COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Horrible! Not my style I guess. Ordinary lager beer aroma. The taste is like a lager beer with salt...

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

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.

Bottle, thanks Will. Nice lightly fruity aroma, pleasant light saltiness, tart, but very easy drinking, good stuff

mR_fr0g (9220) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
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.

Sparf (231) - Östersund, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2016
Halvskum doft av bitter apelsinmarmelad, vete och en aning salt. Ljus färg och ett snabbt halverande skum. Ren Gose-smak med liknande inslag som doften: citrus, mineralsalt och vete/franskbröd. Tunn och aning vattnig men ren kropp, aning för hög kolsyrehalt. Eftersmaken är halvtorr och kort.

Bottle shared. Pretty gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Clean and crisp coriander notes with good maltiness and a nice salty mid-palate and finish. Easy drinking and wonderful for summer!

heman (632) - Tychy, POLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Aromat mokrego zboża, kwasnych cytrusów. W smaku lekkie i bardzo orzeźwiające, z lekko mineralnym i słonym posmakiem.

Orange color, medium white head. Heavy malt aromas, slight yeast character, some spices and herbs. Malt base with a tart taste, like unripe gooseberries. Not sure if I like the taste or not, but a cool beer concept.
