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.

Tap at Angels Trumpet. The old me would not seek out flights of low alcohol brew but here i am being semi-responsible at least on first flight. Pours cloudy orange and is darker than i was expecting. nose is lemony lactic fun. tastes of bread, yeast, salty, light coriander, earth, and some citrus. interesting drinkable brew that finishes slightly sour

marcus (6359) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours clear copper with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is an acidic fruit flavor that does taste a bit like gueuze, but not as fruity. Leaves salt on the palate.

Sampled in a big bottle. Was recommended as it was an original version of a sour. Really enjoyed this beer which was refreshing and citrus base. Very nice brew. Would certainly try to find again.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. I had never heard of this before, but decided to give it a try. It wasn’t as sour as I was expecting...a little bit of fruit flavor in it, maybe some peach or sweet citrus. Had a little bit of sour bite in the finish, but nothing overpowering. Would be a decent intro to more-sour beers for a newer beer aficionado (this is a compliment, not a detraction).

Pour a pale orange. Quite cloudy, though that’s not exactly a surprise after following the label’s advice to stir up the yeast before pouring. Foamy white head. Decent retention. Lemony lactic-forward aroma. Some coriander and brine. Some nice fruity malt flavors in the background - apricot and blackberry. Taste is lactic tart with some nice spice and fruit flavors and a salty undercurrent. It’s quite yogurty lactic. Like unsweetened yogurt mixed with lemon rind. Little to no malt sweetness and absolutely no hop character. Light to medium mouthfeel. There’s a little body to the beer, but it’s pretty crisp. The lack of malt sweetness makes the beer feel quite clean. Fun beer. Always nice to find a gose. This would be a fun beer to pair with food.

Ratman197 (9536) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2013
500 ml bottle shared by Doodler (trhanks Scott!) poured a clear orange amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of wheat, salt, yeast, light coriander and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, bread, yeast, salt, light coriander and a hint of citrus with a smooth dry lingering salty bread finish.

joeneugs (3119) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bottle. It pours a nice golden color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is fresh wheat, hint of lemon and coriander, clove. Bready maltiness. Almost like a hefeweizen with a touch more lemon. The flavor has a pleasant, easy tartness nicely balanced with good fresh wheat. Apricots, lemon with only a hint of lactic acid near the finish. Not much spice or funk coming through. Very light bodied. Pretty nice, easy drinker but too expensive to enjoy in large quantity.

BeerIconoclast (1) - Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2013 does not count
Delightful and unique. Lager-y aroma, Berliner Weiss sourness combines with a barely perceptible saltiness for a clean finish leaving you wanting more. An indication of the need for a revival of Gosebier, a lot of folks would like this.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 16, 2013
17/03/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Dorata, pallida, limpida, schiuma abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori lattici molto evidenti, malto, leggera luppolatura, terrosa ed erbacea. In bocca è acidula, con note di malto e citriche, sapida nel finale. Corpo leggero, carbonazione corretta, consistenza oleosa. Molto buona, ma forse non così beverina come la Bayerischer Bahnhof.

lachrymalisis (382) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
classic example of the style. starts very clean, slightly tart, salt adds a barely perceptible salinity, and there’s a touch of funky grain mustiness in the finish. bit of a creamy mouthfeel.
