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...

ciocanelu (1067) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 8, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma has wheat, honey and lemon. Taste follows with a light lemon tartness but also an underlying honey like flavor. Body is on the lighter side and has a crisp carbonation. Really classic, well made gose.

Ritterguts Gose is one of the better-known longstanding beers in a little-known style. Thanks to the resurgence of Gose, more people should be finding out about this brew. It’s a strange one, as you’d expect from the style. Cloudy yellow pour. Yeasty, salty, lemony, and spicy. Not as spritzy and intensely sour as some of the more modern variants. Still, it’s pleasingly traditional and well-suited for a hot day.

Bottle. Orange color with thin head. Aroma is sourish, some spicy notes. Taste is heavy sour with salty notes. Easy, refreshing drink. But very special and unusual. Not for me, you should get use for that taste, but definitely it was interesting experience.
