Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting ale that was first brewed in 1824. It is the beer specialty of Leipzig and the oldest still existing Gose brand in the world. Gose is an own, ancient 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 the special historic Gose yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by the additional lactate fermentation.

Lele (382) - Padova, ITALY - APR 11, 2016
Gosa molto buona e dissetante, salata al punto giusto. Al naso e in bocca si avvertono anche abbondanti sentori citrici, aciduli, che ricordano i lambic. Leggermente fruttata.

The balance between the lactate, coriander and salt is perfect. But it is not as sour as the American versions that I love!

eaglefan538 (3019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Pour was a hazy to cloudy deep orange gold with near nil head and lacing. Aroma of hay, citrus, earth, herbs. Flavor of the same, faint spicing, faint sour apples, wood, lemons, some cheese, some salt. Mouthfeel moderate carbonation, decent body for style, acidic. Pretty tasty and refreshing.

Pours clear golden with almost no head. Aromas of farmhouse, minerals, musk, rye bread. Taste is very earthy with mineral saltiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation.

Beerman6686 (6169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Poured a golden to orange color with a white head. Aroma was of sea water, pale grain, yeast. Flavor similar, not as tart as American versions, but nice to taste a traditional one.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle. Oh my, something went clearly wrong with this one. Lots of white, ugly floaties, almost no head. Smells like cheese-flavoured corn crisps, subtle lactic notes, minor malt and that’s it. It was hard to convince myself to even try it after the aroma turned out to be an abomination. Salty-sour flavour, light malty, minor fruit notes (apples, pears), coriander very much in the background. Again a prevalence of cheese notes, this time in the flavour. The worst gose I’ve tried by far and possibly the biggest disappointment in terms of beer that I’ve had.

nuplastikk (5692) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2016
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy yellow-tan body. Not much of a head. Artificial almost lemon-lime aroma. I get real big lemon notes, lemonade. Salty and dry too. Pretty big sour tones,, but real soft/absent malt backbone. Sort of one-dimensional, but a welcome variation from most US examples for my palate. Good.

0,5l Flasche. Trübes Gelb, wenig Schaum. Saurer fruchtiger Duft. Der erste Schluck ist sehr salzig. Der zweite wird schon angenehmer. Saurer Mittelteil, im Abgang ein etwas unrunder metallischer Fehlton,
