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.

Brewed by Hartmannsdorf until 2014 (until 2007 @3.9%), brewed by Reichenbrand in Chemnitz from 2015.

Ljus, nästan klar. Skum som lägger sig. Luktar lite syrligt. Härlig balans av saltvatten, lätt syrlighet. Frisk.

Brewhemia (208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2016
Clear pale yellow pilsner looking. Really nice slightly sweet aroma of rhubarb and a hint of salt. Taste is a good balance of sweet, sour and salty. I like it.

Flaska från SB. Blekorange med vitt skum. Frisk, syrlig doft med citrus och nästan lite bäriga inslag. Mediumkropp, lätt oljig. Syran balanseras upp med lite sötma i smaken. Lagom citrus och fin sälta. Stilig.

Revisited in bottle countless times. Great balance, silky mouthfeel, gentle tartness with pleasant notes of salt & pepper, dry finish. Solid classic gose, perfect introduction to the style.

Stable aroma with some apricots. Light tartness with a rounding salty and malty finish. Light refreshing but could have been more carbonated.

Guldfärgad med vitt skum. Doftar jäst, malt, lite funkigt och salt. Lätt surhet tillsammans med frukt i smaken. Lättdrucken och lite i tunnaste laget men ändå väldigt god! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle from Hopduvel shared by Jan, cheers! Apparently the oldest still existing Gose brand, continued by Reichenbrand after the demise of the original brewery. Medium thick, snow white head, quickly reduced to a thin rim, over a cloudy straw blonde beer with ochre hue. Aroma of soggy white bread, subtle soapy coriander, hint of iron, Sauerkraut, picalilly, pickled sweet pearl onions and gherkins, cereals, straw. Restrained fruitiness in the onset, hints of apple and gooseberry, immediately followed by a soft salty touch and eventually an equally soft, well-placed, mildly drying lactic sourness, soapy touch in the middle of first wheat and then subtle coriander, lingering Sauerkraut-like flavor, very refreshing. This must be the archetype of the style: no real ’extremities’, just the basic profile of a classic Gose with everything in the correct proportions and nothing added that doesn’t belong in the traditional recipe. Highly recommended as the ultimate introduction to the style, from which one can venture further into the realm of more extreme, modern craft Goses.

Keg at Scurreria Beer and Bagel. Genoa. A pale golden coloured pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is tangy citrus, lemon rind, slightly soapy, semi sweet malts. Flavour is composed of tangy citrus, salt, lemon, semi sweet cereal grains, lavender. A bit sickly . Palate is tangy, light bodied, moderate to low carbonation. Ok, but I couldn’t drink a pint.
