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.

Idiosynkrasie (4244) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
500ml bottle [a generous local-local trade add-on due to bartlebier’s bounteousness]. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sourish aroma has salty notes of Sauerkraut with a cathartic effect on the sinuses, hints of brine, a herbal touch of dill. Taste is slightly sourish with hints of Sauerkraut and mustard, subtle malt sweetness, a salty touch, brine, herbal hints of dill, gherkin; minimally biting, super-soft palate, very well balanced, primely refreshing. Excellent.

50 cl bottle from Meny Åsgårdstrand. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is salty with notes of spices, wheat, yeast and fruit. Flavour is salty and light tart with a soft fruit finish. Quite a special beer style. Not my kind of beer

bytemesis (3695) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to summer secret santa. Pours cloudy orange, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Coriander hits first on the aroma, followed by clear notes of lemon, sea breezes, some hay. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, lemony, salty on the finish primarily, some grain. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Pretty decent.

0.5L tap at Gosenchenke Ohne Bedenken (Leipzig). Pours hazy pale with a small white head. Aroma is sour (as expected), with some light malt. Flavor is fairly uni-dimensionally sour with some salt as well. Caraway schnapps helps this! Some sweetness creaps in the middle, but finishes with long, mild sour flavor. Light body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, the beer is quite similar to a geuze from Belgium, and is certainly an interesting regional beer, but not my favorite style.

blipp (6433) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Pretty standard for what I’ve come to expect from this style--tart lemony notes, moderate acidity, a wheaty base, and some light salty notes. Quite drinkable.

Taste: bit salty, sourish, funky, yeast, weird, refreshing, dairy, yoghurt. Aftertaste: funky, bit salty, dairy, weird, yeasty, sourish. Not sure what to think of this.

0.5 l bottle purchased from Hopfen and Maltz in Berlin (great bottle shop!). Very nice gose, not too sour but tart and flavorful. Great sour, easy to drink.

northropfrye (2346) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Light yellow body with some white head, fades quickly, kind of vinous looking. Tart aroma, a touch of mineral and citrus. Taste is sour and milky in a good way. Very smooth. Kind of somewhere in between a beer, a wine and a cider. Nice gose.

bursprak (836) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with small lacings on top. Nose has yoghurt, light lacto, some lemon and cereal. Taste has again yoghurt, lemon juice, light tartness and light bitterness. This was really good!
