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.

Moebbels (517) - FINLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Pours an ever so slightly hazy light yellow body with a white head that settles quickly without leaving trace. Nose is mild with notes of funky yeast, wheat, coriander and salt spray. The taste is quite interesting with a mix of sour berries, saltiness like that found in soy sauce and a mild bitter finish that doesn’t last at all. Medium creamy carbonation and oddly filling palate. This is unlike any beer I ever tried and I expected it to be quite awful. This is oddly nice, though.

Bottle shared and split. Poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has wheaty, bready notes throughout and a touch of acidity. The taste carries that wheaty note through and then at the finish the acidity and salt come through nicely. Medium body and medium carbonation. Very nice beer.

At the magic tree. Not sure what happened with this draft. As below, was expecting a somewhat salty thinner beer but this was not like any gose I ever had in the states. A little sticky and viscous from the start. Could not detect any salt or tartness what so ever. Odd, seems like a mildly hopped apa. Quite disappointing for this style. Will have to try it again if I ever see it again.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo jasne klarowne z poczatku, potem lekko zmetnione. Zapach stechlizny, mokrej scierki, ale fajne to aromaty no i troche kwiatow lakowych, tak mi sie kojarzy. Smak zupelnie inne i niestandardowe gose, ciut soli sporo przyjemnej kwaskowosci, kapusty kwaszonej jakby:) pszeniczne zbozowe ziarno takze wyczuwalne. Bardzo smaczne lekkie piwo doskonale i podkreslajace syty posilek. Ciekawa i historyczna etykieta. Polecam.

Bottle. Orangey-gold slight haze, decent head, nose is unremarkable, mouth is a well balanced mix of malt, cider apples, hay, toasted pecan, tartness and salt. Refreshing and very tasty. Prost!

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2015 Very nice and very special summer beer. More sour than salty, actually, but not too much. Aroma: gentle, reminds of lilac flowers, green apple, pineapple and honey. Taste: sour, a bit salty, green apple in the finish. Works well with salads.

Scopey (9777) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Keg at BD Helsinki. It pours cloudy gold with a tiny white head. The nose is soft, creamy, sour yoghurt, grainy, cracker, funk, hay and barnyard. The taste is crisp, mellow sourness, some acidity, creamy, natural yoghurt, cottage cheese, doughy, lactic twang, grainy and sherbet with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Nice classic gose action.

Bottle... Pours cloudy and amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The restrained nose is grainy and a touch herbal. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is tart and quite salty accompanied by a slightly bready sweetness. Tangy, salty finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
