COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

dambor (127) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 16, 2015
Pours light orange with almost no head. Aroma: kind of "wild" elements coupled with sea salt, with some malty peach aroma in the background. Taste: salty and bitter taste followed by a smooth, little salty finish. Pretty high carbonation. It is my first gose. Interesting.

phaleslu (7185) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2015
500 ml bottle at Neons. Pours a barely cloudy gold on the lighter end of the spectrum with a small, wispy white film and tiny ring. Notes of lemon and lime citrus, sea salt, coriander, grass, straw, and a doughy, yeasty character throughout. Light-bodied, with a tart, dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Clean, and not bad.

TET (1939) - FINLAND - APR 4, 2015
A light yellow beer with a big and white head. Aroma has lemon, lactic acid, salt. Totally fresh. Taste has sourness, wheat, lemon, salt and freshness. Almost medium bodied, slipperyr to drink. Good beer and the lactic acid is combined naturally to the other flavours. Very refreshning.

RexTalionis (2932) - FINLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Hazy pale golden, foamy white head. Rubbery and muted citrus with salty seawatered hay in aroma. Citrus, slightly salty and sweet vibes in taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Some wheaty notes as well. The drinkability is really good here, this is something one could consume much of, especially during the summer time. Light spicyness towards the end.

neongolden (700) - 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.
