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.

Unde (857) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Golden yellow to orange beer with small bubbly head that went away in seconds. Aroma has sourness, but not apples (although this resembles a lot of dry cider in a way) more like some berry or something else. Taste is first sour, then a bit salty and ending with nice combination of both. Some fruit notes are there but they’re not that distinguishable. Light body and low carbonation, it’s almost like some sour juice. Not bad but strangely different.

Lele (403) - 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!
