@ Sergio’s / Louisville (including authentic glassware) - Slightly hazy old gold with a solid head cover, blobs of lace. Taste is full of sour malt that moves smartly through the palate to a tart, cleansing finish. Excellent gose, terrific thirst quencher, great with food, well worth seeking out.

La prima gose che ho assaggiato e che mi rimarrà sempre nel cuore. Fa mostra di un’acidità molto meno intensa del lambic, ma più soffusa e delicata, arricchita con note salate e leggermente acetiche e vinose (vino bianco, ovviamente). Sublime interpretazione di un grande stile tutto tedesco!!

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with an airy head. Aroma is sour and funky with very light woody notes and some whiffs of salt. Surprisingly full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is tart with notes of wood and white wine, as well as grapes. Sour finish.

500ml bottle pours hazy toasted orange with little head. Nose is tart clementine and lemon, cereal. Taste is tart fruity lemon, citrus, orange, cereal, grain. Finish is cereal malt and tart lemon, salty notes, lasting lacto tartness. Very good.

Had on tap in Leipzig, Germany at the Biergarten where it’s served. Was going to the brewery, but they don’t have a tasting room/garten.
A: Golden ale with a single finger of fine and near whipped quality foam of whiteness which falls over several minutes to a sheet of the same. Spotty and loose lacing. Hazy, as expected.
S: Bread, a little intense in the nose than anticipated. Pretty empty, but when smelled, reminiscent of a fresh ocean breeze (salinity is evident). Warming and earthy, the nose is really nice when I get it (but I’m surrounded by about five burning cigarettes, so I can’t take away much on the points here).
T: Nicely tart, woody, earthy and yeasty. The earthiness is of sand and wheat and salt. This is fun, and I think better than Bayischer Banhof’s version at the other end of town. A little more tart, a little better on the salt approach (these guys add salt after boil vs. Bayerschif who adds during boil).
M: Thin with fine and ticklish carbonation. Finish is a bit warm, very surprised in this given the lower ABV. Dry finish as well.
O: Good. The only thing missing here is a hint of coriander to help fully round this one out. I think a blend of the two Gose’s from the region would be a good drink. This one is preferred though.
Serving type: on-tap

Meine absolute Lieblings-Gose. Besser etwas kälter als normal und frisch vom Fass (ich konnte den Geschmack noch nie aus der Flasche perfektionieren). Tolle, frische Zitrusaromen, sanfter, sauerer Geschmack mit leichten Gewürz- und Salznoten. Fühlt sich am Gaumen wunderbar an. Schmeckt natürlich am besten in der Gosenschenke, Menckestraße, Leipzig.

Lightly orange pour with a small white head. Nose is slightly funky, musty, basement, lemons, lactic tartness. Flavor is evidently salty, tart, lemons, light malt richness, and a touch of funky complexity. Citrusy. Interesting but I’m not sure this is my favorite style.

Bottle share...thanks Dan! Poured into snifters at home. Looks like a pilsner pour with golden colors and a think white head. Some lacing. Aroma of sour funk, yeasts and some cereal. Tastes of mostly sour apples and pears with a salty finish. Also you get a cereal/bread body with a grain finish. I’m not huge into this style but I enjoyed this quite a bit.
