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.

pinkish-orangish-amber. White head, fades very quickly to nothing. Smells like a light lager: a slightly tart hay and grass. Body is watery with a touch of syrup, light, semi-fine carbonation with a moderate burn. Flavor is tart lactic and wheat grain. Finish a tartness bordering on reminiscent of pickles. An OK Gose, a bit too tart for me.

4.2% on tap at Luppulo 12. My first German Gose a lovely cloudy honey gold with a foamy white head. A sour salty funky nose. Light bodied but wow what flavor! Salt, yoghurt, tart, lactic, wheat, think an amped up salty sour Yakult. Great. The nose is so so but the taste is phenomenal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I first tasted this beer 7-8 years ago at the Berlin beer festival. I thought it was a very nice beer and quite enjoyed it. Unfortunately, Ritterguts has changed its contract brewer and the recipe. The beer is quite simply no longer a Gose. It may come close to a Berliner Weiße, but it lacks both the salt and coriander that are characteristic of a Gose. The beer is quite drinkable, but it is mis-labelled.

Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahdon ollessa noin sormen paksuinen. Tuoksu on happaman sitruksinen, mutta samalla hieman hunajaisen makea sekä viljainen ja ruohoinen. Lopussa tulee yrttisyyttäkin melko selvästi. Maku on alkuun todella suolainen, mutta se tasaantuu selvästi ja kääntyy sitruunaisen happamaksi. Viljaa ja yrttistä mausteisuuttakin on joukossa, yrttiä etenkin lopussa. Tasapainoinen maku. Suutuntuma on alkuun hyvin suolainen, mutta kuivuu nopeasti ollen yllättävän täyteläinen prosentteihin nähden. Humala ei tunnu, johtuen osiksi vanhasta (BBE 30.9.-15) pullosta. Hieno gose, jossa suola ja happamuus ovat hyvässä tasapainossa. Loistava kesäjuomaksi, koska on myös mukavan kuiva.

Appearance: deeper gold than I expected, largely clear, short and quickly vanishing near-white head. Aroma: typical gose aroma of green apples, lemon zest, cracked wheat, light white wine vinegar, and coriander--that is to say, very enticing. Taste: again, pretty typical gose characteristics, with maybe a bit more salt than usual. Finish: pleasant rush of activated glands at the jawline, lingering lacto tartness over some salt and crackers. Notes: Perfect example of one of my new favorite styles. Where have you been all my life? Bottle from Knightly Spirits, Orlando, Florida.

Clear, hazy hay color. Minimal soapy head. Nose has wheaty gains, coriander, roses, a hint of orange, slight banana, a bit metallic. Slightly tart, dryish grainy flavor, light saltiness. Dry wheat aftertaste with some lactic acid tartness and perryish notes. Light and refreshing texture, medium carbonation.
