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.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
(500ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours very lightly hazed medium gold with tiny white head and no lace. Aroma of tart lemon, salt, apple cidery fruitiness, berry?, grainy wheat, coriander (leaves and seeds), slightly sour and with a subtle overripe fruit/barnyard character. Palate has tart green apple, lemon zest, lactic yoghurt notes, salt right from the start, and some wheat/pils type lightly sweet grainy malt. In the middle, coriander seeds give a light bitterness, salt fairly apparent, grains, a little lactic, lemon zest. Finish is semi dry with salty/lactic character clinging to the roof of the mouth, faint green apple, lightly mineral. Light, slightly watery body with above average carb. Not bad, has the characteristics of the style but doesn’t really hold a candle to some new world interpretations of the style in terms of complexity or depth of flavour.

HIGHB4LL (773) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: half finger white head that does not last, gold color, clear, Aroma: wheat, light grass, slight fruit. Palate: light body, average to lively carbonation, dry finish, sparkling texture. Taste: sweet wheat right into a decent yeasty fruity sweetness that is pleasant going into a slight tartness that just lasts for a second, dissipating into light grassiness. Overall, very good, super drinkable, very refreshing. Very enjoyable.

AirForceHops (3927) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Paid $6.49 for a 500ml bottle at 7-11 Kittery, ME. Aroma is sour wheat, coriander and sea salt. Carbonation is on the fizzy/ a bit too high side. Base is grain and wheat with tart lemon and a very mild salt. Salt almost not noticed. Very mild acidity. I wonder how this brew has changed over the years? Jeez, I really need to take a trip to Germany.

Senap (409) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2015
Väldigt speciell. Syrlig och faktiskt ganska frisk. Funkar nog bättre till mat än som sällskap.

axl (85) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
500ml bottle. Hazy golden with tiny head vanishing to leave no trace whatsoever. Fresh, slightly sour funky aroma dominated by salt and cilantro. Fresh, somewhat acidic taste with soft, fresh cilantro and some (rocky) saltiness. Light mouthfeel, light carbonation. Very refreshing.

Lawger (176) - SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015
Pours an almost clear medium gold with lager-like white head. Aroma of apple juice concentrate, some tart berries or fruits, malts and a hint of stable or barnyard. The palate is medium bodied with not much sticking out in any direction. There's a hint of saltiness, a hint of sweetness, a hint of acidity. It's all very mild and nothing is taking charge. The finish is medium-. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtles (99) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
500ml bottle. Hazy orange, small head of aggressive small bubbles. Sour aroma of yeast and white bread. Tastes eerily good, smooth lemon, green apple, pilsner malt, salt and funk. Long balanced finish. This is quality !!

UrbanCaveman (131) - Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2015
1 pint .9 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at about 45 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a clear deep burnished straw gold, like good natural apple cider, and forms a couple fingers of bright white head with good retention. There’s enough carbonation visible streaming through the glass to raise global mean temperature by .01 degree C. Smell: Pale biscuity malt meets sea salt air and mild musty mildew funk. Some hints of tart citrus waft through the aroma as well. Taste: The flavor profile opens with a rush of salt and funk, which fades to let biscuit and tart lemon-orange citrus through. There’s a faint touch of white grape and underripe green apple as well, and the finish leaves the citric tartness lingering beside the mildew funk and salt. Mouthfeel: Light and quite bubbly, this nails the "refreshing beer" feel. Overall: I can see why this is one of the beers generally recommended as a staple example of the style. This is a nice, well-executed gose, not too overdone on the salt or sour aspects, with a pleasant depth of character. Will repeat.
