Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting beer that was first brewed in 1824 – it’s the beer specialty of Leipzig. Gose is an own, very old 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 a special old Gose yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by the additional lactate fermentation.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Sourish/tart, yeasty, lactic, lemon juice, coriander, salty. Light body. Interesting and quite refreshing, but one bottle at a time is enough for me.

piscator34 (2269) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of malted wheat, salt water, and lemon. An unusual juxtaposition of acidic lemon and salt in the mouth. Perhaps a bit of earthy or peppery notes mixed in too, along with a definite malted wheat note that lingers on the palate. I wasn’t sure if I liked it at first, but it seems to be growing on me. Glad I finally got to try it.

TheCametron (2285) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 30, 2014
Bottle at Beergeek courtesy of Jirka. Poours hazy Orange with a beige head. Unusual mix of malt and citrus. Slightly tangy acidity. A very peculiar mix. The salty component is strangely refreshing and works well.

kdhittel (82) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2014
On draft at Paradiso Dupont in DC. A nice Gose, very clean and crisp and a pop of lemony citrus. Salt does not come through as much as I would like, but some nice malt notes in the back of the palette.

Les notes salines sont devancés seulement par des pointes florales et boisés, comme un spectre de coriandre enfoui sous un tas de blé cru.
