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.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - AUG 18, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Bevuta alla spina nella piazza centrale di Lipsia, in un bar/ristorante con i tendoni della Franziskaner. Che dire, magari la vera Gose è così, ma non mi è piaciuta tanto; coriandolo zero, estremamente acida e salata, ho fatto fatica a buttarne giù mezzo litro. SECONDO ASSAGGIO - ribevuta all’O Connor l’ho apprezzata molto di più: lievito pulitissimo, acido che pizzica la lingua, salato molto meno, coriandolo pochissimo. saranno cambiate le mie percezioni ma stavolta l’ho apprezzata molto di più.

I was so happy to see this bottle, I never thought I would get to try this but Matt pulled it out of nowhere. Pours is a clear golden color with a small head that fades at an average rate. The beer has a lightly sticky lacing. Aroma is weird creamy-lager (interesting, not sure what is going on, maybe its old). The creaminess is akin to vanilla but still lagered. Flavor is actually lightly lacto or just some bugginess to it. its tangy and light and I think just a little bit of salt. The beer goes on to dry out super nicely. As it sits and warms the tart aspect appears in the aroma as well. There is a faint corn aspect to it. Light and easy drinking despite the weird creamy aspect. Thanks again Matt.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2010
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma reminds me at some wood, with fruits with malts. The taste is malty, dry with fruits like citrus. Hints of sour. The aftertaste is some bitter with sweet and a little sour.

Nickls (2000) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle shared by maxxdaddy) Light clear yellow color; poured with pretty thin white head. Olives, lemon, citrus; overall fairly mild but pleasant aromas. Taste very much mirrors the aroma; salty; olives; lemony; very savory. Lightish; tight bubbly carbonation. Decent drinking, but I don’t think I could do too much of this brew at a time, but nice and interesting

Tap @ Festival der Bierkulturen. Golden copper pour with amber highlites. Citric fruits on the nose, some barely, and sugar. Sour citrus, grapefruit, green apple, sour-candy, wheat, a few herbs like eucalyptus, and something sort of off. Maybe sea-water. Was ok.

rosenbergh (8664) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2010
500 ml bottle. 4.2%. From Germany (bierkompass.de).
Hazy orange colour with small white head. Really interesting aroma of mild spices, some sourness, smoke, paper and salt. Flavour is very sour with some spices, fruits (mainly citrus) and salt. This is quite unique flavour. Aftertaste is somewhat smoky.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2010
0.5 l bottle thanks to my parents, who brought it from Leipzig. It poured hazy orange body with bigger head. Fine spicy aroma, coriander, sourish but still cloying in yeasty way. Very fine sour flavor, nicely spiced with coriander again dominating the most, slightly salty as well, although not as much as I’ve expected, comparing to some beers I’ve tried where salt wasn’t a stated ingredient. Nicely balanced and rounded with medium to full body, especially if you consider its low alcohol content. Finish was very nice sour and even slightly sweetish near the very end. As it’s the case with most of sour ales which are not extremely sour, I like it quite much. Definitely a nice experience to try this rare style!

mattiapp (10) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 8, 2010
Bottiglia 50cl. Birra "al sale" tipica della Germania del nord. All’inizio leggermente "acida" e molto gasata, subito il sapore e la carbonazione si appianano per finire gradualmente ma abbastanza in fretta con un sapore di secco che ricorda appunto il salato. Colore giallo intenso, non corposissima. Buona la schiuma anche se non troppo persistente. In complesso, una buona birra, piacevole e non stucchevole.

theisti (3496) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 6, 2010
.5 liter bottle shared by mreusch. 07.2010 stamped on the label. Pour is a mostly clear golden copper with a small white head that falls quick. Aroma starts off with bathroom cleanser, along with a mild sweetness (powder vanilla), and some citrus fruit behind that. Kind of a weird nose. Taste is initially quite sour citrus, citric wheat, with some of the yeastiness of the nose and finishing with a healthy dose salt. The taste is bright, and integrates nicely - unique and very different. As this opened, the flavors really came together. Palate is medium bodied, soft, lightly carbonated, dry salty finish. Real interesting, thanks for sharing Matt.

500ml bottle with thanks to kappldav123 for the nice bonus! Pours a clear medium golden with a minimal white head and light lacing. Aroma is a floral, lemon, and a little distracting bathroom cleaner, artificial aroma as well. Flavor is pretty nice, with some salty notes, citrus, lemon, and a lot of harder to describe stuff. Overall this is very unique and quite interesting. The nose is not a hit but the flavor was quite unique and enjoyable. Thanks again David!
