COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting beer that was first brewed in 1824 – it’s the special beer of Leipzig! The Gose is an own, very old type of beer that does not correspond to the German purity law because Gose is much older than it. Even today, it is still brewed with an admixture of coriander and salt in the traditional way with a special yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by lactate fermentation during the maturing.

Brewed by Hartmansdorf until 2014, brewed by Reichenbrand in Chemnitz from 2015

thellgren (406) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2015
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Cloudy yellow colour, decent head. This is a sour beer with lots of citrus and herbs, something like a sour Belgian witbier. There is also some salt in it. The taste is not quite like any other beer. Very good if you are thirsty, except it might make you even more thirsty. Nice to have this style alive and available even outside Leipzig.

ContemplateBeer (1681) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma: Tart, lemony notes; mild saline component; a touch of hay. Appearance: Rich yellow with a skin of white head. Flavor: Hay up front with a touch of salt, followed by a growing tart lemon presence; the finish is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Liked this pretty well; seems fairly legit in terms of faithfulness to the style.

Bottle. Big ivory head. Misty yellow. Fresh, hoppy and fruity aroma. Extremely tasty and drinkable. Malts, spicies, strawberry, coriander, sour and salty. Lovely! Would be nice companion for white fish or shrimps.

metalspice (241) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2015
Gult mot fersken, uklart. Litt surt i duften sammen med noe frukt og hint av skalldyr. Sur smak med noe gress. Salt i ettersmaken som fremstår noe tørr.

Zymurgeist2 (1234) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 1, 2015
On tap at Gourmet Haus in Redwood City. Pours a very slightly haze pale yellow with full white head. Aroma is lemon and salt, and flavor profiles follows this with a nice tartness that is driven more by the lemon than the salt. A moderate sourness from the lactic is restrained. Very pleasurable.

Bottle from Little’s. It occurred to me when I saw this bottle that I’ve never had an authentic German gose. I was curious how the Americans’ interpretations fared. Seems like we have been pretty faithful. This cloudy, light beer has a wonderfully briny aroma with tart lemon notes and tasteful coriander spice. The salt is dead on in the flavor. It gives it the right amount of savoriness. Good, solid tartness keeps me wanting another sip. It’s refreshing, dry and incredibly balanced. I could crush a few of these on a summer day.
