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

Very nice and very special summer beer. More sour than salty, actually, but not too much. Aroma: gentle, reminds of lilac flowers, green apple, pineapple and honey. Taste: sour, a bit salty, green apple in the aftertaste. Works well with salads.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle... Pours cloudy and amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The restrained nose is grainy and a touch herbal. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is tart and quite salty accompanied by a slightly bready sweetness. Tangy, salty finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

thellgren (463) - 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 (1754) - 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.
