COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting ale that was first brewed in 1824. It is the beer specialty of Leipzig and the oldest still existing Gose brand in the world. Gose is an own, ancient style of beer that does not correspond to the German purity law. Even today, it is still brewed with an admixture of coriander and salt in the traditional way with the special historic Gose yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by the additional lactate fermentation.
World Beer Awards London: World’s Best Gose 2013, Europe’s Best Gose 2014, World Beer Idol 2016: Gose Gold, World Beer Cup 2016: Bronze Medal
Brewed by Hartmannsdorf until 2014 (until 2007 @3.9%), brewed by Reichenbrand in Chemnitz from 2015.

JDBaker11058 (1915) - Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Appearance: deeper gold than I expected, largely clear, short and quickly vanishing near-white head. Aroma: typical gose aroma of green apples, lemon zest, cracked wheat, light white wine vinegar, and coriander--that is to say, very enticing. Taste: again, pretty typical gose characteristics, with maybe a bit more salt than usual. Finish: pleasant rush of activated glands at the jawline, lingering lacto tartness over some salt and crackers. Notes: Perfect example of one of my new favorite styles. Where have you been all my life? Bottle from Knightly Spirits, Orlando, Florida.

Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Slightly cloudy straw color with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of lemons, yeast and herbal wheat. The finish is mildly tart with a citrusy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
On tap at Les Vignerons. Didn’t bother to review it properly, but I did like it, a lot. So refreshing and juicy, properly dry and crisp. Not as salty as other goses, but spot on. Moderately acidic/tart. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Solid.
