, but it lacks both the salt and coriander that are characteristic of a Gose. The beer is quite drinkable, but it is mis-labelled.

Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahdon ollessa noin sormen paksuinen. Tuoksu on happaman sitruksinen, mutta samalla hieman hunajaisen makea sekä viljainen ja ruohoinen. Lopussa tulee yrttisyyttäkin melko selvästi. Maku on alkuun todella suolainen, mutta se tasaantuu selvästi ja kääntyy sitruunaisen happamaksi. Viljaa ja yrttistä mausteisuuttakin on joukossa, yrttiä etenkin lopussa. Tasapainoinen maku. Suutuntuma on alkuun hyvin suolainen, mutta kuivuu nopeasti ollen yllättävän täyteläinen prosentteihin nähden. Humala ei tunnu, johtuen osiksi vanhasta (BBE 30.9.-15) pullosta. Hieno gose, jossa suola ja happamuus ovat hyvässä tasapainossa. Loistava kesäjuomaksi, koska on myös mukavan kuiva.

JDBaker11058 (1359) - Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Appearance: deeper gold than I expected, largely clear, short and quickly vanishing near-white head. Aroma: typical gose aroma of green apples, lemon zest, cracked wheat, light white wine vinegar, and coriander--that is to say, very enticing. Taste: again, pretty typical gose characteristics, with maybe a bit more salt than usual. Finish: pleasant rush of activated glands at the jawline, lingering lacto tartness over some salt and crackers. Notes: Perfect example of one of my new favorite styles. Where have you been all my life? Bottle from Knightly Spirits, Orlando, Florida.

Clear, hazy hay color. Minimal soapy head. Nose has wheaty gains, coriander, roses, a hint of orange, slight banana, a bit metallic. Slightly tart, dryish grainy flavor, light saltiness. Dry wheat aftertaste with some lactic acid tartness and perryish notes. Light and refreshing texture, medium carbonation.

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 (8680) - 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.
