COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional German beer style that was all but extinct 30 years ago. An amazingly refreshing beer brewed with coriander and sea salt. The tart, dry finish combined with the hint of salt and citrus leaves your palate craving another sip.

There are those who say ďIf youíve had one gose, youíre had them all.Ē I understand that line of thinking, but I do not completely agree with it. While most of the gose beers Iíve tried have been quite similar, I can differentiate between them. Lost Nation Gose is neither the worst nor the best brew of the style Iíve had Ė itís right there in the middle, for thatís worth.

I poured a 16oz can into a tulip glass. It was canned on 8/17/15 and cost $2.65 ($0.17 per ounce). Thanks to Jon H. for the can!

Appearance: Pale whitish yellow. Extremely hazy with no visible carbonation. Initially pours to a large, brilliant white foamy head, though it eventually dissipates completely and leaves no lacing.

Smell: A mild lemonade-like scent of citrus and tartness. Wheat is noticeable, too.

Taste: When drinking a gose, I notice that the beer tastes different at the end than it does from the beginning. At first, this beer it quite tart and salty, but after a few swigs, both of those qualities seem to diminish. Lightly salty up front with some lemon peel flavor underneath. Thereís a general wheaty flavor to the body, which is nice as itís not distracting. As it crests thereís a mild lacto tartness which lingers momentarily as it goes down. The coriander and salt are noticeable in the aftertaste, but fade quickly.

Drinkability: A beer like this should be refreshing on a hot summerís day and thatís exactly how I drank it. The mouthfeel is noticeably thin and crisp, but does not feel paper thin. It becomes a little flat after about halfway through. At 4.5% ABV, Lost Nation Gose is arguably sessionable, though I think one pint can would satisfy me. Itís definitely refreshing.

RATING: 7/10

Hazy straw yellow body with a bone white head that fades to nil immediately. Aromas of salt, coriander, malt. Light in body and easy drinking. Prominent salt throughout with notes of lemon. Tasty.

16oz can-Thanks Kirk. Cloudy straw hue, low foam. Had this before & this vintage/in the can was not as good as the earlier bottled versions.

On tap. Golden hazy with a white head. Salty and refreshing without being overwhelming, wheat, macintosh apple with some granny smith skin, dry and tasty, somewhat tart, moderate carbonation and mild body. Liked the mild salt compared to some salt bombs I have had in the past - to each their own I guess.

Hazy pale golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, some grains, light citrus. Taste of salt, wheat, light citrus, salt, fruity.

JulienHuxley (4319) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Pint can. Cloudy almost milky yellow-white pour with thin creamy white head. Aroma is nice, soft bready grainy notes, light lemon zest, just a hint of lactic acid. Taste is lightly salty, definitely present but not overpowering, light fresh zesty acidity. Palate is quite silky, presumably just drinking the haze because it the body is otherwise a tad watery, very light. Easy drinking, well balanced and not at all unpleasant on a hot summers day.

From the 16 oz. can dated 05/23/2015. Murky yellow pour with a quick lasting head. Funky yeast ad toasted malts on the nose. Light body. Waaaay too salty on the taste but they announced it was brewed with sea salt. Mild grassy hop finish. It didnít do much for me

Decent Gose. Good amount of tartness, decent bit of salt, super crisp and refreshing. Crazy cloudy pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
