COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gose is an oddball style of North German ale that is sort of a cross between a Belgian Wit and a Berliner Weisse. It’s brewed with 1/2 wheat malt, spiced with coriander. The fermentation is via ale yeast spiked with lactobacillus, so the beer has a definite tartness to it. Lastly, an addition of sea salt gives it a nice roundness and an interesting if slight saltiness.

2 oz. or smaller pour, on tap at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Consumed on 6-7-14. Pours a cloudy, pale tan with beige head. Appealing, creamy aroma features a peach scent. Creamy, salty, lemony flavor. Woody, dusty, pretzel-like aftertaste. Light body. Insubstantial in the palate. This is an interesting beer, weird but not unpleasant.

Tap @ Herkimer. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Big coriander, spicy citrusy yeasty, wheat aroma. Somewhat salty, dry wheat malty, very spicy, coriander, refreshing flavor. Kick ass.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Herkimer. Hazy yellow-gold pour. Coriander, wheat, and clove on the aroma and taste. Solid.

Atom (1443) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2011
On tap pours cloudy yellow with creamy white head. Aroma has a almost cream like quality with Belgian spice, coriander, lemon, wheat, with a slight tartness. Taste is heavy on the Belgian spice and coriander, plenty of wheat, with hints of tartness coming through. Texture is very heavy and creamy. Although very interesting, this beer ended up being a nightmare for me as a person not a fan of Belgian Wits or anything spiced with coriander. However if Wit beers are your thing this should be right up your alley.

Sampled at ABR 2009. First Gose Iíve tried. I like these sour beers that are balanced with sweetness. This beer fits that mold. Other than the hefeweizen and kellerbier, I havenít been too impressed with Herkimer. However, this beer is good. Cheers!

I am not sure there should be any Belgian character, but it is a good, unusual beer anyway. Lots of salt and wheat. Some citrus. Well carbonated. Refreshing. This is the Herkís best beer.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Cloudy pale yellow color with a medium head. Aroma of coriander and lime. Lemony wheat flavor, light tartness, and a dry slightly salty finish. Iím not sure if the Berliner Weisse part is traditional for Gose, but in any case, itís a tasty beer!

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2009
A cloudy yellow beer with a holding white head, good lacing. Weak aroma of wheat malt and salt. Like its not obvious the salt they add to these gose beers. Flavor starts off sweet, quickly turns to bitter paper-like taste and finishes with sea salt, alas, the best part. Word. Reminds me of bbq sauce and the ocean. Maybe its the sweet skunkiness of the brewery... ewwwwww!

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2009
On draught at the Herkimer brewpub in uptown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a hazy straw/lemonade colored brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates to a thin white ring and some nice lacing. Aroma of lemonade, coriander, a touch of white bread and some lemon zest. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of multi-grain malt with wheat, coriander, some hint of banana esters, and tart lemonade. Finish is semi-sweet with a slow disappearing coriander and lemon aftertaste.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2008
GABF 2008. Pale gold, cloudy body with a fizzy head of white. Notes of herbal coriander, lemon wheat, and a milky lactic acidity. Light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a somewhat soft, chewy texture. Creamy wheat flavors up front on the palate, followed by a pleasant herbal spiciness. Light to moderate wheat and lactic acidity with a cleansing lemon quality. Lightly salted in the finish, which lingers satisfyingly with more coriander spice. Rich, yet delicate - a terrific gose.
