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.

ON DRAFT. Slightly cloudy yellow orange pour. Aroma of grapes, honey, sweet barley. Tastes sour grapefruit grapes, with a wheaty finish. Slight brine. Crisp acidic palate. More smooth and sessionable than the average gose.

Holmen1 (2376) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Flaske fra Matkroken Stokka: fint hvitt skum som forsvinner raskt. Tydelig aroma av surhet (melkesyrebakteriene), salt og koriander - en interessant kombinasjon som også kommer frem i smaken. En særegen stilart, meget forfriskende etter å ha klippet plenen på fellesområdet. Frister absolutt til gjentagelse.

Moravius (451) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Ein kleines Experiment: eine Flasche (50 cl) des Jahrgangs 2011 mit MHD 8/2013, etwa 2 Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Dunkles Goldgelb, nur noch wenig trüb (da die Hefe sich am Flaschenboden abgesetzt hat). - Intensiv fruchtig-säuerliche Nase wie von gutem Cidre, vielleicht mit einem Hauch von Sauerkraut (gutes Sauerkraut, nicht das billige aus der Dose). - Im Antrunk deutliche aber fruchtig-milde Säure wie von sauren Äpfeln. Herb und spritzig. Mild rezent, frisch. Trockener Abgang; leicht herber, fruchtig-säuerlicher Nachtrunk. Keine Spur von Hopfenbittere, auch Koriander und Salz sind nicht mehr zu erschmecken. Enorm erfrischend und durststillend. - Durch die lange Lagerung ist die Gose milder geworden, säuerliche Fruchtaromen dominieren. Das Ergebnis erinnert sehr an einen trockenen Apfelwein. Das überraschende Fazit: Ritterguts Gose ist lagerfähig, aber das Ergebnis schmeckt eher nach Apfelwein als nach Bier ...

Leicht trübes orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Kraut, Gewürze, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Sourish/tart, yeasty, lactic, lemon juice, coriander, salty. Light body. Interesting and quite refreshing, but one bottle at a time is enough for me.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of malted wheat, salt water, and lemon. An unusual juxtaposition of acidic lemon and salt in the mouth. Perhaps a bit of earthy or peppery notes mixed in too, along with a definite malted wheat note that lingers on the palate. I wasn’t sure if I liked it at first, but it seems to be growing on me. Glad I finally got to try it.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 30, 2014
Bottle at Beergeek courtesy of Jirka. Poours hazy Orange with a beige head. Unusual mix of malt and citrus. Slightly tangy acidity. A very peculiar mix. The salty component is strangely refreshing and works well.

Bottle as shown thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy gold with no head. The aroma is coriander, citrus, and salt. Thin mouthfeel with nice citrus, light salt, tart finish. Very good.
