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.

Aroma is citrus and salt water. Pours a hazy golden color with thin white head. The taste is fairly sour with a mellow salty finish. Light bodied and very lively. I absolutely love this beer this is what the american knockoff goses should be compared to.

Draft at Tinder Box. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Nice saltiness on the nose. It’s fairly sour on the tongue which I quite like with a nite of saltiness. Finishes clean. I hope this style continues to thrive. It’s great in the summer.

Golden hazy, almost no head. Smell of fruity malts, hints of hops, some sea water and some tart fruits. Moderate sweet, some malts, some salty notes, some moderate sour acids, some fruityness. Moderate bitter finish. Quite refreshing. The sour and salty flavors really is something for the hot weather. I had it in the sun and it was a blast. Probably aquired taste; i didn’t like it all the first time i tried it.

Bottle from Ølhandleriet shared with Simonsen and Carsten
Golden, white head. Smells of grain, malts and wheat. Moderate salty, moderate sour, some grain, not very bitter. Can’t really enjoy this. I expected something exeptional, but this didn’t rock any pant

Pours to a beautiful, hazy deep golden color with a thick, bright white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic with lots of spicy coriander aromas, and citric/fruity aromas. The palate if round and fruity on the palate, with some good flavors of tart and quenching wheat malt, and more citric/lemon/fruity character. It finishes with more tart and quenching character up front, then ends with a very salty finish that lingers. This beer was so refreshing, delicious, unique, and impressive. It has much in common with a classic Belgian wit, more so than any German wheat beer, but is unlike any beer I have ever tasted. I was really surprised and pleased with the salty finish in this beer. It was kind of like a salt rimmed Margarita, you really get that salty flavor along with the citrus and spice. Incredible if you really analyze it.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 26.07.2013, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Big slightly bubbly longlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange, puffed rice, popcorn, sulfur, cereal, hay, salt. Taste is slightly sour-ish, light malts, sorrel, apple skin, grass, lemon, salt, grain, popcorn. Medium bitterness. If only the aroma had been a lot better, then this one would have been really nice.

Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. A Gose! In a Norwegian grocery store! Hell must be freezing over...so much fun! :-D Pours a clear deep golden body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts, sweet-fruity yeast tones and faint, yet perceivable notes of coriander and salt. Subtle and inviting. Taste is sour lactic grain notes, fresh leafy grass, pale malts and hints of citrus and salt. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Subtle in its composition, yet complex and utterly, surprisingly drinkable - this is German beer at its finest. I could really drink this all day long and wish more session beers were in this kinda neighborhood. Thanks to the fine fellas at Beer Enthusiast for bringing this gem (and the otherwise hyper-obscure genre) to Norway - chin chin! :-)
