3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to the Doppelbock for this bottle. A moderate sour and yeasty smell, light cheese, light white wine. Overall a refreshing smell. A small white fizzy head, rather fast disappearing. A clear yellow-orange body. Heavy acidic start, the finish is rather soft with a average duration. Light to medium body, dry and a little bit watery texture,rather lively carbonation.Nice Gose.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Virtually no head. Golden colored, low carbonated body. Crisp and spicy wheat aroma. A faint whiff of honey. Clean and dry tasting. Spicy and light sour with salty tones. Tart fruitiness underneath. Very unusual, very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle thanks to omhper) Pours hazy yellow to light golden with a small head. The aroma is light acidic (lemon, lime and soap), dust, salt, straw-ish malt and light grassy hops with undertones of fruit candy and vegetables. The flavour is medium to full sour/acidic, light malty and light hoppy with tones of lemon, lime, cracker toast and salt. The mouthfeel is tight and dry with a light to medium carbonation. Light bodied. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle kindly supplied by Doppelbock.
Golden, slowly rising big bubbles.
Stable aroma, some spices.
Salty flavour, quite fruity, like a Kölsch that has taken off. Yeasty residue, a hint of vinegar. Interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at weird potato restauraunt in Leipzig. Aroma begins slightly sweaty and spitty amid the sourness, very biological taste, seems sour dry thin at first. Cloudy blonde, very llittle head, tanky flavors. Then halfway into glass emerge finishing flourishes of sour strawberry almost like rhubarb. Astonishingly different beer. Challenging and good. Seek this out wherever you may in this area.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(6/22/08) Draught at Ohne Bedenken in Leipzig. Hazy golden with a big white head with slowly-bursting bubbles. Aroma of wheat and some coriander and citrus. Sourish flavor with wheat, some lemon, coriander and light saltiness. Medium-bodied and a very rounded mouthfeel. Very good and refreshing but I would prefer a Berliner Weisse over this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 50 cL bottle, trade with kappldav123. Pours hazy orange with a slowly collapsing and white head. Mild citrus fruity aroma, mild infection perhaps? Flavour is mild milky, slight metallic and citric. Orange fruity mixed with salt. Ends citric and mild salty - quie tasty and worth some time.
RBESG2008: as Ohne Bedenken Originale Gose. Mild cornish aroma mild spiced. Salty flavour with a mild cornish note. Quite unique and tastes like saltwater mixed with a slight milky touch. Ends light acidic and cornish yet with a distinct salty sticking taste.6-3-6-3-13=13

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
Pours pale golden with a small, creamy film head. Aroma is light, rather malty with some honey and citric notes. Fin carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour though, is not as impressive, lightly sour, salty and with a good citric tartness in the end.

0.5l bottle like on the picture, courtesy of heavy whose parents got it in Leipzig and who shared it with me (thanks!)
Poured a hazy pale orange body with a thick white head, relatively big and lasting, nice! Dry odd perfumey nose, notes of propolis but somehow soft. Salty, light acidic taste carrying some soft sweetness too. Nice dusty spice, light yeasty egginess. As I said in the earlier rating odd, but great that it’s so drinkable despite everything. 7/3/7/3/13Old rating:

Gotta love the bottle (thanks DSG!). I finally get to try this elusive style. Poured a hazy golden body. Herbal, honeyish nose. Salty, somewhat sourish yeasty and spicy taste. Odd and yet great in a way. 8/3/7/4/15
