COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermenting, sour and slightly salty tasting special beer of Leipzig. The Gose is an own, very old beer type and does not correspond to the German purity requirement. It is brewed traditionally with coriander and salt - thereby and by the additional lactic acid fermentation her quite special characteristic gets the Gose. It has certain resemblances to the Lichtenhainer beer as well as to the Belgian Geuze.

Hazy golden color. Catpee, lemon, very sour nose. The mouth is a bit subdued with more sourness and catpee, lemon and wood. A sour wood like finish is facinating. This is only my second beer from Leipzig and I am starting to like this style more and more.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2005
Tasted under the name of Ohne Bedenken Huge, near-explosive yellow, thick & collapsing head; leaving lace over funky orange-olive beer. At opening, very surprising Brett-like nose, horseblanket included, farmyard odours - very Saison Dupont-like, sulphuric, markedly citrussy aromas. Very good. Dry, wry, tart citric taste, halfway between lambic and saison, incomparable to the B. Bahnhof soup. Saltiness is virtually hidden, coriander blends in masterfully in the farmyard flavours. Further walnutpeel, mushrooms, coriander (indeed), lemon- and grapefruitpeel. Dry, near to dry-out effect, seems even tannine-like. Extremely refreshing, vying in this with Berliner Weisse. WOW! WOW! WOW! This is lightyears better than expected, and lightyears removed from the sad Bayerisches Bahnhof decoction. BIG thanks to Nat and Pivo, who supplied me with this rare beer, on which us Antwerpeners spoke 25 years ago in Kulminator, seriously questioning its existence. And one would nearly think the legend gueuze-Gose had something real after all...

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2005
Bottle. Better than Bayerischer Banhof! Beautiful soft, peppery/spicy mouthfeel. Some citrus, grapefruit characters, and also some grape seed. Wonderfully round, spicy palate. Slightly herbal/grassy characters aswell. This was simply amazing, and something i could drink all night. NIce slight refreshing sourness. Salty aswell.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2005
Orangecoloured beer with a nice head. Sour aroma, dominated by "salmiak", salt and yogurt. Again quite salty taste, sour, strange, different, don’t know sure If I really liked it, but sure worth a try.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - OCT 23, 2005
At the LCRBM (Kulminator Antwerp). Nice hazy blond-orange beer with fine airy off white head leaving a fine lacing. This beer has a very expressive nose, it is yeasty, malty, fresh cheesy has some hints of flowers and lactic youghurt accents. The taste is caracter full, it has a refreshing side of buttermilk, white cheese (platte cees), some slight sweet fruity accents and a soft watery texture of birtshwood juse. Fine refreshing bitterness in the finale with a minerale complex end. Thanks Yogi Beera for bringing this one.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005
No#24. One of the more exciting beers from the trip. An aroma of raw meet and smoked ham goes well with the salt in the aroma. The taste is similar my notes say : "I’m drinking a smoked ham with a dry finish!" . Take what you will from that.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2005
Bottle at RBG Low Countries 2005 tasting session - As "Ohne Bedenken"
Creamy, white head. Good lace. Hazy, orange body. Nose of flowers, grapefruit, sweat, soap. Lightly bitter, moderately acidic initial flavour. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter (long) finish. Lightly bodied. Lively carbonation. A very fruity white beer. Truely a very fine white beer and since I’m not very fund of whities, this must be very great. :-)

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2005
Bottled as Ohne Bedenken at LC-RBM. Aroma is very odd like my grandmothers kitchen with all kinds of spices. Hazy, dark yellow color, white head, fair lace. Sour, salty and malty but quite plain actually. I think I should rerate this one some time.

Now this is something special. Maybe you gotta be a gueuze or berliner weisse lover to appreciate it, but I love it. It's sweeter and less harsh than those styles. The aroma is very fruity with mainly lemon and wheat malts. Hazy, golden color, white rocky head, fair lace. Light and refreshing, sour but still maltsweet, fruity, salty but smooth. Short, little sour, little dry finish. Great beer!
