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.

ljthiessen (360) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden yellow pour with a small, quickly-dissipating white head. Sweet, slightly sour aromas of apple juice and light spices. Flavour is sweet light fruits with a sour and salty edge. Very refreshing and well balanced. Quite drinkable and definitely enjoyable, but nothing incredible.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
In short: A tart and moderately-salty wheat beer with a rural character. By-the-book Gose. Tasty and very refreshing.
How: Bottle 500ml, didn’t note the age of the bottle, many months old.
The look: Partly cloudy amber body topped by a medium off-white head that quickly recedes to a ring of foam that doesn’t leave lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is a bit minerals-salty, it also has a semi-wild lacto-ish farmhouse character, low-profile citrus fruits and bananas. In mouth the beer is more corpulent than you expect a 4.2% beer to be, abundant carbonation, a texture that is a bit on the juicy side, ok mouthfeel. Taste has nice semi-dry semi-toasted wheat with an overall crispiness. A assertive and very refreshing lemony-grapefruity tartness. Mild-medium acidity. It is salty but a bit less than average compared to the Goses I’ve had (but I haven’t had many). Other spicy notes of coriander and white-pepper can be found here and there. The beer is very refreshing but the tartness is commanding enough to prevent taking big sips. An underrated nice beer, but I’m not gonna lose sleep over how underrated this fine beer is, I have more important things to worry about, like staying awake all night wondering if the ice-cream I just ate will make me pee or poop.

bluejacket74 (1308) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head that didn’t stick around for too long. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like tart fruit (citrus, apple), wheat, peaches, and some salty herbalness. It tastes like lemon/lemon peel, wheat, earthy herbalness, salt, tart peaches, and tart apples. Moutfheel/body is light/medium, it’s tart and refreshing with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, good thing for me I bought 2 bottles! $5.79 a bottle.

Bottle. Hazy yellow color, medium lacing white foam. Aromas are lactic sourness with a hint of apple. Taste is nice sour, with a well balanced bitterness. Palate is fizzy, with a nice texture. Surprises with a nice malt aftertaste and a bit saltiness. Makes a round brew, nice one!

sebletitje (6646) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 50cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of Jef. Dorée trouble moyen, col blanc léger. Arôme est léger présentant un très beau bouquet minéral et salin typique de ce style accompagné de légères effluves acidulées et épicé de coriandre. Palais est léger, acidulé léger aussi, pointe amer houblonné, malt de blé rappelant une base de blanche, léger sour mash procurant une fine note acidulé en bouche, cela étant balancé avec le profil salé. Style unique, et encore une fois, proche de ce que l’on retrouve en Belgique.

77ships (3692) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
500 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to JefVerstraete! Clear golden, off-white head. Nose is this very German lactic sourness, makes me think of a Berliner Weisse, sour wheat, touch plastic, touch lemon / very sour green apple. Taste is lactic sour wheat, thinking Berliner Weiss once again, citrus, quite sour for the syle, green apple, touch sweeter grain. Lactic wheat body. feels very traditional, nice beer even if not entirely my personal preference.
