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.

Lilja (1685) - 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.

gopherfan99 (496) - CROATIA - OCT 17, 2014
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.

@ SBWF 2014: spännande. Riktig sur samtidig som det fins salt och en trevlig beska. Gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Sample at McNulty’s Bier Markt on 9/13/14. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malty sweetness and not much else. Malty sweet flavor with lager yeast accents before a crisp and sorta salty finish.

Tap sample. Poured a hazy light pale color with an average white fizzy head that lasted with good lacing. Medium salt and sour fruits aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour fruit flavor with a sour finish of medium duration. Interesting brew.

AndyW68 (1108) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Perfectly clear orange gold pour with very short lived light airy white head. Mild sour aroma, like you just passed by someone eating sauerkraut. Taste follows nose with a little sweetness like a weak apple cider. Surprisingly enjoyable

Idiosynkrasie (3917) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
500ml bottle [a generous local-local trade add-on due to bartlebier’s bounteousness]. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sourish aroma has salty notes of Sauerkraut with a cathartic effect on the sinuses, hints of brine, a herbal touch of dill. Taste is slightly sourish with hints of Sauerkraut and mustard, subtle malt sweetness, a salty touch, brine, herbal hints of dill, gherkin; minimally biting, super-soft palate, very well balanced, primely refreshing. Excellent.
