Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting beer that was first brewed in 1824 – it’s the special beer of Leipzig! The Gose is an own, very old type of beer that does not correspond to the German purity law because Gose is much older than it. Even today, it is still brewed with an admixture of coriander and salt in the traditional way with a special yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by lactate fermentation during the maturing.

bartholos (113) - GERMANY - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. I had one each of the 2015 version and the ones before and they have noticeable differences in color, aroma and taste. I am reviewing the 2015er version here. Orange-yellow colored, cloudy and sparkling, with a small white frothy head. The characteristic sourness is directly welcoming the nose. Along with it, there are slight citrus and lemon notes, as well as grapes which reminds of champagne. The taste is heavily sour as well as light salty in the end and develops some acid. Flavor is also dominated by sourness and resembles with the fruity and citrus notes the flavors of lemon and champagne. The body is light to medium with strong carbonation. Leaves a sour aftertaste.

WillemsUrenkel (1011) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2015
0,5 l bottle, bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. Murky pale golden in the glass, mighty off white head. Musty sourish and salty on the nose. Taste starts very salty, than followed by a short grainy sequence. Later little bit citrus fruity, bready with salt. Nice on a very hot summer night like this, but not for every day.

danielecamo (845) - ITALY - JUL 3, 2015
In bottiglia. Aroma di cereale, speziato, coriandolo, sale. Al palato bevibilità estrema, scorre veloce e molto dissetante con sentori speziati di coriandolo, aciduli e salati, molto ben equilibrati. Ottima anche se l’unità di misure migliore sarebbe il litro.

Wischylini (194) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange, with a small white head. The aromas are oranges, lemons, and wheat. The taste is mildly sour, dry and moderately bitter, and ever so slightly salty, but only enough to actually give the beer a refreshing kick. The mouthfeel is light and effervescent, and the aftertaste is moderately long.
